Problems caused by interlock grip? - Page 2

post #19 of 21

I've used all of the Big Three at one time or another. Started overlapping - first golf book I ever read said to. Then tried baseball grip - good distance but major control problems. Went back to overlapping for 30 years.

 

About four years ago, I went to interlocking. Interlocking gives me more even grip pressure - and, I don't tear up golf gloves as fast.

 

My job contributes to grip pressure problems. I spend a lot of time on the computer doing heavy graphics mousing, and overuse my right hand. The right seems to relax a lot more using interlocking.

 

I think the key is find a grip you like and blend it into your golf swing. History lesson: Hogan recommended the overlapping, while Nicklaus used the interlocking. If I remember correctly, both guys won a lot of golf tournaments.

I too have tried all the grips. The Vardon grip for me wouldn't let my hands get equal pressure on the club. The baseball grip felt like I didn't have the "feel', so I went back to the interlocking grip, and haven't had any problems so far. All of my swing problems are caused by other things..:doh:

^^^There it is.

 

I can easily make equally bad swings with any kind of grip.
