Ian Poulter‏
@IanJamesPoulter   I think it's time to re-grip all of my equipment today. Fresh grips is always the best feeling. Makes the clubs feel brand new again.

@IanJamesPoulter   I re-grip my clubs every couple of months, and my driver every month as it wears out quicker than any othe club. It must be my raw power lol

@IanJamesPoulter   I use the same style of grips & have done for 16 years I think. It's not broke don't fix it. Feel is everything in this game.

@IanJamesPoulter   New grips looking very nice. Ready for a huge 1st week in the FedEx cup. #letsavit //pic.twitter.com/CXw5Fbsv
