A fellow spy contacted me asking about the whipping of a friends 5-wood that came undone. He wondered if this is something most golf repair men still fix or if it’s something he could do on his own. I told him most old timers can probably do it, but it’s also something he could do himself, he just needed a little instruction and a few supplies.

 

Now, this diy is to show you how to re-wrap whipping that has come undone, which you can remove and reuse, or if the whipping is completely gone, using new whipping. I didn’t have any clubs that were ready for whipping on my drying rack right now so I just used an old club that I’d found that already had the whipping removed.

 

I have a few tricks to make whipping easier, like a whipping jig I built and use, but for this diy, I’m going to show you the easiest way for a guy at home in his garage using the most basic of clubbuilding tools can re-whip an old persimmon wood.

 

 

 

First put your club in a rubber golf club clamp and gently tighten so that the club is secure but can still be spun easily in the club. This is important to make winding the whipping easier.

Next, grab your whipping. You can remove and reuse the old whipping or you can use new whipping. I offer 5-yard spools for DIYers that will wrap one club, so that’s what we’ll use here. Take the spool and cut off about 8 inches of whipping and set it aside, we will use this piece later.

 

IMG_0951.thumb.jpg.672c935a8cfc134da75b230e7fc731ca.jpg

 

 

Next, take the spool and unwind it a bit. Lay the end whipping on the spool about 1/2” down the back of the shaft at the top where the whipping begins. You usually see a discoloration on the shaft to see where to start, just make sure it’s on the back of the head.

 

IMG_0952.thumb.jpg.18be26d6c96b35fc49a40052ee2a5f40.jpg

 

Wrap around the shaft about 5 times over the end to keep it secure.

 

IMG_0953.thumb.jpg.9eda11bb7ab11ba28872540189efd6d9.jpg

 

 

 

 

Now, continue wrapping by using your right hand to guide the whipping while the left hand twists the club head to rotate the shaft in the clamp/vise.

IMG_0960.thumb.jpg.b879a8e1afe1ebe8fab2f8ce3a02d2d2.jpg

 

 

 

Continue wrapping the whipping tightly until you are about five wraps from the end. Take the 8” piece of whipping you cut off earlier, make a loop with it, and lay it down on the back of the club head on top of the whipping.

 

IMG_0962.thumb.jpg.b26cd3e0ced4bd9e9da63bc2bcf70683.jpg

 

 

Continue whipping over top of the loop your final five or six turns.

 

IMG_0965.thumb.jpg.b0a713f5888c32b677267cd5dee8b31b.jpg

 

Once you have reached the bottom, thread the end of the whipping through the loop. Pull the loop up and the end of he whipping will be tucked underneath the last five rows of whipping.

 

IMG_0967.thumb.jpg.249ea4c82365a7916f4ff753d54cb7d3.jpg

 

IMG_0969.thumb.jpg.2d0b0b984af9f919cf4b921ae5493f2f.jpg

 

 

Use an Exacto knife to cut the excess from the tucked pieces at the beginning and end of your wrap.

 

IMG_0970.thumb.jpg.8ee6c20ee58ac9378e3e533b0d9ae09d.jpg

 

 

Apply some clear nail polish to to keep the ends secure.

 

IMG_0971.thumb.jpg.ad2b0aa0d5c16e9a2050125e819248bd.jpg

 

 

 

 

And there you go. A nice, tight whipping, and an old club ready for many more rounds.

Wow you're a true craftsman! I admire that kind of patience and skill.

Thanks for the kind words guys. I’m just trying to pass on any little bit of knowledge I have that can help keep these old clubs on the course where they belong.

I enjoyed reading your Whipping demonstration. Nice photos too. Question... What material is the whipping made from?

Thanks Plaid. The whipping is nylon, almost like monofilament fishing line. I believe most companies began using this type of whipping post-WWll as clubmaking came into a more modern age.

Prior to steel shafts, hickory shafted clubs used a linen whipping which was also used in the early days of steel shaft clubs too.

I must be an old timer, I have the line and the pitch and the tool. Don't use it very often as you can imagine.

A EXCELLENT explanation.

 

and on a Macgregor Tourney ?

Yup, an old 1961 I believe, Macgregor Tourney I found for $2. I used that for the demo just because it was sitting there in the pile with its whipping already removed. I guess I should have used a lighter colored head as it would have been easier to see the whipping. I’m just happy most of the pictures are in focus as I had my 8 year old take the pics when I didn’t have a free hand.

Just thought I’d share a pic of @deejaid‘s persimmon handiwork in action

Real 3-wood + frickin laser beams = happy DLK. Although the vintage wardrobe obviously still needs a lot of work.

Nice write up deejaid!  I learned a new method from you on how to pull the whipping through at the end.  👍      I always pulled extra whipping off the spool and held it along the neck while whipping over top of it for the last 7 or so wraps, pull tight and cut.  

My special tool is a spray paint can lid nailed to the workbench leg to hold the grip end in the 'cup' while I twirl the club to get the whipping around the neck.
