For those who love golf, golf equipment is very important. When you buy it, you will carefully select what you like. After you start, you must also do maintenance work. This will make your golf club last longer. So, how much do you know about the maintenance of golf clubs?
- Club maintenance
- Be careful when shipping the bag
In the course of consignment, the ball bag is prone to collision and breaks the club head. In order to avoid such a situation, it is recommended to use a towel to wrap the club in the bag tightly, which can effectively reduce the vibration. This not only protects the fragile wood head but also protects the face of the iron. The surface of the iron face is soft iron, which is easy to scar due to the collision, which has a great impact on the shot. In addition to the way of wrapping the towel, the checked bag can also choose the anti-pressure airbag and the protective headcover!
- Take the posture of the pole correctly
At the end of the game, in order to facilitate the kick, the caddy will remove all the hoods. This behavior has no effect on the No. 1 wood and the fairway wood, but it will hurt the face of the putter. Therefore, remember to remind the caddy when you are off the court, which will help increase the service life of the putter. Many carbon shaft clubs tend to break near the grip, and the big reason is that the rod is not properly positioned from the bag. When taking a rod from the bag, many people don’t want to pull the handle and then slant it, instead of straight-up pumping. It’s a miracle not to break the rod in the long run.
- Warm up and dust, don’t ignore
Before the exercise, people have to do warm-up exercises. Before playing, the clubs must also do warm-up exercises. In the case of dry and low temperature, the club is brittle and easy to break. Therefore, before playing the ball, you can use a warm towel to rub the preheating at the head, which can soften and effectively protect the club head. There will always be a lot of dust or dirt in the groove of the club head when playing, which not only affects the hitting distance, but also hinders the control of the ball, and wears the groove to damage the club. The golfer can use a towel to clean the dust during the interval of playing and use a cotton swab or the like to clear the dirt in the groove.
- Cleaning step
- Prepare cleaning materials
For the sake of your beloved club, you may wish to purchase some cleaning tools. These cleaning appliances are sold in many specialty stores. With these tools, you can easily bathe your golf clubs. Alternatively, you can also take some local items and collect some household items to clean the club – you can also take the club directly into the sink or bathtub, but it is recommended that you follow the process below. Ok, get ready: first, find a bottle of neutral detergent, then find an old toothbrush or other plastic brush, and you need an old towel and a plastic bucket.
- Prepare washing water
Place the plastic bucket in the sink or bathtub. Squeeze some detergent into the bucket, then add warm water and shake to spare. The amount of water is suitable for flooding the club head. Please note that the water is slightly warm and should not be too high (because the metal hoop on the iron rod may fall off due to thermal expansion).
- Place the iron in the bucket
Put the prepared water next to the faucet for the irrigation garden outside the house, or wash it directly in the sink. Lower the bucket and then soak the iron head in the bucket. Be careful to keep the head and neck above the water. Allowing the irons to soak in warm water for a few minutes can gradually loosen the dirt on the head, and the grease or other chemical residues on the field will be diluted in the water.
- Cleaning the face groove
After soaking for 1-2 minutes, pick up the irons one by one and use an old toothbrush (or other plastic brush) to remove the grooves on the face. This is a very important step in cleaning irons – removing all dirt and residue. Next, use a toothbrush or other brush to clean the bottom of the iron and the head to remove dirt. It is best to use a soft brush to avoid wearing iron. Of course, if the dirt on the irons has been attached for a long time, it will take a lot of time to soak and clean with a hard brush.
- Clean the club head
Rinse the head with a water tap. Be careful not to splash water on the pole. After washing away the detergent, should the dirt on the groove of the face be washed away?
- Dry head and shaft
Wipe the club head with an old towel and wipe the shaft to remove dirt and moisture from the club head, making the iron rod clean and new. At this point, the cleaning of the irons is done. Just wait for you to load them into the bag and walk on the court with a happy mood.
- Precautions for cleaning wood poles
The above is the cleaning method of irons. Then, how to clean the wood? The method of preparing the washing water is the same as that of the iron rod. However, since the wood is easily deformed and cracked by water soaking, do not immerse the wood head in the water during cleaning. Instead, wipe it with a wet towel and then use a dry towel. Wipe off the water quickly. If there is dirt on the face groove, use a soft brush to clean it. Metal wood rods are usually lustrous and the solvent may corrode the gloss of the club head. So the correct cleaning method is to immerse the metal wood in the washing water and quickly take it out, wipe it with a wet towel, and then dry it with a dry cloth. The dirt on the face groove can be cleaned with a soft brush.
