I have to get this story out to any golfers that suffer for tennis elbow. I'll try to keep this short. I bought my slightly used Titleist 735CM off ebay and the clubs were listed as standard everything. When I got them I found the grips to be midsized. I have average size hands so I've always played standard grips. I was too cheap to change the grips so I played 1 year with the grips. I'm a basically a driving range rat. When it was time to re-grip I did it myself and went back to standard with 1 wrap of tape. After about 2 months I started getting some mild tennis elbow. By the end of the year I had it so bad I couldn't get thru a round. I had a cortisone shot and gave it 3 months off. After 1 month it was back really bad. It finally dawned on my that it might be the grips. I had a local pro change the grips back to std with 3 wraps of tape to get closer to midsize. With in 2 months the elbow was nothing more than a dull ache. I had one more shot and 2 months later its gone. Moral of the story is be careful if when changing the grip size or doing it yourself. I'm sure I stretched the grips and made them really thin. I'm about 99% that the grips did it because nothing else changed.
