TIPS ON THE GOLF GRIP AND ITS VARIATIONS.

Having the palms of the right and left hands opposing each other is a consistent fundamental with all good golf grips .

The position of the club handle as to where it is situated in relation to the fingers and palm of the left and right  hands, or whether or not the little finger of the right hand is interlocked or overlapping the index finger of the left hand, can vary to suit the size of the players hands and fingers. Another option is all ten fingers gripping the club. This method is often chosen by seniors or ladies with smaller hands.

Where the club/grip is positioned in relation to the fingers and palms of each hand can affect control and distance.  Recommended variations are nicely explained in the ‘A GAME GOLF’ video below.

Some degree of finger strength is needed for beginning and  older golfers, or after a layoff. This strengthens up the tendons  in the forearms especially .  Having a golf ball or squash ball handy to squeeze on a regular basis can help with this.

Don’t under-estimate the importance of a sound golf grip. It’s the only connection between the club (the tool) and the Body (the machine). Any slippage or variation will greatly affect contact and ball flight.
