Vardon, interlocking or 10-finger. Strong, weak or neutral. For every Tour pro, the seemingly simple act of holding a golf club contains a story.
Yes, I've heard the quote about holding the club as if it were a bird. That bird would be strangled for sure with my grip. Oh, heck yeah. See, my knuckles go white. Even my putting grip is tight tight enough to wear out the grip in places. I've putted with a glove forever, but I've worn putter grips all the way down to the metal. That's a little weird.
