Product Review: FLAT CAT Putter Grip
I’ve attempted everything to counter this recent bout with poor performance on the greens, too. I’ve tried changing putters, but each putter has a vastly different feel than the last. I’ve tried changing my grip, as well, but changing the way I grip the putter changing the swing, which leads to even more missed putts ... and more frustration.
I was about to give up and accept the fact that my sub-30-putt rounds were a thing of the past. Then my buddy began raving about his new FLAT CAT putter grip. Unlike a traditional putter grip, each side of the FLAT CAT is in a parallel plane with the putter face.
Flash back to my last round of golf (pre-FLAT CAT): I had a six-foot birdie putt and I had the perfect read - inside, right edge. That’s about as simple as it gets. I stood over the putt and made a confident stroke, only to have the ball shoot directly left off the face. I didn’t mis-read the line nor pull the putt. It was all in my grip. At impact, my putter face was closed due to my grip.
Now, four weeks later, I’ve got the FLAT CAT on my putter and that doesn’t happen any more. If I miss, it’s because of incorrect speed or a poor read.
Whether you use a traditional putting style or left-hand low, saw, claw - whatever - the FLAT CAT design squares the hands to the putter face and provides alignment to the intended target line.
The company claims that FLAT CAT grips “immediately improve putting consistency and accuracy.” I can attest to this. Combine a good stroke with an accurate read and the ball will find the hole - eliminating the possibility of a poor grip.
