Depends on how hard you hold.

Believe one hand is enough to hold the bird, just wondering if you guys hold it harder on left or right hand? Or both equally hard? What a Face

i read somewhere before....

grip ur club and hold it such that the shaft is perpendicular to the ground (pointing to the sky) --> thats too light.

hold the club such that the shaft is parallel to the ground, thats too hard.

hold the club at a 45deg angle, that should be the right grip pressure.

2 cents..

base on experience,
you should hold the shaft such that the clubs head lies on it's natural angle (read club head base flat on the ground). this is where fitting comes as ppl height are different and club length are generally the same. You can compensate by bending or standing more upright, but the easiest is to get it setup properly for your height & arm's length.

45 degree with the club head tilted up / down will spell disaster, specially when you are suppose to grip it light. the first touching point will be your heel or toe of the club which will make the club face close / open and not square. And on the course you will also need to take into account the lie of the ball and the slope of the fairway you're hitting from.

Have fun.
