Video Golf Tip | Left Hand Grip Fix
By Katherine Marren

Getting the proper grip is one of the most important pre swing fundamentals in the golf swing. It is not untypical to see students with their left hand underneath the handle which causes a lot of problems in their golf swing. Mostly their club will swing up and their wrist works the wrong way and their arms kind of fold at the top. So getting that left hand in a great position is really important to be able to hinge the club and have some width on the backswing. One of my favorite drills to get that left hand in the proper position is to actually start with the club to the side. Then you have to reach over which gets the left hand on top of the handle. Now you can see two knuckles and the V of your left hand is pointed at your right shoulder, which is the correct position. I want to get my right hand and focus on my two middle fingers. That second middle joint goes right on the bottom of the club. Right on the back of the spine. Then my hand just closes. Now I have a great grip and I can make some really good swings and get the club in a great position. Try this drill and you will be able to get your left hand in a good position every time.

Chipping From Deep Rough Hit this similar to a sand shot with an open face, steep backswing but not much of a follow through
Increasing Power on the Golf Swing If you want to throw a club you would use your hands, arms and pivot as you went from your right side to your left and the golf swing should be no different.
Thin and Topped Shots Thin/Topped shots are not caused by picking your head up but rather lifting your entire body, concentrate on keeping the same posture throughout the swing
