Giving the club proper grip 

Chipping_Golf_GripThis is where the big deal about golf playing lies. Hold the club with the right hand directly in front of you and the club’s head pointing away from you at an angle of 45 degrees. Then grip the club with the left hand while still maintaining the previous position of the club. The right hand palm should be resting slightly above the left hand’s position of grip. If you hold the club properly, the first two knuckles of your left hand should be on sight and the thumb hidden on your right hand. This is just a standard grip of the club however there are other grips, namely the overlapping grip, the interlocking grip and the baseball golf grip. The commonly used out of these is the overlapping grip, where the little finger overlaps the left index finger.

Proper stance

A proper stance and grip are the ideal foundation for proper golf swing. Your front foot should be slightly ahead of the ball. The front and the back feet should be apart as the shoulder’s width. Then bend slightly with the knees while keeping your back straight. The kneecaps should be in position with the toes and the back at an angle of 45% with the ground. Then get the right posture and confidence. Do not tense.

Back swing

This is actually putting the club behind your back and not swinging the club in the air. It is like winding a spring. It gets your muscles’ tension to the right level In order to give a strong downswing. Do not do it in a hurry, your back swing being not too fast or too slow. You should be moving your upper body part while almost keeping the lower part within the same region or circumference.

The above tactics are a sample of what it actually takes when under training, as the details are well understood when done practically with proper assistance.
