How to Nail your grip

How to Nail Your Grip
All good shots start with the right kind of hold

Stand up straight with your arms resting naturally at your sides. Don't try to do anything — just stand. Notice how your left hand hangs. Some players' hands hang with the left palm facing straight back (like mine, pictured here). Other players' hands hang with the left palm facing the target, with everyone else somewhere in between. The point is that everyone's hands hang differently, and the grip that will work best for you is the one that doesn't disturb your natural hand position.
Before taking your grip, let your left arm hang and then place your left hand on the handle without changing its position. Make sure you wrap your fingers around the handle, not your palm. Now you're in position to make your most natural athletic swing.
