    No real discussion on turf? My course is Rock hard.
    Others are lush and soft.
    Also…I couldn’t hear the guy speaking. It was like hushed talking in church.
    Even at top volume

      Ps and what about those that hit thin like me? Vs my playing buddy taking divots that are humongous. Me nothing. He could use bounce and me not so much.

    No mention of types of turf you play on or turf interaction?

    Forward lean is a result of LAG. Trajectory is dependent upon COR. The sole touches the ground
    after impact ie after 5 ten thousandths of a second of iron face and ball.
    So how important is bounce in a properly hit iron?

    This doesn’t make sense. If an iron loft is x, and the ball departure angle is y, x-y=bounce? While not suggesting that’s wrong because it may actually work out… but it doesn’t exactly work as described. You can’t ignore dynamics, and while he goes on to talk about that with the “fold pattern”, neutral still doesn’t work that way.

    If as an example, you have a beach ball. You take a board at 45º and whack the ball, what’s the departure angle going to be? How about a bowling ball? With enough force, the departure angle varies wildly. Thus, the bounce angle seems to be a terrible thing to leave up to that.

    Of course, that doesn’t mean it’s wrong. It might accidentally correlate just fine, but it’s, shall we say, spurious. Like, Divorce rate in Maine correlates with Per capita consumption of margarine – Correlation: 99.26% (r=0.992558).

    It’s possible, but if that’s not actually why, that’s how misinformation starts.

    So with an early release and my iron shafts having only a very slight forward angle of attack at impact what type of bounce should I be looking for? A v-sole like the Srixon 565 or something more standard like a Callaway Rogue or Epic iron?

      I’m like you so however I ask do you take divots or hit fat often or are you more often hitting thin?
      Thin equals less bounce more often and bigger divots require more bounce to enter and exit turf efficiently.
      A Srixon v sole grind is best of both worlds.

        I’ll hit more thin shots that fat ones. I’m currently gaming The BenHogan PTx but going to start looking for something more forgiving as my ball striking is not too consistent.

WATCH: The difference between Neutral, Strong, and Weak grips

Published

on

We have all heard that “good golf begins with a good grip,” but all too often information on how to grip the club lacks personalization. In a series of Instant Swing Fixes, I will be going through all areas of the golf swing to help golfers personalize the scientific information that leads to these conclusions of how to best swing a golf club.

First up is this 5-minute show on Grip Types: Neutral, Weak, Strong and how they affect the rotation of the club. Next up will be “Face Squaring” followed by “Methods of Taking Your Grip.”

Here’s a response to a question on my Instagram page from Neil Riley. He asked if he should steepen the angle of attack in the downswing in order to stop hitting fat shots. In this video, I share two of the reasons why golfers might be hitting fat shots, as well as two drills to practice that will help them stop hitting it fat.
