"It is highly desirable that we have all the hand strength it is possible for us to acquire. The reason why many players "slice" is because they either do not have strong hands or they fail to use their hand strength at the critical moment when the power of the stroke is to be transmitted to the ball. A golfer is no stronger than his hands." Original Golf Fundamentals, Dunns of Musselburgh Scotland

"Golf is said to be 90% mental game. A banker who subscribed to that theory appeared for his regular Sunday morning round with one of those chaise-longues-on-wheels so popular for lawns and terraces. "What's your caddy dragging that thing along for?" "Caddy, hell," said the banker. "He's my psychiatrist."

"If the shot is to be pushed the hands remain ahead of the ball at impact. If an ordinary shot is required, then the wrist can be allowed to 'throw' or 'flick' the club. Poor golfers often slice because of an untrained right hand." Henry Cotton

"The actual zone of the approach shot begins, let us say, at a hundred and twenty-five yards from the green. The heavily lofted clubs - the mashie and niblick - put on under spin, which stops the ball comparatively dead; the other iron clubs put on over spin, which causes the ball to run. These then are the essential principles of approach play - the right thumb down the shaft, the stiff or flexible wrists, and the hands, either kept behind the club or pushed through in advance of it." Alex Smith, Carnoustie, Scotland
