Why Re-grip?

Why re-grip your golf clubs?

Why re-grip? The grip is one of the most important components in golf and the only part of the club that you actually touch.Golf grips are made of materials that age and wear as a function of time and use. 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 and leads to a loss of power and control.

A fresh set of grips is an inexpensive and fast way to bring a noticeable change to your game.

How often should you re-grip?

As a rule of thumb, you should regrip once every year or every 40 rounds. Regardless of how often you play, 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 with normal use 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 slick. 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.

By themselves, fresh golf grips can only allow you to approach your potential as a golfer. They can’t overcome a bad swing, or poor alignment, or any of the other faults that bedevil even the best golfers. But a national survey of golfers showed that 66% of those who had clubs re-gripped showed an average drop of three to four strokes per round!

At a Newcastle Golf Centre our Certified Club Maker will provide a high quality fitting service ensuring  you have the best golf grips to improve your game.

Golf Driving Range Tips

Golf Driving Range Tips

With Rory McIlroy getting to grips with his golf game for the 2015 season, why not get your own game in shape too. Heres a great article with some golf tips  to guide when when practicing at the driving range.

Visiting a driving range can help you improve your golf game without the expense of playing a full round of golf. At a driving range, it’s possible to hit several dozen or even more than 100 balls in a relatively short period of time without any pressure. Depending on where you live, you might be able to visit an outdoor driving range all year, or you can take advantage of an indoor range during the winter.
Step 1
Stretch your shoulders, back, legs and arms for several minutes before taking a club out of your bag. Loosening the body helps warm your muscles and lessen the chance of a swing-related injury. After stretching, take several practice swings with a 9-iron. Practice swings continue to loosen your body.
Step 2
Hit a number of shots with your 9-iron, focusing on proper foot placement, hand placement on the grip, backswing and follow through. Avoid the temptation to race through shot after shot. Instead, approach each shot as though you’re on the golf course and the shot is important. Rushing yourself at the driving range can produce bad habits.
Step 3
Move through your irons from high to low. Next, select a hybrid club if you have one and then your woods from high to low. Note your distance with each club; knowing this information helps you select the proper club when playing on a course. Most driving ranges have yardage markers set up at 50, 100, 150 and 200 yards. Use these markers to your advantage as you hit each club.
Step 4
Hit at least 10 balls with your driver, noting the distance and trajectory of each shot. If you struggle hitting your driver, the driving range is the ideal opportunity to improve your consistency.
Step 5
Move to the driving range’s short-game area and practice hitting balls out of the sand and onto the green with your sand wedge. Practice chipping and pitching at the designated area, and finally, your putting on the practice green. Most of the shots you take in a round of golf are shorter shots; spend adequate time practicing with these clubs.
Tips

Aim for specific yard markers and try to place shots as close to the markers as possible. Having a very specific target will help you focus.
To simulate the routine of playing a hole of golf, tee off with a driver, hit a long iron and follow it up with a short iron or wedge.
