One of the simplest and most effective ways to control your ball-flight is to adjust how you hold the club in your hands. Its well known that strong grip will help influence a shot to the left and a weak grip will influence the ball to the right (I will use a right handed golfer for the entirety of this article). What’s not well known is how to properly achieve these two grips.
Too often students tell me that they create a strong grip by putting the club more in the fingers of the left hand and just move their right hand a little more under the shaft. For a weak grip, they put the club more towards the palm of the left hand and move their hand hand more on top of the shaft. Both of these descriptions are wrong and result in changing how you hold the club in your hands.
There is a simpler, more consistent way to achieve these two grips. For a stronger grip, start with the clubface aimed left of your intended target, take your normal grip, and then rotate the clubface back towards the target using just your hands and forearms. It's important to note that once you complete your grip, that you do not adjust your hands on the club. That would be defeating the purpose of strengthening your grip. For a weaker grip, simply start with the clubface aimed right of your intended target and continue with the same process. All this is assuming that your grip is sound in the first place, so I highly recommend working with a qualified instructor who will know exactly how to help you with your grip.
So as you play a round, use these two grips to help work the ball towards your target and away from the trouble. Its a simple and effective way to lower your scores!
