K.J. Choi won the Memorial and the AT&T in 2007 using a super-oversized putter grip. After winning the 2008 Sony Open in Hawaii last week, Choi has climbed to No. 7 in the world, and he's still using that massive grip.

It's the SuperStroke Classic, and the company's booth at the PGA Show has been very busy. The grip's designers claim that it requires 32% less hand pressure than traditional grips, which is supposed to enhance your sense of touch. The size also helps you lock your wrists in place during your stroke, which increases your chances of squaring the face properly.

The grip has certainly help Choi--he went from averaging 29.51 putts per round in 2006 (ranking 151st on Tour) to 28.84 (39th). -- David Dusek
