Fat Putter Grips

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I was using a golf pride velvet pro putter grip, but I always had a problem with getting a good opposing palms grip when I putted. So I decided to change to a Golf Pride Jumbo Crown putter grip and although my putts roll straighter, I feel like I don't have any feel on the putt. I played two rounds and my putts are either short or really long. I'm sick of 3 putting and want to switch back.

How long do you guys give a grip before you give up on it? Anyone have experience with other fat putter grips like the tigershark?

Re: Fat Putter Grips

if its not for you then you generally will know, id give it a couple rounds at least to adjust but thats just me.. a fat grip is supposed to help with getting rid of hand/wrist movement in the stroke...

About two minutes on a practice green and I can tell if the grip is right for me or not. Sometimes even less.

I bought one of them that is real REAL BIG. I don't know why. Seen a pro using it. I could barely fit it in my bag. I used it 4 rounds and changed.

yeah i found them interesting until I borrowed one from the club house and took it to the practice green it took exactly 3 balls for me to shake my head and walk it back to the club house.

My uncle uses one of the Big Putter Grips, and he likes it quite a bit. His puts have been much better.

He said he had to get used to it for a long time before he was putting any better with it.

I tried out the tigershark. It was the first + size grip I've ever tried on a putter. It did quiet my hands a little bit, but the bigger size and softness really hurt distance control and feel for me. I switched to a Lamkin deep etched paddle after 3 rounds and some practice sessions, and I really like it.

i think ive seen those... they are crazy big I dont even know why they would use those? they are like 5 or 6 inches around. I would think it takes all feel out of it. whatever works tho

I use and love the giant Winn grip. To answer the question though, think you should know pretty much immediately.

Do you mean the 2Thumb putter grip? I have seen several tour players using it recently, i noticed 3 in one tournament i was watching on TV. Jiminez was one of them, though i don't think he uses it now. The commetator made a comment about them, saying these pros like the 2Thumb because they are getting a large surface area on their hand in contact with the club. I have tried the grip once on one of my friends putter (White Hot XG #7) and it was pretty sweet - though could have just been that i was just using something new. New Equipment Confidence.

I just put a Winn jumbo grip on my putter today. I decided on the jumbo grip to take my hand and wrist out of the short putts and I notice a big difference with short putts being very solid.

I tried lag putting and had no problems, myself.

I would practice lag putting with the jumbo grips and stick with it for at least 5 - 10 full rounds of 18 holes.

Re: Fat Putter Grips

I just put a Winn midsize grip on my putter last night. I figure it's in between the no distance feel fat putter grip and has less hand action than a standard size grip. I'll let you guys know how it works out...

Re: Fat Putter Grips

I haven't used one of the massive grips, but I really liked the slightly larger grip on a Nike OZ putter i tried. I'll be putting one of those on my putter when the grip wears out.

Re: Fat Putter Grips

Yeah, the midsize grip was a massive difference. It's wide enough to get both my thumbs on the front, but thin enough not to kill all the feel. It's been a huge difference in feel and my putting has improved significantly.
