Good Golf Does Begin with a Good Grip

If you go to the driving range at a professional golf event, you will see a vast array of golf swings. However, you will also see that although all professional golfers swing the club differently, they all have a good hold on the golf club by way of a sound grip.

A correct grip is the most fundamental aspect of the golf game, yet too many golfers ignore this integral facet of the game – sadly to the detriment of their games.

The Correct Grip

Ensuring that you have a sound grip will put you well on the way to improving your ball striking and lowering your scores.

A proper grip demonstrates the following characteristics

Left Hand – The handle/grip of the club is held predominantly in the fingers of the left hand. That is, across the middle joint of the forefinger and across and above the base of the last three fingers.

Right Hand – The handle/grip of the club should lie across the base of the two middle fingers (where the two middle fingers meet the palm).

As you grip the club correctly, you should note the following

  1. The “V” formed by the thumb and the forefinger of the left hand pointing toward the middle of the right shoulder;
  2. Two-and-a-half knuckles, or the logo on the glove or left hand;
  3. A slight cupping or dish-angle in the left wrist;
  4. The “V” formed by the thumb and the forefinger of the right hand pointing toward the right ear;
  5. The palm of the right hand pointing primarily to the target; and
  6. The hands molded together as a unit as the thumb of the right hand fits neatly into the palm of the left hand.

Ensure that you grip the golf club correctly – as you do this, you will notice an increased sensation of freedom in your golf swing that will enable you to release the golf club powerfully as you hit long and straight golf shots!

Good Golfing!

PING

nunchuck

Last year PING had the best-selling driver in the G30 model. This year, their new PING G has attracted a new set of devotees to the PING clan.
What the G driver offers is what every golfer desires – faster club head and ball speed. Using proprietary Turbulator Technology, VorTec and face/crown transition to combine for more efficient air flow, there is definitely a noticeable difference over the G30 version – all good.
The T9S Titanium face is thinner and hotter for maximum distance and deflection. The club’s adjustability with its 5-lobe hosel sleeve, allows ±1 degree of loft adjustment.
Another improvement is the DragonFly Technology –

Having problems with your swing? – Fix your slice! by Johnny Miller

I recently was examining swing sequences of some of the greatest players in history. Knowing that some of these players favored a draw as their standard shot while others preferred a fade, I sought to identify swing features within each group that would explain their respective ball-flight tendencies. Something profound emerged that I think will benefit all golfers, especially those cursed with a wicked slice.

What I found was this: Virtually every accomplished fader of the ball–from Jack Nicklaus to Tiger Woods–displayed a straight left arm at the top of the backswing. Conversely, those who preferred a draw–players like Arnold Palmer and Bobby Jones–maintained a slight bend at the elbow.

This discovery is great news for most slicers, as they tend to do by accident what intentional faders do on purpose. In this article I’ll explain why the dynamic works, and how a simple swing change will make a powerful draw your standard shot.
