2 questions.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I have two questions. #1 Is it alright to have a strong grip with say 3-4 knuckles?  #2 I tend to have a more forward ball position with all my clubs, is that ok or should I work on putting it back just a bit?

It all depends on what you are doing with your swing, and what you want to do with it.

 

Jack Nicklaus recommended a fairly constant ball position for full shots (just inside the left instep for R-handed golfers). Ben Hogan, however, recommended moving the ball forward for longer clubs, and inched backward toward center as clubs got shorter.

 

Both Jack and Ben won a lot of golf tournaments. But, each player decided on a standard set-up  and got benefits out of a consistent plan.

 

Same goes for grip. If you have a strong grip and hit the ball OK, why change? Main thing is to be consistent, or at least systematic if you have some variations in grip.

Thanks for the input! That really does help.
