Grip size...

6 posts in this topic

So I was recently reading an article where they did a blind test basically, and it turned out that static hand measuring didn't actually work for grip sizing. So my question is how do you go about figuring out your grip size... besides just re-gripping your clubs constantly? I currently use midsize, but think they may still be small for my large hands... 6'5"... something like a 9" hand... used static measuring for these, but like I said, they still feel a bit small.

All I know is I used to love oversize and switched back to standard when I bought my new clubs this year.  They didn't feel bad but I recently changed all my clubs grips (mostly to get rid of that obnoxious Ricky Fowler orange on my amp irons) and realized midsize made a huge difference to me.

I hit some 7i shots and was getting about 160 on the launch monitor.  With the new grips I was hitting it 175 and it felt waaaay better.  I don't know if those distances are accurate because I haven't been to the range yet but I did play a quick 9 this morning and my shots felt much more controlled and I did see a little bit of a distance increase.

I would like to hear others opinions on this

I have used grips that are 1/8" thicker than standard. I originally did this because I read that a thicker grip will minimize wrist action. Since I used to fight a hook, it made sense. I haven't played standard sized grips in years. As someone may have eluded to earlier, one of the major golf magazines had an article recently saying that many golfer play with grips that are too small... I'm now waiting for that exact same magazine to say the opposite in one of their next few issues. It's amazing how those magazines do that...

I like the Winn Dri-tac, Old Vi-17? ....I get them1/8" over size and they are like butter. They are stress-ball soft so If you need extra grip you just squeeze on down. However you do not get the feedback from your shot....

      How does the bank lose money? Is inflation that bad that the 30,000 euros of interest is not enough to cover it? Is it because the bank no longer has that money at their disposal to invest for a potentially larger return on their investment when compared to a mortgage?

      paradoxal bank fact : in our banks in france if you take a mortgage of 100 000 euros for 20 years at 2,5 interest rate you will probably pay close to 30 000 euros of interest. this seams huge to customers. nevertheless the bank might loose money or have à max a 200 euros margin per year. the only way we make money is on the mortgage insurance policy part and getting a long time customer in the bank.

    • Myrtle Beach in early March part duex
      Okay I think you may be a little confused on your location...You said that you are staying at Holiday Sands North close to the Boardwalk.  Your Hotel is centrally located in Myrtle Beach.  A lot of people not familiar of the area mistakenly think that "North Myrtle Beach" is referring to an area in the Northern part of Myrtle Beach.  Actually it is a separate city that is located a good ten miles from where you are staying.  The closest "North Myrtle Beach" courses to you would be the Barefoot Resort courses which are about 13 miles from you and are considered higher end courses where you will be paying probably around $125 per round to play unless you book a package deal or play with a member.  The next closest North Myrtle Beach courses which are mid-tiered and a little more price friendly that may seem to be what you are looking for are a little farther north into North Myrtle located probably about 15 to 17 miles from where you are staying.   The closest courses to where you are staying include Myrtlewood, Pine Lakes Country Club, River Oaks Plantation, World Tour, and the Legends courses.  All are probably right within the amount of travel time that you are looking at.  I would second the earlier poster that you contact @bnlongdriver.  Tell him (Brian) what you are looking for and he will set you up nicely.  I would definitely avoid GolfNow for anything related to Myrtle Beach.  Very few courses down there work with Golf Now and the few that do are lower tiered courses that you probably wouldn't want to play as there are many better choices for the money that you will be playing.  Looks like you will be going right as the peak golf season is starting to get underway so last minute deals, although probably available, will be a bit more difficult to come by.  However, if this is the route that you want to take, again I would contact Brian as he has the ability to get a lot of very good "48 hour" rates.  If you go ahead and contact him now and let him know that's the way you want to go, he will be able to keep you in mind and as the time of your arrival nears will have a better idea of what to find you.
