At BestGrips, we're dedicated to hand making our leather golf grips and leather putter grips here in Texas. If a MicroPerf or Classic Leather Golf Grip or Leather Putter Grip shows "out of stock", don't fret! A new batch is right around the corner, unless it's a Limited Edition Grip, like the Augusta Leather or Patriotic Leather Golf Grip, which, once SOLD OUT, are gone until the next year.
Six years ago, we had the idea of a limited run grip in a special color way we wouldn't be able to exactly replicate. That grip, the BG Green Best Club Grip (the original name for the Classic), launched a tradition that continues to the day. We now do a special run of grips three times a year: green leather in the Spring, blue leather in the Summer and red leather in the Winter.

BestGrips Genuine Leather Golf Grip sizes and shapes are a little different than your run of the mill rubber golf grip. Because our leather grips feature real moisture management solutions, we don't rely on the aggressive taper most rubber grips use to keep the club in your hands. Our taper, which we call the ProTaper, equates to about a 3 wrap increase in the bottom section, or where your dominant hand is placed on the grip. This reduces taper shape has become so popular, even a few rubber grip manufacturers are offering it as an option.
As far as sizing goes, there's a few factors you must always pay attention to when deciding on size. First, the size of the butt of the shaft and it's taper where the grip will go. Shafts can range from .580" to .625" and it's important to both know the size of your shafts and to make them as close to each other as possible with tape before installing your grips. Second, how your hands grip the club will influence the size of grip that gives you the best results. If you grip the club more with your fingers, you'll be better off with a smaller grip than we recommend below. If you grip the club with more of your palm, you'll be better off with a larger grip than we reccomend.
The BestGrips Leather Golf Grip Size Chart is below where the differences in each of our grips is explained and we recommend a grip based on the golf glove you use (or used if you're switching to the MicroPerf). Our Undersized plays just slightly smaller than a 60R rubber grip, our Standard plays slightly smaller than a midsize rubber grip, and our Oversized plays like an OS rubber grip. However, there's no standardized grip sizing in golf and no two rubber grips play alike.

Since our handmade leather golf grips and leather putter grips are batch made, expect slight variations in shades over time. This gives every run of grips their own character. Above is our two flagship grips: the MicroPerf Leather Golf Grip and the Major Leaguer Putter Grip. If you are new to BestGrips, then you're also new to genuine leather cowhide and these are the two best golf grips to start out with.
BestGrips traces its roots back to a long range session in the Spring of 2003 and the need for a better golf grip. That quest culminated with creation of our Handmade in the USA Genuine Leather Golf Grip. Now we chose the name Best Grips for two simple reasons: the Performance and Feel of our Leather Golf Grips.
The natural properties of leather make it much more suitable for hand contact than synthetic and other natural materials. You just can't beat the touch of a natural material. BestGrips then uses these game changing benefits with our game enabling club grip and putter designs to hand make each leather golf grip and leather putter grip in the USA.Learn more
