In most discussions of the golf grip excessive attention is paid to how many knuckles should be visible or which eyeball the Vs should point at, and too little to how the fingers should actually be placed on the shaft. Take the so-called trigger finger of the right hand, for instance. Many players, more through carelessness than by design, put their right hand on the club as if they were actually pulling a trigger. In other words, the trigger finger is stretched away from the middle finger (right). To my way of thinking, this is a mistake. A good grip has the hands working together; they are not two separate entities fighting for control of the club. The more space the hands take up, the more difficult it will be for them to work together. The less space, the more control they will be able to exercise. So resist the temptation to reach for a trigger the next time you grip a club. Keep all of your fingers snugly together.
