    Awesome video. I think I'm more palmy, so can't wait to get home and try a finger grip. Do oversized grips help or hurt the grip setup?

    Great visual explanation of the grip and it makes me want to go home and look my own. The ZJ peice was interesting as well. Very helpful peice.

    Everything just made so much sense. I need to bring a putter to the office. Want to try this right now.

    Perfect timing for this. The putting grip is something I have been tinkering with all winter. I was following along with my putter during the video and the grip feels very nice.

    Yeah, I've been told by my instructor to grip the putter along my lifeline. He also has me interlocking two fingers (pinky and ring of my left, with the pointer and middle of my right). So far it seems to be working for me, but if it goes downhill ...

    That's kinda what I was wondering. I'm at work and don't have my putter with me, but it seems like the oversized grip would allow for a more relaxed grip while still using more of your palm.

    Very Cool.
    Amazingly, i am a light touch finger (not palm) grip guy. However, I cannot get away from dropping that index finger down the shaft. Been experimenting but results suffer.
