Has it been more than a year since you last replaced your golf grips? If so, then it is probably time to have your clubs regripped.
Did you know that 70% of golfers never change their golf grips? That is a crazy figure when you consider a golfer typically keeps their golf clubs for five (or more) years. The average golfer doesn’t change their golf grip often enough but do you know how often you should be regripping your clubs? There are a number of factors that determine the best possible schedule but golfers should usually plan to replace their grips about once a year, depending on how often they play and the condition/climate of the area.
Plan to replace your grips after every 40 rounds of golf. However, if you spend a lot of time on the driving range practicing your game, then you should plan on replacing your grips after every 30 rounds. If your grip is looking worn out (showing shiny patches, cracks or wear spots), then the time to replace your grips is now. And since most people don’t count the number of rounds they play between grip changes, it is frequently easiest to simply plan on changing them once a year unless you see noticeable wear.
When you play with old and worn grips, you grip the club too tight and it will lower your score on the course. See a golf professional or your local club repair expert to ensure that your grips are properly sized. If your grips are worn out or slick, then they aren’t helping you!
How do properly fit and fresh grips improve your golf game? They will enhance your comfort level, improve your shot dispersion, increase your distance and improve your attitude on the course. What could be better than that?
