By: art gotc

Proper golf grip is so important because the grip is your only connection with your golf club. You may wonder how to grip a golf club properly. I will try to explain few basic things.

Place your hands properly on the golf club. Well placed hands helps you better control the position of the club's face. During swing your body turns, since your body is rotating your golf club must rotate at the same time to make perfect swing. Golf club should be like a part of your body.

There are three basic grip types : interlocking, overlapping and baseball grips. Overlapping grip setup is simple , little finger of one hand is placed over the index finger of other hand. Interlocking setup is similar just two fingers will be iterlocked not overlapped. Baseball grip - two fingers do not overlap or interlock they just meet together. If you are wondering which grip type is the best I only could say that they are all good. Just experiment with all three types and then choose the one which is most comfortable to you.

Grip pressure is important too. If your grip is too tense you will lose some yards of the tee. Proper golf grip should be in the middle of really intense grip and extremely loose grip. If you done everything correctly you should have a very accurate shot.

Only by practicing you could know how to grip a golf club properly. You should try all three types of golf grip and practice. Practising is the key to success.
