Speaker 1: Hey, let's talk about how do you grip the putter correctly now.
Now that we understand that it is a different grip, and you must pay attention to this.
First thing I want you to do, for right handers, just put your left hand in front of you, and look at your life line.
This is the line that runs right in between the two fatty parts of your hand.
What we're going to do is, we're just going to bring this club up here, and we're going to place the grip, and I like to have a sharp grip, you may not know what that feels, but just grab a couple different putters, and this area, right here, will be a little bit sharper.
Some of them are soft and rounded.
I like it to be sharp.
And the reason being, is it's real easy to put that right in the life line.
Now, as you notice here, the reason we put it in the life line is that the shaft of the putter matches my left forearm here.
There's a saying that says, "The machine with the fewest moving parts, it breaks down the least." That's true.
I don't want to whole lot of moving parts here with your putting.
By doing this, we're going to get your left forearm, and the shaft to match.
The more angles I create in here, as I get down here and set up, the more angles I have, the more difficult this is to repeat.
We want a simple repeating process.
First thing we're going to do, is place the grip in our life line of our left hand.
Our right hand, this finger, our index finger, will come into the air.
Do this with me at home.
Take your right hand, and just put your fingers together.
Now, as I do that, both thumbs will go straight down the shaft.
Let's do that again.
In the life line with the left hand, holding the club right here.
Right hand slides underneath, just like that.
And you can see, all my knuckles, right here, my fingers, are lined up.
Both thumbs are straight down the shaft.
Now, this index finger, as you can see, just rests right on my fingers.
Now, it can sit here, or here.
They're both called reverse overlap, and I don't care, nor does the golf gods care, which one you choose.
Either one will work in this instance.
They're both called reverse overlap.
The reason this is different than a full swing, full swing we're going to start to do this, or we're going to get the club more in the fingers for power.
We don't want that here.
Again, we want precision and control.
There's our grip.
We're going to sit right here.
Now, there may be other people that tell you to grip it a little bit different.
In putting, putting's the most individualistic part of the game.
Absolutely agree with that, that you can have slightly different grips.
But this is the easiest.
As you're trying to learn here, and you want precision, and you want repeatability, just trust me on this, and go with this grip.
Let's try it one more time.
Left hand, in the fingers.
Right hand slides underneath.
This index finger just sits right there.
Now, all we have to do is just bend your elbows into your belly and bend over.
And that is that grip.
Make sure that your grip is on their properly, because that is the only contact you have with the club.
And if you get your grip on there properly, golf's going to be a lot easier.
