I would like to thank you. Your grips have definitely helped my game. They have been especially helpful to my 14-year-old son. He has a habit of putting his hands too far clockwise on the grip. The results are some ugly duck hooks. He's been playing my Nike Slingshots with the ProPlay grips and is noticing improvement. While he finds having a neutral grip a bit uncomfortable, he's noticing better ball flight and better contact. He's convinced that I need to give him the irons. LOL. I picked up some of the individual ProPlay grips this week at Edwin Watts and re-gripped his set.
Thank you for helping my game, and that of my son who is just learning the game. we're looking forward to a lifetime of enjoying this sport and thanks to the help of your grip system, we'll enjoy it even more.

I had visited a golf show early in the year and visited a booth called Pro Play. The first thing that caught my attention was this child in the booth holding a golf club perfectly. I spoke with Donna and she explained this amazing product.
Simply, it is a color-coded golf grip and glove that work together to help any golfer place their hands in the proper golf grip position by just matching markings on the glove to markings on the grip. The thumb of the glove has a dot that matches a dot on the golf grip as well as lines on the palm of the glove that match up with lines on the grip. By matching the markings, it automatically gives you the proper grip. I purchased all of the colored sizes to fit my Junior Golfers--from 8 to 12 years of age. As soon as I started my class and explained how the ProPlay Fitting System worked, the students picked up the glove that fit them and easily matched it to the proper grip (they new what club to pick up because of the matching colors). Quickly, their hands were positioned correctly on the club on their very first try!
As we all know, teaching the proper golf grip is one of the hardest things to teach; but with the ProPlay product, it didn't take me long to teach my students the proper golf grip. It helped us so much that the students in our Junior Golf Program Skills Competition came in 4th place against 40 teams. I can't wait to see how our students will perform next year. Thank you Donna and Pro Play for making golf fun for our students again.

We all know the negative effects that poor hand position can have on wrist hinge and clubface position in a students swing. We also know how difficult a grip change is for the student as they experience the awkwardness and discomfort of changing their old habits. Whenever we work on a students grip, the first thing we do is have them put on a ProPlay glove. The ProPlay glove helps them work through this difficult transition by giving them confidence that they are holding the club correctly, even if it may feel foreign to them. After using a ProPlay grip training in the Bay the student almost always asks to purchase one so they can continue to practice correctly at home and on the range.
“As a professional, I cannot stress hard enough how important the grip is. One out of 50 people I see grip the club correctly. The rest of them have their hands all over the place. They don’t understand that a good grip will promote good things to happen in the swing. When you use this system, it will give you the right grip and it will become automatic for you and great things will begin to happen with your swing.”

ProPlay is without a doubt the best and most innovative product on the market today especially for juniors.The color association provides a easy and proven learning tool for consistency-grip color and glove. It is impossible for me to believe that any PGA Professional who works with juniors will not want to use this product. In my 41 years as a PGA Member, this is the best product I have used and will continue to use.

We were given a set of grips and a glove at the 2007 PGA show for my daughter. She was 9 years old at the time. After putting on the grips, she was very precise from that moment on with her grip. Every time she hits a shot, she always checks her grip so carefully with the lines and the dots, and she never hurriedly takes a grip and hits the ball. She is very particular about it. As a matter of fact when she got a new set of clubs, she didnt want to play untill we located you and got her a new set of grips for her new
I think it is the BEST teaching aid for juniors and new players, due to the fact the grip is so very important and so easy to forget for beginners. Plus it eliminates the question, "Am I doing this right?" I teach beginners and juniors here at Errol Estate and I plan on selling this to every new student I have in the future.

I heard about your company from my GolfTec instructor here in Georgia. Was in for a lesson one day and your sales rep had stoppped by earlier and dropped off some grips and gloves. I put the glove on and he showed me how to use it and I was totally amazed by how much it helped my swing. My grip has always been a source of problems with my swing and your system help me straighten it. Decided to order a set of grips and a glove for my clubs so
I can ensure that I'm always holding the club correctly when I'm playing.
Very nice system you've designed.

“Normally I don’t even hit my driver off the tee. I use a 3 wood because I slice it so bad. With the ProPlay system, I lined up the glove with the grip and hit the ball with my driver and it went straight. I didn’t slice it like I normally do”
Once I put the ProPlay grips on, I noticed immediate results. I actually did an experiment. I went to the golf range before I put the grips on and I kept track of how I hit the ball. I can say that 70 to 80% of my shots consistently went to the right. After I put the grips on, I went back to the range and I noticed a dramatic difference. I would say 20 to 30% of the time, the ball went to the right so I was consistently hitting much straighter and with more distance.

Since using the ProPlay System, I dropped 5 strokes. I went from a 22 handicap to a 17 handicap. It is a great system. It has really helped me. I’m hitting the ball much straighter and further. There are so many things to remember with the golf swing. This is a product that gets your grip perfect every time. It helps tremendously. Since using this system, I have become a happy golfer.”
I have told many of my buddies about this system. I truly believe the system has helped my game. I do not hit the fades/slices like I used to. Thank You

Hello! I have been using your products for the last two years and think that they are one of the best golf “training” products available. I am left handed and am well serviced by your company. My wife has seen the improvement in my game brought on by your product.
I just wanted to let you know how much the ProPlay grips have helped my golf game. I used to stand over the ball moving my hands knowing I would not be able to hit a solid shot because my grip was not correct.
Ever since I purchased your grips, I feel like I have finally realized how to have the correct grip with every club. The system your company uses is so easy to use yet so valuable to have a sound golf swing. I just wanted to thank you and your company for an excellent product that I would highly recommend to anyone.
The grips have really helped and I'm glad I found your product.
