Den Caddie: To Grip Or Re-Grip

To Grip or Re-Grip?
I am sure you have heard the advice that you should regrip your clubs after X amount of rounds played.
Over time the grips on your clubs get dirty, the material starts to wear away break down.  The grips become harder to hold onto.  You have to grip harder to keep the club connected to your hands.  The harder you have to hold onto the club the harder it is to swing free and make good contact with the ball.
If you are like me your golf bag is full of different clubs from different manufactures.  Each one with a different grip size and material.  It is hard to get a consistent feel.
You can make your whole bag a uniform set with the same grips.
Grips cost between $5 and $8 per club, plus $1 or $2 to install them.  Some shops offer a special where they will install for free.  And don't forget your putter!  You use it the most.
It can take 1 to 3 days for the grips to be applied.
You can have it done by the pro at your golf course or at most golf equipment stores.
When selecting a grip, hold it in your hand and pick the one that "feels" good to you.  Everybody is different and stores have lots of different colors and materials to match your hands and color choice!

It is nice when you have a new grip.  Comfy on the hands.

Good advice. I had a driver regripped - only $8 and felt great.
