Thick/Fat Putter grips - Which one should I try?

6 posts in this topic

Guys I have completley changed my putting grip and stroke recently and begun using a new putter. (Odyssey Backstryke 2 - 2 ball). My putting has improved dramatically since these changes, but now I am thinking of scrapping the stock odyssey grip on my putter in favour of one of these chunky grips. Reason for the change is that my new grip has me overlapping both sets of fingers almost completley in-order to place both hands almost side by side and keep my thumbs parallel to eachother. So I thought If I got a thick grip that would keep my fingers out of the way and allow me to focus more on my stroke and the pace. If anyone has any grips they'd recommend I would greatly appreciate it, or even If anyone thinks I don't need to change the putter grip I'd like to hear what you think. Thanks.

I use a midsize pistol grip because my hands feel the most comfortable with this size.  That being said, I would recommend going to a golf store and putting with a variety of grips.  Try to find putters with the same length as yours.

I like a mid size pistol too. Just feels right. It had taken me a good year though to find the right putter grip

I had the super stroke 5.0. I putted with that for a full year. I just switched to the 3.0 this past weekend. I putted well with the larger grip but thought I lost a little feel and touch. I  had the 3.0 installed this past Saturday and practice around the living room just to get distance control on a uniform surface and man.... I was loving it! much better response back and feel. I will be taking it to league tonight to test out there. I make the league playoffs and switch my putter feel on the first round of playoffs... makes since right!

I have that exact same putter. It takes a bit of getting used to because of the funky shaft lean. I kinda really like the grip on it. It has a pleasing texture from the microbeads that I like, but it's still firm. Maybe play with different gripping methods and see if they feel better with the unique design of the club before switching grips. I use a standard interlocking grip like my full swing. The putter definitely gets a lot of comments on the course.

    • Mayb Spieth should spend more time over his ball, talked to his caddy more, slow things down a bit...........       (god help us no!)
    • I found  that I was making better contact  when I started my downswing with my arms.   BUT, on further review, and after watching a video of myself, I found the reason.   And the reason was, I  was ending my backswing by raising my arms.   I was becoming disconnected at the top of the back swing.   Thus, by starting my down swing with my arms, I was just getting re-connected and putting myself back into the position I should have been in at the top of my down swing.  Now, I am going to work on not raising my arms at the top of the back swing.   Then, I will be able to follow the advice in the post that started this thread.  Better yet, it's way past time for me to get some lessons from my local pro. 
    • To OP, your primary focus of all should be to learn to swing on plane first. Speed will come. It will come in boatloads. Consider the analogy of a car speeding in a NASCAR track. You can throttle the car when in the straight section of the track and get max speed but you have to slow down in the turn section, no matter how powerful the engine. Swinging 'on plane' with a proper sequence is like driving the car the straight section - you can maximize leverage and inertia for speed. Leveraging a club for speed until then is like trying to speed up at the turn - you will just go off track or will have to slow down to keep control. Of course swinging on plane is easier said then done. It is as closest to the 'holy grail' of golf you can get. Everybody, even experience players, are always chasing it. But swing even somewhat on plane will do wonders. Impact will dramatically improve too. You are new to the game. It is an exciting time with all kinds of new discoveries of what you can do with a golf club. THIS is the best time to get a camera and work with a good professional - do it NOW!!   
    • I played round 1 of 2 for the final local tournament of the year yesterday.  I struggled with my driver the entire day and managed to find only 1 of 14 fairways.  It was frustrating, to say the least.  

      On the plus side, I posted a 42 - 45 = 87 and I'm only 4 strokes back heading to the final round this morning.  

      I figure, if I can jump out to a quick start early... I have a chance.  I know I need to post something really low... like an 82 or something, to have a realistic opportunity to catch the leader... but I know I can do it on the course we're playing, so... I have my fingers crossed.  

      I'm about to head out in 45 minutes or so to get some practice time in prior to the round.  I'll update tomorrow.

    • @spider  Excellent review of the track!  It should give folks a pretty fair idea of the course and what it has to offer. In terms of playability, it holds up to any major championship courses. You are rewarded for accuracy, challenging at times, suited for golfers of all skill levels. Very affordable. Although we did not see any, at times there are lots of wild life on the course and some imported such as American Bison! There used to be several herds of sheep. The location is kind of out there, quiet, and off the beaten track, yet easily accessible. And "Oh Yeah", stellar 5W! (I carry one as well, Ben Hogan Speed Slot (Laminate) which I used frequently.  I am looking forward to the next event.@Shindig says he may try to put something together for the winter.
