Coaching Article 3:
Compliment your new grip, with the right grip for you.

cord grip Over the last two weeks we have helped you technically to get the best out of your grip. This week we will bring this section to a close with equipment recommendations to compliment your grip.

The type of grip used will encourage a players grip to be too tight or too loose, so if you find you are a player that falls into the category of strong grip with too much pressure being applied this may be down to the fact you are using grips that are too small for you. The next time you are in the shop ask to get your grip size checked.  

The key role of the grip is comfort, providing the player a good platform to connect themselves and the club. Like the swing, each players idea of comfort is different so there are many stiles of grip to choose from.
The choices range from rubber or synthetic rubber through to cord weave and multi compound, which as it sounds is a combination of both rubber and cord weave.

Examples of a rubber, cord weave and multi compound grips.

For golfers playing in wet and humid weather, special care should be taken to select the right golf grip. Golf grips that include cord fabric are especially helpful in creating extra traction and support in wet conditions.

But, for many players, cord grips are too aggressive for their hands. If cord is not an option, then golfers should look for a grip with a heavy pattern and surface texture to provide the necessary traction b to keep their clubs from slipping (or flying) out of their hands.
Smooth grips and grips made of plastic or other polymers are not well suited for play in extremely wet conditions.

So with the thoughts you have gathered from articles 1, 2 and 3 look at your own grip and flight and form those relationships between where the ball starts and how it flies through the air.

If it works as explained in the article, great stuff! If it is not the case look to re adjust that grip to begin the improvements into your game.  As we mentioned at the start a swing fault may not be solely down to one principle, the clubface works in tandem to your swing path so that will be the next area we cover in the series to guide you through your swing maintenance.
