    Jordan Spieth's grip

    This is how good young players can get ruined by well-intentioned but wrong-headed "instruction". Curt Byrum of the Golf Channel thinks Jordan Spieth's grip is "funny" and "highly unusual" for a world-class player.



    Kelvin explains where Byrum goes wrong:

    Byrum thinks his grip is funny looking. If you don't think about what the hands are doing, you won't understand why Jordan's right thumb looks this way. Right forearm flexion and supination, trademarks of a drive/hold release create this "funny looking" grip position. The right hand/forearm are offsetting the movements of the left therefore create stability of the clubface. Note fast roll over of clubface occurs way past the impact zone. Oh he's just good so his instructor won't change it. Well, what if it's the other way around? Maybe he's successful because of this. Duh.


    Next we can expect a critique of Jordan's footwork and how he succeeds in spite of it...oh, wait a minute...

    I see a ton of similarities to Garrigus in that DTL shot. Thanks for posting.

    Great stuff! Is Jordan's left-hand grip really as weak as Curt Byrum says in this video?

    P.S.: Jordan went to the same university I did. Hook 'em!!
