Gripping the club properly

If you go for a lesson with a qualified golf professional it is very likely that the first or at least one of the first things he or she will look at is your grip. For most this will lead to suggested changes to ensure you have a proper grip and, if you are like most golfers, making changes to your grip will be incredibly difficult and, initially at least, leave you feeling like you are holding the wrong end of the club so much is the discomfort and awkwardness of change. Or maybe it's just not what we want to hear - something so simple and we want more from a lesson.

The truth though is that a proper grip is vitally important and there is really no excuse for not at least attempting to get it right. Check out the resources below to see how you can get your grip sorted.
