Made by BestGrips in Texas
BestGrips is dedicated to making genuine leather golf grips and headcovers here in the USA. Our club and putter grips perform in all weather coditons and our covers are made to order to give you the ultimate slection of personalization and customization options.
We've been monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak since mid-January. While there are many unknowns about this virus, and the worldwide cases are still low, BestGrips is taking this threat seriously. While we always clean grips before packaging, we're expanding the level of that and closing BestGrips HQ to the public as of today.
Since our start, we've been committed to making our grips and covers in the US and we will continue production through this crisis. Order shipments will continue as long as FedEx and USPS remain operational. BestGrips is in the middle of the most ambitious build-up of inventory in our history and our current leather inventory is strong enough to comfortably limit the incoming shipment of supply and materials.
Until such time as the world ends, we will act as though it intends to spin on. Life is fragile, but our resolve and ability to adapt and survive are strong. We will overcome this and life will go on. In the meantime, take social distancing seriously, wash your hands and follow the CDC guidelines (here). We shall overcome this!
Tour Issue Our Way
While BestGrips doesn't pay players to use or endorse our products, we have our own spin on the gaudy, over logoed tour issue items you find in golf. Our Tour Issue Leather Putter Grip is a flavor of the month grip that features a different leather and stitch each month, engraved with our BestGrips Genuine Leather Golf Grips logo. Since you're repping the BestGrips logo at the bottom of the grip, we give you a discount versus our stock putter grips. Our spin on "pay for play."
Our Signature Grips
The MicroPerf Club Grip and Major Leaguer Putter Grip are our flagship grips. The MicroPerf brings real tackiness to your sticks, with our moisture-activated tack, ProTack. The Major Leaguer, made from the same leather used to stop professional baseball's fastballs, brings one of the most soothing and comfortable finishes to your putter grip. If you're new to BestGrips and leather, this is where we recommend you start.

Golf Grip Size Chart
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 recommend.
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 Undersize plays just slightly smaller than a 60R rubber grip, our Standard plays like a 58R rubber grip (meaning standard size on a .580 shaft) and our Midsize plays like a larger midsize rubber grip. However, there's no standardized grip sizing in golf and no two rubber grips play alike.

Our flagship club grip gets tacky when wet and the perforations give it a comfortable feel and slight texture.
Made from the same leather used to stop 100 mph fastballs in catchers' mitts, the Major Leaguer has a soft, yet firm velvety feel that is unmatched. Our most popular grip amongst OEM customers due to its uniqueness compared to other leathers.
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.
