Fixing Common Mistakes - Weak Grip

Traditional golf instruction teaches that you should be able to see at least 2 knuckles on your left hand when you look down at your grip. I on the other hand believe that if you can see only 2 knuckles you're restricting your swing. The fewer knuckles you see the weaker your grip and the more restricted your hand action will be. Now if you're a big strong person and you hit the ball great with a weak grip don't change it. But, if you're having problems with distance and direction check your grip. You should be able to see 3 knuckles on your left hand. Give it a try and you'll find you hit the ball with more authority since your hands will be livlier.

Golf Graphite Shafts
Graphite Shafts are considered the ultimate tee weapon to enable a good game of golf. However, there are points to be kept in mind while selecting the right graphite shafts, as they are all different. They are:
Torque: It is the measure of lateral twisting a graphite shaft experiences when placed under playing conditions. For the player, the lower the torque value, the better for the player. The graphite shaft torque value ranges anywhere from 1.8 to 7.2.
Weight: This refers to the shaft's weight in grams. For that power and swing, shafts should not be too light or too heavy. It should be custom made for the optimum weight.
Flex: It is the measurement of the amount a shaft will bend under stress. The more flexible the shaft the easier it would be for the player to swing the ball.
Kick Point: It is the point in the shaft where the majority of shaft flex is experienced. Kick point affects the flight of the ball more than anything else.
So, while buying graphite shafts, the above pointers are absolutely necessary to knock the ball best!

Thats weird advice for my swing because my left hand palm is within 30degrees of pointing straight up to the sky.My right is also pointing staight up to the sky.I am 57 years old. Hit the ball 260 without trying very hard and shot par on my home course last year for the first time ever.For someone who had a hard time breaking 90 with the (classic grip and swing)over the last 30 years. This little inovation of mine may warrant further study!
