Just switched to a Super Stroke 2.0. Amazing. I have struggled with putting and have switched putters more time than I can remember. 2 rounds with this and I am loving it. Puts are more on line. Distance control is great. Puts are dropping. $24 for a grip is a bit high but if you are struggling I would suggest giving one of the Super Strokes a go. Only time will tell if my putting continues.

I'm using a WINN AVS Jumbo grip ( http://www.golfgalaxy.com/winn-avs-jumbo-putter-grip---greyredstone/w12winnjumgryred/product ).

I'm only 2 rounds into using it so far and I have to say that I love it. The wider grip, for my larger than typical hands, gives me better feedback and takes some of the grip pressure and wrist out of play. I've been much more accurate from within 12', but longer putts are a bit more awkward for me right now.

When I got this grip, I cut my putter from 35" to 34" and combined with the larger grip, the club feels much lighter and I'm having some difficulty judging putts longer than 12' right now.

As far as the grip is concerned, I love it.

I just put a Superstroke 5.0 Fatso on my putter 2 weeks ago. So far I am putting much better. I tend not to grip it so tight now. Only problem I have with it is it doesn't fit in my tubes in my bag. It only fits outside in a umbrella sleeve/pocket.

I recently switched to a SuperStroke 3.0 and am very happy with it.  It fits my big hands better than the standard size grip did, and my touch/distance control has improved vastly (seemingly just the opposite experience that some SS users have reported).

I was torn between the superstrokes and Tiger Shark grips.

I ended up going for the Tiger Shark Jumbo and I really like it!

IMO try to find a proshop or golf store that has a few putters that are gripped with the grips you think you might like. I found that I wasn't a fan of hte superstrokes but loved the Tiger Shark.. it's the same manufacturer and they're made out of the same type of material.

I use an Edel putter grip, which I love because it's round. Best grip available as far as putters go.

In the past I've used the SuperStroke slim grips (the smallest one) and liked it and the PURE putter grips look like good ones if you wan't more of a traditional style grip.

I posted the other day saying I love my new WINN AVS Jumbo grip, but now I am not so sure. I am having a really hard time judging distance and power now. I really feel like I have no feel at all from outside of 10'. I am not sure if I am still in some form of "putter shock" after cutting down my putter 1" and doubling the size of the stock Odyssey grip, but this is definitely not working out.

I may need to look into a smaller grip, or a grip that has a similar pistol grip feel. Did any of you struggle a bit when you went to the oversized/jumbo grip size? From inside of 10' I am much more accurate that I was before, but the trade-off is that I am now no where near as accurate as I previously was from outside of 10'.

Given that I am still making more putts that I would previously have a tendency to miss, maybe I still just need more practice from outside of 10' to get used to the feel (at least this is what my common sense is telling me).

I had the exact opposite experience - my touch/distance on long/lag putts became much better, but I was pulling a lot of short ones.  It's definitely taking a little adaptation, but overall I like it a lot better than the standard-size putter grips I've always used in the past.

Superstroke 2.0. Just put one on my Odyssey #7 Metal X and am loving it. Bonus is that it still fits in the putter well on my cart bag.

hehe, i use a carry bag and it fits perfect. BTW when i ordered my iron and wedge grips i also ordered a slim 3.0 that is the one that is on my

Taylormade ghost tour putter right. Last night i played the men's competition, first time i had a hit with it. First few holes i struggled a bit getting to

feel the speed, but after 3-4 holes i was used to it.

I went to purchase this grip because i thought it would stop any wrist action in the putting stroke. I was so right with that. I still grip it as if it's a normal

grip, so i don't put to thumbs next to each other.

I was never so good from 10 feet in. think i holed about 90% off them. We where playing in heavy wind, and the putter really saved my round. ( normally the weakest part off my game )

I scored a 75 ( on a par 70 ) making 13 pars and 5 bogies. solid short game made this possible.

    • Copy & Pasting my own answer on a similar thread here.... I agree about borrowing or grabbing a CHEAP bag of random clubs at a garage sale to start with but when you're ready to invest a little dough into your own set, there are really three ways to do it... 1 - Get a cheap beginner set from Golfsmith or Dick's (or other online source). Advantages (if you go instore) are you get to see/swing them first, some assistance with selection, a good matched set to start learning the game with even if they are not fitted. I recently spent $169 on a set of Lynx Tigress clubs from Golfsmith for my wife...same set is currently listed on their site for $299. They are actually quite well made/designed and will likely be all she ever needs for her game. Dick's also had a Top Flite set in the same price range...she liked the color of the Lynx set better. ;) 2 - Roll the dice with an online "Clone" company like Giga, Diamond Tour, Pine Meadow, Hireko Golf, etc...You don't get to swing them first but you can use their online fitting systems to customize size/shaft/grip options a little more than just the standard options in a box. I used to have a Pine Meadow driver that I could hit ever bit as far as my brother-in-laws latest greatest. This is a good article about clone clubs http://planet-golf.com/what-are-clone-golf-clubs/ 3 - Used brand name stuff, one man's trash is literally my treasure. Try EBay, Club Finders (or other like websites) and buy a used set of matched irons of proper size/flex (used Ping Eye 2 iron sets go for $90-125 all day) and then piece together your other clubs individually. Again, you won't get to swing them first and you could get burned on a deal along the way...but if you take your time and shop smart, you can assemble a nice bag without breaking the bank this way too. I'm lucky here in Dallas to have a PGA store, a Golfsmith, a dozen Dick's Sports, and also Club Finders Golf (used golf specialist) all within 20 minutes of my house so when I started building a new bag I decided to take the #3 route...but I am considering finishing it off with a couple of new clone wedges rather than going with older/used wedges. Good luck whatever you decide.

    • Great time! Laughs, good conversation and three new good people that I met. Hacker James is a fun character and his daughter is also. She has good setup form and with more playing and practice she can really improve. She hit a few good long drives, out driving her father from the same tees. Hacker James was lagging very well, but nothing fell for him, but he took it like the golfer that he is. Shindig is a great guy and fun to play with and talk with. His golf game is impressive. Long drives, good short game and putter. He's pretty consistent. Consistently out drove me. Shindig was using Game Golf, I'm looking forward to seeing the results. It didn't seem to bother his game.   I got up at 3:00 am, left home around 4, got to the course about 6:30 from Palm Desert. I liked the course. it has a great practice area, broken up into the driving range and different short game areas. The layout of the course was good as well as the fairways and greens. I didn't like some of the sand bunkers with very little sand, but overall it's a good course to play. The employees were friendly as well.   I shot 97, 48 on the front, 49 on the back. I putted so badly.  I missed so many putts within 5 feet. I drove the ball well, not too many out of the fairway, and they were still playable. I got in the sand and out pretty good most of the time, but I missed one short putt after another, it was killing me or better yet I was killing myself. My lagging was hit and miss as well. When I got home I took five putters to the putting green and selected another putter for my next round.  I did hit one of those shots that make you say " Oh yea". It was a 5-wood from the fairway, oh so sweet.  Looking forward to the next outing and meeting other Sand Trap members.    
    • I've always been at best average at speed events like sprinting.  But when I hit the driver well it goes 250 to 260 yards.  I gained maybe 30 to 40 yards this year and I'll turn 59 this December.  I'm 5'11", 150 lbs.  I've had leukemia, high dosage chemo and a bone marrow transplant, 5 years ago.  I'm definately not an example of great health. Most 42 year old men should be able to hit it further than 180 yards. Yes, technic and just as important... swing fast.  You should post a swing video in the member swing section of this forum to get tips from some experts around here.
