Re: Overlap vs Interlock vs Baseball Grips
So I'm going through a very big grip change. I'm very much self-taught, but when i had a quick 10 min lesson with a pga pro i happened to get partnered with he said I had a good looking swing and some potential, but I really needed to work on the grip.
So i practiced what he showed me, bought hogan's 5 lessons and have completely changed my grip. I now overlap rather than interlock, I'm in the fingers with the right hand as i should be, I'm now much more neutral with the left hand (I used to be super strong), and I'm seeing great results in terms of consistency.
My question is about the left hand. I can't always get comfortable with this hand on the club. I can't figure out how to lay my thumb on the shaft. If I put my thumb down intuitively after i grip the club with the rest of my fingers, feel like there is a large space by my palm and the grip (in the picture its the lifeline crease which has this pocket). If i grip it with my thumb extended down the shaft, it feels more like I am palming the club. Whats correct?
