Moe Norman/ Ben Hogan/ Byron Nelson etc
Moe was quoted to say he holds the left hand tight, very tight.
Hogan, not sure, I suspect he was of the firm then light.
Okay, many say Moe was a short hitter. Did his holding tight of the left hand hinder clubhead speed for his lack of distance?
What advantage or disadvantage is there in holding tight with the left over the right?
Moe was extremely accurate, did that play a role as well?
Having a correct position hold is critical. How much does grip (hold) pressure hold the hammer on most swings.
Its seems to me that a firmer to tight hold with the left hand (speaking about right hand players here) would give more control and the better ability to really go after it with the right side with out steering. Plus would it help with the ol double cross as well.
I also heard that Long Drive players have gone more to firmer holding then the light hold that was thought to have produced longer shots of old.
