Why is re-gripping your clubs so important?
Whether you know it or not, it’s not just wear from play and practice that makes for a bad grip. Dirt, heat, and oil from your hands contribute to its breakdown as well—and this begins to happen well before they become hard and slick.
Because it happens slowly over time, most golfers fail to notice it. That's important to remember because just a tiny, imperceptible slip at contact will be magnified to many yards by the time the ball reaches its target. Many people find that getting in the routine of regripping every spring as the golf season "officially" begins, is the easiest way to remember.
A good guideline is to re-grip once a year or every 40-50 rounds. Granted, frequent play and personal preference may dictate regripping sooner, but with normal use there's enough degradation of the material after a year to warrant fresh grips.
How does this affect my swing? It’s because once a grip loses its traction you are likely to grip the club tighter—a definite no-no. The traction that a fresh grip provides lets you hold the club normally without the subconscious fear of losing the club during your swing. This relaxed state promotes proper swing mechanics and wrist action. Meanwhile a worn grip causes you to grasp the club tighter, causing arm and wrist tension that inhibits proper swing mechanics and leads to a loss of power and control.
In short, a fresh set of grips is an inexpensive and fast way to bring a noticeable change to your game.
