something i have been wondering on grip?

Recommended Posts

this is jsut me being new but do you use the same grip on your putter than you do on your irons or driver?

i use the interlocking grip but to me it seems to feel more comfortable to use more of a baseball style grip on my putter.

what are your alls opinions on this?

Use whatever works for you. I got an interlocking grip with most clubs, but more of an overlap with the putter. Think I modeled it somewhat after Tiger's putting grip.

I use overlap for all my shots but I switch to baseball grip for putting and some chips when I'm close to the green

Same goes for me. I saw it in his book, "Tiger Woods: How I Play Golf." I used to interlock but made the switch and have been doing it since. I find my feel is better doing that.

All my grips have an overlapping grip, pretty much the varden grip. I place the putter more in the palm of my left hand for putting and fingers for all other shots.

Interlocking on everything. I have a really weak grip on the putter though. I have been wanting to try variations on my putting grip though.

Exact same here. I cut down a 17" belly putter grip to put on my Cleveland Classic, sort of a homemade SuperStroke since at the time there was no mid size from them and  I had the Winn navy/red laying around.

10 finger, club running through both palms. I do have a bad habit of letting my right hand's index finger stretch downward onto the steel shaft of the putter. I've used that damn finger for years and every time I try to wrap it around the grip, I feel too "wristy".

So, right now, I would say my grip is a unique, 10 finger F'd up grip that you shouldn't attempt lol.

    • Found this link looking at Tiger and his new swing. Michael Jordan makes some very good points about why the term "GOAT" doesn't make sense. Smart guy.
    • I think we were.  Yes, this is a GREAT feature, long overdue Some people even make Snaps (snapchat) while driving.   
    • Short of the year for me yesterday.

      Hit my driver towards a crossbunker on the rigth on a Par 4 after making birdie on the previous hole (Par 5). When I walk to the ball i saw that the ball climbed the rigth wall of the bunker and stayed there, 50cm from the wall. I had 2 options, make my stance on the bunker and hit the ball like a baseball player or stand over the wall and grip the club from the shaft halfway to the head, like it was a club for a 5 year old player. I knew that i was facing to give back the birdie on the previous hole.

      I choose the 2nd option, take an 8 iron from 120 yards and hit it as hard as I could towards the green. The flag was short left, with a bunker guarding the middle/rigth portion of the green. 
      I make a perfect contact and the ball took a really low ball fligth towards the flag. Landed 30 yards on the fairway shorter to the flag and start rolling until I saw it disapear on the cup. Yeah!! Eagle!! :D. Raised my arms before it drops, and my playing partners start clapping, they wheren´t close to me to celebrate. A couple of high 5 closer to the green and big satisfaction when i pull it out of the hole. 3 under in 2 holes. Yes, it was luck that the ball went in but i made an amazing recovery shot.   
    • I think pondering the answer is its own punch line....
    • @ANDY_UK Interesting argument, but neither you nor the person that wrote the article has answered my question. If the ball is lost where do you drop? Obviously you don't have any idea where your ball went so how do you equitably drop in a place that does not give you an advantage? It could have hit a tree and gone backwards, it could have taken a horrible bounce and be well right or left of the fairway or green. You don't know so how could you possibly drop anywhere but from where you originally hit your shot? For example you're playing a match, one person hits their ball up against a tree, another person hits their ball, it hits something and goes off never to be seen again. The player who found their ball has to chip out backwards back to the fairway, the player with the lost ball just gets to drop where ever and add a stroke? Technically the player with the lost ball could be in better position after dropping and they both lie 2. Thats just wrong IMHO
