Almost One Year of the Overlap Golf Grip

In about a month it’ll have been a full year since I switched how I grip a golf club. It was a rough go when I first switched and then I started this summer forgetting that I had switched. I’m completely accustomed to it now though and loving it. I haven’t had any finger issues and don’t get blisters on really humid days like I’d occasionally get with the previous grip.

Seems to be paying off in my scoring and consistency as well. Though there are some other factors in play there. Last year everyone in our group who had been playing from the blue tees moved up to white and while it’s not a huge difference, it is still a difference. Over the last month or so I’m really getting comfortable with a shorter, slower, and more controlled swing. It’s giving me consistency I’ve been lacking for years, so I haven’t been spraying the ball all over the course.

Now I need to figure out how to get the ball to the hole when I putt!
