Palms Not Facing Each Other

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
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.
