Golf Grip's Effect on Swing Plane
Having a proper grip is crucial for club face control and lag in the golf swing. In this video I talk about the proper grip's effect on club position and plane. If you want to know more about the grip in depth, pick up a copy of RST Level 1 Certification Manual.
- Bow and rotate the left wrist as you start the downswing. For the most part, this will happen naturally and that's a good thing as this gradual rotation encourages a full release.
- A slightly stronger grip will leave you with a clubface that is slightly shut at the top. This is ok, having this slightly shut club face at the top makes it significantly easier for the average golfer to square the club face at impact.
- Having a slightly stronger grip can and will steepen the swing plane slightly. Having a swing plane that is very slightly steeper than, say, a parallel swing plane is perfectly ok and even preferential.
