Change Your Grip First before Changing Your Swing
Among all the things I tried to improve my game, the grip was the most important aspect of all.
When I wasn't hitting the ball well or felt like I was losing distance, my grip was usually the cause.
Most golfers try to change their swing but often fail to improve. They read magazines about golf swing and find lots of tips.
It might work for a while. But it doesn't last for a long time.
That is because they don't have the correct grip for them. The definition of a correct grip changes from person to person. So the correct grip for Tiger Woods might not work for you.
Unless you have the grip that suits you, you won't improve your swing no matter what kind of tips you get.
I get excited when I find problems in my grip because by correcting it, I will improve my swing for sure.
Before trying to fix your swing positions, swing plane or swing path, look for errors in your grip first. Often times correcting your grip is all it takes to hit a good shot.
