    Cool Golf Grip - Overlap vs. Interlock vs. Ten Finger

    Which grip do you use and why?

    I grew up using interlock because I was taught that way. Now I overlap, feels more comfortable and seems like I release the club better/easier through the shot. Seems like most people I run into interlock but overall I'm guessing it's probably 50/50.

    I can't do the interlock. Just doesn't work for me, and doesn't feel comfortable. Ten finger for me. Just a little better than bogie golf.

    Re: Golf Grip - Overlap vs. Interlock vs. Ten Finger

    I changed from ten finger to overlap and it made it feel like I had a lot more control over the club. Interlock feels completely foreign to me.

    Re: Golf Grip - Overlap vs. Interlock vs. Ten Finger

    I started playing with the ten finger and then moved to the interlock. The interlock seems to help me keep the club face closed for some reason.

    Same for me. I definitely had problems pushing shots and switching to interlock helped me get rid of that problem.

    Re: Golf Grip - Overlap vs. Interlock vs. Ten Finger

    When I first started playing I was using a 10 finger but over the years have gone to an overlap. The interlock just isn't comfortable for me at all.

    Re: Golf Grip - Overlap vs. Interlock vs. Ten Finger

    I guess I didn't think anyone used 10 finger...that really played the game, anyway.

    I was taught interlock, but switched to overlap almost immediately as I seemed to have better control. Have never look back.

    Re: Golf Grip - Overlap vs. Interlock vs. Ten Finger

    Interlock except for short wedge shots then it's overlap. I started with interlock so I just never changed.


    It's all snark from here on out

    God gave you 10 fingers for a reason. Put them all on the club!
    That said, I'm an awful golfer.

    Interlock, it keeps my hands from separating.

    I interlock, but one of the best golfer I know (well at least the best player I know who I play with on a semi-regular basis) uses the 10 finger grip. I certainly don't understand it, as I've always seen it as a "slicer's grip", but his results speak for themselves.
