How to apply the proper grip pressure on a golf club

All great players have good hands, and that’s why it’s so crucial to develop a
proper grip on the golf club.

First, should you use an interlocking or overlapping golf grip? Someone with large
hands probably should use an overlapping grip. Small hands, an interlocking

Next, comes grip balance within the confines of each hand. The weight of the
shaft should be balanced so you always have control throughout the golf swing.
Another important element is the position of your left thumb on the shaft.
Players who extend their thumbs hit the ball high and straight. Those who
shorten the length of the thumb are likely to hit the golf ball low and left.

Grip pressure is a big checkpoint.

Try holding the club as tightly as you can, then hold it loosely. The correct
pressure is somewhere in between. Finally, see how many knuckles are showing on
your left hand. If you see most of them, you’ll likely hit a hook or draw.
Fewer, and the ball will go high and right. Experiment with these basics and
you’ll find a grip that’s best for your hands

How hard should you grip the club? ANY club, driver, fairway, chip, putter. The real question is how EASY should you grip it!!

It must NEVER be tight. Think of your grip this way: You have a fragile bird egg in your hand. How hard can you squeeze before the egg breaks. Well, you DON’T want the egg to break, unless you are mean, and then unsubscribe, you cold hearted monster!! That’s how EASY your grip should be. This is extremely tough to master, but try and
be conscience of it the next time on the course. You may be
pleasantly surprised!!
