Grip Size

1 post in this topic


This is probably a dumb question. Golf Pride has to sizes for the Tour Velvet... (.580) and (.600)...My question is does it matter what size I get for my irons (in sig)...I'm pretty sure the butt of my driver and 3w is .600. I' am wanting to re grip irons, 3w, and driver from factory grips...crap.

    • Do you carry the Rules of Golf with you when you play?
      By Mike Boatright · Posted
      I play by the rules 99.9 % of the time. I play it down except when it's plugged and I don't play out of bounds,but on my home course there is no out o bounds. Trust me I play real golf I hit it and hit it again that's golf. I do take relief from sand filled divots in the fairway because that's the way it should be.

      Another round below par (-2) and just outside the top 10 for now. At least in a good position for the weekend. A little bit too many bogeys (3) to go really low.
    • Am I heading in the right direction finding my own swing?
      By saevel25 · Posted
      Almost no one performs a drill with 100% accuracy. Honestly any typical golfing drill is not good if it's not meant for the golfer to actually improve their swing in the direction they want to improve it. If you take a standard "Golf Digest" golf drill and just doing mindlessly it will probably not help you. If you go and see a good instructor who knows what you need to work on and gives you a drill that will change your swing for the better than that drill will work if you do it correctly. 

      As for grooving a feel into the swing. Drills are awesome for that if done right and if they meant for your swing. 
        Furyk is a special case. Furyk is a good case just to show that the backswing doesn't matter if it's consistent to the point it gets you in a good spot in the downswing. 

      Also, Zach Johnson works with Mike Bender. I think Mike just doesn't change how Zach's swing looks because it works. I am sure Zach has tinkered with some finer points to get a tad more consistent. 

      Ben Hogan was his own golf instructor and an outlier. If you don't have the skill like Hogan did then you will be a poor golfer trying to get better only by yourself.  Not particularly how I would go about learning a swing. What would this serve in terms of building a swing? What consistent movement are you trying to develop that lets you come back to the ball with a non-extreme swing path and with clubface control? Honestly I can't see how this would promote a consistent swing. From I am getting at is you want to hinge early, hold the hinge through out the turn then right?  Ok this makes a bit more sense. Pre-set drills are good for trying to get impact. They really don't teach you much of anything else. When you go back to a normal swing you might have improved your weight forward and how your hips move into impact but you still probably have a bad backswing. It depends on your priority piece. If your backswing is causing issues for your downswing then a pre-set drill is not the way to go. In the end it's best to find a good instructor that can figure out what you need to improve on and what to leave a lone. 
    • When am i ready to start playing the longer courses
      By Lihu · Posted
      There shouldn't be anything intimidating about playing a regulation course. You could start off on the forward tees, and work your way back whenever you feel comfortable. You can even move back on random feel good holes while playing the rest forward. Don't worry too much, just keep pace of play up and no one will complain. . .

      Just don't do what my buddy did to me. This guy started me on golf. We played two rounds on a par-3 and then he put my butt on one of the tougher courses my area has to offer. I hacked, thrashed, lost more balls that I care to think about and wanted to quit golf afterward. Obviously I didn't.  Depending on what your area has to offer, I'd say ramp up progressively. Look at the course ratings and pick something that will be a challenge for you without biting off more than you care the chew. Play the shorter tees at first and move back when you at least have a chance at par on most holes. Also, if you are nervous about it from a pace of play standpoint, late afternoon tee times are the best. Some courses are nearly empty at that point. If nothing else, most of the low-cappers have already rolled around the course, leaving it to us hackers.
