Palms Not Facing Each Other

6 posts in this topic

Now I know palms are supposed to face each other. My grip is odd in that my right palm faces up. My wrist is turned right nearly the whole way. I developed this over the years. If I want to hit a nice straight drive I just grip it and rip it. If I want a fade I turn that right wrist left a bit. If I want a draw I turn it right. I am incredibly consistent like this. Lately I've been trying to fix my grip but it just isn't going well. Now my question is. If I'm doing it the wrong way and getting the right result do I leave it alone?

I wouldn't say the palms face each, other than a putting grip, here's some pics.  To keep it simple, you can seen the palm of the right hand faces towards the "top" of the left hand.

I'm uploading my videos for the My Swing forum right now. My right hand is literally palm up. It's odd and wonky but it works. I know it's the wrong way to do it but it's killing me trying to fix it.

I know it started when I was younger and realized that I would hit a slice because the clubface was open at impact. I knew that my right wrist wasn't turning over like it should and I couldn't get it to do it right. So I started swinging with my right wrist in that impact position at start.

    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      Look at Ben Hogan. He played in exactly one Open Championship. Before Arnold Palmer brought it back into the fold as something you should be playing every year it was just too expensive for such a little purse to win. There wasn't much prestige in winning it during that time.  Look at the US open. Since 1993, only 52% of the time a non-US golfer won the US Open. From 1950 till 1993 only 92% of was won by US golfers.   Same with the PGA Championship. Since 1993 the US has only won 56% of them. From the time they went to stroke play (1958) till 1992 the US won 86% of them.  Same with The Masters. Since 1993 the US has won 56% of them. From 1950 till 1992 the US won 77% of them.  It just goes to show you that the influx of non-US golfers to the PGA Tour field of players has made it that much more difficult for US golfers to win a major.  Could I say that it was 30% easier for Jack to win those majors because of the non-US golfers who stayed away from traveling to the US to play?  US Open: 40% less likely US player wins after 1993
      PGA Championship: 30% less likely a US Player wins after 1993
      The Masters: 20% less likely a US Player wins after 1993

    • Longer or More Accurate?
      That doesn't make it a trick question. People aren't so lousy with accuracy that they're off 200 yards, but their tee shots travel 200 yards toward the target fairly often. The 10% thing helps to adjust them to the proper scale. I hit my driver 270, but I don't miss by 1/4 of that distance (67.5 yards). The wildest 100-shooting golfers are about +/- 10°. Their average is about 7°. 80-golfers are around 6°. 70 golfers probably about 5°. PGA Tour pros are around 3.5°. So 10% of those numbers are 0.7, 0.6, and 0.5°, with 0.35° for PGA Tour players. And yet, give each of them a full 1° (or  14% more accuracy for 100-golfers, 17% more accuracy for 80-golfers, 20% more accuracy for 70-golfers, and nearly 30% more accuracy for PGA Tour players… and they still come up short (or, at the PGA Tour level, only begin to break even). This means that the poll is biased, indeed, but in the opposite direction you think, @Marty2019. The poll could have said "would you choose 25% more accuracy or 10% more distance" and everyone (generalized to groups, not individuals) would STILL be better off choosing the distance. The only "trick" is that people value accuracy way, way too much, to the point where many are happy to take only a 10% improvement in accuracy while even a 25% improvement still can't account for the added value of driving the ball an extra 10% farther.
