    I have underestimated the required putting.

    thanks for that,

  2. What do you think of the claw grip? Justin Rose mentioned that it improved his putting after shooting 65 in the first round of the US Open today

    Hi Paul

    I have always been a very good putter, using the reverse overlap grip. A few years ago I started having issue on mid length putts and switched to left (lead) hand low. While it still doesn’t feel as natural as a conventional grip, it solved the issue I was having.

    What are your thoughts on lead hand low?

    Hi Paul,

    I seem to do better if I interlock the two small fingers, thumbs down the top of the shaft as you say, but with my right index finger pointing down the right hand side of the shaft. Having the index finger there seems to stiifen the grip and reduces any wrist flex.

    Any thoughts on that?

      How many pros do that? Zero of the greatest putters do that. I would learn the other but you can always practice enough to prove me wrong. I see this grip all the time in students yet rarely in pros. We do the grip we do to stop the wrists from being loose. This is the whole point.
