I know I should have done this a while ago and were it not for a long injury layoff probably would have done it last season. I regripped my Driver and 3 wood.... with different grips. Midsize +2 layers for the driver and standard +4 layers for the 3 wood.
Yeah, I know that sounds crazy but I'm trying to work out what grip thickness suits me. I found that the so-called advice based on a) glove size, or b) finger and hand measurements doesn't "fit" me. Those recommendations have always been : Standard grip with 1 extra layer of tape. Nuts!
I've been more inconsistent since having the recommended size but believed it was just me being crap that was causing all the hooks and pushes.
Today was a revelation - I was seeing my soft draw again ( albeit not always) and I really felt that I had a more relaxed forearm - I wasn't "throttling" the birdie - if you know what I mean!
I appreciate that this was just ONE day and I need to see if the swing improvement holds up, but I'm already thinking ahead...and the question that comes up now is how do I make a record of the grip size that I like the best - for future reference. I know that pros ask how many layers of tape etc but I believe that this is also a problem as there are tapes of several different thicknesses. Is there anyone who can enlighten me further on the science of grips? Clubmakers especially!
Any advice or info greatly appreciated.
