One of the most common jobs we undertake here at The Pro Shop is changing grips. Often customers ask when the ideal time to change grips is. Some customers change their grips every year before the season starts, others hold off until the grips are worn and sometimes actually illegal for competition use.
Lamkin say that you should change grips every 40 rounds, or 30 rounds if you’re practicing regularly. Any golfer should take care of their grips by giving them a clean after every couple of rounds to make sure the corrosive elements from our hands don’t stay on the grip for too long.
The signs that your grips need replaced are:
• Smooth, hard surfaces
• Shiny Patches
• Wear spots, especially where the thumb makes contact
• Faded or bare spots on grips that have been painted or have logos
• Complete loss of tack
