Anyone have any idea what kind of grip that is on Jack Nicklaus' club in Part 5?
[/quote]

I asked his caddy if I could shoot Jack's grip up close. He wasn't receptive to my request at all. Said Jack still uses the same type of grips he used for years. I think they are Lamkin slip on leather (the slip on leather part is correct, not 100% sure on the Lamkin part).

Who is playing the Topflite Intimidator woods?
[/quote]

I think that bag belongs to Bernhard Langer's daughter.

If memory serves, Trevino had a hand in designing those woods.

Yes they are Christina Langer's fairway woods.

Jack looks dorky in those shoes. Just not right for him.

At 70+ yrs of age, you go for comfort and not worry about whether someone thinks you look dorky.

I’m pretty sure Jack cannot and will not ever look dorky on the links.

Several years ago Jack endorsed Griptec rubber grips.

I believe Star Grip is the successor company to Griptec.

Any chance those aren't leather at all, but rather Star rubber grips? They have a flat finish wrapped rubber grip that has no perforations. At one time they even infused the scent of leather into the rubber, but I'm not sure they're still doing that.

Lamkin hasn't made leather grips for many years, and I don't know of any others besides Grip Master.

I blew it up and it looks like a Lamkin grip. This looks like the L in Lamkin to me.

Saw a great video of several players and their sons/daughter. It showed a side by side video of the player's swing along with their kid's and most of them were identical! From the tempo to the follow through, really fun to see Qass Singh swinging exactly like Vijay and DLIII's son having the same swing as dad. Pretty cool.

Odd question and probably silly...Is the pro necessarily the father? Could Rickie Fowler bring his dad out? Or Paula Creamer bring her dad?
[/quote]

The Father has had to have won a major championship and can bring son, stepson, daughter, or stepdaughter, grandson or grandaughter. (I believe)

They added the Players this year and that's why Fred Funk was eligible to replace Stockton's when they had to withdraw for family reasons.

I'm pretty confiedent that Jack hasn't played with leather grips (except his putter) since the mid 90s and that he's never used a slip-on leather grip. They were still made with a paper underlisting by Jack Wulkotte at that time.

He then switched to a Griptec wrap grip. After they went out of business, he switched to a lamkin, which I think was the perma-wrap. I think he originally used the ones with the gold piping and no perforation.

The grips in those pictures are definitely lamkin wraps. I bet they're lamkin perma wraps but this time (obviously) all black. And, they look to have the perforations.
