Yes. Very much so. Fingers too parallel to the grip.

I already went a gripped a club and saw you were right (as always 🙄). I feel like the grip is in my fingers when I take the club in the air, but when I place it on the ground, it becomes “palmy.” I’ll keep working on it

I hate gripping it on the ground.

Yes, I know and consequently have abandoned that. I didn’t mean to suggest otherwise. What I meant to say was that now, while I set my grip with the club in the air in front of me, I feel like it becomes more palmy after I address the ball with club near/on the ground. I suppose I need to tighten my grip a little or maybe it’s just the feel and not real. Nonetheless, I’ll continue to be cognizant of it.

6/01/20 - first swing of the day. Still longer takeaway than I want, but elbow doesn’t appear to break 90*

second swing of the day:

A little steeper AoA than my usual

I think you have a new priority piece, @woodzie264:

01.jpg02.jpg

This is going to change the way the club shaft behaves at the top, how you get there, etc.

You need to make sure EVERY time you grip the club it's as far into the fingers as you can stand. And then a little bit more. 🙂

The red lines show how much of your "hand" goes out past the grip (the black thing between the red and yellow lines) and the yellow shows the distance between the grip and your wrist. The white shows the end of your knuckles.

In the top picture I've gripped it in the palm.

In the bottom picture I've gripped it in the fingers. Note the size of the red and yellow lines relative to each other.

This is your priority right now. You should not make another swing again without ensuring that this is right FIRST and does not CHANGE during the swing until it becomes an actual habit.

Aye, sir! And thank you, those lines are very helpful

it’s a sad day when my priority piece in now way involves the swing 😐

this video obviously does not give you a top view at address, but solely is to demonstrates that the club is in my fingers and not the palm

The club should be horizontal and with a bit more heel pad on top.

That angle greatly reduces the weight/pressure.

I noticed.  For some reason, when I tilt the club horizontally, despite the handle being in my fingers, I struggle with the club handle rolling into my palm. I’ll try again later today

That’s amazing. I’d drop that club in heartbeat if I tried that. I’ll take that as my personal challenge

Not sure if this is great, but I think it’s improved by the way it feels in my hand

I know it can be better and I’ll get it there.

While “gripping” is my new PP (see immediately above post), still recorded a couple of swings for the sake of recording a swing
