Do Most professional golfers interlock or overlap?
With grip selection being a mix of swing mechanics and player preference, we tend to see pro golfers with both types of golf grips. Professional golfers will do whatever is necessary to hit consistent shots, and both the interlock and overlap golf grips will allow for that.
Which pros use overlap grip?
Golfers like Arnold Palmer and Ben Hogan both used and taught the overlap grip. One of the commonalities between these two players is that they had larger, stronger hands, making the overlap grip a more natural grip for them.
Which pros use interlock grip?
Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus used the interlocking grip. With the number of wins between these two golfers, the interlock grip certainly gets a lot of credit. On the PGA Tour today, you will see a mix of interlock and overlap.
Are there other common grips used by pro golfers?
It’s rare to see a professional with a ten finger grip, although it has happened. Grip style is usually just the overlap or interlock. On the putting green, however, you will see things like the reverse overlap, claw grip, hammer grip, cross-handed grip, and more.
Should you interlock or overlap grip?
Golfers with small hands should use the interlock grip; large hands should use the overlap grip. In addition, golfers with grip pressure issues will benefit from the overlap grip as it tends to create a more natural and smoother swing with less pressure overall.
I would recommend trying both grips on the driving range to see which one is best suited for your game. The problem with changing the grip while on the course is that your entire swing will feel slightly different, and it’s best to avoid that.
