How to Regrip your GOLF PRIDE Grips



It is that time of year where we notice our Grips are no longer looking as fresh as they did at the beginning of the season.
If you are wondering how you go about changing them or if you are unsure how often they need to be replaced you will benefit from reading the following helpful hints from our friends at GOLF PRIDE.

  • Why Regrip? 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. While a worn grip causes you to grasp the club tighter, causing arm and wrist tension that inhibits proper swing mechanics.
  • How Often To Regrip? As a rule of thumb, you should regrip 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 regripping sooner, but normally there’s enough degradation of the material after a year to warrant fresh grips. Keep in mind that grips lose a significant amount of their original feel long before they become hard and glazed over. Because it happens slowly over time, most golfers fail to notice it. That’s important to remember because just a tiny, imperceptible slip at contact will be magnified to many yards by the time the ball reaches its target. Many people find that getting in the routine of regripping every spring as the golf season “officially” begins is the easiest way to remember.
  • How to Re-Grip? There are several ways to have new grips put on your clubs. Your local golf retailer, on-course shop or qualified club fitter can regrip your clubs. More than likely, you’ll have your clubs back in a day or so – sometimes in only a few hours. Another way to regrip your clubs that’s growing in popularity is to do it yourself.
