As you know Remington has recently posted a suggestion to move the Right hand position close to the HSS position.

A number of comments on this forum including myself indicate that this grip suggestion has met with very good results.

The problem I have is that with a three wood and driver I have a strong tendency to hook. An attempt to stop this by using the "karate" chop feeling results in a severe loss of distance. Jack K in the "Ask The Professor" section of the SciGolf forum says that NG and Jerry Heard have misinterpreted his teachings. He states clearly that rotation of the forearms is essential to good distance.

Ok, so we want to rotate but we don't want to loose the underhand toss/skipping stones feeling.

What are your thoughts?
