Perfect Grip Every Time With The Two Dot Drill (Video)

Most golfers know that a good key fundamental to proper technique starts with a decent grip. And I think when I ask most players you know how is your grip, how should you grip it? They can probably get their hands into the right position. The problem is do they keep their hands in that position throughout the whole practice session? Because millimeter by millimeter the hands might move into a different position and during the course of a practice session of 50 or 100 balls, that can cause, big problems from their setup into their swing. So here is a great little technique just to make sure you've always got your left hand in the right place. All I've done is taken a grip and I have actually – sorry taken my glove and I've drawn a couple of circles on the back of my first two knuckles here and here.

Now by having those two dots drawn on the glove as I setup to the ball, I want to make sure I can see them. We often talk about how a two knuckle grip is important to us. So as I go ahead and take my address position there I can see the two dots on the outside of my knuckles. If my grip was too weak I would have it turned here and now I can only see one dot. If it was too far around here I can see two dots and actually I can see my third knuckle as well which I don't want to be able to see. And if you have a habit of having too strong a grip you might actually go ahead and draw around the third circle and then make sure you can't see it. And if the third circle starts to be appearing then you know your grip is becoming too strong. Most golfers have a little tendency to be a bit weak in their left turn so two dots is enough for most people and make sure you can always see the two dots then go ahead make your grip with your right hand, last little check still see my two dots, I know my grip is good and then we can go ahead and hit a nice shot again. So it's just double checking, can I see my two dots before I start my swing it's a great little checkpoint to make sure that you're not making too weak a grip in your left hand and make sure you keep your grip nice and consistent.
