Once you've mastered the technique, you can regrip golf clubs in a matter of minutes. You might delegate the duty to your golf pro. Choose a PGA golf professional to provide and install new golf grips, and you'll profit from his or her extensive knowledge.
Golf club makers design their products to be flexible and forgiving, which means they should fit most anyone who holds them. But even though fitting may not be necessary for true beginners, it's helpful for everyone else. The fit of your clubs will affect how far and how straight you shoot the ball. A little bit of care can go a long way.
The best place to start when trying to decide what type of grip to use on your club is with the material itself. There are two main types of grips: leather and polymer. Both types come in natural and synthetic varieties. Leather grips are obtained by tanning and curing the skin of an animal such as cow or deer. They are popular among more experienced players because they provide maximum control and feel while maintaining a high degree of strength. Synthetic grips are made from plastic materials that are molded into the desired shape. They are preferred by less experienced players because they don't have the hang-up problem that can occur with leather grips. However, they tend to be more fragile than leather ones so must be used carefully!
Next, take into account the material your club is now made of.
There are currently two options for having your golf clubs regripped: Drop off your clubs during shop hours and take advantage of our club repair professionals' experienced guidance to pick the ideal grips for you and complete the work ticket. New alternative for people looking to spend less time in a crowded shopping environment - bring your own grip tape and have one of our staff members apply it to your clubs.
Clubs tend to wear out or break down over time, especially the face of the club which is exposed to heavy use. The club face has a number of small holes drilled into it to accept the nails that hold the head cover on. These holes become enlarged over time due to striking heavier balls and they may begin to look rough or worn. This makes the ball come off more easily causing increased scoring errors. The club grip also becomes worn over time and this can affect your grip strength when swinging the club. If you pay attention to how you feel when holding a club, you will know if it needs regripping.
It is important to have your golf clubs regripped about every four to five rounds to ensure they are still appropriate for your swing style and level of play.
If you drop off your clubs between rounds you will need to make sure they are cleaned well before they are put back on the stand. This means removing any dirt or mud from outside the club house that might be on the sole or top of the club head.
If you play a lot of golf, you'll notice some wear and tear on your clubs, especially the grip. If the grip on your golf clubs has become loose or frayed, you may re-grip them at home using common household products and equipment. First, use a soft cloth to clean the club's surface.
Next, mix equal parts baking soda and water in a bowl. Use a paintbrush to apply the mixture to the grip area, working it into the fibers with slight pressure. Let the club dry overnight in an open space away from any sources of heat or moisture.
After it dries, use a soft brush to remove any residue of the baking soda and water mixture. Your new-and-improved grips will provide better control of your ball strikes and reduce your risk of injury as you play.
