Overlap vs Interlock vs Baseball Grips - Page 6

Re: Overlap vs Interlock vs Baseball Grips

I use the overlap. The interlock feels funny to me.

Re: Overlap vs Interlock vs Baseball Grips

I overlap, I use to interlock. I think the interlock restricts the freedom in my hands.

Re: Overlap vs Interlock vs Baseball Grips

2 years ago I went from interlock to overlap and never looked back. Interlock was beginning to hurt my fingers for some reason. Since I've been doing overlap everything just feels more comfortable. I don't have to squeeze the club as hard to make it feel secure in my hands. Stopped wearing a glove as well, feel like I don't need it with the overlap, unless it is really hot and I'm pouring sweat.

Re: Overlap vs Interlock vs Baseball Grips

My right hand seems much more active/strong using an interlock. My left with an overlap. In other words, I'm more of a "hitter" with an interlock, and a "swinger" with an overlap.

Of course, now someone will come along and say it works just the opposite for them.

Just use what works for you.

My general impression is significantly more amateurs use an interlock than pros. Does anyone know what percentage of pros use each grip?

Re: Overlap vs Interlock vs Baseball Grips

I use a baseball grip too and was told to swtich, but I couldn't even hit the hole I was on when I tried either overlap or interlock.
Anyone have advice on that?

Re: Overlap vs Interlock vs Baseball Grips

I use an interlock grip and i was just wondering, when the the pinky and index finger inter lock, do they interlock all the way, or just interlock half way?

Re: Overlap vs Interlock vs Baseball Grips

I use the interlock grip, but I'm not sure what you're talking about, although I'll take a guess. I don't interlock down to the point that the webbing of the fingers are pushed against each other. For me, the second knuckle on each finger line up with each other (and with all the other fingers on both hands). Is that what you're asking?

Re: Overlap vs Interlock vs Baseball Grips

I'm curious is to how many people use what grip? I myself use Inter-lock and have since day one. Also has anyone used both? and which do they like better? pro's con's?? I seen that Serigo has switched to inter-lock and the guys on tv said he would lose a little power because the swing is not so handsy? So if that's the case could you gain more power by switched to overlap? PS. figured I'd post this on here since the majority of us are on this Forum.

Re: Overlap vs Interlock vs Baseball Grips

I'm a 10-finger guy myself. I've tried both interlocking and overlapping but still feel most comfortable with the 10-finger. Yes, I know the pros/cons of the 10-finger grip, but it just works for me.

Re: Overlap vs Interlock vs Baseball Grips

I just changed to interlock and love it. I seem to have a bit more control and feel.

Re: Overlap vs Interlock vs Baseball Grips

I dont have to much experience, but the overlap feels most comfortable to me.

Re: Overlap vs Interlock vs Baseball Grips

I started off with baseball grip. Someone mentioned to try the overlap. It took about a week to get used to but now I can't play any other way. I have tried the interlock but my hands are way to small and it doesn't work for me.

Re: Overlap vs Interlock vs Baseball Grips

I switched to the overlap this winter. With the overlapping grip, my right hand would get too active and, after a bad round, I decided to change it. It took a little while to get used to, but I have seen an increase in distance and accuracy. I don't necessarily think the improvements came just from my grip, though. It has helped me relax my grip and my swing tempo has improved.

Wait..did you mean you switched to overlap from inter-lock?? or other way around? You had overlap & overlapping in that post??

Re: Overlap vs Interlock vs Baseball Grips

when I first started golf as a junior I used the interlocking grip. During high school I broke my wrists so the interlocking grip for some reason wouldn't work anymore. I switched to the overlap and things started to work again.

Re: Overlap vs Interlock vs Baseball Grips

Ive always used the my interlock and love it, tried overlap a few times but I seem to have lost distence because my club head speed was dropping 15 MPH
