Golf Terminology - 'V'
Vardon grip - (aka: "overlap grip", "overlapping grip") named after historic player Harry Vardon who introduced the grip to the golfing public. The pinky of the lower hand rests on the index finger or between the index finger and the middle finger of the upper hand. This is probably the most popular grip in use today. Example: "It is sometimes difficult for players with smaller hands to be comfortable using the Vardon grip."
