They say: The golf-grip is a small pocket friendly product that allows the golfer to achieve the perfect grip position. It is a unique tool that can be used on any club in the golfers' bag. Designed in conjunction with several PGA golfers the golf-grip was tried and tested on hundreds of golfers of all abilities. Consistent use is found to promote 'muscle memory' allowing the golfer, with practice and time, to achieve the perfect grip - without assistance.

Spend a little time researching the perfect golf grip & you will find many books, articles and videos from some of the most prominent golf industry professionals. They all seem to agree, the grip is one of, if not the most important aspects of a golfers' game - the first thing to get right. Such an important part of the game should have a specifically tailored training aid - hence golf-grip was born.

I say: There is a crazy statistic that says at least 90% of all golfers grip their golf clubs incorrectly, and I am one of them. My left hand sits a little weak on the club, and always has done. It's a fault I've always found hard to correct but with this training aid I really could get my hands into the right position with ease, training me to get the perfect golf grip.

The device was simple to attach to the shaft of the golf club and then slide up onto the grip. But I had some difficulty getting it to sit over my thicker Winn grips and ended up putting it on my wedge which had a thinner grip.

The Golf Grip has a very clear alignment line that helps you centralise it on the club. It was also very comfortable to hold. My only other criticism is the size of the finger imprints, which were quite a bit bigger than my hands. It would be nice if they made a ladies/junior version of the golf grip to accommodate those of us with more petite hands and smaller thumbs.
