PostSubject: Big Fat Putter Grip   Wed Jul 31, 2013 6:49 pm

Good evening to all

I have seeing more and more golfer using the big & fat grip for their putters.

To those whom had change from the regular to this big & fat grip, any improvement to your putting??? Do you have more "feel"???

Or why you changed???

Good and bad. I have changed one putter, make more straighter put, but lost some feeling (like distance control) and also feel the putter head more lighter.

I felt more comfortable with big grips etc super stroke slim. feel was 9/10 normal grips would be 7/10 distance wise it's not bad! practice more for distance.

Hahahaha

My kakis wanted to throw away my Scotty putter last Sunday, as I consistently single-putt  those 10-15 ft recently, and more evident last Sunday.

Putting make up approx. 35-40% of your stroke count in a game.

After hearing from the above feedback, I am convince to change to the big & fat grip and will make them regret ever played with me!!!!!

Hi Simon,

Yes, this big fat and some ppl considered ugly putter grip did improve my putting. I was gripping my putter too tight previously and could not feel the head much. 
After changing to this, I do not have to grip tighter and hence has better feel. So my distance control is better. 
My left wrist also do not "break" like b4 with the slimmer grip. Cheers!

I changed mine at FESC for $33, if I did not remember wrongly. The feel of the WINN grip was really quite good.

I'm still pretty much a newbie and previously I was using the TM Ghost blade putter. With that putter, I was averaging about 48 putts. Subsequently, I used the TM Spider Mallet putter and I was averaging about 39 putts. Both grips were stock grips (thin kind).

Then one day at Creative Golf, I saw a TM Rossa Spider Bassaro Mallet putter. I fell in love with the design and bought it immediately. The grip was the fatter kind. Initially, I had problems getting used to the grip and I was averaging about 43 putts. After I got used to the grip (took me about 2 months and about 8 games), my putting average went down to about 36.

Recently, I scored my best number of putts when I played 31 putts and as the putter grip was getting a bit worn out, I decided to change the grip. I changed it to a similar Tiger Shark grip and that grip lasted me only 4 games. During those 4 games, I felt that I lost the feel totally again for this same putter that had allowed me to nail the hole with 1 putt from 6-8m previously. I suspected for a while that it may be the grip problem. During these 4 games, I was averaging about 44 putts all over again.

And so, I changed my putter grip again to the WINN fat grip. Since I changed it, I have played 2 games and for the first game, I played 36 putts. For the second game, I played 31 putts. I got back the feel and now swear by the fat grip!

Hope this sharing of my experience helps!

Big putter grips restrict wrist movement and you tend to grip lightly, resulting in straighter putts. But best for heavier putter heads.

Good for you, you just need to work on getting the 300 yard drives and you'll be on tour

According to this report on PGA tour putting stats 
At 10 to 15 feet the percentage of putts made is only 33%.

I have played with a Crown oversized putter grip for the best part of 2 years, the change was mainly driven by the size of my hands and the need to be able to feel the putter better.

I find I am more comfortable over the ball and do not miss so many putts left as before.

I am now averaqing between 30-34 putts per round. With more hard work ill get that down to 30 even.

Putting is all about feel, big or small grip. I like big grips better. Not for the feel factor but for comfort.Smile

Be careful with using the number of putts as the sole stat for putting performance. Note that you can be putting more because you are going for the greens in regulation (hence longer first putt) and the number can be less if you are missing greens and pitching close.

Agree with this assessment. If you are short of green, it is easier to achieve 1 putt than landing on regulation and ball is, say, 50' away.Beer

 When you have only got 76 shots a round putting numbers become very important. A low handicapper should have no more than 30-34 putts a round. That leaves approx 2.4 shots per hole to get it on the green.

Every time I golf, I target not more than 32 putts. I manage to achieve it most of the time. But that's because I am short of green in regulation. If I have more greens in regulation, I probably will have more putts. But again, achieving more GIR will most likely to translate into better scoring.

I have got myself into a bit of  a hole of late. I know I only have 4 shots per round to play with so I play safe. My course management is very good and I hit a good percentage of greens in regulation. The problem is i need to be a bit more agressive with my putts if I want to get down below my current handicap of 3.9. Its all become a bit of a mind game now.

Thank you for your salute. I am working very hard to get down to scratch and I think my putting holds the key as my long game is generally very good. Mind you saying that we all have issues off the tee from time to time.
