Super Stroke Grip Leads Choi to Victory at ATT National
Every now and then, one of the “little” companies, new entries with a great idea and product capture the attention of the golfing world and so it was last week at the inaugural ATT National hosted by Tiger Woods.
KJ Choi had seen the SuperStroke Grip on the Golf Channel and in fact ordered one. At the tournament, in one of the Tour Vans, he saw it again, had it installed, and the rest as they say is history. He wins in a walk with a stellar career defining win with vastly improved putting stats on greens that had Tiger talking to himself.
Stoke Solutions, the parent company introduced the oversized putting grip at the PGA Show in Orlando where I had a chance to meet them. Later in an interview with Andy North, two time US Open winner, who is company spokesperson, he described the reason it works so well. With a larger handle, the hands just naturally have less tension and less wrist breakdown, which is the most common reason for missed short putts.
The grip is easy to install by anyone. There is no grip tape or solution required. It simply slides over the shaft and can be positioned in anyway you wish. Flat forward, flat in back, flat toward the target, then simply set the penetrating set screws and glue the set screws in place for full USGA conforming status.
These guy are one of the good guys and for a product to be used first time out and get a win is huge. Congratulations KJ, and SUPERSTROKE!

Thanks for the information.
Bigger grip, less hand rotation, more fades/slices.
Thinner grip, more hand rotation, more draws/hooks.
Reminded me of the old "Tiger Shark" grips. Very large, takes "wrist" out of the stroke.
Question: Is is legal to reposition the flat of the grip? I was under the impression that the rules stated you must have the flat of the grip positioned toward the thumbs.
Any rules junkie want to check that out?
