How To Identify The Grooves My Golf Club Has?

Before you start sharpening the grooves on your wedges or irons, we need to first make sure we identify what kind of grooves you have! Grooves have changed over the past years and there are two different golf club groove types.

To identify the grooves on your golf club, grab a wedge and examine the face of the club (the part of the golf club that hits the golf ball). The V-shaped or U-shaped lines seen on the face are the grooves.

Using a magnifying glass, look at the slight taper at the cross section of the grooves.

If it appears like a u-shaped or box appearance it is a U-groove compared to the other groove that appears in a V-groove shape.

SQUARE OR U- GROOVES

Square or U-Grooves will help increase the spin on a golf ball. This type of groove was banned in 2010 due to research that showed U-grooves gave golfers an unfair advantage when they were using a urethane cover golf ball in the sand and rough.

U-grooves will also be banned in organized amateur games by 2024.

V-GROOVES

V-grooves have replaced U-grooves or square grooves. V-grooves are designed in a “V” shape and offer a decent amount of spin compared to U-grooves.

V-grooves may not offer as much spin, however they do offer a more consistent spin rate.

Is Sharpening Your Grooves Illegal?

Yes groove sharpeners are legal, after all it’s just a tool. It’s what you do with it that can make your club non conforming.

All clubs now have their grooves machined to maximum tolerances, if you increase the size of them through scraping your club becomes non-conforming.

If you use it just to take out bruises that have rolled into the groove, you should be ok.
