Proper Golf Grip

Posted March 13, 2015 in beginner tips

Your golf grip has a lot to do with the type of shot you will hit as well as your swing path. The middle picture shows a neutral grip, the left picture is a strong grip and the right picture is a weak grip.

  • Neutral Grip: An easy way to check and know if your golf grip is neutral is to look at the “V” that is formed between your forefinger and thumb on each hand. For a right-handed golfer, these “V’s” should point toward your right shoulder. If they are right, you have a strong grip. If they are left, you have a weak grip, so adjust accordingly. The opposite stands for a left-handed player.
  • Strong Grip: For a right-handed golfer, your hands will be rotated more toward the right when you grip the club. A strong grip produces a shot the goes left of center (Draw).
  • Weak Grip: For a right-handed golfer, your hands will be rotated more toward the left when you grip the club. A weak grip produces a shot that goes right of center (Fade).
