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.
