Simple steps for getting your hands on right
How to improve your grip.
Isee a lot of amateurs holding the club too tightly. I notice it most when they try to waggle.The movement looks sti and short. To swing correctly, the right amount of grip pressure – and where you apply it – is important.
You should feel the club being supported by the last three ngers of your left hand (above, left). Those ngers should grip the rmest. My longtime teacher, the late Stan Thirsk, used to remind me to keep the club in the ngers of my left hand and never let it slip into the palm.
In the right hand, the middle two ngers do most of the work.The fore nger and thumb of the right hand should feel relaxed. In fact, I’ve seen many great players, including Ben Hogan and Fred Couples, practice with those two ngers clear o the club (above, right).
Back to waggling. With softer grip pres- sure, your waggle will be looser and will help relax your hands and arms. During the swing, the right hand should be free enough to re the clubhead through the hitting area. –
