Today's question has to do with grip. More specifically, Keith wanted to know if the club should be held in the fingers or the palm. This is actually one of the more easier questions to answer, as pretty much all golf instructors teach the same thing.
Regardless, it's still important to understand how to properly grip the club because it's the only thing connecting you to it. I'll explain different aspects such as grip pressure, position, and the role of each finger.
The video on grip…do you have the club across the fingers or across the palm? As I have been told both ways are okay, which way do you think is best?
The vast majority of golf instructors (including myself) advocate that the club should be gripped in your fingers. But, it's all about having equal grip pressure as well. Once you get both hands on the club and you squeeze the club equally with both, you'll have more control because they're working together.
Everything has to be equal in both hands. If you do that, you'll be able to make controlled swings which will allow you to be a much more consistent golfer.
Keep it vertical!
