I started playing golf with an interlock grip.  When I was playing very occasional rounds I subconsciously started using an overlap grip.  Once I started playing more again a few years ago I went back to an interlock grip without thinking about it.  I believe it is because I can grip lighter with an interlock grip.

Putting grip is 10 fingers with both index fingers pointed straight down the grip.

Interlock for me as I have smaller hands.  Tried overlock but it just feels like my hands come apart during the swing sequence.

I always was an interlock player. I didn't play for a few years and when I was regrooving my swing, decided I found it easier hitting overlap. I got my swing back in shape and decided I like the feel  and consistency (for me anyway) of the interlocking grip. It allows my right hand to get a little further down on the club and sit better in my fingers versus getting a little palmy with the overlap.

Neither, it's the baseball grip for me.  I have tried interlocking and overlapping, but not for more than a couple of swings.  It just feels too weird to me, and the baseball grip just feels natural.

Interlock. Always has been and always will be. I've experimented briefly with other grips on the driving range and none of them worked very well.
