FrontPageGolf Thumb Caddy Review
There’s an old golf adage that says a good swing starts
Each year prior to start
of the PGA Tour season the Golden Bear would visit
Jack Grout, his mentor and coach since he was a boy,
and they would go back to basics in order to prepare for
the new year. The first basic Nicklaus and Grout
checked? His grip.
If Nicklaus thought the grip was that important then the
average weekend warrior should certainly pay attention.
Want more proof? In perhaps the most iconic golf
instruction book ever, Ben Hogan’s “Five Lessons The
Modern Fundamentals of Golf,” the Hawk devotes 19
pages to the grip. Any teaching professional will tell you
what Hogan said in that 1957 opus is just as true today.
There must be several hundreds golf teaching aids on the
market causing confusion, misunderstandings and
disbelief (think of almost any Infomercial you’ve seen),
however that does not preclude a teaching aid that is not
only simple in concept but easy and effective to use.
Enter the Thumb Caddy.
More practical than the old “reminder-grip” since you can
hit balls with it and regardless of the style grip used, be it
the Vardon or interlocking or ten fingers, the Thumb
Caddie positions the left thumb (for a right handed player)
properly on the top of the shaft.
To use it just spread it apart, slide it on to the shaft over
the lower part of the grip aligning the arrow on the Thumb
Caddy and it’s in place. Easy to install or remove and use.
It may not make you the next Hogan or Nicklaus but it will
show you how to correctly place you hands which is the
start of a good swing.
