David Homer says:

I had a strong grip and I had a tendency to over hook the ball or leave the club face wide open for a slice on driver or Irons I switched to a weak grip and now hitting straight and further on a consistent bases. I can also draw the ball with the same grip when I want but do not have the accuracy yet.

Pablo Ramírez says:

Then why golf coaches teach kids, as I was, to have a weak grip? I mean, I've always had a strong grip, since I was 6 years old, and they always tried to take away my natural swing and my strong grip. I could never coordinate twisting my wrists along with the downswing with a weak grip. But know that I have no coach My game has improved so much and so my distance, I used to hit a drive 260 with a weak grip and sliced it a lot, now I hit it 305 yds with a slight fade. Sometimes coaches missread the body motion and basically mess swings up

appreciate your videos. always great tips.

Lance and Delrae Benson says:

Thank you Adam! Quick question please, speaking of grips. Due to a skin issue I stopped wearing a glove on my left hand for over a year. I’m comfortable not using one. Now that the issue is a mute point, do you think a person is missing out of any benefits, by not using a golf glove? Thank you in advance.

marty maness says:

I kinda like a weak grip. Keeps me from missing left.

Warque Daddy says:

wouldn't a strong grip requires the ball position to be more towards your right leg? or else the club face will be much closed during contact..??

Todd Onderdonk says:

Adam – I appreciate your videos very much. Question on the right hand grip — should the club grip be aligned 1) at the point where the two middle fingers meet the hand or 2) closer to the first joint of middle fingers. I have an old book by Joe Norwood called Golf-O-Metrics that went into a lot of detail on grip and setting right wrist down, which seemed to have my right above the club too much. Appreciate any comment you might have. Thanks!

Dan Hunt says:

How to make an awful golf video? Step 1: Pose an interesting comparison between 2 techniques and suggest that you have an answer. Step 2: Go through a video where you introduce a third option. Step 3: End by saying, just do whatever works…. Scratch this channel off my list

William Wilson says:

Yet another excellent piece, Sir! Being naturally left-handed but swinging right-handed – the alleged perfect recipe – I do have a tendency to allow the left hand to rotate left and become weak. Although 'comfy' this is no good and I understand why top players are so meticulous in their fundamentals…

Jim Gaul says:

This is a great video. To see what your natural physiology is, stand up straight and let your arms naturally hang. The more you see the backs of your hands the stronger the grip you should have.

Shane Jones says:

Hogan weakened his grip after his car accident. Yes he hit thousands of balls to perfect it, but weak isn't dead. Hogan won 6 majors with a weak grip.

Michael Scales says:

John Daly in his book recommends a strong grip.Jack Nicklaus says in his books,a strong grip is a weak grip.Fred Couples,Paul Azinger ,David Duval,all use strong grips,whereas Ian Poulter,Monty and Greg Norman are neutral.Yet they've all earned huge amounts of money from golf, playing golf as they see fit.Personally I think you should go over your local driving range and hit a bucket of balls and see what works best.I don't think you can go far wrong with a neutral grip where the left thumb is just right of centre.(if you are right handed) Why ? Because it is easier to repeat and keep a check of.

Steve Murphy says:

Thanks for the awesome content Adam.
I’m a slicer. A Bad Slicer! I’m having a lot of trouble finding the happy medium. If I grip too strong it goes left, too weak and I’m on the next fairway. Occasionally I’ll land it in the middle but can’t pinpoint what I’m doing right when I hit a decent drive. Love this game!

John Pietrolaj says:

Great video… I always used a strong grip because I was told that is the best grip to have. I was experimenting with a more neutral grip just today and I was hitting the ball straighter and more solid throughout the bag. I am going to dial in the more neutral grip.

Louis Lucatelli says:

What's with all these commercials

ran doshus says:

All I know is if you don't rotate through you're gonna dig…

Peter says:

Perhaps the strongest grip that I have seen at address on TV is the grip of Fred Couples.

Josh Lacey says:

Hi Adam, I have a strong grip on my driver, should I have a strong grip on my irons too? Thanks!

dean robinson says:

My grip is so strong the clubface points behind me at the top! I'm perfectly happy with it.

David Nolan says:

Love your lessons!

coegj says:

Adam I'm a natural Lefty that plays golf Right handed, with a weak left hand grip I've always been able to hit a fade without much trouble of losing it way right. My natural strength in my left fingers, hand, wrist, forearms, shoulder seems to keep the face square to target and with path to the left, the fade just keeps happening. I know some right hand players that have tried my weak left hand grip, and that always turns out a disaster for them. They always go back to a stronger left hand grip, and forget what I do.

Dennis T says:

How about the right hand grip for a righty, is the crease between the thumb and finger supposed to be pointing towards your right shoulder, can you have a weak or strong grip with the right hand or should it be a neutral grip.
Thanks ????

MidLifeBiker says:

Im a natural right hander that plays left handed (one hand right, both left). I was a terrible slicer with the driver until strengthening my grip. I would say that my grip is neutral with the irons. Im still experimenting with the woods, depending on whether hitting from a tee or not. Is this normal or should I be adopting one grip for all?

Ryan Fagan says:

The strong(er) grip is key guys. You will eventually eliminate slice and develop a much more playable draw with the right ball position. What you then need to work on is takeaway. Specifically club face angle as it hits waste high and is ready to go up and hinge. Tendency is to keep it shut down causing problems. My key swing thought is too make sure my club face gets open enough on the way up. It makes a world of difference on the way back through. Your mileage may very but that was the starting point for me of beginning to really hit some great shots.
