This grip is used by more golfers than any other type. If you're a right-handed golfer, grab the club with your left hand. Place the small finger of your right hand in the gap between the forefinger and the middle finger of your left hand. Make sure both thumbs are aligned down the shaft of the club. Your grip strength should be about a "5" on a scale of 1 to 10. That's the equivalent of a firm handshake with a business associate. The overlapping grip gets both hands to work together and is good for golfers who are looking for accuracy.
This the grip Jack Nicklaus used and it's excellent for hitting the ball with power. Take hold of the club with your left hand. Take the small finger of your right hand and intertwine it with the index finger of your left hand. Make sure both thumbs are aligned down the shaft. Grip the club at about a "5" on a scale of 1 to 10.
This is the grip a lot of new golfers start out with, but they often switch to the overlapping grip once they gain more experience. Some golfers, however, stick with it because they find it to be very comfortable. In the baseball grip, pick up the club as if it was a baseball bat. If you are a right-handed golfer, grab the shaft with both hands, using a baseball grip for each. Put the right hand directly below the left on the shaft. Your thumbs also should wrap around the shaft. Your hands work more independently with the baseball grip than they do with the other grips.
