Watch out for these grip no-nos!
Unfortunately, it gets some attention, but not enough. I know this because I see it. I see lots of sloppy grips—where the hands are separated from each other or not positioned correctly on the club. It is critical to ensure that your grip is spot-on to allow for easy hinging and a square face at impact.
COMMON GRIP CONNECT NO-NOs
A Palm Grab
A common tendency is to place the shaft in the palm of your hand, not your fingers. A palm grab will zap power and make it a real challenge to hinge the club properly.
The most common grip culprit is the mis-matched grip, where both Vs created by your thumb and index finger point to opposite shoulders…YIKES!
At the top of your backswing, watch out for daylight with your glove hand. Create a firm connection with this hand on the shaft. Make sure yours are in sync, as one unit.
Daylight with the Glove Hand
At the top of your backswing, watch out for daylight with your glove hand. Create a firm connection with this hand on the shaft.
Instead, we need our Vs of both hands to match. A synced grip, where both Vs point to an area between your back ear and shoulder, will give you the best chance to square the face at impact with the least amount of effort…Woo Hoo! With a neutral grip, more pars will certainly be in your future.
