There is also a Neutral grip. This is determined by how you put your top hand on the club. Sean McTernan, a PGA professional at Brae Burn CC in Purchase, NY, explains in this video that all 3 are used by the top golfers in the game but also explains which one you should be using!
By looking down at your grip, see how many knuckles you can see. If you can only see one, you have a weak grip. If you can see two, you have a neutral grip. And if you can see three or four, you have a strong grip. The choice of which grip to use depends on your ball flight. If you have a tendency to hook, you want a weak grip. If you have a tendency to slice, you want a strong grip. And if you hit the ball fairly straight most of the time, use a neutral grip.
