How to Clean Golf Grips

     A golfer's grip on their clubs is essential for achieving optimal performance on the course. Over time, dirt, sweat, and oils can accumulate on the grips, compromising your control during the swing. This gradual build up will negatively affect your golf performance and leave you blaming everything but your dirty grips. Cleaning your golf grips regularly is a simple yet crucial maintenance task that can enhance your game and prolong the life of your equipment. I suggest cleaning your grips every few rounds.  In this article, we'll delve into the step-by-step process of cleaning your golf grips to ensure you maintain a firm hold on the path to success.

     If you have not changed your golf grips in the past 2 years and you are at least a casual golfer, cleaning your grips alone probably won't be enough to enhance your performance.
