I posted earlier today my concern that this strong a grip would cause pull shots. Please excuse me. I was wrong. In fact your grip suggestion makes it easy to execute the "skipping stone" sensation with the right arm. Rotation happens and contributes to power but without conscious thought. Taking your suggestions was brilliant at the driving range. I'll take it to the course tomorrow.
Thanks Tons for your ideas!
