First Tee Fundamentals: Hold

The hold, or grip, is often regarded as one of the most important parts of your setup. After all, your hands are what connect you to the club. Like a fingerprint, the way you place your hands is one of the most unique things about your golf game. Just about everyone has a different way of gripping it, and many different variations have been used with success (even cross-handed!)

There are some principles that you can apply when determining where, and in what way, you should place your hands. Here is a small sample:

Baseball grip: All ten fingers are wrapped around the club. This is good for juniors or those with small hands. It gives you the most feeling of control.

Interlocking: The pinky of the lowest hand on the club interlocks with the index finger of the highest hand on the club. A medium feeling of control designed for those with medium-sized hands.

Overlapping: The pinky on your bottom hand lays on top of the index and middle finger of the top hand. For those with large hands who can handle a "looser" feeling grip.

Try each one to determine what works best for you...

First Tee Core Values: Meeting & Greeting with A-L-R

A-L-R stands for Ask-Listen-Respond. It's the basic way to have a conversation. Participants learn A-L-R in order to meet new people, make new friends and acquaintances, and improve their overall interaction with others.

In addition to A-L-R, students learn the 5-Steps for Meeting Someone New. In order, these include:

  1. Face the person
  2. Smile and look them directly in the eye
  3. Give a firm handshake
  4. State your name clearly and loudly
  5. Ask a question
