This is very, very important to a lot of golfers who have subjected themselves over the years to hitting a sly shot where the clubface is too open at the point of impact. So what a lot of people do, they try and strengthen their golf grip normally one or two ways, by getting their left-hand if you’re a right-handed golfer more over on top of the grip whereas a neutral grip would want to sit pretty much on top with 2.5 knuckle showing on the left-hand. Strong golf grips tend to get the left-hand a lot more over and then the right-hand, a lot more underneath the club. And what this will do is the hands and the palms face each other as they move into impact is shook down the clubface and get aiming left of the target. The problems with this is it tends to go hooks and poor shapes. It also goes a little bit lower than you would normally see.
