Grip Pressure




By Bobby Eldridge

Golf Grip Lesson - Grip Pressure

Have you ever asked yourself how hard should I hold a golf club?

There's something real common in this country. When we shake people's hands, we kind of know whether you're shaking their hand and it's a little too light, or maybe it's a little too firm.

But when we swing a golf club there's no gauge. There's no one on the other end saying, "Hey, you're holding on too tight."

I have a great golf grip lesson for you. Let me tell you something that will really help, because there really is something down there saying, "Hey, I think you're holding on too tight," or maybe, "You're holding on too softly."

Watch this. The tighter you hold a golf club, the slower the face is to roll over and release. The lighter that you hold a golf club, the easier it is and the quicker the toe will cross over.

So, if you're struggling and you feel like you're hitting the golf ball shorter than you should and you're fading a little bit, lighten up on your grip.

If you feel that maybe you're hitting it left with a little too much hook, and you're really hitting it far, maybe even a little further that you might normally hit it, then maybe you hold on a little too softly.

For those of you that hook the golf ball and you want to hold onto the grip a little tighter, start with the left hand. Hold onto the club with the left hand just a little tighter than the right, but hold on firmer.

Again, if you feel like you're fading, loosen up on it. If you feel like you're hooking, grab onto it just a little bit tighter. Hopefully this golf grip lesson will help you.

Have a great day, and thanks.
