Golf tip of the week: Baseball grip may be right for you

The Little League World Series is over, but it made me think of the baseball grip.

The baseball-style grip may improve your golf game and add distance. Many golfers for some reason or another are hesitant to utilize the ten-finger grip, better known as the baseball grip.

I have found it to be very beneficial for a great percentage of golfers. Try it for eighteen holes and you may be pleasantly surprised. It is the one grip style that feels natural after a few swings.

Some of the benefits are:

• A better release at impact.

• Creates less stress on the wrists and works great for ladies with long finger nails.

What do you have to loose? Give it a try.

Don’t forget to enjoy this great game called golf.
