What kind of grip do you guys/gals use when throwing a putter longer distances (longer approaches and shorter drives)? I love how a putter will basically sit right where it lands. I'd like to use this to my advantage on shorter drives and longer approaches. I've slowly been working the throws into my game but I have found I'm not real consistent in my grip. I just wanted to know what grips other people are using for these shots.

I use a basic fan grip for short Tee shots and approaches with my putter. I know some people that use the power grip but it just doesn't make sense to me with a putter.
I agree. Fan grip with any mid-range or putter.
I stack-grip when driving my putter.
I use a fan grip but its much tighter then my normal putting fan grip
Do you guys put your pointer finger on the rim of the disc?
I used to but now that I have a KC Aviar I put the bead in the first notch on my index finger
I use a modified fan grip for all midrange and putter shots. There are lots of variations to the fan and modified fan grips, so just do what feels best to you. I have shorter fingers, so my pinky and ring fingers tuck under the rim while my middle finger stack on the plate.

You might also want to check out these videos on grips from Feldberg and Climo, respectively:


yeah those videos were cool. I had never seen them before. I got some new stuff to try now, thanks everyone.
i throw with a fan grip and putt with my first finger on the rim.
I'll use a power grip for when I need to get it out there and for touch shots I use a pinch grip.
Standard Power Grip works for me !
