I'd like to hear opinions about swing technique, specifically if you consider yourself a handsy player or a big muscle player/swinger.
I practiced the past week working on the fundamentals of Jim McLean's 8 step swing - I hit the ball nicely, solid, accurate, etc. Then I practiced the past two days using a more handsy swing - basically not thinking of anything else except swing the club with my hands and hitting the ball. I hit the ball so much more consistently and solidly using my "handsy" swing - and it was much much easier for me to repeat.
I'm a 12 hcp and have been playing for quite some time, and I'm surprised that there is not more written about the proper use of the hands in the golf swing - I think it is detrimental for golfers to ignore this vital power source, and shot-shaping technique.
