What's your putting grip?  

85 members have voted

  1. 1. What grip do you use when putting? (feel free to elaborate below as well)

    • Traditional/dominant hand low
    • Non dominant hand low (Left for righties/right for lefties)
    • Pencil/Paintbrush/Claw
    • Something else
    • I putt opposite of what I swing the club (putt lefty/swing righty or vice-versa)
      0

Curious what type of grips are most popular when putting;

 

feel free to elaborate (or not) on why you chose the grip you use and if you are considering switching or just switched for a particular reason.

I got something to say then I'm gonna say it.

I just got a new counterbalanced putter and am considering switching to either pencil or left hand low in order to keep my shoulders square to the target better.

I use a standard dominant hand low grip. Tried the claw, left hand low, etc.. But never got comfortable with them.

I switched to non-dominate hand low this year and have had good success with it.  Feel like I have more control of the stroke and it didn't take long to get used to it where now it feels very natural.

Traditional right (dominant) hand low with a SuperStroke Slim 3.0.  I have putted better than ever since putting that grip on last fall.

Traditional for me. I attempted a new stance, like Arnie's but too many 3 putts so I shelved it after 3 rounds

I changed to a REAL strong right hand placement on the grip with my thumb behind the grip. I am much more accurate!!!

I've always been a little streaky with the putter and constantly have to reinvent my putting method. 

I had always used an interlock grip with traditional hand low but decided to give crosshanded a shot last year. It was uncomfortable for less than a week before it took.

 

So now I'm left hand low with an interlock grip. Still a bit streaky as a putter but less so. When its on, I feel like I can make most anything and when its off I can still somewhat keep it around the hole.

Crosshand has never felt right to me even as a right handed golfer who is left handed. I used to be a double interlock and putted well for a long time, then went to single interlock,and now I hold it with the pinky overlap, just like my clubs. Been rolling it better

On the search for something different. I use a fairly traditional type grip. I look like Arnie when I putt. It works, but it kills my back. Knees close, hunched over like this photo of the King. Real compact.

I'm not sure what it's called, but I hold my club like normal with my left hand (left handed player) and my right index and middle fingers are then wrapped around the fingers of my left hand.

There's nothing "normal" about it when you are standing on the wrong side of the ball  :D jk jk

I used to use a regular grip, but I found when I would stop and bring the club forward, it would pull in towards my body just a little bit and I kept hitting it toward the toe. Over the winter I've been practising LH low and I seem to be straighter going back and through.

 

Whenever this damn snow leaves for good I'll actually know if its better or not!!!

I always putted crosshand (left hand low), it's the way my dad taught me as a kid. I really like it, I get my lead arm very straight and just let it sweep/pendulum across my body. My line isn't always great but I have really good speed control this way.

Use whatever grip feels the best and gives the best results.  IMO it doesn't matter what grip you use, as long as it isn't the same grip for your full swing.
