Today’s short is the use of the left hand and how we grip it in the golf swing.

We always want to make sure the grip is in a neutral position but there are times we will have to change that out.

There’ll be times you can use the left hand to fight the hook;

  • You want to check that you haven’t gripped to strong.
  • Weaken the grip slightly and have the thumb on the centre of the grip.

If you want to fight the slice;

  • Have the left hand grip a little stronger.
  • Put it more in the fingers and wrap it round a little more

You’ll be able to get a lot more hinge, more strength and generate a little more power in the impact area.

So use the left hand, don’t just go for the neutral grip, you can make it a little stronger or weaker which will hopefully help with a few problems you may have there.
