GEAR INSIDER: Square Putter Grip?!

We talk with the founder of Sense Golf Grips, Andrew Chung and discuss the square and rectangle putter grip. Learn why the idea works, some of the engineering behind it, and all the details behind this unique putter grip.

Review and thoughts:

By aligning the square grip with the face of the putter you start to gain a lot of awareness of your target and intended start line. As a result you can get a lot of good awareness during practice and after a putt that goes awry.

“Whether it’s tennis rackets or hockey sticks. They’re all square or rectangular shape. And I felt that golf could use that. And face awareness is one of the key things that I thought was needed. And that’s why our shape is, so predominantly flat on every side.”

The sliding adjustable weight system opens up all kinds of options for creating different feels with the same putter. You can go from feeling the weight of the putter head more dominantly to a more balanced feel. It opens up all kind of experimentation and options

IMPLEMENTATION: I have found the feedback of a chalk line very effective combined with this grip.

Final thoughts… Have yet to find any downsides and it has found its way into my bag.

By balancing your daily recovery, strain and sleep, you will train optimally and unlock the secrets to your body’s true potential.

Recovery – Get personalized daily insight into how ready your body is ready to perform by looking at bio-metrics such as heart rate variability, resting heart rate, and sleep performance.

Strain – For those looking to track more than just steps. Track how strenuous your day is from start to finish and get insight into how much you exert yourself during training.

Sleep – Optimize the way you sleep by getting target sleep times based on how strenuous your day is and your performance goals. Monitor your sleep stages and cycles, time in bed vs actual sleep, sleep efficiency (How much you were asleep while sleeping), and more.
