How To Grip the Golf Club
There are two main reasons the grip is so important and 3 main goals of the golf grip.
The first reason the grip is so important is that it’s our body’s only connection to the golf-club. No other part of our body touches the club. Second, the grip is the only part of the golf-swing that can not be compensated for or corrected throughout the swing. If a golfer sets up with too much bend in the knees or the waist, s/he can compensate or correct this in the back-swing by straightening up a bit (not that we want to have to plan for such compensation). This is different from a poor grip. The golfer cannot reasonably re-grip into a correct grip in the back-swing, much less the down-swing.
