Depending on how often you play golf, the grips on your clubs can wear out after just a season of play. If you golf several times a week or more, the grips may have to be replaced several times a season. According to Golf.com, some PGA tour pros change their grips every few weeks. Check the grips on the clubs you use the most, such as the driver and pitching wedge, more often for signs of wear.
If you use a golf club long enough, no matter how well you take care of it the grip likely will need to be replaced. Whether it’s an accumulation of sweat from your hands, a damaging accident or just routine wear and tear, the day will come when you need to re-grip most, if not all, of your clubs. Re-gripping a club with a graphite shift is basically the same as re-gripping any other club, but a key precaution must be taken.
