You often hear players talking about getting "disconnected" on the backswing. Often this refers to losing grip pressure at the top of the backswing, i.e., to partially letting go of the club.
It's good to have a light grip, but not that light.
In this swing tip video, Martin Hall, Director of Instruction at Ibis Golf and Country Club, shares a drill to help you get the feel of maintaining constant grip pressure. Insert a couple of tees in the positions Hall demonstrates, and you'll get the feeling of staying connected at the top of the swing.
It'll also serve to fight the bad habit of re-gripping during your swing, which never turns out well.
