One inch goes a long way with Lamkin's wedge grips

Gary McCord, for Lamkin Grips
A 300-yard drive will travel exactly 10,800 inches. Yet, the effectiveness of that monster drive as it relates to your ability to score may come down to a much smaller measurement. One inch, in fact.

That one inch is a big part of the new Performance Plus 3GEN wedge grip offered by Lamkin Grips.

Taking the importance of 'choking up' for better control on wedge shots into account, Lamkin's Performance Plus 3GEN Wedge Grip is one full inch longer than other standard grips but has the same reduced taper. The end result leaves golfers much more space to gain better feel on short wedge shots and chips while avoiding the thin taper used on most grips that leaves space for fingers to shift and the swing to suffer.

The grips have two seamless 'buttons' spaced 1.5 inches apart at the base of the grip to help provide a landmark for golfers hoping to get the most out of their extended grip.

Consisting of Lamkin's proprietary 3GEN material, the Performance Plus Wedge grip comes in black and white and stays true to the quality expected from Lamkin's extensive line of grips.

If you're wondering just how much of an impact one additional inch on your wedge grip can make, watch the video above from golf commentator and Champions Tour player Gary McCord.
