It all starts with the grip!

Follow The Golfball Golf Tips - finding that winning grip and the cures for grip: "The correct grip is a key fundamental component of a golfer's
game and is required to have a consistently good straight game,
giving you the ability to shoot low scores with ease.
When the grip is faulty, poor shots often result along with an
inconsistent and unreliable game. Therefore it is essential for
your game that your grip is correct if you want to take your
golf to the next level.
Firstly place the club in your left (opposite for lefthanders)
hand, close your left hand around the grip as if you were
shaking somebody's hand. Your thumb should be pointing down the
grip, slightly to the right of centre.
Then bring in the right hand, firstly interlock the little
finger of your right hand with the forefinger of your left hand.
The underside of the grip should be placed on the joints of the
second and third fingers of the right hand. Your right thumb
should also be pointing down the grip, while your right palm
should be facing towards the target with your left hand facing
away from the target.
Two V's should be formed by the thumb and forefinger of each
hand, these should both point somewhere between your right
shoulder and eyes.
When holding the club, the club must be held firmly but with the
minimum of effort. Having the correct grip allows your hands to
work freely with the utmost control while a poor grip leads to a
lack of club head control.
Key Points: .Your arms and hands are relaxed. .Your left
forefinger is linked with the little finger of right hand, 2 or
3 knuckles should be visible. .The V's created by the forefinger
and thumb on each hand should point be to between your right
shoulder and eyes. These V's should be pretty much parallel toeach other. The grip should be comfortable yet held firmly with little effort, it is vital that the club head does not open or close on impact.
To test that you have a good grip, it should feel as though both your hands work together as if one. When you lift the club and move it, your hands should feel comfortable and secure.
Problems and cures for slightly faulty grips: You may find that you are slicing the ball; this could be due to a problem with your grip, (although it may be due to other reasons mentioned in my other article that aims to solve the slice) try rotating your grip slightly clockwise around the grip; also try holding the club more in the palm of your left hand.
If you have problems with hooking the ball, make a conscious effort to feel the ends of the fingers on your right hand pushing upwards through impact with the ball. This should help prevent you from closing the clubface on impact and so helps prevent you from hooking the ball.

This is great advice. You can't have a good swing if you don't have a good grip.

Hey, this was fun! I was at your blog and I was wondering if you could help spread the word on this for me?

I was reading today and surfing around looking for more information on news that I just received about
Green Day, Alicia Keys, Dave Matthews and Usher have signed on (with other recording artists) for a Hurricane Katrina relief concert. The concert will air live on MTV, VH1 and CMT; proceeds go to the Red Cross.

Anyway, if you're interested in mp3 files you might like this site for music, it's one of my favorites...
