Golf can be an expensive hobby if golf clubs and other equipment are not properly cleaned and stored. It would be a long time investment if you take good care of your golf clubs. One of the finest and high-quality golf clubs is the Callaway golfclubs. To maintain its durability and efficiency, all golfers should pay attention to how they handle and keep their Callaway golf clubs. Even if such clubs are made of sturdy materials, their performance can be disrupted by the accumulation of dirt, chemicals and debris, which can clog the grooves of the club face and scrape the edges.
Callaway golf clubs vary according to the materials used. Golf clubs with shafts made of steel are easily maintained while the ones made of graphite are fragile and demands extra care of the owner. Graphite shafts tend to easily corrode. Aside from the shaft, the grip should be also maintained.
There’s nothing complicated about golf club maintenance. You only need to gather some things such as water, bucket, small brush, and mild dishwashing soap. In storing golf clubs, you need to put them in a temperate, dry area where no one or nothing can displace it from its position. Bear in mind that properly maintained Callaway golf clubs will make your shot accurate, forceful and controlled.
Club heads should be cleaned before, during and after the game. For every shot, you should have a clean cloth so that you can wipe off the dirt immediately. Make sure that the grooves on the club head are free from grass and dirt. If you clean the club head after each shot, it will be easier for you to clean it at the end of the game.
Golf clubs must be cleaned after a few shots. The right way to clean golf clubs varies for every type.
• Metal Irons
Use lukewarm water in cleaning metal irons. If water is too hot, ferrule on the golf clubs may become loose. Mix a little bit of the dishwashing soap to the lukewarm water. Submerge the club head but make sure that the shaft will not touch the water. Place the metal iron in the pail in such way that the ferrules are not submerged in the water. Let the iron soak for about 5 minutes. Afterwards, scrub the grooves with the use of a small brush. Rinse with lukewarm water. After rinsing, use a hand towel to make it dry. If your goal is to remove rust, then you may use a fine grade steel wool. You may also opt to polish the club heads using a chrome polisher.
• Metal Woods
For metal woods, you no longer need to soak them for a long time. Just dip it in lukewarm, soapy water and remove it immediately. Using a damp cloth, remove the dirt and debris on the club head. If the dirt in the grooves is still there, then you may use a soft brush to clean it. You may opt to apply wood wax to polish the club.
Shaft maintenance includes checking for dents, nicks and cracks. Shafts should be cleaned after a few shots. A regularly cleaned shaft tends to last for years, but it may still be damaged if it is improperly stored and transported. As a rule of thumb, never lean on your golf clubs or even on the golf bag containing the clubs.
Always check if there are cracks, loose or slippery spots, faded regions in the grip. If the grip is not in good condition, don’t hesitate to replace it immediately. If you’re not familiar with grip replacement, you can avail of the regrippingservices from golf pro shops.
