Cross Handed Putting Grip - How???

I would like to try a cross handed putting grip, but I can't find anything that suggests exactly how to put the grip together.

How do you grip your putter cross handed? Do you overlap with a pinky? Do you overlap with an index finger? Do you use something like a 10 finger grip?

Years ago,I tried gripping my putter cross handed. I found the 10 finger, baseball grip the easier grip to use.

I used it for a few months, but eventually went back to my normal version of the Vardon grip. The same grip I use on all my clubs, on all shots, all the time. I call it my "k.i.s.s." grip.

I have putted crossed handed for 10+ years.  I am a right handed player. Mine is an interlock version where my right hand pointer finger is interlocked between my left hand ring and middle finger.  This keeps my shoulder almost level.  I find the split 10 finger grip makes my shoulders closed and tend to miss right...

When I switched to left hand low I tried different grips.  I ended up with sort of upside down Vardon grip.  But I suspect as several above suggested, just whatever works for you.

    • Speaking of 4:30 POP, if someone plays in five hours, that is fast, and if someone plays in three hours, that is slow. When you have had to deal with 6 hour rounds, 4:30 seems like a reasonable compromise. When I'm marshaling, it is not "recommended", it is the maximum allowed (in my  mind). 😁 In our case, there is some rhyme and reason to 4:30, but you'll have to follow me . . . .  Each of our first four sets of four holes has a par 3, a Par 5, and two Par 4s.  Bobby Clampett consulted on the course design, and the Par 3 are paced at 12 minutes, the Par 4s at 15 minutes, and the Par 5s at 18 minutes.  Figure that out and you will see the each set of four holes in 1 hour.  17 & 18 are Par 4s, so that's another 1/2 hour, and, Wallah!, 4:30. (PS:  I'm then only one left of the early employees who knows that.) It's really easy to marshal when you get that four-holes-an-hour ingrained in your brain, but it's amazing how many brains are not ingrainable. BTW, unless I'm really have a good round, if I'm stuck in a 4:30 round, I normally go in.  One day this year on the tenth tee I looked at the other guys and said, "Looks like rain.  Bye."  I'm sure it rained somewhere that day. How many of you have marshaled a tough course on a busy day?
    • If you have administrator access, you can see the entire history, but the rest of the world can't.  I have access as my club's handicap committee chair, and the pro shop does as well, but that's all as far as I know.  Rank and file golfers can't go any further back than the 12 month history available in the phone app.  Apparently I can look up the complete history for anyone, as long as I know their name.  
    • Last week had two birdies.  Not sure which was the better shot, but here goes. 1) PW from about 110 or so and put it pin high within about 3 to 4 feet and make the putt. 2) nGIR, probably around 5-10 yards from the green.  Chip in for birdie
    • Wow!  Thanks! I've been on Internet forum for 20 years, and I can count on one hand how many times I've seen someone actually compliment someone for their comments. So, kudos to you. 😁
    • Hmm, I could of swore several years back I was in the Golf shop and our pro pulled my history. Maybe the MAGA Assoc. is different? I can check the next time at the club. I could be mistaken, wouldn't be the first time...
