Golf Grip Tips To Fix Your Swing

Researching golf grip tips to fix your golf swing is a very wise decision. Since your hands are your only contact with the club, it definitely affects the flight of your ball. Whether you hit a slice or a hook, you can change your grip and immediately correct you fault.

Types Of Golf Grips

Strong: A strong grip is one in which your left hand (for a right-handed golfers) is turned to the right if you are looking straight down at it. In fact, you should be able to see 2-3 knuckles of your left hand when you look down at it.

Your right hand is turned under just a bit, to mold with that strong left hand on the club. Having your hands on the club in this fashion encourages your clubface to rotate rapidly through impact, without any extra manipulation from your hands.

This grip produces a draw, and if abused, can result in a snap hook that gets you in a lot of trouble.

Weak: A weak grip is one where you left hand is turned more to your left (counter-clockwise), to the point where you mind only see one knuckle when you look down at it at address. In combination to that, your right hand is also more on top of the club, where you might have up to three knuckles showing.

Having your hands on the club like this promotes a fade, but can quickly result in a big slice if you’re not careful. This grip will allow you to release your club fully, without holding back at all.

Neutral: This is the best of both worlds and should be the grip of choice for golfers just starting out. When you look down at your hands you’ll see 2 knuckles of your left hand at the most, and 1-11/2 knuckles showing in your right hand.

This will allow you to release the club naturally. You don’t have to go at it hard with this grip.

Fixing A Slice

To fix a slice, you’ll want to bring your left hand over more, very much a stronger grip. This will make it easier to square your clubface and get draw spin on the ball.

Fix A Hook

This is the exact opposite to the slice. You’ll want to bring your left hand more to your left, or counter-clockwise, so your clubface doesn’t close too fast through impact.
