What it's for: Straight solid drives
The principle you use to square the clubface at impact is the same as the one hockey players use to hit a slap shot. In hockey, the shooter's hands are separated as he winds up.
Borrow that move while you're waiting on the tee box to free up your hinging action and release. You'll hit a more accurate drive when it's your turn to play.
