I know even with the pics below you can't get specific with answers online. I am going to be talking to my Pro Shop guy this week. But I am wondering this. When I grip my ball before starting approach Should the ball be making contact with my full palm, Part of my palm or none of my palm. As you can see from the pics there is a gap between my palm and the ball. It rests on sort of the pads at the base of my fingers. I am wondering if I Should consider offsetting my thumb to get a little more hand in contact with the ball. Turns out my thumb is odd... my proximal joint is loose or double jointed it moves in very strange ways. My son's thumb is the same way. When we got his ball drilled the driller offset his thumb because of his wacky thumb. Just looking for some opinions on if my grip is good or if my more of my palm should be in contact with the ball
