Golf Club Grips

in Grip
a) The grip is the golfer's only contact with the club. The grip is in direct tactile contact with the golf club, which in turn affects the muscle tension. The muscle tension is an important part of any clubfitting session. The function of the style and type of the grip is to provide the golfer with a pleasing feel when holding on to the club, which will result in the golfer using the least amount of grip pressure to secure the club during the swing. The lighter the golfers grip pressure, the higher their swing speed can be from a much more free movement and release of the club during the swing. The grips need to allow the golfer to control the club without excessively tightening the hand. When you excessively tighten your hands, you develop alligator arms and your swing becomes short and cramped.
b) Fitting the Golfer to the Best Grip Size: The recommended grip size is based on the golfers actual hand size. The good rule of thumb is the size of glove:

Size of GloveSize of Grip
Small/Small CadeUndersize
ML/Cadet MLRegular
Large/Cadet LargeMidsize
XL/Cadet XLOversize

However this chart is just a recommendation and will not tell you whether this grip is going to really feel good to that particular golfer and reduces the pressure to hold on the club. That is something you can only get from a back and forth here, try this one, how is that feel interaction between the clubmaker and the golfer using examples of different grip sizes mounted on shafts to obtain a more realistic feel for the grip size.
c) Grips tend to oxidize, harden, get slick and lose their tackiness and traction over time. We suggest you to repace your golf grips often, about every 6 months.
The need for increased shot control and shot shaping, which blade design encourages, becomes the more important technology for a good wedge design and good golf club wedges.
The object of the golf game is to hit the ball straighter and farther, so golf clubs sets designed to do that are called GAME IMPROVEMENT golf clubs.
