I had a major issue with my last round, drive would start straight, then fade 30ft to the right into deep, unrecoverable OB. See my post under "how'd you play last".
Anyway, talked to a pro, saying my left wrist was cupped at the top. I went through some swings last night, and in order to go from a correct 'see 2 knuckle' grip which cups my left wrist, to a flat wrist at the top, I obviously can't keep my left wrist still, it must flatten through the backswing. I checked with my normal grip, and it feels like it doesn't move, but the wrist is really even more cupped at the top. "feel isn't real".
The only way I could easily get through the backswing to flat at the top, was to start with a flat left wrist at address which meant weaken the left hand grip such that my arms felt more like a V, inside of elbows pointing more outwards, the right hand resting on top but not over the left thumb.
Haven't hit a ball like that yet, but it seems a cause for even more aggressive fade/slice?
Any suggestions? Should you actually go from slight cupped at address to flat at the top and back down through flat?
Secondly, I read everywhere that hitting straight is a fools game, and you should learn your shape (fit and trim thank you very much). My shot shape is obviously a fade.
But then you read, if you slice/fade, aim right, don't aim left because that makes it worse. So, if I am playing a fade as my shot shape, how do I get the white dimpled thing in the middle of the long short mown green thing, without aiming more left? Do you aim more left with your shoulders, but close up your stance for a draw position?
Thanks for any help you can give me. I will post a swing when I can get time.
