How to change a golf grip like a professional
By mustang6560 on 6/22/12
Callaway posted a pretty clever video of its European Tour players trying to change a golf grip.

It should not surprise you that players like Colin Montgomerie look like a fish out of water at the grip station because, well, when you're rich, you can't be bothered with changing your own grips.

If I had a proper "grip station", I could easily change a grip in under a minute. However, the space in my garage where I change my grips is not very high tech, so it takes me about three minutes per grip. And that's when I'm not distracted.

Pretty funny.

The key for me is having enough solvent both inside the grip and on the tape. Too little and the darn grip will stick half way on.

Too funny! I just got myself a vise and changed my grips for the first time. It can be frustrating however patience and determination can make it fun!!!

I just lost a bunch of respect for pro golfers. :(

Use PureGrips and all this grip tape nonsense goes away. Air-installed grips FTW!

I started using compressed air to install my grips this year. I'll never go back to the two-sided tape / solvent.

PureGrips PurePro only on my sticks. Tape and solvent never again.

Funny video... and when I can consistently stick a 215-yard shot three feet from the hole from a downhill lie in the rain, I'll start criticizing pro golfers for not being able to install grips as well as I can.
