Regripping Golf Clubs


In this video tutorial and blog, Kurt Steen (a golfsmith for the last 15-years) reviews and demonstrates the regripping golf clubs process using 2” pre-cut tape strips by Golf Tape Direct.

Tools you will need for the regripping process:

  • Small screwdriver (or an item that will fit through the back of your grip)
  • Marker

Regripping instructions using the 2” pre-cut tape strips:

  1. First remove the backing from the golf tape
Place the tape on the club shaft with approximately ⅜ of an inch of tape hanging off the end of the shaft
Press down on the tape firmly so it seams onto the club shaft
As you roll the tape around the end of the club shaft, you want to slide up and down the shaft to make sure the golf tape stays smooth
Peel open the pre-cut pieces of your backing and remove them
  4. Twist the end of tape and then push the excess into the end of the club shaft
  5. Now take your grip and line it up to the club shaft with approximately ⅛ of an inch off the end of the club shaft
  6. Take your marker and mark the end of the golf grip so you know where it needs to go - this will eliminate stretching or not getting your grip on far enough
Then take your solvent and pour about a tablespoon into the grip
  8. Make sure you coat the inside of the grip really well
  9. Slowly run it along the tape on the club shaft making sure it gets properly coated
  10. Take your alignment and set it to the center of the club shaft
  11. Push the grip up and over the club shaft
Finish by pushing the grip fully onto the club shaft -- up to the measurement you made earlier with your marker

To complete the regripping process:

  1. Take your screwdriver and punch through the end of the grip making sure it has that open space that will allow air to flow down the shaft and keep it from getting condensation and allow the solvent that may have to run down the grip to dry
  2. Wipe off any excess solvent
  3. When complete - set your club head facing up so any solvent that may have dripped into the shaft can run back out

And that completes the regripping golf club process using 2” pre-cut tape strips.
