How to Purchase the Right Golf Clubs for You

Purchasing golf clubs isn’t as easy as you think. You don’t just buy the same golf clubs that your favorite pro uses, nor do you have to get the same clubs that your golfing buddies rave about.

So how do you buy them then? Here are some tips that should help you get started:

1. The first thing you need to realize is that golf club manufacturers produce golf clubs for different skill levels. The golf clubs for the best players offer a lot of control for the best players, but they’re not easy for newbies to handle. On the other hand, the golf clubs for newbies can be very forgiving for newbies but these clubs severely limit what the pros can do with the ball.

So naturally, your first step is to ascertain your particular skill level in golf. You may be a low handicap player, a mid-low handicap golfer who may not hit the balls properly every now and then, a high-mid handicap player who plays every now and then and who usually gets into the rough and misses the greens. The high-handicap players are the worst, as they may even tend to hit the turf more often than the ball.  Read more “How to Purchase the Right Golf Clubs for You”

Golf Practice Exercises to Improve Your Game

So you want to improve your swing? Having a good set of golf clubs helps, but you also need to practice on a regular basis if you want to get better at your game. But it’s not enough to just take a mighty swing, as you have to do things in a specific way. This article explains some golf practice exercises you can try..

How to Align Your Shot

The right way to do this is to evaluate the target at the back of the ball. Doing this gives you the correct view of the hole. You should also position the clubface at the back of the ball so it’s aligned at the target directly. Do this prior to assuming your stance.

You can align your upper torso parallel to the target, or you can move your lower body so it’s to the target line’s left. The choice is up to you, but the one thing you should not do is directly align your body to the target as that’s not going to help your swing. Read more “Golf Practice Exercises to Improve Your Game”
