Four steps to a perfect grip

Have trouble with your grip? Follow these four simple steps to get the perfect grip.

#1: Pre-Kink The Wrist

Place your gloved hand to the side of the grip, the badge looking slightly right of target (right-handers). Push your knuckles towards your target to create a noticeable kink in the wrist. This helps you run the club through the correct part of the hand.

#2: Heelpad To Index Crease 

That kink of the wrist creates a neat handle-sized zone between the heel pad and the little finger. Slot the grip into that zone, under the heel, and angle the handle so it runs against the first joint of the index finger. Fold the fingers around the grip.

#3: Form A Question Mark

Now place your lower hand to the side of the grip. Make sure the palm of the hand is looking at your target and create a question mark-like shape with the index finger; doing so arranges the fingers ideally for how they need to go on the club.

#4: Unite The Hands

Keep that 'question mark' intact as you introduce your hand to the club. Feel the gloved thumb fit in to the fleshy part of your trail palm, and let your trail hand's little fingers it in the groove between gloved index and middle fingers. Keep your grip pressure light-no more than a 4/10.
