The grip is the most important fundamental in golf because it is the only part of the body touching the club. The way a person grips the club and the pressure in which they hold the club go a long way in determining the outcome of a shot. I have never given a first time lesson and not adjusted someone’s grip or posture. Placing the grip in the fingers and less in the palm is the first step to controlling the clubface. Controlling the clubface is the name of the game, and the face of the club mirrors a person’s hand placement around the grip.
