Step-By-Step Guide To Repairing Golf Clubs

It is very easy for you to step up and repair your own golf club instead of having to get someone to do it for you. More often than you can imagine, repairing your club on your own will not only make it easier for you to save on some money, but you will also be in a good position to enjoy playing with the club in the long run. You will feel as though you are using something that really does belong to you, the work of your hands. It will actually feel like you built the club from scratch. So what are some of the things that you need to consider when trying to repair your club?

The following are some tips that you need to pay attention to:

Step 1

Hold one side of the club underneath your arm with the grip facing ahead of you. Use a hooked blade under the grip and cut it away from the shaft. Try and be really careful not to cause any damage on the shaft, especially in the event that you have a graphite shaft.

Step 2

Peel and scrape to get rid of the old tape that might have remained underneath the shaft. If need be, you can also use some solvent to help removing any more residue that might be on the club

Step 3

After you have done all that, let the club stay and dry off completely

Step 4

Secure the club in a vice. Make sure that you are using something like a rubber holder to ensure that you do not cause any damage to the finish. As a matter of fact, try not to hold it too tight. Graphite shafts in particular will need more attention and special care.

Step 5

Put double sided grip tape on the shaft. Make sure that the tape you are using is of the same length as the grip that you are about to set on the club.

Step 6

Take a golf tee and push it into the vent hole on the new grip and then add in some solvent for the open end. Add more solvent from the grip across the length of the grip tape

Step 7

Align the position of the new grip properly on the shaft. Remove the shaft from the vice, wipe it properly and then allow it to dry up.
