MENTAL TIPS FROM THE TOP

Grip Pressure

Only hold onto the club as firmly as you need to so that it does not slip out your hands at any point in the swing, however hold it light enough to prevent tension in your arms & torso. There are 3 pressure points in the hands that allow the club to be positioned correctly, which helps the joints in the wrist and arms to work efficiently during the swing.

  • 1st Pressure Point is the last 3 fingers of the left hand. This pressure point helps sense the cocking and uncocking of the wrists.
  • 2nd Pressure Point is slight pressure from your right palm (the life line) over the left thumb.
  • 3rd Pressure Point is the first knuckle of your right index finger (trigger finger). The inside of the knuckle on your right index finger presses into the rear of the grip. This pressure point is critical to the control of the club as it monitors the position and the speed of the club head.
