Golfers know how important it is to have good grip on the course. It gives you control of the ball and helps you maintain swing action. But, when it comes to chipping this element is significant since it is suggested you work on improving this skill. With chipping, where you place your hands on the club is important. If your hands are not in good position your shot can be thrown off and experience a poor result. In the end you need to establish solid contact with the ball from the point of address. Here are some tips to help you develop correct club grip when chipping.
How do you grip your hands when you hold your club? How does your grip vary as you complete your shot? You can take a few practice shots or practice swings and as you do pay attention to your grip. Look how your hands are in position. If you haven’t been getting the results you want or you feel your grip is a little uncomfortable make changes. If you have a grip you are used to using when taking shots consider changing it up a bit or change your grip during practice shots.
As you grip your club, consider gripping upward. You may need to consider changing the position of where your hands hold or rest on the club as you grip it. An upward grip can help you establish better control as you swing your club. An upward grip can also help you maintain control throughout your swing motion while establishing control of wrist movement. You can take a few practice swings with and without an upward grip to get an idea how each grip varies.
As you swing your club, keep in mind hand positioning and how you hold your club. You should have a good grip with just enough pressure to keep your club in hand through the stroke. If you have too much pressure to your grip this could be due to tension. Hands in a forward position help you maintain positioning of your club head. This also helps ensure you make contact with the ball and encourage good follow through after contact is made.
