    Played almost all this season with the interlocking grip. After playing my entire "golf life" with the 10-finger grip, it was quite a change. Yes. I know it sounds wrong, but the change to an interlock grip cured my fade/slice that had haunted me for years. The interlock has me hitting either a straight ball or a slight draw. The change away from the cut/fade is what has gained me considerable distance this season. Well, that and going to a shorter shaft in the driver where I hit 90% of my fairways. I really think I was trying too hard, with the 10-finger grip, to close the clubface. That effort resulted in an out-to-in swing, giving me the fade/slice tendency.
    Some have suggested a potential issue with finger/knuckle stress with the overlap grip. I've had none... so far.

    I actually had to go back and re-read this post, including my own original posting. Reason for this was more so outta boredom, but also because when playing around with my kids and our clubs downstairs, all three use a ten finger grip of some variation or form. I started playing around with it as well, man is it comfortable and just natural feeling...

    I’m not a full convert yet, but I just may play around with it a little more.
