Going from standard to midsize will really screw you up!!!!
Go to your local club fitter and have you hands measured so you can get the proper grip for your clubs.
Chances are an extra wrap of tape will do the trick...or just new grips will get your feel back.
I just switched from standard to midsize. Every golf pro I talked to said that this would give me a fade/slice and it didn't. I'm a 6'4" guy with quite large hands. I am going to make this short. In my experience this was the best thing that I have ever done when it comes to golf equipment. The only thing the larger grips has done to the ball flight is maybe given me a draw. Hope this helps and sorry this is random writing.
I just re gripped my clubs2 days ago and stayed with standerd. I felt that the midsize grip felt better in my hand so I wanted to switch. The pro up at my golf course suggested not to. He said if you get a larger grip and you do not have the right hand size for it, the grip will not allow you to release the club. I didnt not want to pay to find out if that was true or not. So I stayed with standard size grips. Have they helped you at all, or do you notice any difference. Because I may try them next year when I regrip. Sorry this doesnt really answer your question.
I have not done this myself but i know the affects (i think). Thinner grips will turn over in your hands more creating more of a draw. Thicker grips will not turn over as much and create more of a fade. But these are the affects if you normally hit the ball strait. Thicker grips take away hand action and thinner grips promote hands. Hope this helps!
My game comes and goes, but it is not the equipment. Midsize may be the thing for you, might not.
I know a guy 60 something, went from standard to monster size grips, hits the ball pretty good.
I'm thinking of doing the same thing, so I'm very interested in what people think about changing grip sizes.
Bit the bullet and switched my driver and 3 wood to midsize grips. So far, it's been great. Prior to the switch, I was wildly inconsistent. Left with a huge hook, followed by a huge slice, hooks, slices, etc. The confusing part is that I did not do that with any other clubs in my bag.
After switching to midsize on the driver and 3 wood, I'm now more consistent with both. Just played my first 9 with the new grips, and I was either in the fairway or within a foot of the fairway on every hole. The range was consistent as well.
I'm 6'5" tall with large hands. Midsize is right for me. One thing to keep in mind. When you specify grip sizes, use specific sizes. Don't make the mistake I did and go by 2 or 3 extra wraps. If you do, your grip size will all depend on what tape the shop uses. For example, I have a set of DCI irons with standard grips and 2 extra wraps. Those grips are larger than my new MB irons with 3 extra wraps.
Next year, I will probably put midsize on all the clubs.
I have golfed for over 40 years now and still use the same grip size,but that being said, I have changed to a different style of grips.
I now use the New Decade grip by Golf Pride. I have found that this grip stays tacky longer, and the cording on it doesn't wear out a quickly as on other grips. Also I clean my grips after two rounds and that really helps. Being over 70 yrs. young and having some slight trouble with Arthur ( Arthritis) has not affected my grip all that much and these grips are just what the doctor ordered.
