Winn Golf Grips
Huang, a newcomer to golf, enrolled in a
weeklong session at The Golf Digest
Academy in Silverado, California. Under
the tutelage of Jim Flick and Paul Ryan,
Huang submitted himself to a virtual
boot camp. The grueling training may
have left Huang's shoulders sore and his
hands blistered and aching, but it also
left him determined. The rubber grips on
his clubs were so slippery and
uncomfortable that he had to
overcompensate by holding his clubs too
tightly. The tension translated into a
stiff and labored swing. Frustrated and
fed up with the strain, Huang resolved
to use the vast expertise he'd gained
from developing a successful tennis grip
line to create a golf grip that would
provide better shock absorption,
improved slip-resistance, and
Over eighty patents later, Winn golf
grips now bring greater comfort and
enjoyment of the game to golfers
worldwide. And Huang, who has long
stopped strangling his clubs, has never
had so much fun whether on the course or
in the lab.
