Rickie Fowler comes out with a ‘super grip’ putter in his first tournament of the year

‘Why is the grip so big?’

Rickie Fowler (USA), who has not won the US Professional Golf (PGA) Tour since the Phoenix Open in February 2019, drew attention by using a ‘extra large grip’ putter.

Fowler participated in the first round of the tournament held at the La Quinta PGA West La Quinta Course (par 72) in La Quinta, California, USA on January 20 (hereafter Korean time). Fowler, who started his first PGA Tour schedule of the year at this tournament, played with a driver, 3-wood, and putter.

In particular, it was the putter that drew attention. Fowler, who was once ranked in the top 5 in the world but was pushed out of the top 100 in the world rankings due to poor performance, reunited with former swing learner Butch Harmon in September of last year, hoping for a comeback. There was one more effort. It was all about finding the right putter for you. This was a necessity for Fowler, who finished last year ranked 161st in putts, last on the tour.

Fowler, who had been using several putters alternately in actual competitions since last season to find a putter that suits him, took the putter used by his caddy in this competition. Fowler, who tried out his caddy’s putter last Sunday, asked Callaway to have a putter identical to his caddy’s before the tournament to see if he liked the putter.

In addition, Fowler fitted this putter with 온라인바카라 a special grip to create a super-large grip putter that boasts a thickness that makes you feel heavy at a glance. Tape was added to the bottom of the sole, where the putter touches the floor, to match the extra-large grip.

Although the grip is long, it is not a broom putter, so even if you hold the putter in the usual way, take a stance, and then stroke, the balanced setup makes the fowler’s putt simple.

“My putts haven’t worked the way I intended them to in recent years,” Fowler said. “I’ve lost the feel of my putts, so my right hand hasn’t been able to stroke with confidence,” Fowler said. I haven’t changed a single thing, but it frees me from the pressure of putting. I think it’s useful in that respect.”

Fowler, who received less pressure from the putt, showed off a smooth start with a 4-under-par 68, cutting out only 4 birdies without a bogey that day. Although there is a gap of 6 strokes from the leader, he is 3 strokes behind in the top 10, and after a tie for 6th at the Fortinet Championship last September and a runner-up at the Zojo Championship in October last year, he is looking at his third top 10 of the season.
