A great reminder of how important my grip is to my swing results, Paul. Thanks for the details, I remember how much difference it made during my lessons with you. Amazing how I let specifics like that get overlooked, and at the same time I pretend I want the best outcome LOL! Great instruction, as usual thanks.

Easy to follow, just the right amount of detail…..Thx again for this!!!
Paul, just a quick question for u——-Do unearned a glove when you’re playing? Never see u with a glove on the playing tips….Ans if u don’t, could u please tell us why?? Thanks again 4 all the fantastic instruction!!!!!!
I never wear a glove. I stopped using one growing up when it would wear out all the time and didn’t want to keep paying for them, so I got used to not wearing one. Some pros don’t wear gloves, some pros do. Watch this tip:

Another great tip. I wish I had the grip shown to me when I was a kid from this perspective. It only makes sense to show the grip from the golfer’s angle, not the teacher’s. Another trick I like to use is to see the little “V” in your left hand pointing straight up to the chin. The “line” that forms the “V” points, as Paul teaches, to somewhere between the right ear and right shoulder. Maybe this is too subtle for some golfers, but it works when you pick your club straight UP to check alignment just before the takeaway. Thanks again, Paul. Best ever teacher!
For sure! I like to have all my students to quickly check the grip and the “V’s” before each swing or a couple times per practice session. It only takes a few moments.

And many thanks for your great tips!!
My question about the grip is this:
You say that the right hand must grip the club in the tip of the fingers.
I practiced that and instantly I got problems with the small muscles between my fingers in my right hand.
My own theory for the reason to this is, that i’ve got big hands, and long fingers and therefore it is an unnaturally position/feeling to grab the club in that way. When I went back to gripping the club at the point where my fingers meet the solid part of my hand, the pain went away instantly.
It seems on your videos that you have quite small hands/short fingers. Could it be an issue to address in your instruction vidoes going forward?
Furthermore…when I watch the pros on videos the most of them grip the club with their right hand not in the tip of their fingers, but more at the point where the fingers meets the hand.
Hope you understand my reflections

This would probably more of a problem since you have never gripped the golf club before in the fingers so your muscles might be exhausted from it. If you need to grip it slightly more into the palm then you can but you want to make sure that you have a neutral grip. Check out this tip:
