WHAT’S IN A GRIP?
If there is one significant di erence between Jordan Spieth’s swing and most of his Tour colleagues it lies in is his grip.
It’s almost an overlapping-interlocking grip hybrid. Instead of using one or the other, he sits the left index finger on top of the right hand and slightly interlocked with his right pinkie.
But the most important aspect of his grip is his weak left hand and strong right hand. His left hand is weak (turned toward the target) which for most amateur golfers might promote a slice. Whereas his strong right hand grip (with the hand turned away from the target) would encourage a draw or hook.
This opposing grip combination is certainly not text book but Spieth uses it to great e ect to control the clubface during his swing.
