Tip from Alex Sloan (USPGA, LM, GSED)

Alex Sloan giving us a great tipThe following is a special G.O.L.F. Tip by Alex Sloan (PGA, LM, GSED), the First Authorized Instructor of The Golfing Machine under Mr Homer Kelley.

I tell all my students that the right hand is the critical hand and by placing the little finger on first they destroy correct alignments and relationships with the left hand and clubface.

Here are a few key thoughts on the grip.

Homer Kelley (author of The Golfing Machine) was very emphatic that the #3 Pressure Point and Left Thumb be on the same alignment aft of the shaft.

For years it has been said that the left thumb be on top of the shaft. Homer said this did nothing but support the shaft at the top of the swing whereas if it were in alignment with #3 Pressure Point, it gave the strongest support for impact during release..

Another point to make, is that the heel pad of the Left Hand is above the shaft.

During one of my schools for Golf Pro's, I had one student who had his grip in his left hand along the life line. With the club in this position, it weakens the #3 Accunulator SIGNIFICANTLY.

Right Forearm on Plane with the clubshaftI demonstrated this in the class by zeroing out #3 Accumulator and by turning the left forearm to the right and then to the left.

As this is done, yuou will notiuce that the clubhead does not move. Now by dropping the hands so there is a required angle with the Level Left Wrist and then turn the Left Forearm to the right and then to the left, the club will swing through a significant arc.

I strongly recommend the VVA Hand position on the grip as Homer Kelley describes in the Golfing Machine Book. The #3 Pressure Point (First joint of the Right index finger) and the Left thumb are now positioned on the Aft Side of the Clubshaft in an On Plane Location for Impact support - (Chapter 10-2-B Page 139 - 7th Edition).

Most golfers make the mistake of placing the little finger of the right hand on first trying to get a secure feeling with it before placing the rest of the fingers of the right hand in position.

In my teaching, the little finger of the right hand is the last thing that should be placed on the club. This allows the golfers to correctly position the right hand and fingers where they should be. With VVA, it is critical that the right hand is vertical to the ground and in a vertical position same as the left hand.

I tell all my students that the right hand is the critical hand and by placing the little finger on first they destroy correct alignments and relationships with the left hand and clubface.
