I've played with a ten finger grip all my life but last few range sessions i tried out the interlocking. I seem to be striking the ball good but have a question about the interlocking fingers.  Do you guys press down with the right pinky and left index onto the opposing hand.  I see a lot of posts about people having sore pinky fingers etc but i feel no pressure whatsoever on my pinky as   I am putting no pressure whatsoever on the hands with the interlocking fingers .  In fact they are sticking up in air a little.  Basically i'm gripping club with mainly the last three fingers of my lead hand and  thumb and first three of right hand and thumb.  Am i doing this right or should I be putting more pressure on the grip with the interlocking fingers?

My interlocking fingers "float" a bit...so I'm interested to hear if there's any merit to locking them down a bit more but I'm the same as you, I feel I grip with the smallest three fingers of each hand...

No, I've never felt any pressure with the interlocking fingers.  Just like with a Vardon/overlap grip you wouldn't have pressure with the right (overlapping) pinky finger.

Pressure generally should stay fluid throughout your hands. As to your pinky not being sore, its not really an issue. A lot of it has to do with the size of your hands. Generally, people who have smaller hands, tend to grip with a ten finger, rather than interlocking and vice versa.

A good way to know your interlock is correct is, "left hands like your holding onto a motorcycle bar, right hands like a trigger finger".
Start with that, if you feel the need, you could make slight adjustments, but that always worked for me.
