"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."

"The reason why many players slice is because they either do not have sufficient strength in their hands or because they fail to use their hand strength at the crucial moment when the power of the stroke is to be transmitted to the ball.
When the hands do work as they should, the player can actually feel that he is bending the club shaft on the ball. If you cannot feel this, you will not get the full distance of which you are capable.
The majority of players who fail in transmission of power do so because their left hands fails to act as a fulcrum for the right hand to strike against.
The left hand must bear back against the right.
"Good timing of the golf stroke is the secret of both distance and direction. The most common fault in golf is slicing. This is caused by bad timing of the stroke, the wrists failing to snap the club head thru on time." Dunns of Musselburgh Scotland
