The Golf Grip - First Step to a Proper Golf Swing

Proper golf grip A good golf grip is a necessity to playing your best golf. If you grip the club too tight, it can cause thin, weak shots that slice. An improper golf grip simply does not allow you to properly control your swing.

There are 3 basic golf grips.

An Overlapping Grip

The overlapping grip is the most commonly used golf grip. This grip is mostly used by male golfers and people with strong wrists and forearms. Using this grip, the little finger of the right hand lies on top of (overlaps) the index finger of the left hand.

A Baseball Grip

The baseball grip is widely used by beginning golfers, thosewith joint pain, arthritis and people with smaller hands andwrists. This grip is also referred to as the 10 finger grip andis commonly used by instructors when they teaching new students.

In this grip, the index finger of the left hand and the little finger of the right hand meet but do not overlap or interlock, pretty much like holding a baseball bat.

An Interlocking Grip

The interlocking grip is also used by many beginning golfers, who may have difficulty with the overlapping grip. In this grip the index finger of the left hand and the little finger of the right hand overlap each other and interlock.
