It’s human nature to squeeze the club and try to hit the ball harder when you need more distance.
The problem is that the complete opposite will give you much better results. Hold the club as loosely as you can throughout the entire golf swing.
You’ll feel the club swinging (rather than hitting) the ball. You’ll bring more clubhead speed.
Added side benefits are that your tempo will be greatly improved automatically if you can manage to maintain loose arms and hands throughout your swing. This means more efficient contact and more consistency too.
Sometimes logic leads us astray…hold that club softly and get some instant improvement.
