Ready, Set, Swing
Six ways to improve your game without ever swinging the club
Proper Grip Pressure = Good Tempo
I don’t like to use the word “grip.” It doesn’t conjure the right image in a golfer’s mind. It sounds too much like trying to squeeze blood from rubber—not a good idea. I prefer to say “holding the club.”
FIND IT: Your hands should be firm, but your arms relaxed (above right). On a scale of one to 10, the pressure at which you hold the club should be a seven. Anything less, and you could lose the club; anything tighter, and you might not be able to swing. Remember, it’s a golf swing, not a golf hit. Swings come from good, free-flowing pressure, not death grips.
