Some professional golfers do, and others let their club face and swing path do it. When players want to hit a fade, if they are right handed, they will usually move their right thumb further left, and for a draw they would move their right thumb further right.

The best pros are all sponsored by one of the bowling-ball companies. Because all balls are different as are all bowling centers, the best pros own one of every ball their manufacturer sells.

If you think that you want to start playing tennis on a regular basis, then you also need to make sure that you learn the three major tennis grips. You will not be able to hit the ball over the net if you do not know how to properly handle a tennis racket, so it is important to learn these fundamentals of the game. Once you know how to handle a racket, you will be able to hit the ball more efficiently and with more power. Focusing on the basics is always extremely important when you take up a new sport, so make sure that you learn the following three grips.The Eastern GripThe first tennis grip that you should take a look at is the Eastern grip. This is the type of grip that feels natural to most of the people who pick up a racket for the first time, so it is also the most popular grip used today. To use this grip, you will basically need to shake hands with the racket and make sure that the end of your hand is at the end of the handle. You should be able to easily see your thumb if you are using this grip.The Continental GripThe Continental grip is the option used by most pros, but it will not feel natural right away. To use this grip on the court, start with an Eastern grip and then rotate the racket clockwise until your thumb and finger are sitting on the edge of the right side of the handle. You should also bread your fingers out a bit with this grip.The Western GripThe Western grip is what you can switch to after you have become a tennis pro. You can start with an Eastern grip for this grip as well, and then main change you will need to make once you are in an Eastern grip is to turn the racket counter-clockwise. You should continue to turn the racket until the V shape of your thumb and pointer finger is pointing to the right.

Pros almost always use a 16 pound bowling ball. In rare cases, when a pro has an injury to their wrist or arm/shoulder, they will use a 15 pound ball.

The standard golf grip is made of a rubber compound. Another type is a soft grip (Winn) which has a felt base layer with a polymer compound overlay. The third type is a cord grip, this is the same as the rubber grip, but it has string running through it, Tiger Woods uses a cord grip, as do many pros.
