The tightness of the grip on a scale of out of ten is recommended to be around a 3-4 to be able to create the right amount of power.
It is important to keep your body relaxed, mind focused and obtain feel for the club using your fingers, not your palms.
The three most popular grips that golfers use are the ten finger, interlock and overlap grip.

Short irons are recommended to be used with a narrower stance.
Keep your back straight, knees slightly bent and your weight on the balls of your feet.
