Have you had your Irons for a couple years and you are not getting the spin you use to? A Golf Club Groove Sharpener may just be what you need to try to bring back those sharp edges on your wedges and irons to insure a good spin rate coming off the club face.
As the times go up of hitting golf balls, the edges get marred and dulled to the strikes of balls, sand and yes even turf. If you are like me, I can’t go out and buy a new set of Irons every couple years just because the grooves are a little worn. So an option is to refurbish the grooves.
The process is simple and straight forward. Once you decide on what type of groove you have it’s a simple matter of anchoring the club on a solid surface, face up, and drawing the sharpener through the grooves one at a time.
Most sharpeners come with a variety of shapes to match the type of groove you may have. There are only two basic options of groove shapes. U shaped on older clubs and V shaped on newer clubs after the USGA changed the rules in groove shape in 2010.
The USGA decided that the U shaped grooves provided the better caliber players no penalty out to the rough as the rough was intended to do so hence the change. Next year (2020) the USGA will evaluate the change and see it the move to V shaped proved to solve the problem and if it does we all must have V shaped grooves by 2024 to establish a USGA handicap.
There are many groove sharpeners out there but I think the Groove Master is the best
