The Correct Golf Grip -
Should be 1st Lesson!
Take a moment to
remember when you started to play
golf, i bet one of
the very first things you were taught was how to apply the correct golf
grip! and there was a very
good reason for that. Without it your
chances of success are going to be dramatically reduced and you will
inevitably suffer from inconsistent performances.
if you take the time to and apply the right
grip that is fundamentally
sound you'll be amazed at how much easier the game will become. Hence
the old saying:
"you never see a good
player with a bad grip, or a bad player with a good grip"
If you were to ask any
of the Top PGA teachers or Tour Players how
significant it is to have the correct golf grip, you would soon realize
its importance. They will all agree that having a golf grip that is
technically right for your physical shape is an integral part of
forming a rock solid foundation to your golfing game.
One of the games great
teachers and players, Tommy Armour once said,
i could stand the
strain, i would devote at least a couple of weeks to the grip in golf
He may well have been
exaggerating slightly but it does go to show how
serious he was in expressing the importance of having the correct golf
grip in relation to producing good golf.
So What is the Correct
Well....as with many aspects
in golf there are
several examples of golf
grips that are technically
correct and this will depend of
factors, such as hand size, hand strength, length of fingers, how your
hands naturally hang, etc.
The most common golf grip
is used by the majority of Touring Professionals today, and would be
highly recommended by all Teaching Professionals is the Vardon
Overlapping Golf Grip (or
variation of), invented by one of
Players, Harry Vardon.......
