Eric Alpenfels knows golf.
As the Director of Golf Instruction here at Pinehurst, he shares his knowledge with golfers of all skill levels looking to improve their game.
Alpenfels, who has been recognized by Golf Magazine as one of the “Top 100 Teachers in America,” recently shared with the publication his advice about how to improve golf grip.
Alpenfels writes: “In a recent poll of Top 100 Teachers, 81 percent acknowledged that the grip is one of the first things they work on with new students. I’m not suprised. Most golfers see the grip as simple — grab the handle and squeeze. But there’s a lot more to it, and making even the slightest error can have serious ramifications in your swing. (By the way, the 19 percent who said their students’ grips don’t need work admitted to coaching only pro players. See a pattern?)
“If you’re concerned about your grip, then follow these simple steps. This is the method we teach at the Pinehurst Golf Academy, and it’s sequenced to set your hands in the correct positions and avoid the most common grip errors. It’s a 5-second procedure that will give you the power and control you’ve been missing.”
Here’s a look at the piece titled “New Way to Take Your Golf Grip.”
