Get a Grip: Value of regripping your clubs cannot be overstated
The weather is perfect, the course is green and you're ready to go. But are your clubs?
Before you hit the range or tackle the course, be sure that you're giving yourself the best chance at success by making sure that your clubs are as prepared as you are.
