Flexibility and Your Golf Grip

On September 14, 2009 by Full Motion Physical Therapy

Regardless of what grip a golfer prefers; interlocking, overlapping or 10 fingered, good wrist flexibility during the swing requires both hands be in parallel alignment.   Natural wrist motion occurs when the palms are facing one another along the target line.  The most common golf-related injury is tendinitis.  To avoid this, stretching the wrist/forearm before every round of practice of play is necessary.  Have a golf teaching professional assess your grip because it is the sole connection to your club.  Wrist action is a critical part of the game.
