Hidden skill of this game number 141...dealing with the grass. A friend told me to twitch my right hand closed at the moment of contact to fight the effects of tall or wet grass. Is this a thing? Currently, my method for dealing with long or wet grass is to strengthen my right hand grip and hope for the best then curse when lose a stroke to a twisted-open club face. What do you do to combat this kind of thing?
I've been Playing Golf for: 4 years My current handicap index or average score is: 22 My typical ball flight is: push fade (w/ driver) slight push (w/ long irons) push draw (w/ short irons) The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: push fade I've been having a lot of trouble with my driver this year. For the most part, I am pretty good from 185 yards (4i) and in. I've been measured on radar and my iron swing is about 2.4 degrees inside out with a face to path of 1.6 degrees right. So my typical iron shot is a slight push fade (i'm working on getting the face closed). However, I pretty much have to play for bogey on par 4s and 5s because my drive usually ends up in the trees. Drives that do hit the fairway usually only roll out to 200-210 yards because of my slice. Is the slice due to an out to in swing path or a heel strike? Why is my path out to in with the driver but not with the irons? Videos:
