For people with limited hand function or upper limb amputation, there is a vast array of gripping solutions that can be employed to enable or improve the player’s hold on the golf club.
In our experience, we have managed to provide a solution for any level of hand and wrist function, including Empower Golf’s founder James Gribble (C4-5 incomplete quadriplegic with minimal wrist and hand function) who has had to road test many solutions including those below.
The simplest gripping solution is to use a broad strip of reinforced elastic with sturdy velcro fastening to firmly strap a player’s hand to the club.
Although this solution provides a solid grip, depending on the player’s overall hand function, assistance from a caddy or helper could be required.
An alternative is a customised glove with a gripping tube.
The club is inserted into the tube.
The customised glove firmly holds the club in a consistent manner.
