Pulled the oversize Tiger Shark grip off the SC putter and put on a Ping grip (ala Tiger? :D ) since it was the only decent one I liked (no SC grips around here). Now I can feel the head again and it's back to when I first got it.... deadly straight and on my line. Amazing how a simple thing like a putter grip can make or break how the club works. I've learned a valuable lesson here... don't mess with perfection. :D

Yeah I hear ya... I've looked at those oversized grips and I just can't help but think they would really F me up.

A couple years ago I tried about 4-5 different oversized grips, but after time ended up going back to the normal.

IMO, a 100g Tour Lock Pro does far more than an oversized grip (or any other change on my putter for that matter) ever did for me.

I've had the opposite result. I put one of those giant winn grips on my putter and it has made a huge difference in my putting. I tend to be very 'wristy' with the putter, so it helps me more than others I guess.

I'm in the middle. A normal grip feels small to me (all my clubs have midsize grips) so I went with a Tigershark but I lost all feel. I replaced it with a Winn Midsize pistol and it's perfect.

I like the idea of an oversize grip and it helped me put the ball on line but I just couldn't get the right distance control with one.

Warbird I just tried out the Ping man grip myself it is bar none one of the best putter grips. I had a Winn that was oversized on my older putter and I just don't like the feel of the Winn's.

Now I know why Tiger plays the Ping grip on his SC. It's a fantastic combo. Now to whip up on ejdahl21 and nututhugame tommorrow. At least on the greens... :D

I couldn't imagine having an oversized grip on a blade style putter. I had one on my Rife Mr. Beasley (a mallet) and it felt PERFECT. But whenever I'd try one at Golfsmith, it always just felt terrible...couldn't feel anything.

I went back to the stock grip on my PING Craz-e putter and immediately satrted putting better with it again. I like the way the oversize grips feel but I need the thin grip in my fingertips to putt well!

Played 18 today with the Ping (normal size) grip and the only thing I could right was putt. :)

WBL,

If you don't mind the 20minute drive to Gurnee, you will find some SC grips at Golf Galaxy. That is where I got mine in the spring.

P.S. I wanted to go out with a new shaft in my J33 today but had no grips. I went up to Dick's in Kenosha and they were closed...anyone know why? There were no signs, lights but a few construction vehicles.
