My favorite grips
February 7, 2016
I bought a used club a couple of years ago and it had a Chamois Jumbo grip by Avon on it. I had plans to cut it off ASAP but then I after hitting the club with this grip I was most impressed by the feel of the grip, and the larger size just felt very right. I replaced all my grips with this one and have been very pleased.
Butch Harmon in one of our recent golf magazines said that 75% of golfers play grips that are too small. I believe it. My golf glove size is between medium and large so I don't have huge paws, but when I swing a club with regular sized grips now it feels like I am holding onto a bare shaft.
Think of it this way--if you swung a club with a huge grip on it, say the size of a toilet paper roll, that would be obviously too large. If you swung a club without a grip on it that is obviously too small. There is a size that lets you hold onto a club that provides maximum holdability with minimum grip effort. I think nearly everyone should at least try larger grips.
These grips have a great cushy feel, they wear like iron, and they are cheap. They are one of golf's best secrets.
