Jessica Korda is one of the most popular players on the LPGA Tour and one of the longest hitters.  Her strong play has had her represent both the Czech Republic and the United States in international competitions.  In this article, Jessica explains the way she grips the club in the most natural way possible.  I think this will help you grip the club more naturally as well!

Use these tips from LPGA Pro Jessica Korda to rip your driver using your body’s natural positioning.

1. Stand behind the ball and grip the club with your left hand only. It’s simple: Just grab the handle without looking. This sets your left hand in its natural power position. Wrist angle varies from player to player—I like to keep my wrist slightly bent.

2. Depending on your anatomy, your left wrist will be either flat or flexed (like mine). What’s important is that you maintain your left wrist position as you swing. Changing it disrupts your hitting instinct. Take note of the flex and accept it.

3. Put your right hand on the club and take your address, maintaining the position of your left wrist. Take a last look at the target and start back. Have no fear—you’re one step away from catching the ball smack on the sweet spot!

4. As you swing to the top, hold the left wrist angle you established when you first gripped the club with your left hand. Don’t manipulate your left wrist or “flatten” it as many experts advise. Trust me: When it comes to big hits, your body knows best!
