If you find your golf grip is slipping when you’re playing on hot, humid days because of your hands sweating then you will want to read this article now; because in it I’m going to explain a couple of simple tips that will help you to stop the golf grip from slipping as you’re swinging.
By the way, these tips can also be used to help when you’re playing golf on rainy days as well.
Ok, let’s get started then. The first tip is to have a dry towel or three!
If you know it’s going to be hot and sticky or raining then make sure to pack some extra towels. Then before every golf shot you should wipe your grips and your hands.
If it’s raining then make sure you keep your towel under your umbrella to help keep it dry for as long as possible. Then when it’s too damp, swap it for a dry towel.
Another grip tip you can use to help you hold onto the club in hot, humid weather (and even when it’s raining) is to get sand from the bunkers and rub the sand onto your hand. By doing this it will help to absorb some of the sweat from your hands, which will help you to hold onto the club better as you’re swinging. But take note of this very important point – be sure to never do this when your ball is in the bunker – this is against the rules of golf.
If you’re super prepared then you can take some talcum powder or even cornstarch powder with you to keep in your golf bag for the hot, humid days to rub on your hands as and when needed.
So here’s a summary of what you can do to hold onto the golf club better on hot, humid and even rainy days, to ensure you maintain a good golf swing in all conditions.
First, make sure you have plenty of clean, dry towels. Second, rub sand on your hands to help you absorb sweat (when there is no play from that bunker), or take talcum powder or cornstarch powder to the golf course with you for rubbing on your hands. If you do these two things then you shouldn’t have a problem holding onto the golf club in the hot, sticky weather; or in the rain.
There’s nothing worse than losing your grip as you’re swinging – so make sure you use these two golf tips to make sure you don’t lose your golf grip when you play golf.
