An In-Depth Look into Putter Grip Sizing
When clubmakers and club fitters discuss grip sizing, many understand exactly what each size should be. For instance we have ladies, men’s standard, mid-size and jumbo nomenclatures. What these dimension mean is that when we measure down 2” below the grip cap, the grips have specific dimensions. The 2” mark is the approximate position of the upper hand on the grip and has been the standard reference point for quite some time. Most clubmaking books show these dimensions for regular grips, but do not have these same references for putter models.
