Golf Grip Reviews:When I first started playing golf some 20 years ago I didn't know a thing about golf clubs, putters, or even how to hold the darn club. One of the first mistakes I made was accepting a hand me down set of clubs that lacked quality grips. I thought that my swing was causing all my problems when I first started and it turns out the grips were worn out and my hands were slipping from the clubs (I also didn't use a golf glove which didn't help either). One of my friends brought this to my attention after about 5 terrible rounds of golf so I decided to spend the $50 and get the clubs regripped. Almost instantly the clubs felt more secure and stable in my hands and my swing was less erratic since the club face was solid through contact and not sliding all over the place like before. Many amateurs don't even know what the grips should feel like, so the first thing we recommend of anyone is to make sure the grip size is right and that the grips are relatively new. Is one golf grip better than another? That's really up to the individual player to decide much like the style of irons you use or the brand of driver. It comes down to 'feel' and comfort.
