Re-Grip It and Rip It

We have been running guest blog posts brought to you from some of the best experts in the field – our golf representatives. Today’s blog is brought to you by Andy Paisal with Global Tour Golf.

As the golf season is upon us, hold off on the books, videos and possibly even your golf lessons and get your clubs re-gripped. As your clubs rest during the off season, your grips are getting a little harder and a little slicker. Grips in this condition will generally cause you to grip it a little tighter which can cause any type of poor shot that you can imagine. Here are a few ideas:

1) How to choose a grip:

The easy answer is to find a grip that feels good but with undersized, standard, midsized, oversized, multi-compound, lightweight, I think you get the point. Here is the simple answer.

Ask your local “Club Repair Professional” (CRP). These folks get to see all the new product first and are educated on all the new materials. If you are in the Haggin Oaks area you are fortunate to have CRP, Dan Mask, who may be if not the best then certainly one of the best in all of Northern California. I often consult with him with my own grip questions.

2) Pricing:

Do not and I repeat do not buy a grip based on price!!! Just like any other category, some components simply cost more than others and these costs are passed along to you the consumer. Once again, consult your CRP.

In recapping, find a grip that feels good in your hands but more importantly consult your Club Repair Professional and get the new season off to a good start.

Please leave your comments here with any grip questions and I will do the research and get back to you with the correct answers.

Happy Golfing,
