The Golf Grip

Okay, how to grip the Golf Club… This is probably the most important part of your golf swing.

For example, if you have a bad grip, you will need a bad grip to hit a good shot.

If you have a good grip, you will need a good swing to hit a good shot.

The grip is everything in golf. For most of you, your swing is probably bad and your grip is bad too. (Not being harsh, just being honest)

So my advice, don’t change your grip or your swing if it’s working for you and you are already a scratch golfer.

You can see many scratch golfers who can play with a bad grip and a bad swing. But you NEVER see a scratch golfer who can play with a bad grip and a good swing.

Probably the most notable pro golfer who does this is Paul Azinger. Paul Azinger has one of the most strongest grip in golf with a hockey style swing. (well, maybe that’s exaggerating, he DOES has really good knock-down shots which I envy…)

OKAY, how do you grip it correctly MAX?

Okay, here’s my way. First, you get your hands together like you are going to pray so your hands are facing each other. Then naturally put your hands on the club without twisting. Make sure your grip is relaxed like noodle or you just wacked it. (This is a tip that worked for me after I read the book by George Knudson, The Natural Golf Swing)

Anytime tension grows in your grip, you will hit the ball left and right maybe not during practice, but when you are hitting that drive on the par 5 where bets are going to be settled.

Relaxation in your grip is the key, this will relax you and your whole swing, just watch Freddy Couples play. :)
