Golf Gear Guide – Look After Your Clubs
No matter what level of golfer you are and however much money you will have spent on your set of clubs, you should make sure that you take good care of your clubs. Golf clubs can be broken down into three sections: The head, the shaft, and the grip; there are ways to ensure each part stays in top condition, and things you should avoid if you want your clubs to last a long time.
Tips On Looking After Your Golf Clubs
For all parts of your golf clubs, you can use warm water with a household detergent – washing up liquid is ideal.
1. The golf club head.
The golf club head must be kept clean, this is the only part of the club that actually makes contact with the ball. Any dirt or debris in the grooves can affect the strike, even with a putter. Also, if you keep playing with dirt in the grooves, it could even damage them.
In this complete golf gear guide when playing your round, you should ensure that each club- head is wiped after your shots. However, routinely you should take time to give your clubs a deeper clean.
For the club heads use a soft scrubbing brush with the warm soapy water, gently scrub the clubhead, paying particular attention to those grooves. Rinse the clubhead with clean water, and then dry the head with a soft cloth or towel. This is important; otherwise, you may start seeing rust spots – especially if you’ve owned your clubs for a while.
2. The shaft.
During your round, the most important thing with the metal shafts is to dry them if they’ve got wet. Otherwise, you may find rust spots developing. The other important thing (including graphite shafts) is to wipe them down to remove any grit that may have got on them as you’ve put clubs back into your golf bag. In this complete golf gear guide we want to ensure they don’t get scratched.
3. The grip.
A good condition (and clean) grip should feel slightly ‘tacky,’ especially when you are wearing the right glove. It’s essential to keep your grips in good condition; otherwise the club might slip in your hands during your swing. This could prove disastrous for your golf score.
To maintain your grips, again, use warm soapy water but use a
scouring pad or stiff brush and give a proper scrub. Rinse them afterwards with clean water and then dry with a towel or leave to air dry.
On a final note about the golf club grips, your grips should be replaced regularly, including your putter grip, depending upon how much you play. If you’re playing 1-2 times a week your grips will probably last up to 12 months, this will take a reasonable amount of practice time into consideration. If you’re playing 3-4 times a week you might need to change your grips after around 6 months. Take this into consideration with how regularly you should change your grips.
4. Use a cover for your putter.
In this golf gear guide your ‘woods’ (driver / 3-wood) will come with covers to protect them, and perhaps your putter will. If it doesn’t, see if you can buy one – you use your putter more frequently than any other club, and you need to protect the clubhead.
The most important tip for all golfers, listen carefully. Don’t use iron head covers, this is wrong on so many levels, and is a real golf fashion faux pas, just don’t do it!
