Hey, Rick Kimbrell, have you ever tried the Double Overlap Grip? I had to go to it several years back because of pain in my fingers. Surprisingly, it actually freed up my swing and I started hitting the ball farther. Thought I was going to have to quit golfing before I tried this. From what I heard Jim Furyk is the only other guy that grips the club this way. It works for me. Don’t know exactly where your pain is hitting though so maybe it works, maybe not.
