Video Golf Tip | A Routine For Your Grip

Golf is a pretty tough game if you have to think about everything. I want you to get things like your grip and posture under your belt so that you do not have to think about them all the time. I am going to give you a routine that will help you memorize where your hands belong on the golf club. Use this when you hit shots. Hold the club up in your right hand, steady the face, make sure the grooves are pointing straight to the sky. Take your left hand, pre-mold it into the correct position, and slip it on, check the face and make sure it has not changed. Then simply open up your right hand and slide it down over your thumb. If you do this routine continuously you will get to where your hands just feel comfortable on the golf club with a good grip. I recommend you do this at home in front of the television set. Sit on a sofa, watch your favorite 30-minute program and during the commercials hold the club up and practice your grip. See what it looks like and begin to feel it. During the show lower your hands and continue the routine, trying to connect what you feel with what you saw. This way you are going to have a chance to own your grip and do it the same way each time. If you have to be thinking about your grip and the target it is much more difficult. I want you playing golf at the target.
