Having the correct golf grip for your swing is essential to reaching your full potential as a golfer.

Correct Golf Grip on a Golf Club
When looking for the correct golf grip on a golf club, consider the following:
- Lead Hand Placement: the handle of the club should be positioned at the base of the fingers, which enables wrist movement and function during the swing. A grip that is too high in the hand can lock the wrists and result in a loss of power and control.
- Hand Placement: the grip can be classified as strong, weak, or neutral, but it’s advisable to avoid the extremes to make controlling the ball’s direction easier.
- Trail Hand: similar to the lead hand, the handle should run through the fingers instead of the palm to ensure proper wrist use.
- Connecting the Hands: most golfers use either an overlap or interlock grip, but some can also perform well with a baseball grip where the hands are separate on the club.
