We watch animals seemingly effortlessly go up a tree. Jump over a fence. Capture their prey. Years ago I was watching a National Geographic show on television that featured a cobra and mongoose in mortal combat. The mongoose won easily. I got my hands on the video (some of it is in my INTRO VIDEO over there in the right column). I slowed it down. Studied it for days. Again and again trying to get what it was that allowed this little creature to apply so much force. We’ve watched a cat play with its prey. They slap it around with their paws. Mongoose didn’t do that. Didn’t try to slap the cobra to the ground.
Rather - it used its UPPER BODY to lever forward striking the cobra to the ground and killing it with its teeth. It even used the ground (which I feature in my MONGOOSE GOLF SWING TUTORIAL VIDEO) as part of the total attack. So I learned from the animal how to invent a new golf swing. Top down. Strike the golf ball don’t just hit at it. Use the ground. Over time - I refined the technique. I learned the need to separate my hands if I wanted to wield the club. I realized this was the central weakness of almost every golfer. Even the pros end up losing their grip on the club - especially the driver. Also - I notice them cutting the ball a great deal because they don’t quit get the face lined up at impact. Again - for a right-handed player - they just don’t get the club around fast enough. Why?
The little finger of their right-hand is hooked around the forefinger of their left-hand (the reverse for lefties). So part of the strength of their right hand is taken out of the swing. By separating the hands - the right-hand down a couple of inches - they have the strength of the whole hand - AND - a much better pivot point becomes available to apply force to the golf ball. All of this is demonstrated slowly and repeatedly in my TUTORIAL.
MORE POWER LESS EFFORT
I claim the makers of golf clubs knew subconsciously that one day - one day - the MONGOOSE GOLF SWING would appear and need the long grip wrapping. If you watch my INTRO VIDEO - you’ll see a short clip of a swordsman demonstrating how to use a sword in combat with another swordsman. The sword has a long grip wrapping (note in the picture the extended grip wrapping on the sword. Okay - you’re right - she’s not there to sell swords). Why the long grip wrapping? YOU MUST SEPARATE YOUR HANDS if you want to apply force with a sword. YOU MUST BE ABLE TO WIELD IT. Same goes for the golf stick. YOU MUST BE ABLE TO WIELD IT. And most people can’t do that because they’ve been taught to meld their hands together by overlapping a finger or overlapping two fingers. People with small hands or generally weak hands - such as us older folk - add to our own exasperation by employing the conventional grip concepts.
Pick up an axe. Pick up a baseball bat. Pick up a rake. A shovel. Now bunch up your hands at the end of these tools by overlapping a finger. Now wield the tool. Lift it. Move it back and forth in the air. Can’t do it. Why? Because you need the strength of both hands at DIFFERENT POINTS on the tool handles (or bat). When we use a shovel - we have one hand quite a ways down on the handle. Why? It provides the needed leverage point to use the tool at all. The same goes for the golf club. By separating the hands each hand is instantly stronger. Try it. Cost nothing. A little time.
