Is It Time To Change Your Putter Grip?

putter grip sizePutter grip size is an important fitting factor

After my 3 putt laden round I wrote about last week, I decided to do something proactive about it.  For one, the putter was quickly banished from the bag and rightfully so and exchanged for a shiny new model.  You see, this is the best time of the year when it comes to equipment as a lot of the future products you will see later this fall or next year, as I am receiving final prototypes of. Hey, it’s a tough job, but somebody has to do it.

The new putter model (Acer CB7 coming at the end of November) was quickly put to test.  Yes, I did spend a few minutes on the practice green before teeing off for a quick nine after work.  So I do happen to practice what I preach.  Any way, after the round was over, tallied and statistics for number of fairways hit, GIR’s, etc. where entered in my computer, I noticed that I had a record low number of putts for the year and possibly for a long, long time.

Could I attribute it to the new center-shafted, high MOI mallet model or practicing a few minutes before the round?  Perhaps, but I found one other clue; that was the grip size.  On this particular putter I had installed a much smaller

grip that I had been using for the majority of the year.

In my neck of the woods, the greens are getting slower as it sadly becomes cooler, damper and there is less daylight.  The super jumbo sized putter grip worked fine when the putting stroke used little to no wrists and I relied on the big muscles in shoulders to propel the ball.  But as the greens slowed down I could no longer get the ball to the hole and taking a longer putting stroke no longer felt natural or comfortable.  The smaller putter grip allowed a wristy stroke by making it feel more head heavy and voila, the ball got to the hole with less effort.

To test my theory, I decided to re-grip my old CB8 putter (yes, it is coming too) with a smaller sized grip and head to the practice green to spend a good half hour comparing it to the CB7 putter.  By simply re-gripping, it totally transformed my once banished putter back into the rotation in the bag and now I got two

gamers to choose from. Who knows, I might re-grip to a larger putter grip next year when summer arrives, but for now the smaller sized putter grip is going to be a stroke saver.

If you are struggling on the green, re-gripping your putter may be a quick and inexpensive way to improve your score.  But also, make sure to hit the practice putting green as well.

Why didn’t I spend 5 valuable minutes on the practice green getting a feel for the green before teeing off?

If you are like me and you have a pristine day waiting after work, you race to the golf course to play a quick nine holes or whatever you can get in. Just the other day was a typical end of the summer evening, warm and humid, but quite comfortable. The best part, at least for me, was the parking lot was sparse and when I got to the first tee I could see I had the whole course to myself.

I was thinking I would be a little rusty after another bout with poison ivy that sidelined me for a few weeks. But I was able split the center of the fairway on the first hole with my trusty Dynacraft Prophet ICT driver. Before I left home, I even took a couple minutes to exchange shafts to one (Cadence Blue) I had used successfully in the past.

Well, after just missing the green on the second shot and pitching to 8 feet, I proceeded to 3-putt. I felt I was holding a foreign object in my hands. Did I all of the sudden forget how to putt since the last time I played? I hope none of you have experienced this lately, but I proceeded to three-putt 4 of the first 7 holes.

Why didn’t I spend 5 valuable minutes on the practice green getting a feel for the green before teeing off? After all, that is why it is positioned usually between the clubhouse and the first tee. You can’t miss it! One excuse was “I might have been stuck behind the threesome that rolled into the parking after I did.” But I am sure they would have let a single play through. No, I got caught up in the excitement of the moment and wanted to get in the round before dusk. However five minutes would not have mattered when it was all said and done as I had enough daylight to play several more holes. If I could spend a couple minutes swapping out shafts in my driver to improve my game, I could certainly spend some time honing another part of my game.

You must admit that a beautiful night on a golf course is never bad unless you had a terrible round. At least I ended up on a good note. A well hit drive on the last hole followed by a perfectly struck 7-iron (prototype Dynacraft Prophet Tour) leaving a potential birdie putt that I barely missed. By that time I had finally found my old and yet still not great putting stroke. You might say a little too late.

A good lesson should be learned for all from my lack of common sense. Turn a mediocre round into a good round by spending only a few minutes on the practice green. This is one quick way to help lower your golf score.
