I recommend going to your local golf shop actually. Most have demo grips built up to different sizes for you to try; they come usually come in undersize, standard, midsize etc. You also can add more layers to customize the size further; when doing this, be sure to consider the butt diameter of the club shaft and core size of the grip.

No demo grips around here hence the question

I just regripped my entire set with Golf Pride New Decades. .600 rounds.

I have always added about 2 layers of masking tape to slightly build up the grips before spiraling on some 3/4 inch wide two sided tape.

They feel awesome. Slightly fuller feel but not as fat feeling as a "midsize".

I went with Golf Pride Tour Velvets 3 wraps slightly under midsize now. They feel good at the range so far. Can't give a real performance yet as there is still some snow left on the ground. Either way if it helps I went from Mid-size Multi compounds to regular mulis than to Golf Pride VDR's 2 wraps and now to Tour Velvets 3 wraps. Play around with the wraps and see what feels best and performs best.

I think i made a poor decision going with 3 wraps and tour velvet. I have only played 2 rounds but i am second guessing my decision. I will play a few more rounds with them but I think 2 wraps and vdrs are my choice. I may splurge for multi comps but not real keen on dropping $100 for the 9 clubs.

I was looking at them. How do they hold up? Why are they not readily available at most stores? Just wondering. From what I read about them they seem very similiar.

I just put some on my whole bag, minus the driver (I put a NDMCon that when i bought it). I have played 7 rounds with them and no worries so far. Obviously not enough time to really give you an awnser tho. The club guy at the pro shop by my house has tried to get me to try them for a couple of years. After reading a lot of positive reviews for them I am giving them a shot. Other than that course pro shop I have only seen them for sale online.

Here is golf grip (and golf glove) fitting tool from Golf Pride grip company.

Grip categories (on left) are:

  • Junior
  • Undersize
  • Standard
  • (Midsize)
  • Jumbo

Smaller golf shops tend to stock primarily undersize and standard, and build up the standard with extra tape layers to increase size. Larger shops will carry grips of specific sizes, and only do minimal tape build-up.

Im thinking i am going to regrip my clubs this winter and I had a few questions.

1.  I went on the lamkin website, they recommended I go with standard +3 wraps.  Does plus 3 mean that I will have 4 wraps of tape?  I am just unsure weather the wrap that you need to hold the grip on counts.

2.  What do you guys use for your extra wrap.  Just use double sided tape for each wrap or do you build it up with some other tape or something else completely?

some guys go with extra wraps & thats fine.    I prefer to just go with larger grips (ex-baseball player - standard grips feel like a fishing rod without a handle to me).    I use Lamkin grips too - they make many grip models in standard, medium and oversize.     I regripped my clubs with Oversize grips the first year I played - liked them alot.    Went a little slimmer with my current clubs - using medium grips & really liking those alot.    I do all my own grip work & rather than building up the wrap underneath a standard grip, I just increased the size of the grip.    Some guys might want an in-between size & thats where extra wraps would help really customize the feel - I'm not that picky.    Different strokes as they say ...

    • New GolfNow layout is Awful
      Every customer is different, some know exactly what they want and expect you to execute their vision.  Others want more consultation and input from the designers as to what others are doing or what trends are on the rise.  Another factor is maintenance, how much time is required to keep the site updated, can the business maintain the site on their own or must that be outsourced, etc. There are numerous reasons why a business would redesign their site, such as; The business has undergone some fundamental changes that they want reflected in a new website The cost of maintaining the current site is too high The provider of their data has changed the feeds or discontinued certain elements of the data. Users have complained about how the site works The site is outdated or dependent on outdated technology or servers. They want a site that is "responsive" meaning the same site works on desktop, tablet and smart phones. I've never done work for a business that said they want to make their site worse, less user friendly, less functional or more frustrating for their customers to use.  My guess is that given the popularity of sites like GolfNow, that some standards were created for how the data would be distributed and updated to the GolfNow like websites from the different courses to make it easier for them all to get the data (the same thing happened to the airline industry).  The change to the backend likely warranted the changing of the front end as well. In some cases compromises must be made.  I've redesigned sites that were written in HTML, PHP and jQuery which are not easy for end users to maintain and update themselves.  The client wanted a responsive site that they could maintain easily on their own.  I suggested we develop the new site using Joomla, Drupel or WordPress as those platforms provided them with everything they requested.  They ultimately ended up with a WordPress site that was responsive and very functional but because of the platform certain nuances of the old site were lost. Users initially complained but we worked out some issues and over time they appreciated the more frequent updates and ability to easily view the site on their iPads and cell phones.  Website redesign like life is full of compromises.
    • Shorts On the PGA Tour (Updated 2013, 2016)
      I don't think the PGA Tour's stance on this has only to do with "tradition." Ultimately the PGA Tour is a member-run organization. If they strongly wished for shorts, they'd vote to allow it. That they've not done so speaks volumes, IMO.
    • Donald Trump for president?
      I heard something on the radio along the lines of New Hampshire having "super delegates" that will vote for Clinton regardless of yesterday's vote.  As far as Trump goes, my bottom line  is that he simply is not electable. Moderates, women and minorities aren't going to vote for that guy.    
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Just to clarify, I consider myself a committed Trump supporter, I like him. I am not a conservative in the traditional sense. Like anyone, I don't agree with every position that my candidate stands for, I do, however, agree on his main points re: immigration. 
    • Putting downhill vs uphill (2x distance of downhill length) poll
      Yep.  The first hole at TPC looks like they buried an elephant.  I lost a playing partner on that green. The course in the above posts I believe is The Bayou Club.  Checking tonight.  Not sure the hole number yet, but the green is next to the road.  If that's the course, I'll work out the hole number.  Their scorecards don't show hole layout, so I'll have to walk through the holes on the card. BTW, there is (or was) a hole at the Corry Pa muni (North Hills) that could have a 225 foot putt.  That's over 70 yards!  They don't make like that any more! Plus, the Links of Lake Bernadette has a shared green.  Haven't played there in a while, but as I recall the green was "U" shaped with bushes in the "U".  Had to putt to the bottom of the "U", then back on the other side.  Need to Google that later. St Andrews has shared greens but I don't recall any being like that.
