BENEFITS OF OVERSIZED GRIPS

Posted by on in Blog Posts

The effect the putter grip has on your performance is massive.  Using a grip that matches your stroke is vital to get the most out of your putting as well as finding a feel that you prefer.  The craze with oversize putter grips has been going on for quite some time now, here are my two senses on it.

There is no question that every golfer, profesional and amateurs, are constantly trying to find something that will make them better, something that gives them an edge.  In putting, most of the time, it has to do with controlling the putter, which leads to holing more putts.  Pretty obvious right?  Well, there are more than a few ways to do that.  Primarily, players would shift to a more face balanced putter or a heavier putter at that. It gives them the sense of more control.  Recently players expanded their horizons and switched out their traditional putter grip (think Tiger’s “Ping” blacked out grip) to oversized grips.  In essence the oversized grips do two things, 1- they relieve grip pressure 2- they limit the hand and wrist action on the stroke (important to note, “limit” not “eliminate”).  Two pretty important factors in putting.  I recall many years ago during my Junior playing career you would see an oversize-putting grip once in a blue moon.  Back then, everyone immediately thought, that guy struggles with his putting.  Fast-forward 20 years and now some of the best putters in the world are using them; Jordan Spieth and Phil Mickelson come to mind.  Both of them are not only using them but have won countless of PGA Tour events including Majors.  Spieth has actually played his entire professional career with one.

I am a firm believer that tension kills golf games and many golf games have gone sour because of bad putting.  I am a fan of what the oversized grip does in many players’ game, I do however don’t believe it will have a positive impact on everybody.  Like anything in golf, there is no one-way, the important thing if you’re struggling, is for you to try it out.  The best recommendation I can give you is for you to use you The Perfect Putter, set up a few different stations using gates on some and none on others and put the grips through the ringer.  Measure your performance with a traditional grip and measure it again with an oversized grip.  As always, I would recommend you solicit the help of a PGA Professional for him to help you with the balancing of the putter once it goes through the grip change.  I think you will be surprised with the results!

Putt like you train!

FROM PRACTICE TO PERFORMANCE

Posted by on in Blog Posts

As many of you know, we constantly preach, “Perfect Practice”, “Putt like you Train” and “Proper Preparation Leads to Premium Performance.”  We truly believe that if you are constantly practicing properly and challenging yourself, that your performance will undoubtedly improve.  Having said that, there has to be a transition from your practice routine to get you into tournament mode.

I constantly get asked, what type of drills I have my PGA Tour Pro’s do. How much time they spend on each one? How often do they do them? How do the drills vary from an off week to a tournament week? I bet you probably have one or two questions of your own.  Obviously it depends on the player and what the inefficiencies they have at that present moment but I do have a general routine that they all go through.

How to choose a Putter

Posted by on in Blog Posts

Oh the putter. The one club in the bag that has ruined many games yet also acts as a great equalizer. The one club in the bag that has seen the most rotation in and out of the bag; in the bag, out of the bag, into the darkest corner in the closet and into the bag again. Some players have been together with their putters longer than they have been with their wives, and other players have shorter relationships than the life span of an ice cube. Finding a putter is tough. Length, loft, look, finish, the grip, the brand, the insert, not to mention the putter the hottest player on the PGA Tour is currently using, all play a part when picking a putter.  All of these things are variables that affect one’s decision.  The fact that a 2-foot putt counts the same as a 330-yard drive makes it easier to blame one’s putting for our undesirable scores. Since putting accounts for over 40% of the shots any given player hits during a round, picking a putter is an important process.  Here is our take as to how to go about it.

PERFECT PRACTICE

Posted by on in Blog Posts

Practice makes perfect.  How many times have you heard that? I remember the first time I saw that quote. I have always been a very competitive person and the quote really got to me.  I had dreams of playing golf like my childhood hero, Seve Ballesteros, and this quote spoke to me.  Practice makes perfect.  I took it to heart and for the next 15 years I applied it to my game.  I remember telling myself over and over “Practice makes Perfect”.  I would stand over 10 foot putts and not move on to the next station unless I made 50 straight.  I would do so thinking that the toughness of my practice, would indeed make me better, make me perfect.  Wow how times have changed.  I have come to realize how misguided that quote really was because of the way the words were arranged.

The End Season

Posted by on in Blog Posts

The 20016-2017 PGA Tour Season is officially over.  What a tremendous year filled with many exciting moments and unbelievable finishes.  The Majors were filled with gut wrenching shots and they crowned very worthy winners.  Sergio finally got his coveted and deserving Major, Brooks Koepka powered his way to victory, Jordan Spieth took us on a roller coaster ride to capture The Open and his 3rd leg of the Grand Slam and Justin Thomas out ran his competition to tame brutal Quail Hollow.  The regular season had its fare share of fireworks, Dustin Johnson (4), Hideki Matsuyama (3), Jordan Spieth (3) and Justin Thomas (5) all won at least 3 times each.  The American Team out performed and convincingly beat the Internationals at this year’s President Cup Matches, with a team that looks hungry to claim the Ryder Cup in Paris.  The level of performance by so many different players is a testament to how good the players are.  Each passing yearthe competition is fiercer and the fields deeper and deeper, separating oneself from the rest is harder to do this day in age.  It is safe to say that Golf is in great hands.
