I use a Ten Finger. I wouldn't call it a baseball grip as both V's point at my right ear. Started with a ten finger. Was told that wasn't corrent. Did the overlap for about a year, didn't progress well at all. Went back to ten finger and right now my handicap is 8. I would suggest trying Jim Furyks double overlap for pitch shots. I use this for high pitch shots.
Thanks man! Any golf lately? Played a new course yesterday. 46 front, 39 back. Can't wait to play it again.
Played my first round yesterday. I've played a few practice rounds but wasn't counting them towards my handicap. Shoot a 77. 40 on the front, 37 on the back. Great day, 72 degrees and sunny.
Peela, I've been thinking about that. Playing just for the score is wearing off for sure. I need something on the line to keep me going through 18.
Both good points. With the higher bounce the front edge of the wedge sits off the ground higher. Personally, my eye doesn't like that. Looks like I would catch it thin, resulting in fat shots. Not the clubs fault, all on me. My 56.12 sits nice to my eye, so the thought of hitting it thin doesn't enter my mind. Quiet the mental game we play.
For my swing, I prefer less bounce from the fairway. I bought a 56.14 and countiously hit fat shots. With a 56.12 and 60.8 , I make solid contact from tight lies.
Congrats Klutten!!
Dan, I found a set mp-62s for around $200. I absolutely love them. They are extremely close to the 64s.
High 70's to 85 is currently my zone. I'm hoping to shoot a 75 by the end of the year. Knowing my numbers on all shots has made a huge difference. I've practiced so much that I have every yardage in my game from 4 steps to 270 yards. I've created a chip shot that is the same motion with my 60, 56, 52, PW, 9i, and I know exactly how far each will go. I have 3 shots with all my scoring irons, full, arm level to the ground, and choke up level to the ground. I have pitch shot...
Congrats Tefunk!! That sounds like a pretty tough course you are playing. Chipping/pitching is what does it for me also. Your confidence level at that course should through the roof! Next up, 75! My best of the year is a 77. Handicap is currently 9. I need to put my last round in, 84, and see what that does to it. Walked 9 today, 39.
