Since irons and woods use different setups and planes, should you use a different grip, too? Also, in this video, I show you that the faces of woods are not actually flat and look more open than they actually are.

    In the past it took years to put together a good playing set of woods and irons that fit your game. A good feeling club was deemed necessary for shot confidence. Oh the grip does change as the club’s get shorter, it’s about gaining control over those scoring shots.

    I agree with others about the grip. I was thinking of the grip of the club, not alignment and swing. I have always had a push with the Driver and hook the Irons. I thought about that for a while and because I didn’t release fast enough with the Woods and overcooked the release with the Irons I went to a smaller grip with the Woods and larger with the Irons and solved the problem. We all know smaller helps release and larger grips inhibit a quick release so as a PGA Teacher I started having people hit woods with different size grips and found a lot of problems were fixed. Of course you have to get the proper grip right and the swing consistent too. Once you get the grip, swing and alignment right or as good as you can really go. The size of the grip does make a difference.

    Shawn Clement is a quack.

    Some pretty good golfers, like Byron nelson, Jack Nicklaus, and Tom Watson never talked about different grips for different clubs.

    Now, part of the charm of acquiring a good set of clubs is finding a driver, fairway wood(s) and irons that you can hit straight with the same swing. That is part of the art of acquiring a good set. When you find such a set, go play!!

    Maybe it is just me, but I am not seeing a video on the grip issue on driver / irons.

      It’s more about driver and irons face alignments and shot shapes.
