You're going to have to explain this one a little better.

My golf instructor asked me to grip the club in my usual way and hold it out level on our first lesson. He tried to pull it from me, but I held fast.

Guess what? It was a mistake.

He traded places with me and I pulled the club right out of his hands.

It seems that you have to hold the club only barely enough to keep it from flinging down the fairway. Let the head to the work once you have started it towards its target.

My problem was that I couldn't hit a driver. Once I learned this lesson, I was smackin' 'em out there with the best of them. I tried a three iron with this new-founded wisdom.

Holy cow. Straight and effortless! The club just went through the ball like it wasn't even there.

No shock. No problem through the grass. It just went. Like there wasn't a ball on the ground.

Hope I've done the concept justice.
