The golf grip is the one place where the player connects with the club. This is where it all starts in the golf swing. If the grip is bad, all sorts of corrections in other parts of the golf swing and setup are required to compensate. Starting with a proper grip makes the rest of the swing fall into place, just ask Ben Hogan.
Golf-Grip – Golf Training Aid
Golf-Grip is a very cool golf training aid which goes on the player’s own clubs and helps him/her establish a proper grip.
My grip is a bit skewed, with one hand strong and the other weak. That must be what produces my “granny over-the-top dual chicken wing” swing. After a few practice sessions with the Golf-Grip I’m trying to get the feel of where my hands should be and what relationship they have to each other. It is hard as I’ve learned some bad habits.
Setting up Golf-Grip is easy. Slide it on any golf grip on any club in the bag except the putter, line up the white alignment line and put your hands on it.
If you want to strengthen your grip to promote draws or hooks, rotate the Golf-Grip clockwise on the grip. If you want to weaken the grip to produce fades or slices, rotate it counter-clockwise.
At around $20, Golf-Grip could really help players get their connection with the club setup properly. More experienced players could rotate the grip to get the feel of draw and fade grip setups.
