According to world renowned golf instructor David Leadbetter, you should be re-gripping your clubs ‘at least every year, but ideally after every 40 rounds of golf’. This is because UV light, dirt, and general use cause your grips to lose tackiness and traction, which results in an increase in grip tension, leading to reduced clubhead speed and distance.
So, what do you need to look for? - ‘If you see wear marks such as indentations or your grips look shiny, then they are past their due date’. Great advice from the man who transformed Nick Faldo’s swing!
