I'm now on my second foray using the LHL putting grip. This technique was first proposed to me at the 2018 PNW Meet-up. I liked it at first but it always felt awkward and I soon abandoned it. My putting prowess has never been terrible but it's never been stellar either. Watching Chris @Thin2winput on a putting show at our recent meet-up, and using that grip, I once again made the switch. Now having used it for about 20 rounds, I'm committed to making it my standard. I most definitely have better aim point to intended target and have seen an improvement in putts made inside of 5 feet. Even more, those pesky 1 to 2 foot score eating putts feel much less pensive to me. I'm still playing around a bit with hand positions and have tried extending my index finger (lead and trail) down shaft and also slightly wrapped. I've been looking at numerous on-line videos/articles and see there are many permutations being used. Establishing something that feels natural is my current task. Contrary to what this article suggests, this putting grip seems not to have taken the golfing world by storm.
