The grip maybe one of the most important lessons in the golf swing, because it is what connects you to the club. It is also hard to provide tips that relate to the grip because everyone feels comfortable holding onto the club in their own way. There are many different grips and all capable of producing quality golf. There is one grip tip that can be applied across the board by every golfer, and it is that the grip should be relaxed in order to promote maximum club head speed and a clean strike. Many players squeeze onto the grip too tight, resulting in tense wrists and shoulders, and those players lose power as a result.
How do you grip a baseball before throwing it? You hold it with a relaxed grip so that your throwing motion is fluid, not rigid. The same concept applies to swinging a golf club. Work on a grip pressure that will allow you to swing freely while still controlling the club and you will be a better golfer for the effort.
