Golf Pride’s latest grips: Z Grip Align, Tour Velvet Plus4, and Tour SNSR (2019 PGA Show)

Published

on

Golf Pride’s latest lineup of grips for 2019 — the Z Grip Align, Tour Velvet Plus4, and Tour SNSR — will be available to purchase from March.

Z Grip Align

The Z Grip Align features a brushed cotton cord texture (as found in the original Z Grip), which aims to control moisture management, and Golf Pride have combined this feature with Align Technology. The Align Technology in the Z Grip Align seeks to provide golfers with consistent hand placement through a raised ridge on the back of the grip.

The firm grip on the Z Grip Align ( STD 50.5g, MS 59g) is designed to offer players maximum feedback on each shot.

Tour Velvet Plus4

Golf Pride’s Tour Velvet Plus4 features a more durable rubber and softer feel, which aims to provide both comfort and moderate feedback to players. With its larger outside diameter, the Tour Velvet Plus4 seeks to create the feeling of building up the grip with four extra wraps, while the reduced taper on this grip looks to provide players with excellent feel.

With the Tour Velvet Plus4, the tighter pattern, combined with the increased traction is designed to ensure a player’s hands don’t slip, even in poor conditions.

Tour SNSR

The Tour SNSR features a slightly refined pistol shape and comes in a 104cc, as well as a 140cc. The rubber on the Tour SNSR is 40 percent softer than any other Golf Pride putter grip, which aims to offer players the ultimate amount of feel on their stroke.

The grip’s broad paddle front is designed to aide both hand placement and face alignment, while the larger geometry in the upper hand is designed to help players lock in their grip to create a more consistent stroke.

The Golf Pride Z Grip Align, Tour Velvet Plus4 and Tour SNSR are all set to be released on March 1.

Additionally, GolfWRX learned some Tour Velvet 360 and MCC Plus4 grips will feature Arccos integration. We expect more information on the collaboration ahead of the early summer release.

Forum Thread of the Day: “Ball in the thick rough – what club to use?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from jjfcpa who asks fellow members what their preferred choice of club is when their ball is in thick rough. A variety of irons and hybrids are mentioned by our members who delve into the discussion of course management.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • RainShadow: “For me, that sot would be a 7 iron, open the face a little and play a runner up to the front of the green. Open face will help a bit with getting stuck in the grass.”
  • golfgirlrobin: “Club choice depends on whether you’re willing to accept a bogey or whether you insist on making double.”
  • ChipNRun: “I would try a hinge and hold action. Take a half swing with plenty of hinge action and punch down on the ball with limited follow-through. Use the big muscles of the shoulders – you don’t want to hurt yourself trying to muscle it. Probably choose something between a PW and a 7i. You’ll need to hold firmly with L hand, so the grass doesn’t wrap around the hosel and deloft the club face.”
  • kcd38: “If it is 200 plus from the green and a decent lie, hybrid. If it is less than 200 from the green and sunk down a little, I usually go with my 8 iron and play the face slightly open knowing the grass will grab the hosel and shut the face. Definitely need some speed to get out of the thick stuff.”
