- Grab a golf club and rest
the club face on the ground, making sure that the face of the club head
is squarely aligned to the target. Extend your left hand and place it
onto the grip end of the club, with the back of your hand facing the
- Close your fingers around
the grip, so that the shaft runs diagonally across the 2nd joint of the
index finger and the palm. This forms a combination and palm grip.
- Now close your hand so that
your thumb is positioned on top of the shaft, or slightly to the right
and position the index finger underneath the shaft, as if it were
pulling a trigger.
- To check that you are in the
right position, you should notice when you look down that......a) there
is a "V" shape formed between the thumb and index finger which should
point to your right shoulder and......b) you should only be able to see
the first 2 knuckles of the index and middle fingers.
- Now with your right hand
outstretched, place it on the shaft, with the palm facing the target.
- Close your first 3 fingers
around the shaft so that the 3rd finger is touching the index finger of
the left hand.
- The little finger should now
overlap the index finger of the left hand.
- Now close the palm of your
right hand so it is covering the left thumb. At this point another "V"
shape should be formed whcih points just inside your right shoulder.
Congratulations, you have
now formed the Correct Harry Vardon Golf Grip!
