PART VII: Do the TV Drill with Your Grip
Working on your grip over the winter is the easiest thing of all, because you can do it in the evenings while you’re watching your favorite television show.
Simply put your hands on the club correctly, take them off and put them back on, repeating this as many times as you would like – 100 times a night will find you eventually feeling comfortable with your grip.
- But make sure it’s a good grip, so you don’t ingrain bad habits. There is a lot of leeway in the way various golfers hold the club, but all have one thing in common – a good grip should be unified with the hands not placed in opposition to each other. Your grip should allow you to swing the club with a great deal of freedom. Too many amateurs play with opposing hands – for example, the left hand too strong or turned too far to the right and the right hand too weak or turned too far to the left … or vice versa. Opposing hands stifle a free swing.
- It’s not really important whether you use an overlapping or interlocking or 10-finger grip, but it is critical that your hands do not oppose one another, and that they are set on the club so they can swing and turn freely together.
