Get a Han­dle on Your Short Game

Grip po­si­tion is the se­cret

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Play Your Best Basics - with ron kaspriske by josh zan­der

If you strug­gle to re­call the ad­just­ments you need to make for var­i­ous shots around the greens, let me sim­plify the process. If you can just get the han­dle of the club in the cor­rect spot at im­pact in re­la­tion to the ball, you’ll hit good short-game shots. It’s lit­er­ally that easy. Where should the han­dle be? It de­pends on the lie. Here I’ll show you how to pre-set the grip po­si­tion at ad­dress for four green­side sce­nar­ios. Your job is to copy these po­si­tions at im­pact. Find out what you need to know to knock it close. –

“Dif­fer­ent lies re­quire dif­fer­ent ap­proaches to the ball.”
