Fixing the Handsy Golf Swing
Some golfers have less rotation of their body and swing too much with their arms.
When you do that, you'll have less weight shift. You won't hit it very far from there.
The reason why you forget to turn your body and shift weight may be different from person to person. Some golfers have too much tension in their grip. Some golfers get too quick at the start of their takeaway.
To prevent you to use too much hands during the backswing, you can try what Jack Nicklaus and Greg Norman were doing.
Hover the Club

Greg Norman said there are two reasons why he was using this technique.

Second, this technique was letting him to promote very smooth takeaway. By hovering the club, it will let you to rotate your body in connection with your arms.
So if you feel like you have handsy golf swing, try this technique. It should help you rotate your body.
