Spotted: Lamkin Z5 Tour Taper grips



At the 2017 AT&T Byron Nelson, we spotted new “Z5 Tour Taper” grips from Lamkin, which are designed to encourage lighter grip pressure to ultimately create more distance, control and consistency, according to the company.

To accomplish this, the grips are built with a larger diameter at the bottom of the grips, helping to stabilize your lower hand. You’ll notice in the photo below that the bottom of the grip has a more built-up look than a standard grip.


Also, like its Z5 grips, the Z5 Tour Taper grips use five different grip sections to maximize feel and performance. They have a soft cord in the upper sections, “high-traction finger locks” in the middle section, and a micro texture in the lower sections that’s relatively smoother. For golfers who want a more consistent feel from the top of the grip to the bottom, Lamkin suggests installing them “logo down,” or in other words, flipping the grip 180 degrees.

For a tacky feel and shock absorption at impact, the grips are made with Lamkin’s familiar ACE material. The Z5 Tour Taper grips will be available for $8.99 starting on May 26.

    I like these quite a bit. Currently trying the Z5 grip as an alternative to my NDMC and liking them (although I think they need more prominent cord). I use the Plus 4 grips on my wedges for improved feel so these might be a good option as well. Really like the color scheme too. And the best part is they’re $2 less than the NDMC version.

    Riding Golf Pride’s coattails on this concept… Besides, if these are so ugly why wouldn’t I just get a grip I like the looks and feel of and then just add 4-5 layers of tape to bottom hand?

Brooks Koepka’s Winning Outfit: 2018 U.S. Open



Brooks Koepka played like he dressed on Sunday at Shinnecock Hills for the final round of the U.S. Open; his outfit was athletic, well put together, boring with a bit of flash (those shoes!!), and most importantly, it got the job done.

See the golf clubs and shafts Brooks used to win.

A great representative of the new age of golf, Koepka has the frame of a baseball player, and he’s not afraid to accentuate it with tight-fitting polos and an athletic look. For Sunday, he chose a white-on-gray-on-gray look that was understated, but clean — just like his scorecard. He really made the Nike Golf Tour Premiere PE shoes, with hits of electric orange, the star. Check out the details on his full outfit below.

  • Hat: Nike AeroBill Classic99
  • Shirt: Nike Zonal Cooling polo
  • Belt: Nike Stretch Woven
  • Pants: Nike Flex
