Editor’s picks: 5 great grip options to freshen-up your clubs this golf season
I’m a little finnicky about the grips on my golf clubs, because after all, how can you not be? It’s the only connection you have to the golf club during your swing. The size, the shape, the feel; it all affects your physical and emotional connection to your golf club, and your ability to swing the club with some consistency.
And so, before the start of every golf season, I have a little tradition: I regrip my entire set of clubs. You can do it yourself relatively easily or bring them to a golf store and pay them to do it for you, but either way, it’ll give your sticks a nice, fresh feel. You should try it yourself, especially because we just stocked some good grip options in our GOLF.com pro shop.
Personally, I prefer a softer grip without many lines. Last season, I installed a set of the Golf Pride Tour Wrap MicroSuede. They’re a softer, tackier grip that wear surprisingly well for heavy users.

This year, I’m trying some WINN Dri-Tac Wrap Oversize in the grey version. They’re not as tacky but incredibly soft and comfortable. I wear a glove on the course, but these seem like a great option to consider for those who don’t.
Some golfers prefer a little ridge in the back of the grip, which can help promote clubface awareness and, therefore, improve your alignment. Golf Pride’s “ALIGN” tech features a raised ridge towards the back which is noticeable and helpful without being bothersome.

One slightly out-of-the-box grip I tried recently and was thoroughly intrigued by is Golf Pride’s “Plus 4” variation, which features a bulkier lower part to help golfers manage grip pressure and placement of their lower hand on the golf club.

And finally, another intriguing piece of grip tech is Lamkin’s fingerprint design, which features, a pattern of ridges to form a “micro-texture” without relying on cord.
