The Golf Grip: How to Take Hold of the Club

Connect the Dots
Grip the golf club in the fingers

Take hold of the golf grip in the fingers, not the palm, of your top hand.

Hold the club about three feet in the air, in front of your body. With the clubface square, place the club at an angle through the fingers, following the line of the dots pictured on Page 2. The club should touch the base of the little finger and rest just above the first joint of the index finger (along the line of the dots).
