Good stuff Cipher! We sound similar in that my biggest strength is also my iron game and my biggest weakness is also my driver. Further, my driver has been a bit better overall lately thanks to a video (not Mikes, but rather James' video here: http://thesandtrap.com/t/44307/hitting-up-or-down-with-the-driver-in-an-inline-pattern/90_30#post_847924). I will be checking out Mike's very soon here (probably on my lunch break!)
I'm mostly fascinated by the fact that you made such a drastic change with your grip. I have an interlocking grip (with a glove) and will occasionally experiment with an overlapping grip just to see how it feels. (By 'occasionally' I mean, I'll try it for 2 shots during one range session every year or two ;)) It has always felt like I was really only holding the club with my left hand and the right was just kind of there. Especially at the top of the backswing, it would always feel like my right hand was slipping off the club. Just curious, what prompted you to change your grip?
Yep I think we may be pretty similar in that regard. I think both videos are great. I love both of them. Mike's video although it is targeted for people that slice, just helped give me a feel that might be working for me. I will keep trying it and we will see. Like I said I don't really know why it "might" be squaring up the club face better for me. Well, I think I do actually know, I just don't want to think about all that right now, I just want to feel it.
I switched grips because I have a tendency to weaken my right hand grip when playing and practicing using the interlock. Also with the interlock I felt like my hands always wanted to pull apart at the point where the interlock is. I could never seem to keep it in place. This probably sounds strange but when taking my grip(the overlap) I can feel the exact spot where the first two knuckles of the left hand are every time with the tip of the right pinky. It puts me in a better right hand position every time. I struggled with squaring up the club a bit at first but I stuck with it and love it now. Also it feels really good with no glove(TWSS). I may not be able to do a lot of things well yet, but the least I can try and do is set up well every time.
