Cliff Notes
-In regards to grip pressure, do not confuse a light grip for a loose grip. A light grip is good, a loose grip is bad.

-When strengthening or weakening your grip, do not twist your hands. Instead, open or close the club face then grip the club.

-Imagine gripping a samurai sword with the blade in your fingers. You have to make a swing without cutting your fingers. This will give you an image for the correct pressure and consistency to have.

-Interlock grip is best for control, baseball grip is best for distance and overlap is a compromise of both.
