Forgotten Fundamentals and Why Your Grip Is Key To A Repeating Golf Swing - Part 2
One of the most important keys to a repeating golf swing that hits one long, straight shot after another is to have the ability to relax your hands, arms, and shoulders and swing the club back and through impact without tension.
With a good grip, this relaxed motion will return the club squarely to the golf ball time after time.... BUT if your grip is bad, it makes it extremely difficult, if not impossible, to deliver the club squarely to the golf ball without consciously or unconsciously some making some sort of in-swing correction.
If you've purchased my "How To Break 90 In 3 Easy Lessons" instruction system, you have found that my method teaches you to swing freely through the ball with an uncluttered mind promoting longer, straighter, and more consistent shots. In-swing corrections are an evil you can do without and in my instruction system I teach you how to be rid of these in-swing corrections forever. I stress fundamentals and show you how you can quickly and easily develop good fundamentals that will serve you well as you improve your golf game. I also show you how you can develop your feel for your swing so you can execute it over and over with a completely uncluttered mind, hitting longer, more accurate shots round after round but that's another article for another day.
One of these fundamentals that I stress heavily within my system is a proper grip.
With the proper grip, a NEUTRAL grip, the club will return squarely to the ball time after time producing longer, straighter, and more consistent shots. It is vital to your success in golf that you develop and use a neutral grip as opposed to a "strong" grip or "weak" grip.
Let's talk for a minute about the difference between neutral, strong, and weak grips so you can properly identify where you currently are.
A "strong" grip is one that has the back of the left hand and/or the palm of the right hand pointing to the right of your intended target line. A "weak" grip has the back of the left hand and/or the palm of the right hand pointing left of the intended target line. Easier to visualize for most players is when you take your grip and address the ball look down on your grip. If you can see more than 1 1/2 knuckles on your left hand, it is in a strong position. On the other hand, if you see no knuckles on your left hand, it is in a weak position.
There are numerous variations of weak and strong grips. Some players use a weak right hand and a strong left or vice versa. Some of these grips have worked very well for some players over the years but if you are just beginning to learn the game or you're struggling with your game, the grip is the place to start and NOW is the time to develop YOUR "NEUTRAL" grip.
In "How To Break 90 in 3 Easy Lessons," I show you step by step exactly how to develop your neutral grip. I also show you how to find your best posture and how to find perfect alignment and that's just lesson #1. Then I show you how to apply these solid fundamentals to your full-swing, chipping, pitching, and putting as well as showing you hoe to hit scoring shots like the lob and the flop.
My system is designed to maximize performance and consistency with minimal practice time.
If you practice enough and have enough GOD given talent, you can make virtually any grip work but that's not what you're here for.
You're looking for the "silver bullet" .....right?
You're looking for longer, more accurate shots and lower scores and to achieve this goal without hours and hours of practice time, your fundamentals must be sound which is why you must start with the corner stones of a repeating swing...strong fundamentals.
