This is only my second post on here, but after receiving an email asking me "Where have ya been?" from The Sandtrap, I figured i would make another comment.
So after 3.5 years of golfing I realized i was gripping the club with a weak grip. Basically, both of my thumbs were pointing straight down the shaft which i was told usually results in a fade shot. That was my natural ball path...a high fade. I recently strengthened my grip and moved my left thumb to the right side of the shaft and put my right thumb on the left side of the shaft. It feels really strange, but i am going to stick with it to see how it pans out. Now my natural ball path is a high draw, which i am certainly happy with.
This new grip is making me hit each of my irons about 15 yards further. It is working quite well with every one of my clubs except my DRIVER. The driver is my worst club but I am determined to start hitting it better in 2013. I guess the new grip has something to do wit hit, but are there any tips for how i can straighten out my drives.... I feel like i either blast one right down the center or i hit a slice and sometimes over draw the tee shots. Again this does not happen to me with any other club except the driver.
Any tips or hints are greatly appreciated.
The last round i played i shot 5 over on the back and 2 over on the front for a 78. If i can get more accuracy with my driver i know it would only help me be able to score better.
