I was suggesting hands in, club head more out.

But I would listen to @iacas.

Same thing I'm saying with the hands. I hadn't gotten to the clubhead yet, but yeah, that.

Better. Now do it slowly, and with a ball, and start with short (1/3 length) swings.

It seems Day 1 of the COVID challenge was similar what you’re recommending here, right? I’ll use the ball during future practice sessions, but wanted to clarify the length of backswing you wanted

This was my Day 1 submission:

Palmy.

Which is why you then do this:

But yes, day 1 was kinda up your alley.

Ok

that definitely feels different. Thanks. Admittedly a bit embarrassing you have to take me all the way back to “the grip” 🙄

Better. If you get a photo where you can actually see the heel pad, post that too. 😉

If you do it right, you should be able to hold the club with just your index finger and heel pad like Erik did in the first video.

More across the base of the pinkie. Here are my tweaks:

  • You see how diagonal the fingers are to the grip? Make them more perpendicular.
  • If you're going to grip with the club horizontal, don't also put your forearm horizontal. This just lines the grip up to go up your palm.
  • If you want your forearm at this angle, grip the club when it's nearly vertical.
  • You should see more of the heel pad and less of the base of the left pinkie.

More like that (blue rectangle) with the whole heel pad able to sit on top (pink outline oval).

It might help to think of holding the grip like you would a briefcase. You wrap your hand around the handle just enough so the weight is cradled in the fingers and then you close your hand. You wouldn’t palm a briefcase handle.

Yup.

And the picture is better, yeah. Be careful when you grip the club with the head on the ground, though, for the same reasons: it tends to go across the palm.

Can't see the left hand grip in the video, so it may be fine. Just be careful.

I’ll have to make it part of routine to grip in air. Thank you
