Just curious as to what type of putting grip you guys use. I personally use the reverse overlap with the occasional left hand low if I get bored .

On a side note, I was reading through some articles online and one of them talked about how the thumb on your right hand should be on the left side of the putter grip. Does anyone here use that method?

Right now I grip the putter like I grip my clubs.. 10 finger. Last year, I used the split grip and loved it, (Natalie Gulbis can get me to do just about anything), but playing on slow arse greens caused me to "hit" the putt more than stroke it. When ever I have trouble I always go back to the Hammy style of putting with an extended Ping I have. I am never scared to try anything.

YAY!

For ever it seems i used the same grip that i use for every shot...........
Well today that stopped. I remember seeing a video of guy throwing the ball underhand into the hole each time he tossed it.

So i tried the right hand low method (i guess thats what you call it). I was getting close and making putts i never would have made with the other grip.

I promised to really work on my short game this season. Mostly because it is the cheapest way to get better. My chipping has gotten really better. But till today putting hasnt changed much. I know its just one round but im more confident that with more practice i can really putt the ball with no issues. NO MORE 4 PUTTS!

YAY!

I do the split grip. Similar to Natalie Gulbis, just not soooo split. I stand with my feet a little more than shoulder width apart. I actually just switched to this a couple of months ago and I couldnt be happier. I feel way more comfortable over the 4-5 footers.

I use the same overlap grip that I use on the rest of my clubs. Except that on the putter I have my right index finger going down the shaft a little more, but it still wraps around a little.

I reverse overlap. It is by far the most comfortable putting grip i tried. I dont slide fingers down the shaft or grip, or anything like that. I hold the club firmly with my entire hand and curl my fingers underneath the grip. Its the best way, ive found, to secure the clubhead and keep wrist action to a minimum.
