Winn Grips...I put them on my irons and i love them. They are really soft but grip really nice. The best way i can describe them is like a rubbery firm foam...

I'm one of the folks that swear by them now. I did develop a callous on the inside of my fingers from using the grip though. It definately feels a little different.

I'm not a big fan if Winn grips. When I've used them in the past, they've always seemed to wear out and get slick pretty quickly. Then again, I don't change my grips the "recommended" once a year.

You really can't go wrong with the Golf Pride Multicompound. I use the midsize ones as I have large hands.

You will not be disapointed.

I have been using Winn grips for a couple seasons and have not noticed the wear issues that some people complain about. (this may have been an issue previously?)

Currently, I have the PCI (half cord) grips and like them a thousand times better than the old Golf Pride cord I used to use. The appeal for me is that they seem softer and tackier which helps me ease off my grip pressure.

For me it's Lamkin or Golfpride full cords...regular size with two layers of tape underneath. Been using these for a long while and never really desired to change.

They hold up wonderfully to sweaty palms and high humidity golf.

There are a ton of choices out there....many will please you in some way or another.....one or two will feel "just right".

I was in Dick's Sporting goods yesterday....they had a fairly decent selection of grips that were on shafts for you to evaluate....probably 30 different types. It could take and hour or better to find the "right" one.

Go to your local golf store/pro shop and see what they keep in stock and give them a feel for yourself. If you don't already have a favorite, best thing to do is to try some out and find what you like.

If you play a bunch, keep the price in mind so if you want to change them next year you are not out too much money. Of course money might not be an issue. If you are only a casual player, get whatever you want because you probably won't change them again for a few years. That being said, a lot of the knock-off brands (Kelmac, Avon, Sharpro, etc.) are about half the price and are quality products, but they typically won't last as long.

I play with Golf Pride Tour Velvet and will change them every year. I wish I could play the Lamkin Dual Density Torsion Control but they cost way too much for me.

I went to Dicks today and did what everyone suggested. It took about an hour to find which one was the best. I decided on the Winn Excel AVS. I had the Velvet style grip on there, and it turned very hard. I have only owned the club for a year. I haven't gotten the chance to take it out and play yet. Hopefully Sunday. Thanks everyone for your input. It definately helped in my decision.

I'm sold on the new line of Winn grips. i have PCI's on all my irons (not wedges though). I've put them on my main driver and 3 metal. I have DSI's on some of my FW woods, and I also have the Xi7's on a couple other clubs.

The PCI's are a little harder, the other 2--def. soft.

I've kept the oem tour velvets on me Cleveland wedges, they're great.

And I've heard great things about the DD2 GP's, but haven't tried them yet.

I do have on Lamkin crossline sting free (the free one we were all getting months back). . .AWESOME grip. When I re-grip the next time around, I'll probably use these.

    • The entire purpose of rules are to make things fair... Someone breaching a rule could literally make it unfair. 
    • A meh, but fairly satisfactory 84 considering the break. I had like 9-10 pars or better. got lucky on more than a few scrambles, but a lot of doubles+. My biggest lesson learned after a long break: don't try to go after it.  it cost me a bunch of penalties trying to rope a few out there.  Aviara's beautiful tho, almost disneyland like.  Watching LPGA highlights there on youtube made us all sad about ourselves.
    • So.....you're sayin' it's physically mental......or mentally physical or is it feel vs mechanical or is it a sport or a hobby all I know is I want to golf that ball with my fairway metal while sporting my cargo shorts and rocking my driving hat while hitting a golf shot and being a great driver of the golf ball while someone mumbles 'shot' after a good golf strike of the golf ball and driving the golf cart and drinking the golf bloody mary
    • I don't know if golf is more mental than physical or vice versa.  But I am convinced that a different mental approach/focus can help many problems in the game that many, if not most, instructors view as purely physical/swing related issues.  A correct mental picture/intent can help golfers improve, and combining a mental approach with physical swing training can greatly accelerate improvement.      Take an over the top swing as an example.  With the pure physical approach, the instructor watches the player hit a few balls and dissects the swing into component parts.  The instructor gives a bunch of physical causes:  you take the club too inside or outside, you have too much weight on the front or back foot, you should be supinating your wrist or pronating it, your hips are firing too soon or too late.  The instructor has the player work on a different take away for the first week.  When that gets better, they move onto the next problem and try to fix it.  Two months late, the player is hitting it much better on the range, but still frequently comes over the top on the course.  The more the student focuses on the ball, the more likely a OTT swing will show up.     The other approach:  the instructor watches the student take some practice swings and then hit some balls.  The instructor notices that the student rarely comes over the top for a practice swing but does so on most, but not all swings with a ball.  Okay, she asks, why is the player sometimes coming over the top?  Why is it worse when a ball is present?  The instructor asks what the player is focused on.  The ball of course.  I want to hit the ball, make sure the club head makes good contact.  The instructor then changes the focus of the player from hitting the ball to swinging through the ball to a target.  The instructor explains that OTT is the default when the ball is the target.  She gives some drills to improve focus away from the ball:  the player hits whiffle balls to warm up, the player has to verbally identify the target and intermediary target and rehearse swinging out to the target, the instructor gives the student a mental image of swinging through the ball instead of hitting at the ball.  After a week, the over the top move shows up less often and is not as pronounced.  The instructor continues to have the student work on the mental side of swinging to the target and combines that with swing changes.     In the physical only approach, the physical changes will be harder to adopt because the physical swing is fighting against the students mental image of what is needed and the student's primary focus.  When the mental and physical are aligned, progress will be faster.  Another way to say it:  the mind directs the body. The mind is telling the body to swing one way when the ball is the target and a different way when swinging to the pin.      In any case, an instructor who ignores the student's thoughts is short changing the student by focusing only on the physical.  There's an old saying, if the only tool you have is a hammer, everything begins to look like a nail.  If the instructor only deals with physical swing changes, every problem looks like a physical problem.     On the course, which is more important, the physical or the mental?  I don't know, but it is important that the mental image/goal/focus aids the physical side instead of fighting against it.
