This season I started experimenting with the claw grip. Once I got comfortable with it, I found that I am much better at getting the ball started on its intended line. Distance control has been a bit of a struggle at times.

I just started left hand low this week. It has really help me to follow through on left to right putts that have always been my problem. Feels really good so far up close but still awkward at distance after so many years of a "conventional" putting grip.

I always used to tinker with my grip, then I finally found something that feels natural and has improved my putting a lot. It's almost like a ten finger grip, but my right index finger (as a lefty) runs over the top of the fingers on my left hand. If that makes any sense.

I've used a left hand (non-dominant) low for about 12-15 years now. Has felt the most comfortable and just able to get the ball to roll on the line I want. Feel like it helps to take my wrists out of play, especially on shorter putts.

I overlap for my general swing then take that grip and just kind of spread my fingers so my hands take up more space on the grip. This helps me keep a loose grip since it's almost impossible to grip it tight spread out like that.

My grip is fairly traditional except I have index fingers on both hands extended down the grip. It helps me feel where the putter head is lined up through the stroke. I have tested every grip you can think of and this one just feels the most comfortable and confidence inspiring.

This is my grip as well! I went to a flatso 2.0 and it allows both index fingers to be on flat parts of the grip. Really has helped my putting

I use right hand low and index finger straight. Same grip I've always used. What really helped me was moving to an oversize grip

Hands are pretty even. I use a 38inch Nike counterbalance putter and hold it a bit high which always for an nice easy rock of the putter. I do feel weird putter one or another hand lower then another. Mid slim sized grip.

I'm not normally one to go out and try something that you see or hear on the Golf Channel, but ... happened to be watching a few minutes of a recent Senior tourney and don't know which player it was but the camera zoomed in on his hands when he putted - and ALL the commentators, including whomever was the visiting pro that day, were absolutely totally raving about it!

So I gave it a try....

And now it's my putting grip!

Don't know what it's called (if anything fancy) but I'll try to describe it:
I'm right-handed, so the right hand goes on first .. and ends up being a bit 'under' the left. Right hand is loose, of course, near the top with index finger extending down the grip, back of palm facing back, rest of fingers on the back of the grip and thumb running down the top.

Position the putter head and then loosely wrap the left hand on .. to mirror the right .. with back of left palm facing front (down the line), index finger pointing down and thumb on top .. with last 3 left fingers gently overlapping the right hand last 3 fingers.

So I guess the left (lead) hand ends.up marginally lower down the grip.

This has really seemed to have helped me stabilize the putter head and keep it moving more in a straight line back and through.

WITB^ of a right-handed 61 y.o. "aspiring" ;) player ...

Traditional for me. I tried left hand low and while I was very accurate, I couldn't judge speed to save my life.

    Anyone have the Srixon Z565 or Z765 driver in play? Thinking of moving to the Srixon from my Titleist and was wondering what everyone's opinion was.
