Ping Grip Sizes, Selecting the correct grip for you.

By on February 16, 2017

If you have read our blog on choosing the correct grip you will know that grip size is an important factor in making sure you get the most out of your golf clubs and aid in hitting a straight ball.

Ping, like the colour code they use for lie angles, also offer a unique way of measuring and establishing if you require a different size grip. Ping grip sizes are currently coloured by 6 choices with “white” being standard size for men and “red” being standard size for women. If you follow through the chart you can quickly determine what colour would best suit you.

To use the chart you need two measurements.  The overall length of your hand along with your longest finger. Make sure when you measure your hand it is from the crease of your wrist to the tip of the longest finger. If you then interpret your data on the chart you will find the colour that matches your size.

Ping also offer a variety of custom grips, however their standard option is the ID8 360 made to the highest quality and offer great feel. ID8 grip is also available in a full cord version. The added cored stitched into the rubber, is designed to give you a higher lever of grip control in the hand, however this option is not for everyone, it’s a matter of personal preference and feel.

We can’t stress enough the importance in getting yourself correctly custom fitted and by taking the steps above you will make sure that you are able to play your best golf when using Ping. Please also take the time to check your length and lie angle in Understanding the Ping Colour Chart.

    Hello
    I am right handed, longest finger 3 3/4″, hand 8 1/4″. I have eleven Ping Zing irons currently fitted with standard Golf Pride grips.
    Most shots tend to drift away to the right.
    Your chart indicates Ping gold grips – if you agree, please quote me for the eleven grips, tapes and postage to France.
    Regards
    Ken

    Hi,
    when I measure my hand I am right on the border line between white and Aqua grips. Should I go for the white or Aqua? my natural golf shot is a slight Fade.

      Hi John, thank you for your message, White is standard size, I would consider going for this colour grip, as a slightly bigger grip in the hand could help to combat your fade.
