How important is it to hold the golf club with the correct grip?
Even if you hold the club poorly, how much harm can it do to your game and does a bad grip act as a catalyst for poor shots?
To answer the first question, the grip is incredibly important.
It is your only physical contact with the golf club therefore having an orthodox grip can’t be undermined.
On the second question, if your grip is slightly unorthodox it can be responsible for errant shots.
