Best way to clean up golf grips?

Recommended Posts

What is the best and most efficient way to clean up golf grips? I have golf pride tour velvets and they are starting to feel slippery with less control. I regripped them last winter and will probably regrip them again during the offseason.

Soap and warm water. Lots of suds. Rub the suds into the grips and rinse. Use a soft towel to dry. Condensed version, but that's basically it.

This is entirely my opinion. Others may have a way they like to clean their grips that is good for them. This is just how I have always done it.

This is what I do except I get the warm soapy water on an old toothbrush and scrub the grip with that. Then I just take the towel and dry.

Yup....it leaves some of the soap on there that brings out the tackiness of this wonderful grip.

Tour Velvets are super...but they have to be replaced periodically....at least every season....imho. If you want a little more life (and $$$$) then go with the Tour Velvet Cords....an outstanding grip that will last you through a couple of seasons. Super grip in damp weather.

Which cord grips are the best? I know Golfsmith sells quite a few of those grips. Which one is the most durable in all conditions and has a solid lifespan?

"Golfer's Lift Off" does a great job on the rubber grips, not cord or Winn. Spray on grip, let it sit for a couple of seconds and twist dry with a towel.
An outfit in Illinois, Charter Products distributes it. Call them for someone near you who may sell it - about $7 for an 18 ounc can. 630-616-1922.

Be sure to wash and dry your club upside down, so the water doesn't go down into that little hole at the bottom of your club...

    • Okay, I gave you those (and removed the 80 one). An 11 index broke par, eh?
    • Trust me, it happens and not due to abuse. I broke a brand new macGregor 3 iron on the very first swing at the driving range after pops bought me the clubs. On my downswing, the head flew off as soon as the ball was hit.The ball bounded about ten feet to the right, the head about 10 yards to the left. The driver I posted above was about 15 years old and never abused. It was my all time favorite club so it was well cared for and I am too cheap to bust clubs out of childish fits of rage. The club also hadn't been used in a decade, then maybe 20 strikes this summer, just as the OP said, head dangling off strands of graphite. The guy who is repairing it has had a hell of a time extracting the shaft from the hosel, too.
    • Just want to get the word out on a relatively new golf ball company, that seemingly makes a great product.  Similar to my Cut Golf topic. Sphera Golf is a new company (debuted in March I believe) that currently offers two different types of golf balls.  The Pro Threes, and the Pro Fours.  The Pro Threes are a 3 piece urethane cover ball that appears to be trying to play the role of ProV1 in their line up.  Their ProV1 X is the Pro Fours, it is a 4 piece urethane cover ball.  I've been playing the Pro Fours off and on this week and for me they seem to perform every bit as well as any other 4 piece urethane cover golf ball. Prices for the Pro Fours start off at $24.99 a dozen while the Fours go for $30 a dozen.  I hope to update this thread with further impressions as I have more time with the ball, but early returns is that it is good ball for the price.
    • Dropped off some old golf shorts and shirts at a local Goodwill store today, My waist size is now 32", and the 34's and 36's were falling off of me! I kept some of the nicer 34's just in case! After the drop off I went into the store to see if there were any golf clubs worth looking at. The selection was pretty sparse, but I did find a Taylor Made R580XD and an original Callaway ERC II! The ERC II even has a stamping on the heel of the club that states, "Non-conforming to USGA rules". This was the club that made for the big kerfuffle, and lawsuit, between Callaway and the USGA. I bought them both and will go try them out. Considering modern golf technology, I'm not expecting much. But, if I can't hit them, I'll pass them on. Maybe the next guy can. At 2 bucks a club, how could I go wrong?! Dang! I hit the J instead of the H in the title!
    • Not a bad idea. I have some impact stickers on their way in the mail, when they get here I'll try that out, thanks!
