IMO sounds like it. Max D drives = thumb closer to center of disc/further from rim where control shots (mids/putters) = thump closer to rim/edge of disc.

Loose grip at start and more firm at the hit. Too tense of a grip before will not allow your tendons/arm to stay flexible for a good hit and generating the elusive "snap" lol.

^Exactly. This is how it was explained to me by another pro.
