Clean your grips regularly using gumption and hot water. Dry with a clean towel. Replace your grips at least every 12 months if you play golf two or more times a week in a temperate climate.
Do you suffer with arthritis? When you are armed with the right golf grips, golfers with arthritic hands will endure less discomfort. Contact MGIC to ensure you have the right equipment and it is serviced well, because it makes all the difference. Using oversize grips will reduce pain since the bigger the grip, the less the amount of pressure your hands need to apply and the less the vibration your hands will endure.
Changing your golf club's length also changes the club's playing characteristics -- which is the reason golfers decide to shorten or lengthen a club. On the other hand, maybe you received a driver as a gift that's a bit too long, or you found an otherwise perfect wedge at a garage sale that doesn't quite fit.
Lengthening a club gives you a longer swing and, potentially, a faster swing speed. The increased speed will translate into more distance if you hit the ball squarely. But the added weight may cost you some control and make it more difficult to hit the club's sweet spot. Longer shafts also become more flexible. If you trim the club from its butt end you'll also increase the shaft's flexibility, because the narrower, more flexible portion now makes up a greater percentage of the shaft's overall length. By the same logic, trimming the tip makes a shaft stiffer, but the club's most flexible area is reduced.
Once a golf club shaft has been broken, it cannot be repaired, but it can easily be replaced. You can also change the shaft in your golf club to try out a new model, without going to the expense of purchasing a new club. While sets of steel shafts are still commonplace in the bags of amateur golfers, many of them would actually improve their iron play if they switched to graphite shafts. Graphite shafts are generally much lighter than steel, which should make them easier to swing for those with slow swing speeds or that lack strength, like lady and senior golfers.While it’s true, graphite shafts do tend to be slightly more expensive than steel, this gap in price is narrowing, encouraging golfers to make the switch.
When securing or replacing a golf club head on a shaft, it's important to ensure perfect alignment and that the glue is placed in the right areas to prevent future breakage.
In layman’s terms, the “grind” on your wedge is the geometry of the sole, which can be manipulated by removing (grinding off) material from the heel, toe, trailing edge and leading edge to perfect how the club contacts or interacts with the turf. Grinds allow for more creativity and consistency around the green, letting you play with ball spin, flight, power, and other factors. This is a process that should only be done by a certified clubmaker, so don’t get any ideas of grinding your wedges at home. If you unsure of the grind needed for your swing get MGIC involved to ensure your not paying for something that's ill fitted
Each manufacturer has a different specification for the loft and lie angle on their clubs. did you know you can get them adjusted for your particular swing. Find out more about the loft and lie below.
Get the lofts checked at least once a year, because playing and practicing (especially on mats) can slowly bend irons. With use, iron lofts tend to increase, so shots fly higher and lose distance. These changes can also happen unevenly through a set. If you have two irons that seem to fly the same distance, chances are that their lofts are too close. Have the loft of each iron adjusted or returned to its original loft.
When golfers buy a new set of irons the loft or lie angle of the clubs will not be perfectly suited, unless the clubs have been fitted. Have the lie angle adjusted to your particular swing so your shots don't travel offline even when you make the perfect swing. The most important thing about measuring lie angle for each particular golfer is how the club is interacting with the ground at impact. If either of these scenarios occur, you need to have your lie angle adjusted properly for your swing.
The club is too upright, and the toe is not making contact with the ground at impact; or
The club is too flat, and the heel is not making contact with the ground at impact.
If your club is too upright at impact, then your shots will travel to the left of your target. Conversely, if your club is too flat, your shots will be heading right.
