|Golf Tips - Finding That Winning Grip And The Cures For Grip Related Problems
The correct grip is a key fundamental component of a golfer's
game and is required to have a consistently good straight game,
giving you the ability to shoot low scores with ease.
When the grip is faulty, poor shots often result along with an
inconsistent and unreliable game. Therefore it is essential for
your game that your grip is correct if you want to take your
golf to the next level.
Firstly place the club in your left (opposite for lefthanders)
hand, close your left hand around the grip as if you were
shaking somebody's hand. Your thumb should be pointing down the
grip, slightly to the right of centre.
Then bring in the right hand, firstly interlock the little
finger of your right hand with the forefinger of your left hand.
The underside of the grip should be placed on the joints of the
second and third fingers of the right hand. Your right thumb
should also be pointing down the grip, while your right palm
should be facing towards the target with your left hand facing
away from the target.
Two V's should be formed by the thumb and forefinger of each
hand, these should both point somewhere between your right
shoulder and eyes.
When holding the club, the club must be held firmly but with the
minimum of effort. Having the correct grip allows your hands to
work freely with the utmost control while a poor grip leads to a
lack of club head control.
* Your arms and hands are relaxed.
Your left forefinger is linked with the little finger of right
hand, 2 or 3 knuckles should be visible.
* The V's created by the forefinger and thumb on each hand
should point be to between your right shoulder and eyes. These
V's should be pretty much parallel to each other.
* The grip should be comfortable yet held firmly with little
effort, it is vital that the club head does not open or close on
To test that you have a good grip, it should feel as though both
your hands work together as if one. When you lift the club and
move it, your hands should feel comfortable and secure.
Problems and cures for slightly faulty grips: You may find that
you are slicing the ball; this could be due to a problem with
your grip, (although it may be due to other reasons mentioned in
my other article that aims to solve the slice) try rotating your
grip slightly clockwise around the grip; also try holding the
club more in the palm of your left hand.
If you have problems with hooking the ball, make a conscious
effort to feel the ends of the fingers on your right hand
pushing upwards through impact with the ball. This should help
prevent you from closing the clubface on impact and so helps
prevent you from hooking the ball.
