Golf Swing Help : Golf Swing Help The Grip The Grip : The Grip When you pick up a golf club your hands are the only part of your body that touch the club. For many years the hands (grip) have often been referred to as the steering wheel of the golf swing. I don’t believe this could be more true. Gripping the golf club correctly makes playing this game a much better experience The Grip : The Grip Gripping the golf club at first glance does not seem like a very difficult thing to do, however, it can take a lot of trial and error to figure out the correct grip for you. This is a very interesting aspect to the game of golf. Gripping the golf club is a VERY INDIVIDUAL thing for everyone that plays golf. There are no two grips alike. You can only find what works for you through hitting golf balls. I can and will guide you, but ultimately, results on the golf course speak louder than me. Left Hand : Left Hand 1. Club Goes Across the Left Palm Place the golf club up in your left hand, the golf club goes across the left palm- from the base of the forefinger to the pad above the pinky. Left Hand : Left Hand 2. Wrap Palm Around Top of the Grip Now, hold the handle steady with your left fingers and wrap your palm around the top of the grip. Right Hand : Right Hand Now that the left hand is in place you are going to place the right hand on the golf club. Right Hand : Right Hand 3. Bring your Right Hand Towards the Bottom of your Left Hand With your right hand on the side of your right leg, slowly bring it towards the bottom of the golf club. Right Hand : Right Hand 4. Fold your Right Hand Around the Fingers of the Left Hand The right hand will be placed on the golf club more in the fingers than the palm. You will simply fold the right hand around the fingers of the left. Right Hand : Right Hand 5. Both Palms MUST Face Each Other BOTH PALMS MUST ALWAYS FACE EACH OTHER. It is not a difficult thing to do but it is mandatory, no gray area. The Grip : The Grip In the next section I will show you some variations of the grip that will help you find the one that works best for you. Grip Variations : Grip Variations There are multiple ways to grip a golf club. Although it sounds overwhelming, it truly is not. Once you begin to experiment you will eliminate four or five of them instantly. I will give you a guide to get you started on the right track. Interlocking Grip : Interlocking Grip If you have small hands and fingers, the interlocking grip will probably work best for you. It helps you wrap your fingers and palm around the grip handle. Overlapping Grip : Overlapping Grip If you have large hands, the overlapping grip will probably work best for you. The Grip : The Grip The above-mentioned grips are the proper way to hold a club- however there are three different ways you can apply them to the golf club. The Grip - Weak : The Grip - Weak You can grip the golf club in a weak position (no knuckles of the left hand showing) The Grip - Neutral : The Grip - Neutral You can grip the golf club in a neutral position (one knuckle of the left hand showing) The Grip - Strong : The Grip - Strong You can grip the golf club in a strong position (2 or 3 knuckles of the left hand showing) The Grip : The Grip During your experimenting, if the golf ball has a tendency to curve to the right, you will want to move BOTH hands to the right (strong). When you move the hands make sure you do it slowly. The Grip : The Grip If the golf ball has a tendency to curve to the left, you will want to move BOTH hands slowly to the left (weak) The Grip : The Grip Now, if the golf ball is flying without a curve, you have the correct grip for you. DO NOT EXPERIMENT WITH ANY OTHER GRIP. Grip Pressure : Grip Pressure OK, you have found the correct grip for you. There is one last item we need to deal with. The amount of pressure you apply to the club plays a major role in how you swing the golf club. Grip Pressure : Grip Pressure The tighter you grip the golf club the slower your arms will swing and the longer the clubface will take to release in the downswing (causing a slice). Grip Pressure : Grip Pressure This is a good thing if you HOOK the golf ball. This will definitely stop the ball from curving from right to left. Grip Pressure : Grip Pressure On the other hand if you have problems SLICING the golf ball this amount of grip pressure will make the ball slice more. Grip Pressure : Grip Pressure If you are struggling with slicing the golf ball, you will have to hold the golf club like you were holding a baby’s hand. Gently, the lighter you grip the golf club the faster the club will swing and the quicker the club will release in the downswing Grip Pressure : Grip Pressure If you do not have any problems with the ball curving, you have found the correct amount of grip pressure.
