Pre-Mold The Proper Golf Grip to Improve Your Rotary Swing

Pre-Mold The Proper Golf Grip to Improve Your Rotary Swing

Another key to help you make a rotary golf swing is to have a good grip on the golf club. When we’re swinging our golf club in a full swing fashion what is important is that the club is resting in your fingers. Now what I mean by that is when I open up my hand, you can see how the club is resting on the fingers.

Correct Golf Grip Technique

Many people make the mistake and they get the club up here in their palms. That makes it difficult to square the face at impact and make the ball go straight. We all want straight shots. What I’m going to ask you to do is take your left thumb and forefinger and put them together. Crinkle your fingers and turn your hand a little bit so it’s rotated.

Pre-Molding Your Hand in Golf

Now all your going to do is slip it on with this heel pad first. This in essence is pre-molding your hand in golf grip position before it ever goes on the club only just slide it on. We take the right hand, we again pre-mold it. Thumb and forefinger together, crinkle the fingers and now let this lifeline pocket just cover up that thumb.

Now you’ll notice when I have my grip in a good position, my hands are working together as a team. They’re compatible, this line between my left thumb and forefinger and this line between my right thumb and forefinger are parallel to each other and they’re both going up here towards my right shoulder. It’s very important in full swing because it helps the clubface to square up at impact and again that makes the ball go straight. So if you want to hit good full-swing shots, let’s get a grip that’s in the fingers and make sure this line and this line are parallel to each other and both going up towards your right shoulder.
