You can start with either a conventional or right hand palm grip. You strengthen the grip (rotate it clockwise for a right handed golfer) until both thumbs are at 3 o'clock on the grip. In this position the right arm should be inline with the shaft, though Jerry says there is room here for individual differences (like him).

In this position when you 'cock' the wrists the club face will stay perpendicular to the target line. This is the only swing I know of where the face is perpendicular through the whole swing until after impact.

The swing should start with the weight on the back foot (so there is only one weight whift). The hands do not rotate about the arms. THey stay in plane with the front hand palm in (to you) and the back hand palm out.

The downswing is done as a "dual karate chop" (that is to say no rotation of the hands).

If there is any rotation before release you WILL go left.

I used this swing for a couple of months. It worked great at first but then I started to 'release' (my definition) too soon. Still I enjoyed seeing the 'other' side of the course for a while.

I showed this technique to a friend who rarely plays and never practices. He adopeted to it quickly and hit a pure 3 iron 200 yds on one shot. I think this is easier the newer you are to golf because you are not used to the releasing/rotational movements.

To stop going left I would up 'weakening' my grip and before I knew it I was back at a NG grip.
