National Regripping Month
Why it is important to get your clubs re-gripped
The grip is one of the most important components in golf and the only part of the club that you actually touch. Today's grips are made of materials that age and wear as a function of time and use. As a rule of thumb, you should regrip once every year or every 40 rounds. Regardless of how often you play, ozone, heat, dirt and oils from your hands all age your grips and cause the natural degradation of the grip. Keep in mind that grips lose a significant amount of their original feel long before they become hard and slick.
Key signs of wear to look for include:
Smooth, Hard Spots
Wear spot, especially where your thumbs contact the grip
Many people find that getting in the routine of re-gipping every Spring as the golf season "officially" begins is the easiest way to remember. So come join in National Re-Gripping Month presented by Golf Galaxy and Golf Pride. A fresh set of grips is an inexpensive and fast way to bring a noticeable change to your game.
