I like the postings, and prefer a weighted shot more than a gripped down shot. But when I do play a gripped down shot, I startinitially by setting my bottom thumb extended down the shaft to the end of the grip for hand position consistency. Then adjust, if needed. A creature of habit.

@armymedic2 - if your asking about a weighted shot from Hatchman I mean one where I try and strike it at different swing clocking positions; speeds; etc, to vary distance, height, spin, or runout. Utilizing only a few of my med/short distance irons and/or wedges.

yes I defo choke up, I use my pitching wedge from 70 to 120 yards, full shot 120 then feel comes into play big time grip down and feel it in, in my eyes it needs a lot of experience to get decent at it, I don't like full lob wedges and sand wedges brings the leading edge and out of bounds into play.

I always choke down on the club when trying to shave some distance off, probably 2 inches or so.

I'd like to choke 1/2 inch down on full distance shots as well, but I don't seem to be able to stick with it throughout my rounds.

What is the difference between choking up and choking down? Most people choke up while everyone grips down. I very seldom choke up or down. Just take a little off.

I have subconsciously adopted a choke-down grip on all wedge shots.  Seems to help control under 50 or so yards.  Using that logic, maybe I should choke-down drives?... :roll:

Depends on the lie and such. I typically choke down a bit. Sometimes I'll just hit an iron with a 3/4 backswing length. It might be a combo of both.
