Why do the openings of the Lamkin grips always curl backwards like the pic of the Black UTX grip?

That's what happens when a shaft O.D tapers down under the grip, and the installer doesn't build them up enough to create a more constant size under the grip.  In other words, the section under the end of the grip is too small.

Basically make sure the tape runs all the way to within about 1/8" of the end of the grip, to help prevent this

At his swing speed playing PING woods seems odd. They've never made the lowest spin heads. But I guess the contract $$$ must suffice haha.
i15, i20, i25, G30 LS Tec, G LS Tec, G400 LS Tec...

Not to mention, high SS doesn't necessarily mean high spin. There are two lower spinning models right now in the PING lineup than the G400 Max, so I think Tony will be ok with a PING driver.

Show me another player of his strength playing PING woods...minus Bubba*

Cameron Champ and That high school kid with 190 ball speed that played last week
...and Scott Strohmeyer...stood beside him many times on range in Auburn...guys at Sanderson Farms said he was the longest they had ever played with!

Found my answer, I think, by a quick Google search. So. I know Accra does do custom paint jobs for general public. Anyone know if there are any restrictions and/or the criteria?

Thanks much!!

On the Accra custom finishes for the TZx shaft, there aren't really any restrictions.  They have a "stock" color palette of custom colors, but I can literally give them any Pantone color number and they can have the paint matched exactly to that color.  Back when Nike was using the Blue/Volt color scheme, I had a few TZx shafts made for Nike players that perfectly matched the Nike colors based on the Pantone color number which I was able to get from the advertising company that did all the Nike website/print ads.  You also have your choice of a glossy clear coat or matte finish, as well as custom laser etch options for a nickname, favorite saying etc.  Accra builds great shafts and their customization options are really unmatched.

Pro's with huge swing speed are concerned about hitting fairways, not eaking out more distance with the lowest spin possible.  Ping G series drivers are about forgiveness with reasonably low spin.  A great compromise for guys like Finau and Buba.

This !
Nothing more frustrating than hitting a good drive just to see it finish in the bunker/rough at the opposite side of the fairway because of too much roll !
For those guys it's managing misses and having a predictable max distance.

I bet he uses the Piretti putter at least for a little longer. He played extremely well with it this past week.

Really cool 15min-ish interview with Tony Finau talking about his new bag of Ping clubs:


Driver: Ping G400 MAX - he said he was hitting it 8-10yd longer than the G driver he was using before. Said he switched because Daniel Summerhays let him use his and he asked Ping for one. They said they had already sent him one 2 weeks ago. It was in his sons room. Carry distance at sea level is 300-305. Arizona is 312-315. 2200 to 2700 spin is his target range. He said his stock swing is around 75%. 85g X ACCRA shaft. Fairly even stiffness through the shaft.

Looks like he has a new bag now to replace that duct taped Nike bag now too

Ping has already made him a copy of his Piretti. It will be interesting to see what happens!

That will be interesting.  Front page says 11 club minimum deal- that's new for Ping isn't it?
