To regrip a golf club, first remove the old grip. Next, apply build-up tape, add grip solvent, align the new grip and set it to dry.
- Remove the old grip
Using a rubber vice clamp, secure the golf club near the tip of the grip. Next, remove the old grip using a straight blade. It is best to use a knife with a hook blade, as it may decrease the potential for damage. Clean off any residue with a cloth and grip solvent.
- Measure and apply grip tape
Determine the amount of tape by holding the new grip parallel to the shaft. Apply build-up tape that is equal to the area of the new grip. Wrap it in a spiral formation from top to bottom. Finally, add extra tape to the end of the shaft.
- Lubricate the grip
Close the butt end of the new grip with your finger and pour a large amount of grip solvent inside the top. Close the top off with your hand and shake.
- Lubricate the shaft and attach the grip
Pour excess solvent over the grip tape, while collecting the remaining solvent in a paint tray for later use. Next, push the grip onto the club. Finally, properly align the grip to the club face and allow it dry for several hours.
