Basic Grip

 

Basic Grip:

 To make solid contact with the ball, the grip needs to be monitored.  A poor grip makes for poor results.  Grips are individual, often suited to ability and preference, but not all grips let you swing correctly.  To swing the club freely the grip pressure and position must be maintained.

 Details:

·         The hands must work together.

·         Position the club in the fingers of the left hand, not in the palm.

·         Place the club in your left hand across the hand’s pad directly under where the fingers meet the hand.  Check to see if your left thumb and forefinger form a V, pointing right of your head.

·         Place the right hand on the club with the first three fingers gripping the shaft.  Your left thumb will fit into the right hand as a hotdog fits its bun, both palms facing each other.  Now, check to see if your right thumb and forefinger form a V, pointing right of your head.

 All the instruction tips here are for the right handed golfer.
