Golf Ball curvature is the effect of a misaligned club face
at impact. Your club face is controlled
by wrist cock, arm rotation and release.
All three of these aspects is directly controlled by the hold or
individual grip of the club. The
quickest and simply the easiest means of improving your game is by perfecting
your grip. A perfect grip will improve
an imperfect swing plane, an imperfect swing path and imperfect impact.
Utilizing a gripping procedure will allow you to position
your hands on the club consistently every time you swing the golf club.
Step 1- allow your arms to hang freely by your sides as you
position the club under the heel pad of your left hand with the club planed and
the club face square.
Step 2-elevate the club and establish the width of the swing.
With the club in front of you position your right hand on the club. Connecting the hands by placing your life
line on top of the thumb.
Grip check points include with the left hand include: heel pad on top, thumb to the right of center
and no gap between the thumb and the base of the hand. Right hand check points include: life line covers the thumbs, trigger finger
to the side of the grip and no gap. The golfer has three options to connect the
hands: overlap grips allows for more
wrist cock, an interlocking allows for more direction control and a baseball
grip allows for a higher trajectory.
Perfect your grip and perfect your game. The only contact you have with the club is
your grip. A perfect hold will perfect
your ball flight.
