Kevin Na is using two different grips to putt, including The Claw

Kevin Na wouldn't be Kevin Na without some kind of quirk to his golf game. He's abandoned the swing-over-the-ball pre-shot routine, but has a different wrinkle these days: using two putting strokes.

Na, who shot 5-under 67 on Thursday at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, is using the Claw grip for shorter putts, but then using a traditional grip for longer putts.

"I'll do conventional, and [on] the short ones -- somewhat short ones, 20 feet and in -- I'll do the claw and it's been working," Na said Thursday. "I'm going to keep doing it."

Whatever works, right? However, Na won't face a life-or-death decision if he faces a putt that's on the edge of that 20-foot range.

"It's not going to be 21 feet [and] I can't do it," Na explained. "Kind of a guideline I have right now."
