Will A Stronger Grip Position Encourage A Better Release Of The Club? (Video)

Well the question is – is will a stronger grip actually encourage a better hand release through the ball? Well yes and I will explain why and I will explain also where you have got to kind of draw the line with this. A stronger grip, is a grip that is actually for the right handed golfer a left hander is further over the top and the grip just more to the right. As you look at this now you will see that the V is now going between my chin and my right shoulder. And the more that the V is going towards the right shoulder the stronger you hand position. So you can check this out when you are being filmed or you are just looking the reflection of a mirror or a glass window.

So that’s a stronger grip, a normal V would go right in the middle of this area here, so if I put that left hand slightly further this one is now a stronger grip that pushes my right hand a little bit more underneath and what a stronger grip encourages is more hand action. So with more hand action more release. And release is basically where the club is released for the hitting here, so if I demonstrate if I take that club back and I get it to this area here the release is where the hands rotate back over. In other words it’s the mirror image of what happened in the back swing and the back swing you went back and got the club into this position as we bring the club back down if we didn’t release the club the club would go through like this. So a release is when we get the club here and then it’s the mirror image going through so a stronger grip encourages this release, the danger is making this hands a little bit too strong because if we do go too strong so now you can see my grip is hopefully stronger than what it was before, this will encourage the hands to rotate too quickly and off course is the danger is then, is that you’re going to get the club coming in but the club now releases far too quickly, the club face encloses and it was returning to the left and you get a hook, so it’s a very, very fine line between getting a stronger grip which I would encourage you to look into the mirror and think right, there is the orthodox grip there, there is a slightly stronger grip that’s good but once we get over to this position where that V is going towards a shoulder you are now on very, very shaky ground between what is meant to be a stronger grip to get released but now we are on the bed line now or the fence of actually getting this big hook. And if you get that big hook you know what they say – what causes it is a bit right to left shape and it normally gets its ball spinning into the rough so you want to get the hands stronger hopefully you’ve got the information there and it's not too complicated, but be careful that you just don’t go a little bit too far because then, we will be looking for that ball in the thick rough.
