Replacing golf club grips frequently is something that amateur golfers rarely do, but all serious golfers are tired of doing. If you buy a new used golf club set, replacing the grips is the first thing to do before anything else. Now after we’ve discussed why changing the grips is so important, i want to teach you how to do it yourself. If you fail, you can always go to golf store and have it changed by professional, but that is unnecessary when you are skilled to change golf grips all by yourself. I tried to make this guide as easy as possible, so even beginner golfers don’t get confused.
First off, let’s see what you will need –
- Golf grips themselves, obviously. Make sure to buy SuperStroke one. I bought golf grips from them and i’m still very satisfied with quality.
- Very sharp knife or box cutter. We’ll need this to cut current golf grips installed on your club.
How to Re-grip by yourself?
There is no such thing as only true way to regrip your golf clubs. There are tons of ways to do so, and everyone chooses to do it in their own unique way. And as long as it works, it’s fine, but i’m going to explain how to do it simply. And keep in mind, that even if you fail, your golf store will always be happy to replace grips for you, but it will usually take several days to complete. And set yourself up to pay around hundred dollars for such simple service. So, in a sense, by replacing your golf grips by yourself, you can save several hundred dollars and a lot of time. More and more people are learning to do golf regripping themselves, which is good to hear.
What if you don’t change grips on your golf club?
Grips are what you hold your golf clubs with. So if you do a lot of golfing, even the best golf grips can wear off after years. So it can get really loose and unstable, therefore placing your golf swing quality under risk. And after all, it’s just a precautionary action – it’s better to be safe than sorry. Having a good golf grip is one of the essential parts of having a good swing.
Choosing the grip..
There are lots of grips out there, and golfers endorse so many different products that it can be confusing. Fact is, there are no perfect grips that everyone likes, so it’s totally up to you and depends on what you need and want from it. I personally like SuperStroke golf grips, which i had mentioned earlier in this post.
It’s recommended to change grips on your golf clubs every now and then. The time period i use is exactly 1 year. I like to take care of my golf clubs. And it doesn’t really depend on how active of a golfer you are. The more frequently you change your grips, the better your game will get. I say this based on my experience and lots of friends who are much better golfers than me.
