Doing new grips for the first time this winter, posting here to follow this one.
Was leaning towards the Golf Pride tour wraps for price and looks (right color of blue) but appreciate everyone's comments here to help me with the decision.
I was the one who mentioned basketball. Back in the 1990s scores in the NBA started getting up around 118 points so they allowed zone defenses and it dropped them back down to 90 - 100 points for 48 mins. And considering it's a fast moving game that's good by me. College games are usually in the 60s for 40 mins which would be around 77 for 48 mins.
But greens? I've played on some really nice greens and some really bad greens. Most courses up here have poa annua greens and they get nasty in the afternoons ... bumpy... I've seen courses somehow control just how bumpy they get. The groundskeepers do something with the way they cut them and keep them smooth and rolling true. There's nothing more frustrating than to have the line read correctly and have the ball hit a tuft of poa and get knocked out of it's path just enough to miss going in. Or unevenness in the surface where it's fast then hits a spot where the ball just dies, but if you putt the ball hard enough to get past that patch, you're dead. It's greenskeeping. Leave the holes the same size and improve surface care.
