When you have used your clubs for a while or if you have bought a set of used clubs, the handles may feel a bit sleek. This will be apparent especially when playing in rain, where the handles will become slippery and you may not be able to keep a firm grip resulting in a lot of bad shots.
Of course, you have the option of regripping all your clubs, but there is an easier and cheaper way to revive your handles, prolonging their lifetime. You can simply wash them!
All you need is your clubs, a bucket of soap water, a bucket of clean water, a towel and a hard scrubbing brush. And not to forget, a glass of wine, which will make this chore a lot more fun.
You start by scrubbing one handle at a time in the soap water solution. You don’t have to soak the handle in the water, just use the brush to add soap water to your handle. A few scrubs up and down the handle all the way around should do it.
When you are done scrubbing the handle in the soap water solution, you use the bucket with the clean water to thoroughly rinse the handle. You can do this by still using the scrubbing brush, which will help remove the slickness from the handle and return some of the original roughness.
All you have to do now is wipe the handle with a towel and let it air-dry. It’s important that the handles are completely dry before you put your clubs back into your bag.
And while you are waiting for your clubs to dry you can enjoy whatever is left in your glass.
