  1. Dear friends: I have been searching for new ways and approaches to golf which will make golf game swing easier and consistent and forgiving. Here goes #1. - use two fingers and let the left hand more leading, and make a handle to be More of ONE unit. This new idea will make you think more and deeper. Please let me know what you think. Thanks!
  2. What are the general thoughts about Brooks Koepka's putting grip with the extended right pointer finger? After playing around with this over the past few days it is a change I'm actually really interested in making permanently. I often feel extreme disconnect between my hands and the club while putting and this is something that really unites the two for me.

  4. Cornu Tension in Golf Greetings, Mattie watches a lot of golf swings on YouTube. She writes to me about those who have a "hip grip" and those who don’t. She suggests I write something about what she calls the "hip grip” and on Cornu Tension and share it with the golf community. The hip grip The hip grip is the core. Everyone talks about the core. In this view, the view that Mattie wants me to share with you—the core is a grip at the hips. Just like the muscles in your hands make a grip, so do the muscles in your hips. To get a hip grip your biology has to accomplish the p
  5. To the extent those of you with overly active hands can sometime fight the hooks, I have been tinkering and really like the idea of taking what Furyk does and modifying it just a bit so that the hands do not disconnect. I tried working on his pure double overlap grip -- but found that the bottom hand (my right hand because I am a righty) kept getting disconnected especially through impact and did not impart a solid, confident feeling. I made a slight modification to that Furyk double overlap and inserted a small interlocking of the tip of the left index tip and that seems to have worked perf
  6. There's some good stuff in here and also some ideas that I question. Nonetheless an interesting watch...
  7. Hello! I'm looking to change from standard size grip to midsize. I have played NDMC for a few years now and i think they are alright/good. I looked around on a few forums and found that people liked the crosslines and i thought about giving them a go. The thing is i also read that the new crosslines isn't as good as the old ones? I'm afraid that the good things i have read about the crossline only applies to the old crossline. I'm also looking at some MC PLATINUM which looks good but i'm not sure they are worth twice the crossline. These are the two i'm considering: Lamki
  8. Hi everyone, I am struggling with my grip. One of my biggest problems in golf is I have a tendency to rotate the club face open on the downswing, and I think it may be because of my grip. This first picture is what has generally felt "normal" to me, or what I think of as neutral. Now, when I swing with only my right hand on the club, the face always stays square, and never rotates open on the downswing. So, when I go to the top of my backswing and stop with only my right hand on the club, I'm fairly certain I'm in a proper position, then I put my left hand on wi
  9. Hi there, I was reviewing basic fundamentals and my first aha moment came with the grip. Now I understand pressure points and their function and in my pre shot routine I include how I grip the club. First I grip the club with the left hand. I try to feel the cock and uncock of the left wrist and its pressure point #2 to allow do the job. Then the pressure point #1 go on its position and try to feel how push the shaft down and how important is to be located on the correct position. Finally pressure point #3. For me its location affect how the face is going to be com
  10. I'm working on a stronger grip, and it is dawning on me that I can best do it if I do one of two things: Get to a simulated impact position and then fiddle with the club so that it is where I want it to be, Get to A6, and then rotate the club in my hand so that when my wrist is flat that the club is where I want it to be. Either of those two things will get me the same grip, and when I get into address position from there, my grip is where I think my instructor wants it to be. If I try to get to the grip directly from address, I seem to never get it strong enough. The wh
  11. @Vinny Cap's thread got me thinking. Some years ago I read that Dave Pelz considered the belly putter (anchored) to be the "best" putting approach based on a statistical study he had performed. Next best was left hand low. I do not know how many versions of putting he studied and now anchoring is not permitted by the Rules. Conceivably, Mr. Pelz might have discovered an even better technique. As the poll demonstrates, there are a lot of ways to swing a putter and I suspect the list is far from complete. I have tried a few times to use "left hand low" but I've used the reverse overlap
  12. This came up in a different thread so lets see if you do putt with a finger pointed down the shaft, if you did putt with a finger down the shaft or you use a different grip all together. If you select other, you can tell us your grip style.
  13. I use a ten finger grip and find the overlap and interlock grips extremely uncomfortable, however every fitter/coach ive seen has reccomended that i at least try the other two grips at a range and to see if i have improvements. i cant get past 3 shots with out feeling like the club will fly out of my hands or my fingers will break. is the ten finger grip necessarily going to impede my game?
  14. Hey guys my ball striking has been pretty good lately but my putting has been lacking. I feel my putts aren't going straight,have good speed, or have control over them. I use a single overlapping grip and I was using that for everything do you think I should maybe switch it up and do a baseball grip? Or a left hand low grip to maybe get more control? Thanks
  15. To put this post in context, I have never been a good putter. In the middle of an AimPoint lesson, the instructor advised me to get a putting lesson, I frequently cut across the ball, raise my head, hit the ball rather than rolling etc. Making anything outside of 6 feet is a rarity, and I'll three putt at least twice a round. That probably gives a good summary. As a 12 handicap, it's comfortably the worst part of my game, and not for the want of practice - it's just never got better. So, about a week and a half ago, I started looking at putting left-hand low after seeing Rory trying it in
  16. So… I've finally got my hands on some of the new Edel round putter grips made by PURE. I loved the originals (made by Tacki-Mac) but they would get hard and dry out a little bit if you weren't using them too often (I think the oils in your hands helped keep them soft and moisturized). Anyway… The new grips are a little bit thicker. Many people might not even notice, but I've always been quite sensitive to these sorts of things (or swing weight, etc.) You can see how much thicker in the pictures, and the last one is versus a grip still in the plastic wrapper.
  17. Just switched all my grips aside from putter to midsize MCC PLUS 4 Golf Pride grips. (From Golf Pride m31 in irons, Lamkin 3 gen ACE in woods, and Golf Pride NDMC wedges. All standard size.) Initial thoughts = WOW. I have regular sized hands, wear a medium or large glove (prefer the snugness of medium.) testing = two buckets at indoor golf driving range/dome i love the feel of the grips. Softer than I am used to. The tackiness is perfect, (at first it thought they were too"smooth") initial concerns went away after two minutes of practice today was able to grip
  18. What do you think about cork putter grips? I think they sound pretty interesting. I'm not a fan of really soft putter grips but I do like the light weight oversized options. Unfortunately many of the putters today feel too muted for me and I'm not sure if it's always the face, the grip or a combination. Of course like many fisherman, I love the feedback I get with a cork grip. Why not try it with my putter? I think the option could provide some really good feedback and help my distance control and feel. What are your thoughts? Bettinardi had some options available on their
