Can they? Sure.

 

Do they? Almost never, as in 0.0000001% of the time they'll take a divot that big. Maybe less. :-)

This is similar to the chart to which I've referred a few times. It looked something like this.

 

 

 

It may have also been something like this:

As soon as saw this I thought.... Yup that's me!

I just went ahead and gripped a club now and tried to get it much firmer to the point that I couldn't feel as much of a difference from set up through impact.. My swing felt much more powerful and even I think I was a little ristricted which prevented me from going so far back at A4..

I will continue playing around with this grip pressure but the real question is there a point of diminishing returns or even where it is counter productive to grip with more pressure? Also, how do I really know what good pressure is?

Do you agree that I will be able to have much better contact with tho stronger pressure?

Great visual so thanks!
