Golf Tip – Light Grip

October 7, 2015 Posted by Matt

light gripHere is a little trick for better putts.  When you hold your putter, make sure you use a light grip, so the putter head will release through the ball at impact.  Good putters use their shoulders in a rocking motion to propel the stroke instead of using their hands.  Move the thumb of your bottom hand away from the middle of the grip, sot that it sits just on one side or the other of the handle.  This will help keep your hands from being too active and force you to use your shoulders in a rocking motion to move your arms and hands during the stroke.  Try to keep your hands “quiet” but not stiff as you swing the putter.
