How to Get the Right Size Golf Grip
The wrong size grip is one of many things that can negatively affect your golf swing. Finding the right size grip is easy. While having the right grip won't turn you into Tiger Woods, it can improve your game.
Check your glove size
Start by checking your glove size. Here is a general guide to determine the grip size you need based on your glove size.
- Men’s X-Large glove = Midsize to Jumbo grip
- Men’s Large glove = Standard to Midsize grip
- Men’s Medium glove = Standard
- Men’s Small glove = Undersize to Standard
- Women’s Large glove = Undersize to Standard
- Women’s Medium glove = Undersize
- Women’s Small glove = Junior to Undersize
Check your fingers
Another way of determining your grip size it to first grip the club in your normal playing position. Then look at your left hand. Your fingertips should be barely touching the palm of your hand if the grip is the correct size. If there is a gap between your fingers and the palm, you need a smaller grip. If your fingers are digging into your palm, you need a larger grip.
The best way to know which size is right for you is to just try it. Find a pro shop that will allow you to test different size grips. Test different sizes until you find the size that helps you hit the straightest and longest. That will be the correct grip for you.
