Choosing Golf Equipment


Choosing Golf Equipment

Buying golf equipment is not always easy or cheap, but armed with some knowledge you can save time and money when selecting the right clubs for yourself. Like most things in life, you can spend a lot or you can spend a little, before you get what you really need.

If youíre just starting out and not completely sure you want to commit to this addictive game, Iíd suggest either renting clubs at the golf course, or buy a starter set of clubs. Check Callaway Pre-Owned for a good starting set.

Buying a set of starter clubs enables you to become accustomed to them, allowing you to concentrate on your swing, instead of wondering if this set of mis-matched clubs you just rented will work for you.

As you become better at the game, you should invest in a better set of clubs, you may want to consider having your set custom fit.

A set of clubs usually includes a driver, one or two fairway woods, 4-9 irons, a wedge or two and a putter.

As you become more experienced and start thinking about new clubs, you may want to consider buying your driver separately. Some players choose a driver to give them more accuracy; some need the distance.

As you learn the game and get better at it, you should experiment with different types of balls. By doing this you could help your game by improving your accuracy or giving you more distance. There are numerous balls available and the box will usually have a chart on the back helping to direct you to the right ball for your needs.

Investing in the right equipment is important to your game. Buy wisely!

Perhaps the most expensive accessory youíll ever buy are your golf clubs. But even after shelling out a pocket for them, most golfers donít look after their clubs properly or donít know how to do so.

Since you have invested time, money, and a lot of thought in purchasing your golf clubs, you should consider spending a little more effort in maintaining, storing, and using them properly.

First, consider the golf bag itself. Good quality golf bags will help to protect your club investment. Before you buy one, ensure that that the sides are reinforced. This helps protect your clubs in transport or in case the golf bag falls out of the cart or if it hits other objects.

To prevent theft of your clubs, see if you can buy a golf bag with a flap or a door on the top. The flap should come with a lock mechanism, for example, a number protected lock or even a simple lock-and-key will suffice.

Consider painting, embroidering, or embossing your name on the sides of your golf bag. Some people even take it a step further and imprint their contact details with their names.

In case the bag happens to get lost there is a fighting chance of recovering it again. See if you can get a professional to emboss your name and contact details on the handles of your clubs.

This wonít prevent theft, but at least you know you have a better chance at finding lost clubs again.
