The differences between your full-swing and putting grips

Published

on

As many of you already know, the full-swing grip should be in the fingers. This allows the wrists to articulate, and gives the hands and arms the ability to load and control the club.

It’s the polar opposite with the putting grip, which designed to eliminate wrist and hand movement. A millimeter here or there can mean the difference between winning and losing an event, so it is vital to immobilize the wrists and hands to a large degree, although there is still some feel and finesse involved.

In the video above, you will see how holding the club in the lifeline is a key to the putting grip. But a recently discovered and over-looked part of the putting grip is the position of the right hand. It should be drawn up and under much more than in the full-swing grip, which unifies the hands and allows them to function as a unit.

Watch the video to get an understanding of how truly different the putting grip is to the full-swing grip. There are other little tour nuggets in the clip, too. Check it out!

Clement: How grip affects pressure and vice versa

Published

on

This video is a big one! It addresses a huge common flaw that so many golfers have at address where they are not ready to be dynamic with their target but rather are perfectly positioned TO BE STILL WITH THE BALL. This opens up a can of worms for bad contact for thin and topped shots with lack of proper divots, early extension, bad compression, and bad trajectory that can’t perform in the wind. Massively important video coming up!
