I recently bought a new set of irons and I need them to be gripped because I have big hands. The local pro/ my instructor told me I need bigger grips because small grips cause a change in my swing. My question is what size, and or brand, should I go with? I'm 17 years old and probably will grow some more, if that changes anything. Thanks for the help.

here's a general size chart. i would wear an XL and i use midsize pure grips. the brand and grip style will be personal depending on firmness and tackiness so you should try out several different kinds. but you will deffinently want to try the midsize or jumbo grips

ugh, I wear a medium glove and was told I was between a mid and jumbo. Is that possible? I didn't think I was a mid size and asked many time at different stores but was told and measured mid sized. So annoying I guess when I go for a new driver I will ask for a club fitting. Going to be so pissed to have all my clubs re-done if that is the case.

Usually a Club Fitting shop has a sample of their grips.   You should try different size of their samples before regripping your irons.

Also a club fitter can use a Standard size grip and make it thicker by using more tapes.

a good rule of thumb to see if you have the proper size is if your lower hand (right for righty) middle and ring finger barely touches the pad of your palm under the thumb. if your nails or fingers dig in and feels like you could be holding the club too tight, they are too small. if the fingers are too spread from the palm and your release motion feels restricted, they are too big.

Your best bet is to get fitted.

A good club fitter will fit your grip first and everything else last. Go visit your local golf shop. Ask the PGA pro there to give you 2 minutes of his time.

You can print a measuring tool on the lamkin website, that helps you decide on the correct size !  I treated myself to their Crossline Tour Navy Blue grips.  Installed them myself on my Mizuno irons to replace the old GP tour velvets.  Couldn't be happier !  Really no contest between the two !

A registered Pro in any shop should be able to suggest something for you. I wear a Large glove but have never liked the feel of Mid-Sized or Over-Sized grips. Winn is my preferred grip but there are so many out there you will be sure to find one you like.

    • I did that once to a Ti Bubble II driver. I assume it was a manufacturing defect.
    • So you weren’t able to listen to Death Metal for 40 hours?
    • Lie can be affected by set up, but it is really impact position that is key. The shaft is actually bending down slightly at impact. So the head is slightly flattened with respect to the shaft. If you set up too close or too far from the ball, it can vary the head position at impact. One trick I use at set up is to let my right arm hang free. If I can then move it to the club without moving it in or away from my body, then my set up is in the right spot.
    • I live in close proximity to Browns fans, so Manziel is still one of those names that stirs things up.  But absolutely. If golf can give him a direction in life, that's fantastic. Maybe he only ever competes for a club championship at the local golf club, but if it gives him a reason to get out of bed in the morning that might be more important.  I know some people with issues. One commonality is that they don't have that something to be passionate about.
    • I actually think he's an okay guy. He has his demons and his issues just like anyone else. I don't think he's inherently a "bad person" in any way. I wish him all the best in his pursuit. My guess is he'll never make a PGA tour event, but good for him to have a goal and a dream that's worth pursuing. There are a million worse things he could be trying to do.
