First Tee Fundamentals: Hold
The hold, or grip, is often regarded as one of the most important parts of your setup. After all, your hands are what connect you to the club. Like a fingerprint, the way you place your hands is one of the most unique things about your golf game. Just about everyone has a different way of gripping it, and many different variations have been used with success (even cross-handed!)
There are some principles that you can apply when determining where, and in what way, you should place your hands. Here is a small sample:
Baseball grip: All ten fingers are wrapped around the club. This is good for juniors or those with small hands. It gives you the most feeling of control.
Interlocking: The pinky of the lowest hand on the club interlocks with the index finger of the highest hand on the club. A medium feeling of control designed for those with medium-sized hands.
Overlapping: The pinky on your bottom hand lays on top of the index and middle finger of the top hand. For those with large hands who can handle a "looser" feeling grip.
Try each one to determine what works best for you...
