Winn Hero Camo Grips?

12 posts in this topic

Saw them in a magazine and they look sweet!! Also saw them on ebay, but it was just the putter grip. They do sell the grips for other clubs, right?

I think this post might get me in some trouble, but please do not misconstrue what I am trying to say. I prompt my post with the following:

1 - I am 100% grateful for the sacrifice that military people make.

2 - I have a number of friends that are in the military and I support them 100%.

3 - I support donations to foundations that assist the military personnel and their families.

However I absolutely hate when companies do these types of marketing campaigns.  When I see ones like the Winn grips and the Srixon camo boxes last year, it makes me slightly angry.  I get that they are trying to generate money for the foundations and charities...but please don't be fooled by these marketing ploys that are trying to generate revenues.  If Winn is actually concerned with assisting the Troops First Foundation why not give all the sales from the grips to the foundation and not just a "portion"?  I understand marketing (as I have a degree in it) however I don't agree with this type of marketing that makes it look like they are doing some worthy AND THEN to use a name for the grip like "Hero" as to pull a little more on the emotions of the buyers is just an exclamation point.  I think this is tasteless and classless...JAT.

Quinn, As a professional marketing executive myself I am in complete agreement with you. It is a huge peeve of mine. Especially when you read the fine print and they throw in a limiting disclaimer.

Couldn't have said it any better. I have real problems with marketing, not only in golf. When I first saw the commercial I rolled my eyes, just like I do whenever I see some washed up pro or teacher as a spokesman for "instant" golf fixes. If you were a real golfer, you would not doop your own kind into believing that sh*t. Working at a golf shop, I see so much junk people buy off the tv and such, it's sad. But when I saw this, my immediate reaction was one of anger, they are using the troops as a means of selling grips! As you said, if you really cared, all their PROFIT should go to special armed forces foundations, yet, these pigs make money off of poor troops and emotions of a buyer. They're 0 for 2 so far. Besides the fact I hate Winn grips, I will never buy one because of this. tasteless and classless to the core!

All funds should be donated to veteran funds or whatever, I agree. I like the look of the grips, so I bought one for my putter and it looks sweet.

    • Played better at Western Gailes yesterday and loved the course - very welcoming and had me thinking much more than Turnberry did as the greens were smaller with danger pretty much everywhere. I started out brilliantly, playing the first 4 in -1, but then turned into the wind - into and off the right - and immediately lost a ball playing for too much wind on the hardest hole, which I'd have bogeyed anyway. Putting again wasn't as good as it has been and I just haven't felt like I'm going to hole anything outside of 6 feet. Highlights were the first four holes, particularly feeling like DJ or Rory on the 4th, a good par on 7 (see below) and a good last four holes - bar another lost ball on 18...  http://www.gamegolf.com/player/benpage101/round/1072354 My par on the 7th - only swing I recorded was a really nice punch 5 iron from 170 into a strong breeze: 3rd tee: 'Secret' 6th green: Looking back on the 13th green: I get a few days' rest now before my last couple of rounds, both at Machrihanish Dunes. I've learnt a lot about my game playing these two rounds that I hadn't known beforehand. I find it really hard when I don't know the line and have to guess and commit to the shot far less. If I can see it though, it's generally fine. I need to sort the driving in the wind out as there's just no room for error - a slight mishit and a ball that would be safe is gone. Additionally, particularly at Turnberry, I need to stop overthinking things. Occasionally I'd find myself trying to hit a 7 iron with the ball miles back in my stance to deloft it, aiming way left to compensate and just should have hit what I felt comfortable with and taken the hit with the wind. My putting has to get better as well, particularly from range. So much fun though and I will definitely play Western Gailes again (probably more of a certainty than Turnberry) - I loved the course and the welcome you get was amazing.
    • Played better at Western Gailes yesterday and loved the course - very welcoming and had me thinking much more than Turnberry did as the greens were smaller with danger pretty much everywhere. The main thing I've taken away from this trip though is that I need to control my driver in the wind better. A lot of times, it was definitely the play and my second shot was excellent, but I lost too many going with the wind, which probably wouldn't have been too bad without it. Partial wedges were really good again and approach play was generally alright. I started out brilliantly, playing the first 4 in -1, but then turned into the wind - into and off the right - and immediately lost a ball playing for too much wind on the hardest hole, which I'd have bogeyed anyway.

    • Lake Mead. It's down 150' +/-, and still losing about 5' every year. 
    • Well the head of the pros looks quite steady in the horizontal movement. I just want to emphasize that swing in a barrel and steady head can harm your swing especially if your swing is already good. 
    • Sounds similar, I have never heard any one with this swing thought just hope it's not a one time fluke.It makes sense though if your belly button follows your club head all the way back and through with arms connected to body you can't get ahead or behind with your swing , if  that make sense , don't have to think of anything else it just happens naturally perfect rythem  and a nice draw I also visualize the swing path and try to keep club head on that path
