I seriously doubt whether repeating a putting grip, which is a very individual thing, is a problem for many golfers.

And, if it were, what are the chances that this particular one would suit them?

 

Hate to be negative, but this is not going to work out for you.

Totally agree with you in regards to a putting grip, but just for funsies regarding the bold ...

 

When I was a teenager I played a lot of golf and had a good time doing it.  I was a baseball player, athletic enough to get by, and could break 90 on a good day.  I wasn't obsessed enough to bother with lessons, but I liked it enough to try and teach myself.  I took a golf class in college (to fill a PE requirement) and the clubs they had for us to use were 7-irons with those silly molded grips.  Not until I started playing with that thing did I have a clue how "wrong" my old grip was.  Left hand too weak, right hand too strong, both thumbs going straight down the shaft ... I was a mess.  Once I fixed that problem, I started playing a lot better (breaking 90 became the norm) and became even more obsessed with getting better.  Probably the single biggest breakthrough I ever had in my golfing career.

 

But again ... in regards to putting ... yeah, that's such an individual thing, doesn't seem like there'd be much market for a molded grip.
