    Jack didn’t do too badly with his interlocking grip now did he?

    Then, how to keep the dominant hand light on the grip – in my case RH. I believe it was Snead that said one should be holding a bird with the grip. I discovered this just the other day (it only took about 40 something years – never too late,eh).

    Once the hands are in place, push the third finger against the left index finger. The right hand middle, index, and thumb fingers will relax more. And, this sets the center of rotation for the hand set and release.

    Once I do that I don’t have to worry about getting into “the death grip” on the club – Ever!

    Thanks Shawn. Good differentiation between proper interlocking and improper interlocking. Now for the critique — you can’t seem to set that camera far enough away. Considering the subject you’re talking about, your camera should be right on top of you and a view of your hands. Or, maybe you can move closer.

    The first two posts didn’t view the video apparently. He shows the correct way to set your hands in an interlocking grip. Very informative.

    Interlocking grip didn’t do Woods any harm. Is this a joke ?

      Or how bout the other GOAT, Jack Nicklaus, who also interlocked???

      Or Nicklaus, Kite, Wie, McIlroy, or Furyk(Double interlock)Hogan, Mickelson, and The King among many others. To me I just look at the greatest of all time and decide if it’s good enough for him It’s plenty good enough for me. I’ve been using it for over 55 yrs, longer than many online teachers have been alive.

      Apparently he gets a lot of students that interlock the hands too far. This video is about how to interlock properly, not don’t do the interlock grip. Did you watch it?

      Like the use of the yard stick as a feel tool.
