My Swing (woodzie264)

So, your grip being in the palm is why it has to roll from "fake strong" at setup to twisted left at impact.

Be the chicken now that's a steady head

Compared to what @woodzie264? 6 months - It looks pretty damn good to me. Nice work.  That is not an easy fix...actually nothing about changing your swing is easy. Well done. 

Almost everyone has multiple things that can be improved in their swings. The idea with sticking to a priority piece is that it's hard to make one change, let alone several at the same time, and the p

Let me also say this @woodzie264: I think you can play "good" golf with a palmy grip. I also think it's a relatively "easy" (once you do it) thing that is only really going to help.

Have you seen the video of me in the green shirt gripping a club?

I feel like maybe when you set the club down, you don't un-hinge your wrists enough, and that's when the club may slide up into your palm.

I have watched it...and I feel like my grip is correct when I take my grip...but there is no denying that it slips at some point into my palm (which is the frustrating part because I already know where it needs to be, I put it there, but it doesn't stay. I have tried giving it a death grip to maintain, but then I would expect the extra tension isn't good either.

Yeah, no to the death grip. Firm but not that firm.

I feel like this is what's happening with me as well. I feel like I've identified when I'm actually not "wrapping" the heel around vs just pressing it down and to the side but I know it's sliding back more towards the palm. Continuing to work at it.

Working on this as well and beginning to think I'm brain dead or something. Lol

Can you both "uncock" your wrists just fine? Or does putting the club down necessitate that you let the grip slide up into your palm(s)?

I've not met someone who can't slightly downcock to keep the club in their fingers properly, but… there's going to be a few out there who can't, I'm sure.

No wrist problems that I'm aware of and I'm able to do everything in the pictures/videos just fine. I've tried gripping it with holding the club up and I've gripped it down at my side used in Mikes example and I end up in the same boat with it slipping towards the palm at some point. I'll be posting another video of it all soon.

sadly, I have no excuse. no issues here...other than a completely unexplained reason why I don't seem to be able to maintain the club in my fingers.  I'll do another video for myself (like the before this last one) to see how things looks and maybe post it if I see any clues for my ineptitude

@iacas, not much here, but I clearly feel the butt of my club wanting to slide into my palm when I set my club down at  address. With my glove on (not pictured), it’s improved. Is the club wanting to slide into my palm because I don’t wrap the heel of my hand over enough? I feel like if I wrap it over towards the right much more than I do, it will be to the point of turning the face of the club open…which I assume is not as it should be. 
 

It’ll be a sad day if I have to drive all the way to Erie for you to physically put my hands in the grip correctly 😏

There’s an airport.

Long thumb, Jonny.

That was very helpful. I think I’ve had a eureka moment! I’ll work on this and post tomorrow. Hopefully there will be no need for Grip Video #347 😁

Yeah. But put it down on the ground. 🙂

Ok….but how does that look before I put it down? I want to make sure I’m good there before jumping all the way to “putting it down on the ground”…

While that’s an obvious attempt at humor, I am being somewhat serious. I expect problems will occur when I put the club down as that’s when it slips, so I’d like to make sure this part is good first.

6/11/21 - starting to get callouses 

Any better?

As someone who is still getting comfortable with this and recognizing my own tendencies this is what I see.

Around 8-9 seconds you do the "press" action with the pad and let the thumb lie flat but then you move your thumb back around 11-12 seconds in. Video for reference with the "press" vs the "wrap".

Again, I'm still getting comfortable with this myself and if I'm giving bad advice someone please tell me to stfu.

    • I've also only played Kelly and The Links Sandestin.  Both were a lot of fun.  Kelly was my favorite.  Sandestin maybe a little too tight and too many houses in danger of my tee shots. 🙂
    • Four rounds to catch up on: 7/20: Finally got my bro out to Croasdaile to play. I shot 51-44 from the blues that included a nine on the 9th hole. Didn’t putt well: a four putt and four three putts. My bro shot 59 on the front, which isn’t bad at all for him since the front is the tougher side out there, but he played awful on the back. 7/23: Back to the home course for the next three rounds. This one was a nice little 87 where I made a quad on the par-3 third and a triple on 14, but played well apart from that, including back to back birdies on 9 and 10. 7/30: I played the day after we got back from vacation and shot a pretty poor 96. Made a nine on the second hole and it just went downhill from there: 49-47 were the final numbers. 8/1: The best round of the four: shot 40 on the front with no doubles, then a 44 on the back which included a triple on 13 and a double on 17. Total is 84, which I’m super happy with. Also dropped my handicap from 13.8 to 13.5. I’m probably gonna play tomorrow as well, so looking forward to that!
    • Adam, you always give great advice. May I make one suggestion? Use a dry erase marker rather than a sharpie. Much much easier to clean off the club face. 🙂
    • Yea, not something you can decide on your own. Someone can say all the benefits of a single plane swing, but it might not work for you at all.
