can u put a modern grip on a hickory shaft
Back in the day…hickory shafted clubs had what was known as “underlisting”: material of some sort used to increase the diameter of the grip end of the shaft. Around this the grip was wound. Any time you see a one piece, rubber, grip labeled “Tour wrap” it is an homage to a bygone era…like calling a metal club a “wood”. The only relevant factors are the core diameter of the grip and the outside diameter of the shaft. A stick…if it isn’t the right size…has either to be scraped down or built up. Buy some decent calipers.
