So this evening I finally got a chance to hit a field and the course and to try out my newly learned, correctly performed, four-finger power grip. Although, I still need to figure out my angles with the new grip, I easily saw a 50+ foot increase on my distance drives and the throws felt great. (and I heard my snap).
I came up just short on a 450' hole, and was pin high on a 475' hole a little later. Both of these drives were with a DX Wraith 10-12' off the ground -- I threw with hyzer, they flipped up and glided too far right on me before fading, so I was way off line but the distance was there.
The added snap and power behind my throw is going to force me to add more hyzer angle at my release to compensate. Another hour or so of field practice should help me work all the kinks out. This evening I actually felt like I was drving as far as I should be.
Thanks, Blake. Your grip article and your posts on here have been invaluable.
