Hey Al,
Did you get the pics from Lag?
They are on his system if you need them. We had an issue about transferring them as I have that big camera and never brought my USB cord to download pics and Lag's sytem didn't have a SD slot to insert the card.
Then after a lot of brainwork we took the card from my camera and put it into Lag's Camera and downloaded it -- another brain and we would have been lonely on that one.
Took a while to work it out!! Sometimes simple things are so hard.
Looking forward to the putting book- especially after seeing some of your long lag putting at Pasatiempo that day !!
I enjoyed meeting you and talking- wish we had more time but we shall catch up again soon. Thanks for signing my Barkow books !!

Hi Al,
I remember us talking in California last month and you mentioned something about the way Gene Sarazen used to grip the club.

I found this old rare book by Sarazen and it has a close up of his grip placement. I think you are totally correct about that left thumb position. The pics seem to show it way off the side of the grip

When I used to work with Henry Picard, he showed me that grip and said it was the original interlock grip. I found I could really get my elbows close together with that grip.

Bradley, I saw the grip first hand when Gene and I played some golf during the Shell Show years. As I think I mentioned to you, often I asked him where he got it and he wouldn't say. Finally I got it out of him when I asked if he got it from Alex Morrison, who he didn't like much. Sarazen said he got it from Francis Ouimet, and when you look back at pictures of players from that era you do see a lot of baseball type grips. Morrison got it from them, no doubt, but modified it with an extremely strong left had.
I'm here with John finishing up my Webzine Quarterly and getting my book up for customers. Hope you're working on your game and getting it ready to bring out where it belongs. Have good holidays.

Sorry to be so long getting back to you. Things got a little hectic for awhile, and I am still learning to connect with the internet in this way. You worked with Henry! Where? He was a very interesting man, lots of integrity, and knowledge of the game. I don't know what he meant by "original" interlock. He learned the grip from Alex Morrison, as you probably know, and Morrison, according to Gene Sarazen, probably got it from Francis Ouimet; that's who Sarazen learned the grip from. I mean specifically the left thumb off part. I remember Henry telling me that the left thumb off was the one thing he didn't buy from Morrison, his mentor, but when he injured the thumb his doctor told him that it was either take the thumb off or have an operation and Henry went for the thumb off. He went on to win a Masters and PGA.
Good to hear from you.
