White Grips Theory

14 posts in this topic

I recently regripped my clubs because I needed a more tacky feel due to control issues and my hands feeling they were being ripped up with a tour velvet grip from Golf Pride.  Im taking a big gamble as I regripped all the clubs with the Golf Pride Tour Wrap 2G.  In debating between black and white, I decided to go with all based on a theory that I tend to focus, at times, on my hands so I wanted to kinda blend my glove with the grip so everything to eye looks like its one solid color.  I know its completely mental, but its kind of a theory im working with.  Anyone have a take on this?

I have the white tour wraps on all my clubs but I tend to focus on the ball. I love the grips they can get a little slick in wet weather but a good wipe down solves that problem. I'm not sure about the focus on your hand theory because I think you would have a hard time hitting the ball.

White grips will probably keep your gloves from getting black.  Im not sure I buy the theory of white grips making it seem like the club and your hands are one though.  A good grip should give you all the oneness with the club that is neccesary.

I think the hands theory is ridiculous, but I like the 2G Wraps (mine are red).  The white look sharp.

If you are looking at your hands you've got problems.

I have the Tour Wraps in black because I use the .580 size on my shafts (.600).  My old driver had a different shaft (.625) so I could use the white (colors only come in .600).  It looked really sharp. I never noticed it once I had the club in my hand, but it sure looked cool.

My theory on white grips is this: They will stay tackier because I will have to clean them more often. I plan on doing my new wedge set in the white GP multicompounds.

I think you've answered your own question. Still, if you feel like it makes you better and then you play better, then it makes you better, even if it's not physically making you better. Ponder that, Grasshopper.

I'm boring. I'll stick with black. I've been trying the NDMC on a few clubs and wish that I could get those in black/black as well. Sigh.... As a previous poster noted though, if the white grips give you a better mental feel, they sound like a good fit to me. Perhaps that's why I stick with, and prefer, black?

I bought a set of the Winn lite firm grips.  13 of them and decided to buy new clubs so I don't need them right now.  Anyone want to buy them?  The part number on the packaging is 5LF-WH I paid $110+tax for them.  I would let them got for $95 obo.  Feel free to email me at kevinrriley@charter.net or PM me here

I believe you have the wrong forum.

    • do we really need fancy putters
      I guess this is where the old saying "never sell or give away a putter" comes from. If what you're using goes sour, you'll have something in your closet that will work!
    • What do you HATE the most about golf?
      Of course we don't hate golf overall, only on certain days. When you have a bad day, what do you hate most about golf? For me it's probably when starting the round off well, thinking "this is going to be a great round", only to hit a few shanks in a row and ruin everything. You get your hopes up, and then your hopes get crushed. So I guess how hard it is to get consistency in my shots. That's really what I hate about golf.
    • The Biggest Secret? SLIDE Your Hips
      I see this is an "oldie but goodie", and I certainly didn't want to wade through 46 pages of content. But just from reading the title of the thread, and this last page, I second that emotion. You have to slide your hips before you turn them! But, how much? I used to do a drill I called the "door jamb" drill. You would set up in an empty door jamb with the outside of your left foot, for a right hander, up against the jamb. You would mimic a swing, and, on the down swing, let your hips "slide" until your left hip hit the jamb. Only then would you start to turn your hips. This puts your left hip directly above your left foot. Thinking back, I used to play a lot of golf with a friend who moved West many years ago. Big guy, 6'4" and 220, but basically an arms and upper body swinger. He could still hit the ball long, but once in a while, by accident, he'd get his lower body involved and then he would crush it like Daly! Every time he did that I'd tease him by saying, "Yeah! You really got your big, fat, left ass cheek into that one, dintcha?!"
    • Reading Greens
      Speaking of stopping half way, I got some of my best reads today by walking halfway between the ball and hole and just taking a look. I was playing in an informal 2 man scramble with some buds for the grand prize of beers and dogs! On the very first hole, an easy par 5, we're putting for eagle. I putt first, and 3 feet from the hole we think the ball is in. A foot from the hole it breaks right and I graze the edge. I mark, and stand aside while my buddy putts. I'm about halfway and from there I can clearly see the subtle little mound in the green that the cup was cut in. You could not see it from behind the ball. Believe me, we checked! I've long been a proponent of letting my feet inform my brain, but if your eyes can't see everything then your feet can't feel everything. They have to work together to get the best read.
    • A Forum Just for Golfing?
      I'm not sure how this applies to my response?  I said if there were something free I'd use it vs build it and, if I wanted to build something just for the heck of it, I would expect that to be free or almost free as well.  This is true, is it not?  I don't consult on how to build internet forums . . . why would I know anything about what free forum software comes with hosting servers?  I assume there is some.
