The way we hold our hands on the club can really influence our swing. So here are some of my favorite "grip drills" that will help you work through several different swing issues I often see. Try them all out and have fun!
Two Finger Pinch
The Tee Hold

Great advice - I'll try some of these just to see how they feel.
Some really good info here, that goes beyond the predictable claptrap and platitudes of published golf "tips". I think these exercises can help us better understand what the club does during the swing and how the grip influences that. Personally I've been using an exaggerated split grip to help me to better understand my take-away, and to get the club more down the line (I tend to be across it) at the top.
