A Good Grip
One of the prettiest sights in golf is a good grip. And, unfortunately, it’s a rare occurrence.
If you ever give golf lessons to beginners, you’ll see one of two swings. The first one is the caveman swing.The club is gripped in the palms, squeezed in a death grip, then lifted straight up in the air and then pounded down on the ball as if it’s a deadly snake.
It’s a Golf “Swing”
Some players golf games get better as they older … some get worse. I was one of those “worse” guys.
I started noticing trouble in my 50s … then around 60, it was pretty obvious that things had changed. Not only had I lost distance and swing speed … but I was hitting fat shots and other goofy stuff. And not only were my shots flying shorter, but they were getting lower … and lower.
