Importance of Your Golf Grip

How you place your hands on the golf club is critical and it is one of the most important basics because your hands have a relationship to the clubface. Grip can be made really easy when you place your hands on the club.

  • When I hinge over from my hips just a little bit my hands naturally curve inwards. That is one thing that is in your favor.
  • Two is that the manufacturer has done all the work for you. Here is the attitude in which the club sits on the ground. I am going to allow the club to just fall into my fingers, or I am supporting the golf club with my hand. The grip is in the perfect spot. When people want to look at the grip to make sure it is on correctly they always turn their hands. Don't do that, just support the club.

Get a Feel for the Club in Your Hands

When you watch the guys and gals on Tour, when they are on the tee waiting for a shot they are always doing this. They have their club in their lead hand and they are always swinging it. They are always kind of getting a feel for how the club is moving, how their arm is rotating but they are always starting with it in this position and this attitude. This is a slick and easy way for you to place your hands on the club. It works for every single golf club that you are swinging. The putter is a little bit different and we will talk about that later.
