    Hang on!!! I’ve got “5 lessons” and “Secret’s in the dirt”… your saying
    the club should not be in the fingers but more in the palm??

  2. 2009willwill says:

    @HabloIrlandes more in the plam, just on your left hand I think.

    @2009willwill Thanks Will, I think I may need a lie down in a darkened
    room, I feel like I’ve just discovered that the earth is not flat after all!

  4. Karl_irl says:

    @Farsigh thanks man, I get the right hand, its just the left is so
    different to what the majority of pro’s would teach, that being the club in
    the fingers of the left hand, as opposed to what Mike & Elk are saying re
    what Mr Hogan did, which was across the left palm.

    @flowerdrop1 Thats a hoot. If you dont believe that the footwork and the
    pivot run the show which is what The Move was all about then I dont know
    what to say. Ive told people. Ive shown people and when they get it they
    improve. Im not saying that you cant play creditable golf hanging left and
    taking pork chop divots. You can! But there are limitations like with
    anything else.

    This sevam guy sure is in love with himself.

    Mike and Steve, one thing you don’t show here is the part where Hogan
    balances the club under the butt pad and hooks the left index finger around
    the grip. He then completes the grip by wrapping the rest of the fingers
    and placing the thumb. How does this relate to what you show here? Hawkwatch

    Interesting about extending the arms Mike. It flattens your left wrist and
    bends your right, eh?

    Hello Sevam, I love your videos. When you are talking about the left thumb
    (I notice you have no glove too) well, I hit the ball good as far as I can
    tell but I’ve always eventually worn out that thumb area on the
    glove…does that make sense ? I play a lot all year round and need a new
    glove say six times a year. Thanks

    @MrLocacat I stopped wearing a glove because I always blew out the thumbs
    and wore out the heel pad area. I also got sick of people saying that it
    was an indication that something was wrong with my grip and trying to get
    me to fix things that I did not believe were broken.

    i agree with Hawkwatch, what is overlooked generally when people are
    talking about hogans grip is how Hogan really described the left hand grip.
    OF THE PALM. pg 20. its not resting in or on, is UNDER.

    Same thing i was thinking. That is not what sevam is showing.
