I don't use YouTube much and must apologize for not getting to know your swing thoughts - you're a "Hogan" man - Hogan was Norwood to the top of the backswing, to the Vardon Drop but then all Hogan, how he got his hips to synch with his arms at the same time is as baffling as Bobby Jones being able to hold his wrists from breaking at impact - awesome to look at but just to deep to connect with.
Hey how are you. I'll try to stay more in contact. I teach only one swing - Joe Norwood - so my position on grip pressure is only for this swing.
The pressure from the hands are not the fingers or the thumb and forefinger as many believe, rather the emphasis on grip pressure is with the palms of the hands - the left palm hugs diagonally into the handle while the right pushes the right palm into the left thumb and forefinger top hand joint and on the backswing the right hand must exert a lot of pressure to force the right thumb down at the top of the backswing. Lots of grip pressure, 15-25% fingers - 75-85% the meat of the hand inside palm muscles forcing the hands to stay in position. Right thumb and forefinger is directional only. You pressure the right thumb and forefinger and the rest of the hand will be set free to wobble. Hold tight with the palms and circle the right thumb and forefinger into the upper shoulder joint - then BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM
