how to hold a golf club: hinge and re-hinge your wrist for a powerful swing
Are you holding the club wrong? If you want to swing effortlessly then you need to lose your strong grip.

He admits that it will feel strange at first and you will waste 20-30 hits right but after a while, your wrists will feel the difference. Your wrists will be loose like a hinge.
