Tried something new. It worked.

So it was time to re-grip my clubs, and I wanted to try something a little different.  I read an article some time ago about Bubba Watson and how he likes to have rather built up grips, with less taper.  So I gave it a try.

I regripped several clubs, using a variety of techniques, sizes, and number of tape wraps.  After a very interesting range session, I've decided that this is what I like.  Midsized grip, 4 wraps for my low hand, and 1 wrap top to bottom.  It effectively takes a huge amount of the taper out of the club.  The end result is something I feel like I barely have to hold onto to put a mean swing on it, and I've picked up both yardage and consistency.  FWIW I have average sized hands, and I wear a size ML glove.  By standard 'fitting' I should be using a standard gripsize.

My point is simply this.  Try stuff, play around, and see what happens.  Also as a side note, if you put the grips on with masking tape instead of double sided tape, and blow them on/off with an air compressor, you can easily re-use the grips, and play with the tape without cutting it off every time.

When I regripped this fall, I went from standard to midsize. I measure at pretty much standard, but the softer Winn Dri-Tacs have helped in a couple of ways:

* Better grip pressure because of a softer feel.

* Better line on partial wedge shots.

* Less hand fidgeting at address.

And like Stumpy , on my wedges I put three extra wraps of tape under the bottom hand so I can choke down without having too narrow a grip.
