06 Mar Grip for Junior Golfers

When building a grip for Junior Golfers always focus on making it effective and functioning. I always build four grip elements with every student.

1. The club should be predominantly in the fingers of both hands and not in the palms of the hands.
2. The hands should be linked together or at least always touching each other.
3. The heel pad of the left hand should be on top of the grip.
4. Both hands should be free of tension. Very Important!!!

Club should be placed in the fingers, just touching the joint of the Left Hand.

Left hand should be closed over the club, keeping the club predominantly in the fingers and placing the heel pad of the hand on top.

Club should be placed in the fingers of the Right Hand just touching the joint between fingers and palm.

Hands should be linked together, or at least always touching. I like interlocking with young students because in my experience it helps them to link their hands more effectively. Grip pressure should be light.

Remember that the goal is to give the student an effective and functioning grip that will allow their skills to develop.
