Bad Grip = Might have dislocated my left ring finger (3rd knuckle)

Recommended Posts

Folks...

Seems like I dislocated my 3rd knuckle on my left ring finger. I can move it, but I have a knot on it. I believe its completely related to my grip.

I have been reading and got my brain completely sideways on the proper grip.

Thoughts?

Impossible to say without seeing pictures. I'm fairly certain you'd know if you dislocated your finger, though, no???

Interlock or Overlap? I had issues with interlock when I started (felt like I was bruising) and switched to overlap, no issues since. Kinda depends on what kind of hands you have.

*Updated*

I am using the Vardon grip. What is happening is that upon release my trail hand (left hand) is getting a lot of action right at that particular knuckle. Also my ring finger (left side) is getting calluoused.

Too much pressure in those two fingers?
