Most junior golfers will need to use a slightly stronger grip (“V’s” pointing towards the right eye) to properly support the club at the top of their back swing.  Younger beginners are better off using the “ten-finger”, or baseball grip.  Older beginners and juniors with more experience will find an interlock or overlap grip more effective.  For the right-handed golfer, the heel of his left hand should be placed on the club grip just below the butt (or end) of the grip.
