Tried it out yesterday night at the range, reminded myself to relax my grip, not only the pain is not there after the driving but my ball flights were more consistent and straight. Realised when held with a tight grip, not only fingers hurt but the shoulders super tensed up, therefore cannot hit good shots..

Smurfxactly!

your coach should be able to spot your tight grip... wonder why he did not

hahha. my dad's friend always say "hold the club as if you are holding a bird with both hands. holding too tight will suffocate it, holding too loose it will fly away".

Another thought is, hold it like you are holding a steering wheel while driving ...

Yeah. from experience, maintaining a constant grip pressure is really important.

if you tighten or loosen your grip halfway while swinging, bad things might most probably happen. lol.

I rested for one week, still the same.
If still persistent, will visit orthopedist soon.

Steroid injection
Or try the anthler spray, assuming you are not a professional golfer

If you are experiencing pain on your right elbow...

It could either be a Tennis elbow syndrome or a Golfer's elbow.

I had mine and went to a massage theraphy session and sauna to removed the pain away.

The best advice to give you right now is to consult a good physical therapist who could diagnosed the pain. You see it may not be Muscular pain but from Uric acid.

I know becoz I have experienced it. Its not from holding the club tight. But its the accumulation of "Uric acid" at your fingers...and may also happen on our knee joints or feet too.

You have to find the real culprit first and fast to avoid further injury.

In my own case, I am taking massage therapy and sauna sessions 3x a month to ease and maintain a less painful way to play Golf.
