7 Most Common Golf Putting Grips!

When it boils down to selecting a golf putting grip, you will find out that there is no one perfect putting grip in golf to suit all players! In fact, when it comes to golf putting grips, there are probably more variations and preferences in style to choose from than in any other area of the golf game.

So if you are new to the game or feel that your current golf putting grip just isn't working out for you at the moment, then you may want to consider one of the 7 most common golf putting grips that i have listed below, and see if you can change your fortunes on the putting green!

There are of course many other putting grip options that are out there to pick from or you may decide to create your own new unique style based on a combination of the ones listed below, but you will find that most of the great golf putters in the world will have adopted one of these golf putting grips:

The Reverse Overlap Golf Putting Grip - This is probably the most common golf putting grip - place both hands on the putter next to each other (left hand above) with the thumbs on top of the grip pointing downwards. Then wrap the index finger of the left hand so it is covering the fingers of the right hand, this ensures that they are connected and can work as one unit.

The Cross-Handed Golf Putting Grip - This is basically the reverse of the traditional Reverse Overlap - so you would place both hands on the golf putter, but this time with the right hand above the left, again, both thumbs on top of the grip pointing down the shaft and the wrap the index finger of the right hand so it is covering the fingers of the left hand, the advantage of this putting grip is that the left hand is less likely to collapse in the forward stroke.

The Two Fingers Down Golf Putting Grip - This is a variation of the Reverse Overlap - so following the same set up but this time the index finger of the right hand will be placed on and pointing down the side of putter grip.

The Split Handed Golf Putting Grip - This is where the hands are placed apart from each other on the putting grip, you can alternate which hand goes on top. With this grip the fingers of the top hand should be touching the forearm of the lower hand to ensure they are working as one unit. Again, the advantage of this putting grip is that the left hand is less likely to collapse in the forward stroke.

The Claw Golf Putting Grip - This is probably the most unusual putting grip - the left hand is place on the putter grip in the traditional way, however the fingers of the right hand are place on top of the grip, with the thumb hooking underneath, which looks like a lobsters pincer or claw (hence the name).

The Bernhard Langer Golf Putting Grip - This grip is intended to take the hands out of the equation allowing the shoulders to take control - place your left hand at the bottom of the putter grip with the index finger pointing down the shaft, the left forearm should be resting tightly against the putter grip. Then add the right hand to the top of the grip so that the fingers are resting againt the back of the left arm ad the thumb is resting just above the wrist joint of the left arm.

The Box Golf Putting Grip - This is one of the most recent of golf putting grips - with this putting grip, both of your hands are place side by side, so that your shoulders are level. The left hand should be placed near the top of the grip with the index finger running down the side of the grip and the right hand is placed just slightly lower but covering the left hand, with the fingers wraping over the left hands fingers.

There are of course, many other variations and styles of golf putting grips to choose from, however you should be able to find one from the above list that feels right and is comfortable for you.
