Golf club re-gripping - How to do it yourself
Re-gripping is one of those things that you often put off. Why re-grip when you can just buy new set in the not too distant future? As easy as that may be, it is often performance that is affected by shiny, slippery grips. Is it really worth putting it off?
It does make sense to have golf grips in tip top condition, they are the only point of contact that a golfer has with the club and as result vital for feel and performance. Grips are generally made from rubber and will degrade with time due to wear, dirt and oil from your hands. Most industry experts suggest that you regrip your clubs as often as once a year!
So how can a worn or incorrect grip effect performance? Their is the obvious slippage that occurs when a grip is worn, but also there is the increase in hand tension when holding onto a worn grip. This tension can have a severly detrimental effect on your game.
Re-gripping your clubs can be as easy as simply taking them down to your local pro, but becoming incresingly popular is DIY regripping. You do not need a lot of equipemnt and you have the added benefit of a significant saving on a third party re-gripping your clubs.
