Did Moe play the ten finger grip when you first met him?


Yes, I remember Moe using a ten finger grip. Greg Lavern said Moe used a Vardon earlier if I remember right….


I feel like I could get way more club face rotation if I used a baseball grip. My poor flexibility in my right wrist seems to prevent any chance of having the face up at P3 with a Vardon grip.

Interesting post SM99...
You could also consider a reverse-overlap for the same reason. I too have issues getting much face rotation.
I am pretty good as a shut faced player, but have considered making some changes.
Are you planning on changing the grip? If yes, let us know how that goes.

To cut costs on lost balls :( I think I'll try grip changes at a range, the next time I go.

Still working on mod 2, and I actually think I pulled a groin muscle. Or I have a hernia...

Sorry RatMan, they aren't all from the same swing, so don't make for a good gif.

Tremendous leg work, lots of lateral movement. The flexing, particularly into the left knee pressures down into the ground.

Fantastic angle to see what he's doing there. Thanks for sharing Lag.

Thanks Lag for posting those still images of Moe from your video as I had requested.

One thing I really love about Moe is how he maintained his spine tilt from address to impact.

It's very important to maintain spine tilt from the top down to P3. This creates an open corridor for the arms to slot freely and keep the clubshaft behind the body down to the P3 launching pad. From there it's all a green light to hit the gas pedal. Hogan referred to this as "the free ride down" and that is correct as long as the ride has an open road to travel. If the hand and arm path is cut off, there is no ride other than OTT. I never once saw Moe come OTT.

I was just watching Martin Hall talking about the right ankle's inward roll. He said that Moe thought the angle of the trail foot coming into impact mirrored the trail hand.

Never heard that before.

I watched some Moe videos the other day and have been playing on that inspiration. Getting a wider base and playing into the left leg not over it as Moe liked to say. Makes the golf swing seem simpler to me.

The fireside chat videos are great for Moe psychology.
