The golf grip, to a very large degree, determines whether the face will be square to the direction line, open, closed, or even hooded, therefore whether the ball flies straight, is sliced, hooked,
smothered, or even skied.  That is why the pros will tell you that the golf grip is the most important single factor in the game.  Actually there is nothing mysterious about the golf grip. 


Gripping the club while the club head lies on the ground positions the club in the palm of your hand rather than in your fingers, which will weaken your grip.  Gripping the club too tight can cause thin,
weak shots that slice.A fundamentally sound grip helps you create power and feel at the same time. 

One of the most common errors among golfers is a weak lead-hand (left hand for the right-handed golfer) grip that is too much in the palm.  But the position of the club face is largely determined
by the golf grip, and the path of the club head is influenced con­siderably by the stance.  Gene Sarazen has said the golf grip is 75 per cent of golf. 


The fingers are the most sensitive parts of our hands.  The most common faults in the golf grip are holding the club entirely in the fingers of the left hand, placing the left hand too much on top of
the shaft, and getting the right hand under the shaft.  When the club is held entirely in the fingers of the left hand and that hand is on top of the shaft with three or four knuckles showing, there is an
overpowering tendency to roll that hand over to the left as the club comes into the ball at impact. 

Now that sounded too technical didn’t it. I know of an instruction manual that is simple and easy to use.

Instruction Manual

Many so-called golf instruction manuals try to blind you with science, and seem to take pride in making things
as complicated as possible. The instruction provided from an online manual found on how to grip a golf club is second to none and you will be able to start taking that knowledge onto the golf course the next time you play.  An improved golf grip with the use of this instruction manual could be just hours away.

Regardless of whether you utilize an interlocking or overlap grip, whether it is strong, neutral or weak, there are certain factors which are consistent with all good golf grips:
