Product Review – P2 Putter Grips
Look, I feel like we have been at this long enough that I can admit this to you…keep a secret. Putting is not my strong suit, hell it’s something that has been plaguing my game for a long time. I am always looking for innovative ways to practice or different putters to change my game. For the longest time the golf industry seemed to be changing – inventing new club technology or improving on the materials and make of golf balls, but the one thing that remained pretty constant was putter grips. In the last couple years, we have seen Super Stroke come out with a new way to approach the putter grip. And as with any innovation new companies come in and take the new approach and change it or improve it.
We came across P2 Putter Grips on Instagram and we had to try them. We are mid to high handicap golfers, so anything we can try to give us a little edge we are all about it.
One thing we love about P2 Putter Grips is their story. Enda McLoughlin, a PGA Pro out of Ireland, decided that the market did not offer the level of grip he wanted and felt that others should have access to. Rather than sit around and wait, he decided to make it and help golfers around the world. You will see this grip from the muni track all the way to 3-time Major winner Padraig Harrington. Nothing better than seeing someone have a dream and make it happen.
Our friends over at P2 sent us their line of grips to try out. All of us at Golf Starz use blade putters so we decided to put them on a number of different make and models we had so we could get a real feel for each. The first thing that stood out to me was that I felt like I was striking the ball better and was getting more true roles. I was really starting to strike the ball closer to the sweet spot of the putter. It’s one thing to read about the patented technology that is based on where the shaft of the putter is housed through the bottom of the grip, but when you start to strike the ball better and start to have more control over your putter it moves from paper to practice.
Not only did I feel like the grips started to really allow me to strike the ball closer to the sweet spot, I also noticed that my hands didn’t move as much. While we tried almost every grip they offer – the grip I seemed to gravitate to most was the Classic Tour. I have a pretty traditional putting grip and felt that the Classic Tour worked best. I felt like my hands fits perfect to it, and my hands really started to calm down. It just felt natural. While I started to make more putts and feel more confident in my putting ability with this grip, I did still have some three putts. Full disclosure, the grip had nothing to do with that.
I don’t care how many people write about it, once you get this grip in your hands you will immediately feel the difference. As our friends, over at P2 say #maketheswitch. You can purchase P2 grips here.
