It's not that. It's very disjointed. Left hand a little strong, right hand weak.

Before I start practicing a less-than-desirable grip, is this better? I want to have the right feel before I engrain the wrong thing.

Think about where the Vs are pointing. Left hand only, see where it points in a mirror. Then right hand should over lay the thumb so it’s V points in the same place. The right hand here looks weak because it’s pointing straight up. The other check for the left is how many knuckles you see at set up.

so, if my left hand is a bit strong, my right V should be pointed in the same direction? is not that what Erik wants me to address? I think I'm confused

Yes. But the video you posted has a strong left hand and weak right hand. Just rotate the right a bit to be stronger and make sure it sits on the left thumb along the life line.

A bit, but I think your right hand should sit higher on your left and even be a little stronger to match the left. It is like they are separated too much.

Exactly this.

Bringing hands closer with more overlap definitely feels different. 
 

It should feel different, more compact like both hands are one. FWIW, when Erik posted that video about the grip in October, I rechecked mine and I was off too. I saw movement when I gripped tighter (face closing). So I check it every time I grip now. It will feel odd for a while, but keep checking it. Try getting them more overlapped too. The Vs look better.

I actually looked at that last night...guess that wasn't apparent 😒

Now put your right thumb on the grip.

Jonny, how long have we been doing this?

You should come up for some work sometime.

ok.

apparently not long enough. 

agreed - need to wait til kids/wife's schedule slow down a little.  I've thought about it several times. I will definitely respond better to in-person instruction

    • Day 13: Mirror work again. Still on set up. I think my hips are more over my heels now, so now I’m mostly focused on having my knees bent a bit more. 
    • Thanks Bill. It's interesting that you consider the DG to be a low trajectory shaft. It makes me think that the fitter really didn't care enough to try to increase my apex to attempt to accommodate my low spin rate. He didn't take any measurement for club length either, so I'm apparently standard everything, but stiffer shaft to accommodate my swing speed.   To be fair, the fitter did say exactly that - they will adjust the lie angle if it doesn't work for me, but like I said in another reply, how would I ever know if it is not working for me if I don't have a basis for comparison with other lie angles? I also have fairly short legs, yet bizarrely a 35.5" wrist to floor measurement - which puts me at 2 degrees upright, according to Ping... Hence my concern that I'm just "standard" everything.
    • What shaft is your friend using?  Maybe a good place to start is that shaft profile.  From there, you have a pretty nice budget to get whatever irons you want.
    • @Nick-uk Just a thought, you can always get your lie adjusted (whether you do it now or later).  It’s pretty simple to have done down the road.  I had mine adjusted 1 degree upright after the fact. FWIW… We’re similar height, similar distance with the 7i.  I’ve been playing the DG S300 and S400 for as long as I’ve been playing, and very happy with them.  I did try different shafts once, ran back to the DG.  I can only assume the DG product life has existed for a long time for a reason. Also, unless someone is quite short or tall, most people will be fine with a “standard” fit.
    • Unless I’m working off of outdated information, the standard Dynamic Gold shafts haven’t really changed much in decades. They’re known to be low launch and high spin, kind of the preferred trajectory of yesteryear. Again, spin rate alone is not enough information, but low spin rate + low apex height suggests an issue to me. It could just be your swing, but it’s also possible that shaft doesn’t fit you anyway. Just for reference I’m a “low spin” ball striker myself, but my 7i averages 5900 rpm, not 4000. My average apex height is 95’ though. I play KBS Tours. I was fitted out of DG S300 years ago. They don’t work for me.
