For every swing problem, there is often a grip problem. Chances are, one of these great grip techniques will solve your swing.

IF YOU NEED MORE: Distance
Try an Overlap Grip, It Frees Up Your Wrists

Put your right pinkie on top of your left index finger. One less digit on the grip lets your wrists hinge like they've been treated with WD-40, creating more speed.

IF YOU NEED MORE: Accuracy
Try an Interlock grip. It Firms Up Your Wrists

Nestle your right pinkie between your left index and middle fingers. Connecting your hands like this limits hinge—and unwanted face rotation.

IF YOU NEED MORE Height
