HARRINGTON & COWEN WORKING TOGETHER WITH THE 2THUMB ROTATE
Padraig Harrington and Pete Cowen, two of the most respected PGA members have chosen to use the 2Thumb putter grip to its maximum potential.
A recent BBC Sport News article reported that a two thumb grip is now being used on the driving range as a recommended swing club training aid. The particular model that Pete Cowen is referring to is our new 2Thumb Rotate which is being fitted with the 2Thumb logo either 90 degrees to the club face, or slightly strong or weak.
Extract taken from the BBC Sport News report:
"We've put a lot more stability on his right side on the backswing so he supports the club better, a simple movement which then needs constant repetition. Then he can make the right action on the through-swing. If you load the swing right, you unload it correctly.
"...I've given him a training aid for the range that does that while he's swinging. It's a two-thumb grip put on in a certain way on the shaft. He's now more comfortable with his long game and can concentrate more on his short game again" Pete Cowen, PGA Master Professional
LAUNCH OF THE NEW 2THUMB ROTATE PUTTER GRIP
LAUNCH OF THE NEW 2THUMB ROTATE PUTTER GRIP
2Thumb Grip Ltd are pleased to announce the launch of their new 2Thumb Rotate mid size putter grip.
Taking the well established design and size of the award winning and scientifically proven 2Thumb putter grips series, the new 2Thumb Rotate has been reduced in width and depth. The slimmer design features of the new Rotate now allows the grip to be fitted effectively on to the putter shaft in a choice of two ways:-
Either, with the broader side of the grip facing uppermost as in the standard two thumbs side by side principle. (See Image 1 - 2Thumb putter grip hold).
Or, Rotated 90 degrees to the putter face and facing the target line. This optional choice of fit on the putter shaft allows the grip to sit comfortably across the palms and lifelines in both hands, in the standard and widely recognised one thumb above the other style of putter grip hold. (See Image 2 - 2Thumb Rotate hold).
The 2Thumb Rotate is an exciting addition to the successful 2Thumb putter grip range now offering a choice of 2Thumb putter grips to suit all players with serious ambition to lower their scores.

2THUMB PLAYERS WIN BOTH PROFESSIONAL AND AMATEUR WILLIAM HUNT TRILBY TOUR CHAMPIONSHIP !
2Thumb Grip Limited is pleased to congratulate both Tom Reid and Chris Dyson, winners of the William Hunt Trilby Tour 2010 Professional and Amateur Championships, playing in a field of a thousand competitors drawn from across England, Ireland and Scotland. Both players chose to use the 2Thumb grip on their putters in this tournament. Chris only started using the grip early season. He says, "it has really helped me in improving my putting stats. I now make many more putts in the 3-10 foot range as the plane of the putter is far more consistent once I take my wrists out of the stroke!! This has also given me some confidence to also take my mind out the stroke too!"

IT IS NOW OFFICIAL! 2THUMB PUTTER GRIPS IMPROVE YOUR PUTTING ACCURACY ....,
Experts at the leading Sports Technology Institute in the UK, Loughborough University, demonstrated that prolonged use of a 2Thumb putter grip improves putting performance.
2Thumb, the innovative putting company, are delighted to report that an exhaustive independent study into putting results, has scientifically proved conclusively that their putter grips promote a smoother pendulum-like putting stroke which improves putting accuracy..
The independent tests carried out under laboratory conditions consisted of twelve amateur golfers performing a series of putts, ranging from five to thirty feet in distance, using both a standard putter grip and a 2Thumb grip. Four different putter head types, provided by leading manufacturers, were also used in the study, while the motions of the body and putter head were simultaneously tracked throughout the putting stroke. In addition, overall balance, body and shoulder alignment, arm and shoulder motion, putter shaft and putter head movement were examined at address, back swing, ball impact and follow-through. Ball movement post-strike was recorded using a high speed camera..
Results proved overwhelmingly that both body and putter head movements were improved using the 2Thumb grip by creating a more natural stance for a pendulum motion. In addition, ball hop, skid and first roll distances were also significantly reduced..
How much more proof do you need !!!
Congratulations from 2Thumb Grip Limited to both Gordon J Brand and Pete Mitchell for finishing 2nd and 3rd respectively in the European Seniors Tour Final Order of Merit for 2008. Both these players use the standard length 2Thumb putter grip and have secured five tournament wins and numerous top ten places between them this year, and were only beaten by the broom handled putter used by Ian Woosnam. We very much look forward to working with many more professional players throughout 2009.
