In simplest terms, you should have your ‘lead’ hand on the top of the golf club and your trail hand just underneath it. The grip should run down your fingers and palm in your lead hand, and the palm of your trail hand should sit just on top of it.

Yes, you should use the same grip for all of your shots with the exception of putting. It is important to have a solid grip and one that returns the clubface to square whether you are putting, chipping, pitching, hitting bunker shots or making full swings with your woods or irons .
If you hit a lot of slices , you should “strengthen” your left-hand position on the club. Many people believe the hand positions should mirror each other, but when you take a strong left-hand grip , doing the same with the right will close your clubface too much at impact.
A strong grip can cure someone who swings over the top and/or struggles with slicing the ball. This particular grip promotes a more in-to-out swing as well as a club face that closes more through impact. This grip makes hitting shots that spin right to left much easier.

Like with his idol Jack Nicklaus, Woods employs an interlocking grip rather than the Vardon or overlapping style most tour pros use. As for Tiger Woods grip with the putter, it’s a conventional reverse-overlap style, right hand below the left, with both hands in a neutral or square position.
