I GOTTA TRY THIS! - The Two-Handed Putter Grip


Recommended Posts

I've seen a training putter/grip like this before. Can't remember who made it though.

Have a ton of back-ups in all categories, but there are always 14 clubs in the bag that differ depending on the course and set-up. Bomb and gouge. Yes, I'm a club gigolo.

I would think this is a training aid? No way that grip would be legal under the rules of golf.

 

Why would this not be legal? As far as I have seen there is nothing that says how one must grab the club. That is the reason the long putters are legal. This is no different that the two thumb putters.

 

I actually changed putter grips today, the way I hold the club not the rubber on the shaft. I went to the interlocking grip and love it.

"must be straight and plain in form"?

 

3. Grip (see Fig. VII)

The grip consists of material added to the shaft to enable the player to

obtain a firm hold. The grip must be fixed to the shaft, must be straight and

plain in form, must extend to the end of the shaft and must not be molded

for any part of the hands. If no material is added, that portion of the shaft

designed to be held by the player must be considered the grip.

 

(ii) A putter grip may have a

non-circular cross-section,

provided the crosssection has no concavity,

is symmetrical and

remains generally similar

throughout the length of

the grip. (See Clause (v)

overleaf).

(iii) The grip may be tapered

but must not have any

bulge or waist. Its crosssectional dimensions

measured in any direction

must not exceed 1.75

inches (44.45 mm).

 

 

 

Of course the "plain in form" aspect is subjective and has to be decided by the USGA or R&A as the case may be.

 

I do agree that this is "less cheating" than anchoring.

Well, there you have it. I did not want one anyway.

Medicus, they had it all over their infomercials when they advertised the Medicus driver
