Golf Grip Pressure

We’ve all been told about proper grip pressure – Sayings such as “holding a bird” or “squeezing a tube of toothpaste” provide great visuals, but are very difficult to adapt to actually holding your golf club.

Using your Grip Solid® to feel proper pressure is simple and effective.

Lesson One – Gripping Your Club

  1. Wearing your Grip Solid®, stand and hold any golf club as you normally would when setting up for a full swing.
  2. Slowly tighten your left hand around the grip and pay attention to the FLEX•BAR in the palm of your hand. As your hand tightens you will feel the FLEX•BAR compress.
  3. Now slowly relax your left hand until you no longer feel the FLEX•BAR. At this point you are gripping the club with the right amount of pressure.
  4. Repeat this a number of times. Each time focus on the point at which you no longer feel the FLEX•BAR compress.

Gripping your club with proper pressure at address is important – Maintaining it throughout your swing is essential

Lesson Two – Swinging Your Club

  1. Wearing your Grip Solid®, stand and hold any golf club as you normally would when setting up for a full swing.
  2. Without a golf ball, take a full practice swing at ¼ the speed of your normal swing.
  3. Focus on the FLEX•BAR in the palm of your hand throughout your entire swing. Pay close attention at the:
    • Top of your backswing
    • Start of your downswing
    • Bottom of your swing
    • Follow through
  4. If you feel the FLEX•BAR compress in your palm you are changing your grip pressure and squeezing too tightly.
  5. Repeat your swing, easing up with your hands until you no longer feel the FLEX•BAR at any point during your swing.
  6. Continue taking full swings while gradually increasing your swing speed.
