Can new grips give you more distance?
Sounds like a great marketing question by one of the grip manufacturers doesn't it?
Today we regripped Shaun Greenwood's clubs with the new Golf Pride CP2 grips and after his round called in the shop to ask why he's just it all his clubs around 10 yards further!
Sounds impossible? Absolutely not! When talking to Shaun on why this could happen, I explained that when a grip is only slightly worn or slippy, the natural reaction is to hold the club a little tighter. This tightness causes tension, this can then cause a serious loss of clubhead speed and control during your swing.
If your unsure about your grips, or would like some advice, please call in and have a chat.
