I've known there is a connection between Ben Hogan and Joe Norwood for as long as I've been involved with my Grandfather and his swing. Horton Smith was mentioned but never Francis Quimet and never a word about Bobby Jones other than Jones used to put his cigarette out to the right of his golf ball when he would play.
So it came as a very big surprise when I found a picture of Bobby Jones Grip along with his swing but it was his grip that immediately caught my eye because it is exactly (in looks) like the Joe Norwood Grip.
The analysis went so far as to say:
Jones employs a strong left hand grip and a relatively weak right hand grip, the palms are definitely not parallel (which is correct) and though Bobby's left hand is stronger than most players seen today, his right hand position mirrors those of today's top stars.
I will disagree about the pros of today playing a weak right hand.
My research on the great players of the past is important because at one time there was a standard set and many great players had such similar grips even though there swings we not similar. Bobby Jones and Ben Hogan have two separate methods of swinging yet they both played a strong left with a weak right. ( When Gramp's 1st changed my grip from strong right to weak right, I could not feel my hand. It was as if I had no hand at all and oh so uncomfortable but once I got it then my right became very strong in the hold even though the position is as weak.)
Why would you not want to play with a grip like Bobby Jones or Ben Hogan. The grip leads the swing and this grip is phenomenal. I've put together a few pictures for you.
