    Great tips as always Troy! A proper grip is extremely important for golfers to better their game. As Ben Hogan said, ” an almost perfect grip is a slightly improper grip.” Also I see so many golfers with terrible posture. Even when I happen to see someone with good posture at adress, many times they will not maintain their posture and spine angle throughout the swing. Keep the great advice coming!

      Thanks Ari,

      If I had mastered the right posture / set-up when I first started playing it would have made the world of difference to my golf game. I’m now playing my best golf ever since I made a few adjustments about 2 months back.

      It really is that important!

      Thanks for stopping Ari and come back again soon.

      Cheers

    I am trying to break free of this baseball grip that i’ve been using since I started the game. I avg a score of 83-92 with this grip and this year I plan on break this high 70’s low 80’s, I am confident a proper grip will help me do so. The issue I find is it feels real loose, feels like I am not connected to the my grip, does this eventually go away as muscles get used to gripping it this way?

      Hi Trevor,

      Thanks for your comment.

      I can so relate to what you are saying as I went through exactly the same thing. When I first changed over from the baseball grip to an interlocking grip I felt like I was going to let go of the club every time I made a swing.

      Yes you’re right you will get used to it and the muscles will as well. The interlocking grip will enable your golf swing to travel on a better plane as well. If you change this as well as adopting the correct set-up as I wrote here http://www.hittingitsolid.com/how-to-play-better-golf/ you will see improvement. My advice is to persist with it no matter how uncomfortable it is to begin with. Your golf game will thank you later!

      All the best Trevor and come back again soon, I would love to hear from you.

      Cheers

        Thanks for the response. I’ve been through your site yesterday, I forget how I got here but I did, I like it and bookmarked it 🙂

        It’s winter here but I practice in my house daily and have been using the interlocking grip even though it feels weird for now, I am hoping that this weirdness goes away soon!

        I have a new set of irons and driver I am itching to hit when the snow melts but my big goal for the winter were to change the grip (and get new MP-59 irons) and I thought since I changed my irons that now would be a good time to change the grip so I get a feeling for the new irons with a new grip.

        I have some big changes going on, I hope they don’t negatively affect!

          Hey Trevor,

          Keep practising Trevor, you’ll get there.

          Mizuno make great irons. I had a set for over 7 years and loved them but have since changed to Ping.

          Stick with the change in grip, it’s a must for better golf.

          Look forward to hearing about your progress.

          Cheers

            I almost went with some Pings as well coming from TaylorMade MC’s but I decided the MP-59 fit me better than i20’s I had hit, the i20’s were amazing as well but something about the Mizuno irons just made me fall in love.

            I’ll keep you posted on progress 🙂

    Great tips. I agree with all you points and would echo your views on chipping. Most amateurs have a low greens in regulation stat, so being able to chip well will definitely lower you score. Thanks for the post.

    Cheers

      Thanks for your comment Jim,

      Yes the short game which includes chipping is so very important. We hit the majority of our shots from 100 yards in so it makes sense this is the area of our game we should be practising most.

      Cheers

    Thanks for the tricks. But I have the problem with the game that I can not judge the angle of the shots. Is that there is any tip for it so please tell me.

      Hello and thanks for your comment.

      When you say the angle of the shots what do you mean? Do you mean the height that you hit them or shaping them left or right towards the target?

      Cheers
