    Greetings Coach:After many years I am going to use the overlapping grip,i have been doing winter drills and thought I would try the overlapping grip.I was told years ago that the overlapping grip did not work well for people with short stubby fingers,that’s me.I like how the club feels in my hands with this grip although I have not yet hit any balls. Nothing is different in the way my hands look on the club ,the v’s point over my right shoulder,two knuckles on my left hand,my question is there anything that I should be expecting to be different? I have looked at your grip tips and I don’t see there should be but I wanted to ask.Thanks

      No issues. I use the overlapping grip. I don’t have long fingers. I tried the interlocking and it hurt my pinky so I switch and never looked back. The overlapping put the club securely in the left hand as you are holding it in all fingers of the weaker hand and you take 1 finger of your stronger hand off the club. This is why I promote this grip. Keep doing it.

    Paul. I kept asking if you would consider Byron Swing Machine to make your point for all to see.

    This lesson would have been ideal using the Iron Byron. Thanks. You did a good job nevertheless.

      It seems to me that Iron Byron has a built in swing plane that cannot change. Golfers however have swing faults that alter the plane. Good lesson on those swing faults, their effect and how to avoid.

        The machine does keep it on plane because it is made out of metal. If you turn your body and do nothing with your arms the club would flatten towards 90 degrees to the axis (body) 100% of the time. So even though you are not made of metal you can still flatten the plane like the machine. This is shown in an upcoming tip. Keep in mind they modeled the machine after Byron Nelson’s golf swing. So the machine replicates his downswing plane which is 90 degrees to the axis (body).

      I may do some tips at some point with the machine but that is a product I still sell and have sold for years. Not sure it’s fair to those who have purchased my product that I give it all away on IG.
