For the last 4 years I’ve been telling myself I need to re-grip my clubs. I know, I know…4 years is a long time to go with crappy grips. What you are missing here is the strategy. I can blame my grips for every bad shot, which happens to be just about every shot. OK, maybe not every shot but, you get the point.
The fact that I stink at golf has made me a firm believer in everything has to have balance – yin and yang. You see, without bad shots I wouldn’t appreciate the good shots as much. Although there are usually more bad shots than good shots, the good shots are easily worth 5 or so bad ones (e.g. balance). Hence, no re-gripping…that is until now.
I decided to re-grip my clubs myself for 2 reasons; 1) it’s cheaper and I can save 40-50 bucks and; 2) my grips were so bald a club almost went flying out of my hands, which is definitely a safety hazard. So, I hopped online and was able to find a good deal on some new grips, double sided tape and solution. I then headed over to YouTube for instructional videos and voilà, I was good to go.
The difficulty level was very low, however it did require a little effort to slide the grips over the tape. Other than that it was very easy. Now I have to figure out what to blame for my un-spectacular play. I guess I could just man-up and face the reality. Hey, at least my ball retriever can go another year before it needs to be re-gripped!
Hit’em long…yell FORE!!!
