Tip of the Week: Adjust your grip to play fade

RSS

Many professional golfers play a fade (a shot that curves from left to right for the right-handed player) as their go-to shot because it's a ball flight that is easy to control.

In fact, there's an old saying in golf that you can talk to your ball all you want, but a hook just won't listen.



Colin Montgomerie has won more than 40 professional events around the world and was a Ryder Cup stalwart for years, and he attained that success by playing a fade almost exclusively from tee to green.

In this video, Monty is going to show you how a simple grip adjustment can help you work the ball from left to right, which will lead to greater control on your full shots.
