Interlocking vs overlapping - Page 2

post #19 of 26

I prefer interlock. I started out interlocking but switched to overlap for about two years before going back to interlock. My problem is that I have big palms and little babby fingers. The club slipped out of my hand too much with the overlap. 

 

It really boils down to comfort, like everyone else was saying.

I'm kind of the reverse of this. I started with and overlap grip and used that for a long time. However, I needed to make some grip changes (mine was far to strong) but I found it hard to make those changes with an overlap grip so I changed to interlock… I've tried overlap a few times since then and it just feels weird.

With my driver and 3 wood, I seem to hit the ball way more consistently using overlap. But when hitting my irons, I'm more consistent using interlock.  But I dont like the idea of switching back and forth on the course... Any thoughts?

Jack Nicklaus (I think) said something to the effect of interlock being better for smallish hands, like his. I've found it works for me as well; I have a large palm, but short fingers, and interlocking feels a lot more comfortable. 


But, then again, most pros use overlap. 

 

I would suggest using the one that feels the most comfortable.

I recently, the past two months switched to interlocking. I find it allows me to keep my right hand from getting to strong. I find it to be more secure feeling.

Interesting. For me my right hand wants to slide over to the strong side whenever I try interlock.
