Do you tend to develop blisters on your hands or fingers when playing golf? If you do have blisters, it's not necessarily something you have to play through. It could be that your grip or grip pressure is incorrect.
Burt Remis has improved his game using the Peak Performance Golf Swing, but he says that he can get a pretty severe blister on his left hand because of the way he grips the club and the length of his fingers. He's looking for an explanation and a way to stop it from happening going forward.
Really enjoy your daily videos and in particular the videos I purchased. Has really transformed my game and made me realize how many errors I had from set-up to finish. One problem I have is that in using a conventional overlap grip I get a bad rubbing of the nail from my fourth finger of the right hand on an area just below and forward of the knuckle of my index finger of the left hand. If I don't use tape over this area of the left hand I can get a pretty severe blister. I have very long fingers and was measured for and use jumbo grips. Does this have to do with possible re-gripping the club on the forward swing? Look forward to your reply.

A lot of times golfers can develop blisters because of improper grip. But, for argument's sake, let's say that a golfer has perfect grip but still has blisters that pop up from time to time. This can simply be from overwork. If you're really dedicated to practicing and beating a bunch of balls on the range, it's entirely possible that you can develop blisters. If that's the case, you need to have the right kind of tape so that you can still play.
I always have a roll of rubberized tape in my bag that is waterproof and works for long periods of time. However, if you have a blister you should put a regular band-aid over it first, then wrap it with the tape. Otherwise it will never heal if you just wrap it in tape.
Even though I always carry tape in the event I need it, if your grip is solid and correct, you should be able to play a lot of golf without ever having a blister. Watch the video for a review of how to grip the club as well as the right amount of grip pressure that you should be playing with.
