Grip Question--- Vardon, Interlock, 10 Finger

7 posts in this topic

I am curious what everyone uses.  I broke the pinky finger on my right hand when I was 10.  That finger is pretty funky.

Consequently, I have tried and played successfully with every style of grip out there, but that pinky causes me problems, so my 'go to' grip is the 10 finger with thumbs running down the shaft, not a true baseball grip.

The 10 finger is the only grip that allows me to feel in control of the club 100% of the time.  Because of my pinky when I use the Vardon or Interlock I tend to vise grip with the little finger because I cannot feel it otherwise.

Just looking for feedback.  Had a Dr buddy tell me one time to cut the pinky off, lol.

I use the Vardon.  I find that it gives me the most control.  Whatever works though.  If you pinky makes it difficult to use the interlock or Vardon, theres nothing wrong with the 10-finger.

I use the 10 finger grip as well, I have experimented using other grips but I always come back to the 10 finger. It just seems the most comfortable to me and I feel like I have the most control with it.

The interlock feels the most secure to me, so that's what I've always preferred.

I like the Interlock because I like the feel of the hands being "locked" together. I

I have used all 3 at one time or another over 40 years, but predominantly the Vardon. I used ten finger as kid starting out. I used interlocking for a while in my teens and twenties-cause that's what Nicklaus used--but switched over in my late twenties to the Vardon and have pretty much stayed there. There have been a couple of times when I had the laterals that I switched to 10 finger for a short period of time, but fortunately that has been a long time ago.

Thanks for the input.  It's funny, I will switch grips during a round sometimes.  I almost always use the Vardon for greenside bunker shots and interlock for flop shots.

Just drives me crazy not being able to find one comfortable grip and sticky with it.
