Golf Drivers: Finding The Right Grip
The grip for your club can make all of the difference in the world in your golf game.  By starting off your hole with a long drive down the middle of the fairway you will have begun your game off on the right foot.  However if your grip does not feel right or you feel as if the handle is slipping as you swing your driver then it may not be the club that you should be considering replacing, but more along the lines of the grip could be wrong.  You have different options to consider when you are looking into the different types of grips for your clubs.

Leather Versus Rubber

When you are looking to decide what type of grip you want for your clubs then you need to consider if you prefer a leather or a rubber grip.  It is completely up to you as to which of the two you want.  It is how it feels in your hand, the way that it stays on the handle, as well as whether it will stay on the club or not.  Another option that you may want to consider in the department of grips would be cord.  The major benefit to this type of grip is that it does not become slippery when it is wet where as with the leather and rubber options they do.  So consider the feel as well as the comfort when you choose your grip material.


Consider that you have found a club that you are absolutely in love with and the grip is starting to fall apart.  However the rest of the club in still in pretty good shape and you just do not want to part with it yet.  Well you do not have to.  In many cases and at many golf shops the option to regrip your club is there.  They will offer to provide the type of grip that you want as well as the style and length to fit your needs.  You may not be able to get the same grip that you had previously for your club, but they will do their best to match if that is what you want.  It may be as simple as finding the right supplier and manufacturer to meet your needs.
