Putting Stroke

Improve your putting stroke with the 2thumb technique A massive amount of design attention is paid to getting better putter shaft length and better putter heads , but we believe that a better putter grip is just as vital in improving your putting stroke, ensuring the grip on your putter is correct, reducing wrist break and movement in the hands. The grip is where you feel the putt, the direct connection between you and the ball, and this is also the part where most improvement in your putting stroke can begin. Improving your putting stroke starts with the right grip. That’s why we’ve designed in Britain, and patented across the globe, a range of the putter grips that allow you to feel more balanced and in control when standing over a putt; we call it the TwoThumb grip. Curing the ‘Yips’ to improve your putting stroke Numerous ideas and explanations have been proposed to explain what has been known as ‘the putting yips’. Many have discussed the psychological or physiological nature of the yips which usually manifests itself in a poorly co-ordinated ‘stab’ type shot rather than a smooth controlled putting stroke. This anxious movement usually causes the wrists to break during the putting stroke which leads to inconsistent results. The 2thumb grip, by virtue of its oversized grip and the unique British patented design, fits naturally into the hands and therefore prevents ‘wrist break’ and therefore helps to prevent the ‘yips’. It couldn’t work any better. Improving your putting stroke simply. Quick Tips for improving your putting stroke Your grip on the putter should control not dominate Your putting stroke will be better with thumbs side by side and level, back of hands square to target Fingers simply wrap over each other around the back of the grip Arms are better hanging down naturally, never bellow out your elbows Putt better with your feet comfortably apart and parallel to target Back of the ball should be middle of stance for better putting Eyes directly over the ball Sole of putter should sit flat on the ground – never toe up Putter shaft should always be vertical at address to give better ball roll Length of putt comes from the through stroke – not from the back stroke – ie quarter back, three quarters through gives acceleration Look at the back of the ball during the stroke – not at the centre Stroke through the ball rather than hitting it Keep knees still during stroke Putter head should be held still at end of stroke – don't snatch or recoil
