WICHITA, Kan. — Take one look at his golf grip, and there must be something wrong with Josh Broadaway.
His crosshanded golf grip, where the right hand comes on first then followed by the left which is opposite of the traditional grip of left hand first, is turning heads at the Wichita Open.
There's now way he can swing the ball well, right?
"I tried to play with a normal grip and I couldn't get any air underneath it," says Broadaway with a laugh. "So I was like, the heck with it, I'm just going to keep doing it my way."
The cross handed method is odd, it's hard finding anyone else that swings that way, or makes any progress doing it. It grew from a lack of left handed clubs for the natural south paw. So he took his normal lefthanded baseball bat grip, grabbed some righthanded clubs and started learning the game.
