Golf Swing Instructional Tips; Two Ways To Assemble An Overlapping Grip

golf swing lesson tipsIn terms of some useful golf swing instructional tips, there are two ways to assemble an overlapping golf grip.

The first golf swing instructional tip about the correct way to assemble an overlapping grip relates to the original Vardon version.

The original Vardon overlapping grip requires the left hand to be positioned on the club handle in a conventional (diagonal) manner. It then requires the right hand to be formed on the club so that the little finger of the right hand overlaps the index finger of the left hand.

The grip is completed by docking the lifeline of the right hand squarely and securely on the left thumb.

The second golf swing tip about the proper manner in which to assume an overlapping grip relates to the modified Vardon version.

The modified Vardon overlapping grip requires the left hand to be positioned on the club handle in the same conventional  (diagonal) way as when  assembling the original lVardon version.

However, the right hand is gripped on the club handle in a slightly different manner.

When assembling the modified version, the right hand must be placed on the club so the little finger of the right hand is overlapped on the groove atop the index and middle of the left hand while the fingernail of the left-index finger is wedged into the web of the little and ring fingers of the right hand.

The lifeline of the right hand is then docked squarely and securely on the left thumb to complete the grip.

Which version is the better?

Although I personally prefer the modified Vardon overlapping grip to the original version, it truly comes down to the one with which you feel most comfortable, assuming you prefer an overlapping grip to that of the interlocking or baseball styles of grip.

The most critical step relating to each one is to dock the lifeline of the right hand squarely and securely on the left thumb to complete the grip.
