Grip Pressure

As you read this golf tip, please keep in mind that it may not apply to your unique needs.  Always consult with your local PGA professional before attempting to apply any golf tip you have read from a newspaper, magazine, book, internet, etc.

Grip the club as hard as you can.  We will call this grip pressure a ten. Then grip it so light it falls out of your hands.  We will call this grip pressure a one.  Now grip the club with pressure in the three to five range.  This is the correct grip pressure for you to maintain for most golf shots.

It is important that after setting up with the correct grip pressure, you maintain the correct grip pressure throughout the swing. Going from a 3 grip pressure to a 7 starting the downswing will create problems.
