Is a neutral grip preferable, or can a strong grip work for any type of pattern?

If you think a strong grip is bad watch bubba Watson. His grip is really strong, and its easier for him to work the ball.
i like a neutral to weak grip so i feel the back of my left hand mirroring the face but man if i get slack and don’t turn it over……..huuuuuge slice
a low smoking slice that goes high at the end and falls left
I have begun the process of weakening my left hand, it is paying dividends but it is not easy by any measure.
you are right, many thanks
excellent philosophy on the grip….i have a very strong left hand grip and it haunts me because so many pros try and neutralize it. I have been trying to study zach johnsons swing, but now I will take a good look at azinger and duvals. Thanks for the tips.
probably not an issue with your grip rather than your attack on the ball. “Every action has an equal and opposite reaction” -Newton …so probably you are not descending downwards on the ball and perhaps have a scooping motions. People regularly ask, “How can i put spin on my wedges” – simply by trapping the ball and hitting downward with a lot of club head speed is what does the trick.
Thanks for the explanation.
I prefer strong grip because I can feel the swing much comfortable with it. I often hit a low trajectory and the ball rushes forward after landing.
The question is how can I hit a high trajectory ball with a strong grip in order to land the ball on the green.
Thanx, I really appreciate your video and your view on the grip.
And they you get to the next level of learning and realize you don’t *need* to have a “roll-and-early-swivel” release….. you could very well be using a angeled or even *vertical* release pattern. Heck, you can even use almost a minimum of club face rotation and keep it 90 deg perfectly (almost) square to club shaft swing path althrough the swing(!) without miss out having a “release” – and play perfect golf (although you miss out one power acc – club head rotation) It’s all about hands/wrists.
nothing worse than wind noise during a clip.
Back in High School i would bring the club way past parallel and across the line making me hit these “bananna” type shots. Well to fix that i strengthened my grip. Now, 3 years later, i have a 4 handicap and my swing is way better than it used to be, but my grip is still extremely strong (almost 4 knuckles visible). I CANT change it. I tried it for 5 rounds now, but blow EVERY shots 10-50 yrds. Is it a must change or can i become a scratch golfer with it, considering the rest of my game is good?
I started using a really strong grip with my driver because basically no matter what I did I would either pull or cut the ball too much. Now I am able to hit long, straight drives.
Every time I have a lesson the teacher tries to correct my strong grip. At last someones says a strong grip is OK – yippee. Why can’t pros work with what I have, instead of trying to change everything that isn’t “perfect”?
I have watched several of your videos and like them. You have a good speaking voice so that improves the videos overall.
Please adjust your audio levels to be more or less the same for all your videos. Some I have to turn my volume way up and when I watch another the sound blasts me out of my seat.
Thanks, keep ‘em coming.
What kind of shot do you want me to hit?
hit the damn ball!
