So how do the pro golfers do it? What you may be forgetting is that tour pros either change their irons around three times a year, or they have their clubs professionally maintained by the sponsoring company they represent.
There are a few aspects to getting spin on the ball, but something simply as playing with clean, well maintained equipment goes a long way in giving you the best chance to perform at the top of your game.
Well, it would be nice if you could change out your irons 3 times a year, or just send them off to be repaired, but that is not a realistic option for the amature player. So what are your options?
Maintain your clubs by keeping sharp and clean grooves.
When we hit the golf ball, the process of the glancing blow of the club face against the ball imparts spin due to the GROOVES on the clubface gripping the ball. When your grooves are worn out, the club just cannot grip the ball as well as it should. So the big question is, how do I sharpen my grooves?
There are two ways to go about it.
1). Take your clubs to the local golf shop or golf club and have them do it for you, or
2) You can do it yourself. The main benefits of sharpening the grooves on your clubs yourself is cost savings, you are not without your clubs, and you can maintain them constantly.
