I've always tried to grip the club 'in my fingers' but I've got small hands (footjoy size small gents glove) so a feeling of finger tip pressure is quite elusive.

What are your thoughts about smaller/thinner grips? Perhaps even ladies grips - I think Nicklaus used ladies grips in the early years. IIRC, Moe had jumbo-style grips, but may have had big hands, not sure.

Also, what are your thoughts on a 'reminder' ridge, either built into the grip, or added when fitting the grip (wire a la Hogan or similar)?

Will try this too - I never have heard of this or thought of it before, Mr Hogans fundamentals doesn't describe it that way but thats maybe me missing it like so many other things we see in our own way.

Martin,

Thanks

I just tried your suggestions and and they seem to correct the looseness I have felt in my grip (I will hit balls today and let you know). I forgot about the thumb pressure against the base of the index finger. I think Hogan talked about the right hand this way in 5 lessons as well. Your video's are very informative. Do you ever do clinics on the westcoast of the U.S. ?

Thanks again

Wrt the heel pad wearing out. I would suggest that you were gripping with pressure deep in the fingers as opposed to the fingertips.

I feel a really strong pressure in the tips of my fingers, and the butt pad of the index finger of the right hand. Also the thumbs are pressuring the side of the hand near the base of the index finger. I would rate this pressure an 8 or 9 out of ten. It leaves the palms very BIG and the wrists and forearms feel hollow.

Martin,

Follow up question when what is the amount of pressure you suggest with the fingers of right & left hand 1-10 10 being the most. When i do this I feel 0 tension in my palms and wrists. My current grip with the finger tips touching the palm I feel tension in the palms and wrist. Not sure if this is correct

Thanks again

Martin,

I went from a weak left hand grip to a stronger left hand 2 years ago. I hit the balls more solidly but I continue to wear a hole on the heel pad of the left hand. You do not address this my question is that caused by not enough pressure with the last 3 fingers of the left hand. Any suggestion would be appreciated. I can feel the grip moving sometimes in my left hand
