A step-by-step guide to making a perfect golf grip

As your only point of contact with the club, a good grip is vital for good golf, and you should spend some time practicing the way in which you join your hands together. This step-by-step guide will help you. The position of your hands on the club determines how well you are able to hinge your wrists to make an effective swing - so it's vital to get it right. Your grip also affects the position of the clubface as it makes contact with the ball - most shots that curve to the right or left are the result of a bad grip.
