Very few recreational golfers ever think about the care of their golf clubs – a correspondingly miserable picture they often present. While professional golfers can delegate the care of their golf equipment to their caddies, recreational golfers should do it themselves. If you want to clean your clubs after every game, you should allow plenty of time for this. However, this will also have a positive effect on your game.
Cleaning the golf clubs
Here, two parts can be distinguished which have to be cleaned separately: the golf grip and the club head. To clean the golf grips, a simple soapy water or water with dishwashing liquid is sufficient. They are first moistened and then rubbed clean. You should use a cloth or rag for this, which you do not necessarily need any more, because it will be very dirty afterwards. How much dirt golf grips contain is usually only visible after this cleaning. To clean the club head, use a hand brush and scrub it thoroughly.
The reputation of cleaning machines, which are offered in more and more golf clubs, is worse than it should be. Some players claim that cleaning the golf club with such machines would damage the club. However, this has not yet been proven. Therefore, it is better to use a cleaning machine before not cleaning at all.
Worn golf grips
Depending on how often you play golf, the grips of your club will wear out more or less quickly. Especially in the area where the thumb rests on the club, the rubber wears out quickly. It can therefore become slippery. Inaccurate shots and poor game results are the result. If the rubber of the club grip is worn out, you should consider changing the grip. A change should be scheduled after about two to three years at the latest. If you golf frequently and intensively, a more frequent change may be necessary.
Correct storage of golf clubs
Usually golf clubs are stored in a golf bag or golf bag. However, if you have many golf clubs, you may find this type of storage a little confusing. The modern alternative is to use designer cupboards, where your golf clubs can be stored gently and practically (click here for more information).
Ideally, these cabinets should have a glass door, so that you can admire your golf clubs at any time and can quickly and easily choose the right clubs for the game at hand. For this special purpose, it is advisable to have a cabinet made to measure at the Carl Manufactory. Here you can not only define the exact dimensions that the cabinet may have for your premises, but you can also have a decisive influence on the design of the cabinet.
For your better play
If you make sure that your golf clubs are cleaned regularly and stored properly, you will enjoy them for a long time to come. Apart from a longer service life, you will also notice positive effects on your game – and this alone is well worth the effort.
