Anyone remember a Tour van video of someone regripping Tiger’s(?) clubs? Specifically, I am interested in how they determined the lengths of the different layers of tape to build up the bottom hand and reduce the taper.

    Definitely not that one. It was really good, I wish I could recall.

    Yes, pretty sure I remember it. It was a Golf Channel video on the Nike van. The guy talked about gripping Tiger's and Paul Casey's irons. Tiger uses a layer of masking tape and then grip tape on the irons, then just one layer of tape on the woods. Paul liked to build his up on the right hand so it had less taper.

    Thanks! That was exactly what I was looking for. Guess I’m trying out the “Casey grip” this weekend.

  • Are you going to be using 2" masking tape?

    I build up the bottom hand area (two wraps) strictly on my wedges. The trick is to build the lower area first, and then cover it with the double-sticky tape. If you put lower-hand tape on outside, it can come loose when you slip the grip on.
