I’m not exaggerating when I say that almost 90% of the students I teach grip the club too hard. I usually get my student to shake hands with me using the grip pressure they are using to hold the golf club. Then when I ask them to loosen their grip until I feel the correct pressure and say, “That is how tight you should be holding the club,” the usual response I get is, “Wow, I’ve been gripping the club too hard for years!” PGA Professional Patrick Brosnihan explains that grip pressure is the key to both distance and accuracy!
Improving your grip pressure during your swing can also improve your distance and accuracy. Watch great instruction from PGA Professional Patrick Brosnihan, who explains how grip pressure affects your swing.
