Interesting article on grip size
They did an experiment and the results tend to show that static fitting for grip size (hand/palm size chart) are not the right way to choose the grip size.
What do you think?
The last times I changed was always based on my hand size analysed by the fitter experience (= using the chart)

I was hoping that they should at least state if the grip is smaller or larger than standard size for most of the testers getting better results.

The proper grip is suppose to grip by the fingers, I think smaller grip would suit Asian like us.

Have you shake hands with European before? Their hands are much bigger than ours.
Just my thoughts.

In the grand scheme of things, i think grip size is not highest on the list of priorities. If you duck slice/hook all the time, probably want to work on that first :p
But yes, good sized grips gives you confidence, which is super important if you are fine tuning your game.
I used to have soft IOMIC's which was fine but then i changed to GP small multi-compound grips and i feel much more comfortable and confident, no diff to the score though.

of course the grip cannot change super hook over super slice.
But i do believe the grip size does help on "small" wrong trajectories (as does the lie adjustment).
and i concur on the confidence, having the good feeling when holding the clubs is important.
but as the article said, the feel was not a good criteria for the best results (neither was standard chart fitting)
in the end what they are saying that whatever the feel or standard size (small hands --> small grip), we need to try to know.
let's assume 15 sgd per grip+install * 14 clubs = 210 sgd - that's still a bit a consequent number no ?
But i never happen to see a "grip fitting" based on tryout on different grip sizes on your own set of club ... (or even another set)

What I do is that I fit my 8i,7i and 6i with 3 different grip sizes. After hitting it at range and play around of par 3, I think pick the most comfy and do the rest of the clubs.
Grip size is important to me so that I have one less issue in my mind.

I changed grips by myself . M60 butt n medium size but not all makers medium size grips are same in diameter.
another thing I did was I split a satay stick in half n tape it on the back line n then slip in the grip. It act as a rib . good for club face alignment n better gripping without using glove.

My personal experience is that changing of putter grip makes a darn lot of difference! Was on an original slim grip on my odyssey putter, then saw a very nice muzik starry design putter grip (much heavier) and thus changed to it. Man, all my putting feel was gone.. the swing weight became too drastically different and I started putting like shit. Ended up spending some more money to switch back to a boring looking black slim grip, and my putting feel all came back immediately!
