Check the 'V' Position
V position of hands in the golf grip

Make sure the thumb-forefinger V of your trailing hand is parallel to that of your top hand, and points back to the 1 o'clock position.

Make sure that the "V" formed by the thumb and forefinger of your trailing (bottom) hand points toward your back ear/shoulder area (the 1 o'clock position). This "V" should be parallel to the "V" on your lead hand (as illustrated by the double arrows in the photo).
