How To Change Grip

How To Change Grip

Here is a tip for you juniors, or anyone for that matter, that is having grip problems. If someone comes to work with me at the range and the biggest problem that they have is the grip we might try to work on it, but if he has other problems I am going to work on them first. The worst place in the world to work on a grip change is on the range or on the golf course. The best place to work on a grip change is at home. What I mean by that is that once we find out what we want to do with your grip and make the appropriate changes I am going to ask you to show me what the grip looks like and I am going to ask you to turn the club up so that your hands are at eye level with the clubhead up in the air. Then I am going to ask you to take it home with you because the best place to work on your grip is in front of a TV set when you are watching TV for about five minutes a night. Just put your club up to eye level, it should feel very comfortable to you, and squeeze it very lightly. Make sure you have the grip that we worked on. If you do that what was uncomfortable now in about three or four days will really start feeling pretty comfortable for you. So, if we are having grip problems we are not going to work on them on the course, we are going to work on them at home.
