Subject: Grip (from tips section)

Hey Luke,

I've been asking you a ton of questions on here. Hopefully your good with that.

Here's another.

Can you please elaborate on the following statement?

"The trigger finger of your right hand (right-handed golfer) should exert little to no pressure on the grip at all."

Why is this case and why does one hit more solid shots with the trigger finger disengaged?

The dominant index finger has the tendency in many golfers to add too much "ooomph" to your shot through impact. This results in a pull to the left or a duck hook. For example, Ben Hogan used to take his right index finger completely off the grip during his swing which eliminated his natural duck hook tendency. You will find this same thing happening when you putt.
