Hi Jake,

Thanks for your advice.

I am using Tri-ball odyssey putter. But I find that the original grip cannot control well since the putter head is heavy.

So I am looking for a over-sized grip to increase the control of the putter...

I used 2-thrumb grip for my previous putter before so now looking for alternative. otherwise, i will go back to use the same grip for my current putter

Hey, can share more on this....

do you mean that the weight of the bigger grip will lead to an unbalanced swing ?
i thought it does not matter to much to putter coz not to swing weight equivalent..

This is often a very under-discussed topic about putters and the putting stroke.

Your putter swingweight should match the rest of your set for consistency. If you have a swingweight of D2s in your Driver, irons and wedges, you should try and match your putter to a D2 too.

By having a big grip on your putter, your swingweight can actually change quite a few points. It will look like a great way to keep your hands and wrists quiet but you might suffer a lack of putter head feel during the stroke and potential distance control problems.

I had my 2 half-mallet putters grip changed to similar bigger size grip, one at Golf House Suntec, and one at Fairway Club (range) at Jurong.

Both fitters also advised it will affect swing weight if the putter is light (e.g. blade putter), and would not recommend.

I tried both putters, both ease the grip (less tension), but imho it still depends on one's putting swing consistency;

Lets just say that the world's best putters all use skinny grips. If you are considering them, you are going the wrong direction of trying to improve.

hmmm, i m not a expert or into those swing weight etc...

what i am saying, if u are already very happy and comfortable with yr current putter, try not to change anything, (changing grips, adding lead tape, etc)

if u need to change the grip, due to wear n tear, try to ask the fitter if possible to replace with a grip tht's similar in weight to the original grip.


my case, i change my grip due to the old one tht's worn off..... saw this beautiful grip but slightly larger, so change it w/o thinking.... (i think is abt 20g heavier then the original standard grip)
so use it during game n find tht i cant feel the putter head as before (head feels lighter) so start to putt abit inconsistent...

then i put extra lead tape at the head to counter this... finally i can feel the putter head again... but i forgot something.... every putts start to flies!! (coz now the putter is much more heavier then b4).. tht's how i screw up my putting.... Sad


finally, now i change back to a standard grip n remove the lead tape.... putting slightly improve back but now still with lots of uncertainty.... sigh....

Hi,

Thanks for all your valuable input...

does anyone using tri-ball putter here?

i really find is hard to control with the current grip, i guess that is the reason why ppl is selling away here.

but i think it is just a great putter but need to control it fully and you will unleash the potential for eagle or birdie putt...
