Regripping

Why re-grip?

  • Grips are made of materials that age and wear as a function of time. Ozone, heat, dirt, and oils from your hands all age your grips and cause the natural degradation of the grip.
  • The traction that a fresh grip provides lets you hold the club lightly without the subconscious fear of losing the club during your swing. This relaxed state promotes proper swing mechanics and wrist action.
  • A worn grip causes you to grasp the club tighter, causing arm and wrist tension that inhibits proper swing mechanics.

How often to re-grip?
As a rule of thumb, you should re-grip once every year. Regardless of whether you play golf every day or only twice a year, ozone, heat, dirt, and oils are constantly at work breaking down the materials that make up your grips.

Granted, frequent play and personal preference may dictate re-gripping sooner, but normally there's enough degradation of the material after a year to warrant fresh grips.

 

Loft and Lie Check

LoftandLieA golf club's loft and lie angles can move over time - when was the last time you checked yours?

 

Loft - Any change in loft can lead to two clubs, for example a six iron and a seven iron travelling the same distance! This can leave a massive distance gap in your golf bag

 

Lie Angle - This have a significant effect on shot direction. Mechanical testing using a 6 iron has shown that if the lie angle is wrong by 2 degrees, the shot will finish 20 feet off target.
