Left Hand Golf Grip: Can it be too much in the fingers?
When I look at instruction books, I don't see too much instruction on how the club grip should lay on the left hand. I think Hogan was most precise:
In the photo, it appears that the club is aligned "diagonally" on the open left hand. That is, the end of the club grip is aligned over the palm and not the pinkie. I think that Hogan calls this area the heel pad of the hand. Whereas, at the other end of the hand, the club grip is aligned over the index finger, between the 1st and 2nd joint. This appears to be a diagonal alignment where the club is resting partly in the palm and partly in the fingers. Let's call this the Hogan grip.
What happens if the club rests more "squarely" in the left hand? That is, the club grip rests between the palm and the first joint of each finger? Let's call this the finger grip.
Is this a major issue? If yes, what issues/problems would the finger grip cause? Or if the other way around, what benefits would be derived from a finger grip?
