Tour Velvet questions

8 posts in this topic

Every start of a season I like many get all my clubs re-gripped. Here is my dilemma. I used to use multi compounds a few years back in mid-sized. Grips are a bit too expensive for my liking now. I went to VDR reds with 2 wraps. They are very difficult to find as of now. I than tried Tour Velvet ribbed and hated them. Very uncomfortable. I now use the Golf Pride niions organelles color. This season I think I want to re visit mid size grips and was thinking of the Tour Velvets non ribbed. I know there are a few older threads about tour Velvets. Was wondering if anyone could give me feedback on tour Velvets. Are the regular Velvets better feeling than the ribbed ?

I haven't actually ever used the ribbed version on a club but I have felt them in the shop and I don't like them at all. The normal tour velvets are classic and it's hard not to like them... Also if you have an adjustable driver that you need to turn the shaft for make sure you get the 360 version so you don't have any issues in different positions.

Thanks for the info on the VDR grips. I have actually had cross lines at one point. I didn't really care for them. Not sure I will go the online route for grips. I think I may put a few Tour Velvets on my driver 3 wood hybrid and 7 iron to test out during the winter. I still may consider the multi coms. But the price is just not going to work for me.

I put Tour Velvet mid size on my driver, 3 wood, 20 degree hybrid, and 7 iron. Not sure I like the mid size. I normally used 2 wraps under my grips. Is it possible that I am just not use to them yet? Only hit for 30 minutes with them. I will see how I hit with them tomorrow.

If they feel to fat, try stretching the grips before you install them. This will make them longer and slightly narrowed, thinner.

The grips you have installed, may be removed using compressed air.

You may need to take the clubs to Goldsmith or a store which has capabilities to remove them.

Call and ask if they can remove the grips.

Or, cut them off and replace them. It's only the loss of a couple of grips and chalk it up to 'experimental trial'

After cleaning the grips off last night and letting them dry I took them to the hitting bays today and was a lot more comfortable and hitting solid shots.

I have been hitting some push slices with my irons. The problem is the contact feels very good and flight looks good. Would a mid size grip add to a push slice or is it my swing mechanics and grips have nothing to do with it.

    • Just a typo. Worth reading the article though.
    • My goalsfor the year are three fold but they all have the number 50. Between April 15 and October 15. 1. Play 50 rounds  2. Driving Range Practice 50 times 3. Dedicated putting/chipping session 50 times To get me in the spirit of things I'm reading a book on Father Son Tom Morris and The Greatest Game Ever Played.   I'm going to be buying this putter because I have a hand tremor, this putter was designed for that which should help my game astronomically.      https://www.biomechsports.com/golf/   Last year I also started dialing in my wedge game by buying a Cleveland 52 56 and 60 degree wedge.  If you have never used a 60 degree wedge you have to try it .  It has changed my short game incredibly.  I also have a good teacher to go to so here's hoping for a great season.   Join me me on my quest for 50.
    • So today I was luck enough to play golf in February in Wisconsin. I changed my irons, 3w, and hybrid going into this season.  I haven't posted much since October that will be changing.  My wife and I bought a house which is a awesome yet a pain in the ass all at the same time.  On Halloween (my birthday) our furnace wouldn't work and on christmas eve a big piece of ice fell off our roof and smashed our A/C unit.   Those issues plus some other remodeling has kept me off TST and completely away from golf.  I played in a scramble on 10/23/16.  Haven't picked up a club until Saturday since that outing (well except to move them from our apartment to our house). I will hopefully be playing a similar amount as last year and working on improving my swing.  I will be getting a updated swing on here once we get some more good weather.  It looks like it will be back into the 30's in a few days. This was my round today. http://www.gamegolf.com/player/Jakester23/round/1336229 I felt pretty good other than a few swings.  Its pretty cool to get 2 rounds of golf in already this year. 
    • We've discussed how bogus the "timing" thing is in other threads… but it doesn't take a genius to figure out that a few mm swinging at 80 MPH or whatever is not going to amount to much "time" to "square" the clubface. Offset works because it tends to make people aim the clubface to the left. They line up the toe and the hosel, and the clubface points left.
    •   Haven't done this in a while... here's my current swing with 6 iron Haven't kept a legit handicap, but first three rounds this year have been +3, +4, +2   what i'm working on: 1. shortening my backswing in order to stay more connected going forward 2. more side tilt in the downswing/getting the bottom of my swing forward to eliminate that unsightly flippy action and lower ball flight 3. eliminating the early extension just before impact... which should straighten itself out once I take care of #2.   any advice appreciated gents!
