Place your right hand on the shaft. Open up your left hand and place it at an angle from the base of the pinky to the second knuckle of the index finger. Both the pad of your thumb and the heal pad need to be on top of the club to create leverage.
Now, slide your right hand down the shaft of the club at an angle. When you reach your other hand, you can choose either the overlapping grip or the inter- locking grip.
Looking at it from the front, the thumb is on the right, center line of the shaft. The three pads work together as one: the pad of left hand, the pad of left thumb, and the pad of right thumb.
