After buying your own golf iron sets it is important to that you take care of your clubs.
This article will discuss how to take care of them, how to refinish the clubs, and how long they last.
First, you need to learn about cleaning your golf clubs. You must clean golf clubs regularly, around every couple of rounds and after each game. It would be good to carry around a towel to get rid of any dirt or moisture that gets on your golf clubs during the game. Wipe down the grip surfaces as well to maintain a good grip for all of your clubs.
To clean your golf clubs, soak them in a bucket of water to remove the hardened dirt (you can skip this step if you regularly clean your golf clubs between rounds or if you are cleaning your woods). Use warm soapy water and a soft-bristled toothbrush for the club faces. Never use a wire-bristled brush as this can damage the club face. Dry the club face and shaft immediately after soaping them and use a damp cloth for the grips. You can also hose the clubs down but be careful not to splash any water up the shaft. Make sure that the clubs are dry before storing them.
When playing or transporting your clubs, make sure that the storage area has nothing that can knick or dent the club heads and shafts. When storing clubs at home, keep the clubs indoors and not in your car trunk or garage. Temperature and humidity can damage the glues and the grip. Consider buying head covers for your clubs, especially your woods as they can get damaged if they bang around with the irons. Golf iron sets don’t really need head covers, though getting one for your putter is ideal.
The next topic is about refinishing golf clubs.
To refinish golf iron sets, you will need safety glasses, leather gloves, a hooked utility knife, solvent, epoxy, a heat gun, a buffer, wheels and compound.
The first step in refinishing golf clubs is to replace the grips by cutting the grips away and cleaning the shaft. After doing this, you can put on new grips. It is advisable to replace grips once or twice a year.
Next, replace the shaft by heating the hosel with a heat gun. Once the shaft is detached, clean the hosel thoroughly and reattach the shaft to the club head with epoxy. The last step is to refinish the club head. Remove the club head (This should happen before reattaching it to the shaft.). You can replace the finish by buffing the club head with abrasives. Then you can polish the club head and repaint it.
Next is the lifespan of golf clubs. The shafts can last forever, though banging them around can damage them. For graphite shafts, as long as there are no cracks or peeling away, the shafts should be okay. For steel shafts, just be sure that there are no kinks, pits, or rust. Shafts don’t wear out as long as they are not damaged or bent.
Know when to replace your golf clubs. First check your golf clubs’ shafts. Inspect them for dents, nicks, splits or other forms of damage. Check if they fit your swing (something you should have checked upon buying them). If the shafts are damaged or do not fit your swing, it is time to replace them. Also, check if your grips have shiny worn areas or cracks. Taking care of your golf iron sets and golf clubs in general can help extend their lifespan, but remember that good equipment isn’t everything when it comes to improving your game.
