Find your feel

Golf Monthly - - Instructions -

Poor ball strik­ing of­ten stems from ex­cess ten­sion. When you are ner­vous or try­ing to hit the ball too hard, your grip pres­sure can be­come too tight and you lose the mo­bil­ity in your wrists and your feel of the club. Take a look at Ernie Els. There is not an ounce of ten­sion in his body and a bet­ter ball striker you will not find. To re­dis­cover your touch, as you grip the club feel as if the fore­fin­ger and thumb of both hands are in con­trol – the rest are there purely for sup­port. This will soften your grip and get the club mov­ing with much more flow, re­leas­ing as it should through the ball.
