Specifically, a grip that's too small (one that allows your hands to overlap too much) promotes extra hand action and commonly leads to pulling the ball. A grip that's too large (one you can't comfortably place your top thumb over the other with a standard overlap hold) limits wrist pronation, stifles shot distance, and can cause you to slice or push the shot. Use the Interactive Grip Selector to find your perfect fit.
Beyond the proper size, consider your weather conditions, the firmness of the grip and the smoothness of the grip’s surface pattern. Ultimately, you want to choose the grip that feels best in your hands. When a club is in your hands, you should feel confident and connected to the clubhead. Check out our grips for descriptions and photo images, representing a variety of sizes, textures, materials and sizes.
