Left thumb on grip

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My problem is not the right thumb but the left thumb. It gets to tight and ultra short on the grip. What I have tried is flexing my elbows like you see Ernie Els does in the preroutine and that lengthens my thumb and address clubhead above the ball

Not really an issue. Some golfers have long left thumbs, some shorten it up. Greg Norman took his grip, then brought his left thumb closer to butt end  (shortening it) to increase grip pressure. Depends on the golfers.

Yea for me the left thumb is shorter than Greg Norman so it is an issue for me I end up gripping so tight that only the muscle between my left thumb and left forefinger are feeling the weight of the club and I end up flipping my left wrist thru the ball

My left thumb is shorter even more than Greg Norman. I finally tried something that worked. I looked at Tommy Two Gloves left thumb and it wraps around the handle. So I can now have ultra short thumb. You see both joints are flexed The base of my thumbprint and base of my thumb digit joint so the only way I can grip is wrap around thumb.
