Golfing Women Learn To Grip The Golf Club

 Golfing women! How do you hold your golf clubs – Do you use the Overlapping, Interlocking or the Baseball grip way? It has been estimated that 85% of golfers (Golfing Women Included) do not grip the club correctly.  Sound advice is to use a light grip pressure. Gripping the club too tight could cause thin, weak shots that slice. A lighter grip gives you better wrist hinge which is a vital power source in the swing. Grip the club as if you were holding a baby bird in your hands, on a scale of 1 to 10 grip pressure should be around 4 or 5. 


Let's take a look at each of the three ways to hold your clubs so you can decide which method works best for you

  • Overlapping Grip

Overlap, take the little finger on the trailing hand and place it between the index and middle finger on the lead hand (for right-handed golfers, the lead hand is the left). The lead hand thumb should fit in the lifeline of the trailing hand.

  • Interlocking Grip

To use the Interlock grip, take the little finger on the trailing hand (the trailing hand for right-handed golfers is the right hand) and intertwine it with the index finger on the lead hand. The lead hand thumb should fit in the lifeline of the trailing hand.

  • Baseball Grip

To position your hands properly using a Ten Finger grip, start with a perfect lead hand grip, and then place the little finger of the trailing hand close against the index finger of the lead hand. Cover the lead hand thumb with the lifeline of the trailing hand.

I hope that all you golfing women found these golf grip tips useful and informative, and that they go some way to helping your golf game.  I suggest you first learn the basics from a good golf pro and take his advice on which grip to use.  Once you have a little experience then don't be afraid to try a different type of golf grip if you’re not satisfied with what you’re currently using.  For you more experienced golfing women you probably hold your lady golf clubs in a certain manner because you learned it like that. If you are happy with that and play well, keep it that way and don't try to change your grip technique.
