  1. Club Re-gripping

    I finished re-gripping my clubs today. Youtube is wonderful and helped a lot. The hardest part was removing the old tape. It was my first time.

    The price of grips is extortionate in Canada. When I go down to the States, Ive bought Lamkin Crosslines on sale for as little as $3.56cdn, but golfworks has them for $7.25 and they never go on sale. Where can I get grips for less money?
