Find the Best Golf Grip for Putting
The placement of your hands on your putting grip is critically important to your success. Here is what I mean by that. What I see a lot of times in putting grips is I will see one hand in this position here, where the grip is into the life line, but the other hand will be above it like this. What happens now is the right hand will tend to overtake the putter and it will either close it or leave it open during the putting stroke because there is a battle going on.
Place the putter Along the Lifeline of Hands
You want to be able to have the hands directly opposing one another and there are several different ways to do it. Our goal is to be able to have the putter run into the lifeline of both hands.
- Here would be an option, we want to have the club go right into the lifeline of the left hand here. You can see the palm and then I wrap my fingers around.
- Then I put the small of my right hand on top of my left middle finger which is on the club already, and now I have the same type of relationship with my hands. You can see that both hands are opposing one and other.
- I can also have the right hand extend further down the shaft if I wish to do that. I have both hands into the lifeline and the thumbs are on top.
- I can also do it where I reverse both hands and have my left hand low and my right hand high. It is still ok because it meets the requirements of one palm opposing another.
It will help you with your putting control on the face and blade of the club when you hit it versus having the hands fighting each other. Give this a try. Inspect your grip. I know it will make a big difference in your putting.
