How do your determine core size when regripping clubs?
Don, Tucson, Arizona, USA
You measure the shaft butt diameter. If you do not have calipers, check the manufacturer’s specs for this information. Then, for a standard size grip, choose a grip core size that matches the shaft diamter. For example, if the shaft diameter is .600″, a 60 core grip makes a standard size grip. The addition of masking tape over the shaft creates a larger grip diameter at the rate of just slightly less than +1/64″ oversize per grip of typical masking tape. Calipers are required for exact accurate sizing.
