Target Hand Low

You have heard of ‘Left Hand Low’ and know it is a ‘Grip Description’ for primarily ‘The Flat Stick or Putter’ and occasionally for the ‘Chipping Tools’ if you so desire. The most common Grip is Brace Hand Low’. With this procedure, the Brace Hand is about four inches lower than the Target Hand. The Brace Shoulder is also lower than the Target Shoulder Socket by the same margin. A level ‘Shoulder Axis’ invites a more neutral and predictable ‘Lever Triangle’.  

Your ‘555 Team’ does not use the term ‘Left or Right’ so as to avoid confusing ‘Righty or Lefty’ students. When the teacher is ‘Body On Perspective’ your right hand is on my left side. The student’s Left Hand is therefore most appropriately referred to as the Target Hand.

Your ‘555 Team’ logically explains and starts building ‘Putting Skills’ with the ‘Ten Finger Target Hand Low Grip’ … all fingers on the golf club handle. Why? The Brace Lever provides the ‘Bend & Straighten Hitting Action’. (see ‘3 Lever Single Action’)(see ‘Variable Lever Length’) The Target Lever provides the Swinging Activities. This includes 1) Clubface Aim and Control, (We aim and control the Clubface with the carpel bones on the back of the Target Hand.) 2) Bottom Of Swing Arc (BOSA – Shoulder Socket to Sole of Clubhead) and 3) The #4 Pressure Point. (Target Pec pressing against the Target Biceps)

The ‘Target Hand Low’ enables that lever to control the BOSA Swinging Motion. It is better suited to do so than the ‘Brace Lever’.

Your ‘555 Team’ thinks it is prudent and expeditious to know both of these ‘Putting Grip Methods’. If one is not working up to expectations, freshen your mind by changing methods! Target Hand Low Putters may need to be slightly shorter (1 to 2 inches) due to mechanics. Oversize Fat Grips are better than Slender Grips due to ‘Quieter Triangles’.  

Your playing partners or competitors will notice and likely be curious and distracted. This might be known as ‘Gamesmanship’ or ‘Tools Of The Trade’? Remember to use your ‘Intermediate Target’, ‘Ocular Acuity’ and to ‘Breathe Out When Your Hands Are In Motion’! Small things matter in Golf!
