Hi Coach. Your tip about using the ring finger and pinky to secure the grip has helped me immensely, but I still notice my index finger seems to move too much, especially on bigger backswings. Should I concentrate on keeping the index finger stationary to improve control? Thanks.

Hi Thomas,

I am glad the tips on grip are helping.

I think the index finger being stable will also help with control and by keeping it in the lower position it will also allow more flexibility of the wrist and therefore more speed and spin.
