Stop Golf Grip Slippage in Hot Weather by Doing This

By: Nick Bayley

Is there anything worse than swinging a golf club and feeling the club slipping in your hands? Because if that happens you're pretty much guaranteed a terrible golf shot. And unless you're Tiger Woods it is very hard to stop the swing when you're in the downswing of a golf swing.

I have no idea how Tiger does that!

Anyway, if the weather is very hot and humid the chances of your grip slipping as you're swinging goes way up. Also, if you're playing in the rain then naturally the chances of your grip slipping as you make your golf swing go up as well.

But there are simple solutions to this problem which don't have to cost you anything. And the first solution is a dry towel.

When you play golf you should carry at least 1 extra golf towel. Ideally you should carry two extra golf towels however. And if you're getting hot and sweaty or it's raining then before and after every golf shot you should be wiping your golf grips and hands with one of your dry towels.

Also, if it's raining you'll obviously have your umbrella up so I suggest that you keep your towel under the umbrella to try and keep it dry for as long as you can. Then when your towel is not doing a good enough job then simply put it back in your golf bag and get another dry towel out.

Now here's a neat trick.

Every two or three holes simply get some sand from the bunkers (or from the little buckets they give you to put in divots) and rub some of the sand on your hands and on your golf grips. This will help to absorb the sweat and it will help you to keep a firm golf grip as you're swinging.

Important Note: If you're a women reading this you may prefer to take talcum powder with you and put this on your hands instead of sand.

So the next time you play a game of golf where it is possibly going to rain or be hot and humid
