Gripping the club correctly is crucial to hitting good golf shots. Where your hands are, will directly affect the clubface.
If you are a right-handed golfer the following applies to you, Lefties do the opposite hands.
1. Grip the club with the 3 lower fingers of your left hand, then close your hand with the meaty part of your palm on the grip. Place the left thumb down the grip. You should see TWO knuckles on your left hand.
2. Put your right hand on and form a ‘V’ with your thumb and pointer finger. Wrap your middle 3 fingers on the grip-à For an OVERLAPPING grip; place your right pinky finger over the left pointer and middle finger. *see picture.
3. Grip pressure should be very light as it would be if you were holding a baby bird. If you squeeze the grip too much, you will kill the bird aka your golf shot.
4. Don’t hold the club across the palm- Hold the club with your fingers.
5. Practice makes perfect practice.
I’ve been playing golf for a long time and I will say that my grip would change once in a while. I would have to continue working on it to make it consistently the same. The grip is the most important part of the beginning of your swing and should be studied in order to create a solid foundation.
Grip it and rip it!
