Speaker 1: Everybody knows that good golf begins with a good grip.
To grip the club correctly, it's really important that you understand the roles that the left hand and the right hand play in the grip, because they're a little bit different.
Let's start with the left hand grip.
What you want to do is make sure that the club is held diagonally across the top joints of your fingers.
When you do that, you can wrap this muscular pad of your left hand around the top of the grip, and the thumb pinches against the hand this way, forming a line between your thumb and index finger that should point approximately at your rear shoulder, your trail shoulder.
When you do that, your hand's in a very neutral position and you can easily release the club through the ball with a lot of power.
Now you want to couple that with the proper right hand grip.
To do that, the right hand's a little more in the fingers.
You want to feel like these two knuckles of your right hand are under the spine of the club.
You take your hand and wrap it around your left thumb in a way where the line that's formed by your thumb and your index finger is again pointing pretty much at your trail shoulder.
When you do that, your hands are in a really neutral position.
It feels comfortable after a while and you can crack the whip as hard as you like through the ball, producing really good golf shots.
