Grip Visuals: How do you hold the club?

It's very hard to hit a golf shot if you're not holding the club correctly, today we're going to take a look at the 3 main grips and how to use them.


Overlapping Grip: Also known as the Vardon Grip, named after golf great Harry Vardon. The most commonly used grip in golf! Can be identified by the pinky of the dominant hand laying on top of the index finger of the secondary hand.


Interlocking Grip: The second most used grip made famous by players like Tiger Woods is a very secure grip but can cause finger pain for some people, typically used by players with smaller hands. Can be identified by interlocking the pinky of the dominant hand and the index finger of the secondary hand.



Ten-Finger Grip: The most natural of all the grips, typically a good grip for beginners! This grip is identified by all ten fingers being in contact with the club; hence the name. It's important to note that this is NOT a split grip, the pinky of your dominant hand and the index finger of the secondary must be touching in order to execute this grip.
