I recently wrote a review about a pair of golf shoes and one of the main factors I talked about was the importance of good grip. Our golf swing relies on solid grip on our feet to ensure that we stay balanced and planted to the ground. It made me think that if shoes were so important for our feet then grips have to be just as important for our hands. Up until now I have used only the stock grips put on by the OEMs. Some have lasted longer than others and some, if not most, have not performed up to par through the various weather conditions. Not to mention that my hands sweat pretty good during the summer months so having a good grip on the club is crucial for me to ensure a solid connection to my club. After looking to see what was out there, I decided to think outside the box and found PURE grips.

Golf has always been an industry where products are continuously being re-invented to better the game, make the game more fun and make it easier to play. Different manufacturing techniques and materials are always being tested and refined to ensure the new technology is proven and welcome in the game of golf. Some of these materials are created in labs by mixing various elements together while other materials may be found in your own backyard. Luckily for the founders of Cork Tree Putter Grips, their backyard happens to be a 500 acre family owned cork plantation so the art of creating quality cork leather products didn't fall far from the cork tree.
