Checking Your Golf Grip

I generally keep my grip as neutral as possible. Sometimes, when my attention wanders, my grip starts to shift towards the weak position. I am always looking for a way to quickly put my hands in the correct position. Now, I came across this a video that might help. I mentally went through the process described by Smash Factor and it looks like it will work. When you read this, I will be on the course giving this new process a try, so more information to follow on how it worked for my game.

Here is the video:

I have the perfect coin (ball marker) for the job and I am looking forward to setting my hands up according to the video. I think the left hand will move to a slightly stronger position, but again, more information to follow.

How do you ensure your hands are in the proper grip position for your swing?

I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!

  1. Jim, I am mostly neutral and like Kevin, hold the head up with the leading edge perpendicular to the ground when taking my grip. Occasionally, my left finger tip on the middle finger creeps away from contacting my palm, and I have to adjust. Loose shots are usually an indicator.

  2. My grip is somewhere in between strong and neutral. I can see 3 knuckles on the left hand. That’s the strong side. My right hand goes on a little closer to neutral though. When I pick the club up, I can feel the weight settle between the 1st three fingers of the right hand and the base of the palm of the left.

    And I have a routine to take my grip that starts with holding the club vertically with the head higher than the grip to add my left hand and with the club head on the ground toe up to add my left. That helps me get everything just right every time.

    I can lift the club then and feel the balance between the 1st three fingers of the right hand against the base of the left hands palm. The feel that tells me I have leverage available.

      Sounds like a perfect process to check your grip. I actually have to give this topic a bit more thought because I do not think about it at all when playing. Always something to check and be aware of when playing.

      Cheers Jim
