There is also a Neutral grip.  This is determined by how you put your top hand on the club.  Sean McTernan, a PGA professional at Brae Burn CC in Purchase, NY, explains in this video that all 3 are used by the top golfers in the game but also explains which one you should be using!

By looking down at your grip, see how many knuckles you can see.  If you can only see one, you have a weak grip.  If you can see two, you have a neutral grip.  And if you can see three or four, you have a strong grip.  The choice of which grip to use depends on your ball flight.  If you have a tendency to hook, you want a weak grip.  If you have a tendency to slice, you want a strong grip.  And if you hit the ball fairly straight most of the time, use a neutral grip.

Hitting good iron shots requires 2 elements – a good weight shift to provide power to the clubhead at impact, and secondly, you must strike the ball first to hit it solidly.  Thanks to David Nesbitt, PGA Professional, who gives you two tips to help with this.   I have a suggestion for his second drill with the lie board.  David mentions putting the lie board 8 inches behind the ball. My suggestion would be to slowly move the lie board forward, closing that distance until you have the lie board one inch behind and still not hit it.  Then you will have perfected this move!

If you’re frustrated with chunking or topping the golf ball, try these two simple tips and drills from David Nesbitt, PGA and start hitting your irons more consistently!

Every player on both the PGA and LPGA Tour has their own unique personality.  

This is a fun article by Golf Swing by Swing to match their personalities with current cars.  I really like Rickie Fowler matching up with a Mustang – Boss 429.  Suits him perfectly!  What would you be?  My favorite car when I was younger was a Jaguar Mark 10.  Sleek and luxurious.  That’s me!

Adam Scott

Which car matches a PGA or LPGA Tour Player's Personality?

The Australian moves serenely along every track, cruising over every bump. He’s a luxury model, but with plenty of power under the bonnet. He’s a Bentley.

Ian Poulter

Which car matches a PGA or LPGA Tour Player's Personality?

You could never accuse the Englishman of being understated, or quiet. He is a big, noisy but expensive Lamborghini Huracan, finished in bright yellow, with pink trim. And green tires!

Paula Creamer

Which car matches a PGA or LPGA Tour Player's Personality?

Pretty and pink. Powerful and pink. Practical and pink. A Mini Cooper. A pink Mini Cooper, obviously.

Rickie Fowler

Which car matches a PGA or LPGA Tour Player's Personality?

It doesn’t really matter, as long as it is bright orange and has something big, powerful and noisy under the hood. We are thinking maybe a Ford Mustang – Boss 429.

Rory McIlroy

Valtteri Bottas (FIN) Mercedes-AMG F1 W09 EQ Power+ at Mercedes-AMG F1 W09 EQ Power+ Launch and First Run, Silverstone, England, 22 February 2018.

Rory is the best. Rory is the biggest hitter. Rory’s swing is a thing of beauty. Rory McIlroy is a world beater. He is a winner. McIlroy is a Mercedes Formula One racing car.

Henrik Stenson

Which car matches a PGA or LPGA Tour Player's Personality?

You think that because Stenson is Swedish, safe and reliable that we are going to compare him with a Volvo, don’t you? When did you last see a Volvo engine blowing up? When did you last see a Volvo self-harming? No, Stenson is an Alfa Romeo.

I think we all remember the seagull stealing Steve Lowrey’s ball at the Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass. 

And though the other 9 may not be as famous, they are still extremely entertaining!

Many golf writers and commentators have said recently that they expect that some of the “elders’ on tour like Ernie Els, (45) Phil Mickelson(44), and Tiger Woods (39) will still contend for wins on the PGA Tour and maybe even win a Major or two.

And then there is the LPGA Tour. Again pundits are predicting good years for Christy Kerr, Inbee Park, and Stacy Lewis.

But not if the “25 and under” group has anything to say about it.

The young guns are coming - The "Under 25's" have something to say!The young guns are coming - The "Under 25's" have something to say!

Here is my list of the most promising 25 and under golfers on both the PGA and LPGA Tours for 2015.

In no particular order :
