In the game of golf, having the right golf clubs is very important. To the untrained eye, a golf club is a just a golf club – but the pros know that there is a big difference between a golf club and the right golf club. Many engineering skills have been put into designing golf clubs to help you play your best. If you get the right club, you’ll play the right game. If you are a beginner here at Brown’s Run Country Club, here’s what you need to know to go about getting the right golf clubs to be able to enjoy playing the game.
Use Rental Clubs
In your quest to find the right golf club for you, you might consider checking out rental clubs. Trying out rental clubs at a driving range will give you the opportunity to try different types and brands. You’ll be more educated and prepared when you’re ready to buy your own set.
Practice With Your Friends Golf Clubs
The truth is the more golf clubs you try, the better your search for the right golf clubs will be. Try practicing with your friends’ clubs and see which one feels right with you.
Let Experts Guide You
If you are just learning the ropes in golf and you are trying to find the right golf clubs, feel free to ask for opinions about clubs. Use the knowledge gained from these experts in determining the right golf clubs for you. While the experts may give you textbook answers or things that work for them, it’s still up to you to find out what works for you. It’s going to be a bit of a process.
Use The Internet
The Internet is a really great resource when it comes to finding, well, anything! You can check out reviews, read expert opinions, and acquire recommendations about what the right golf club should be like and feel like. Be sure to watch YouTube videos on finding the right set of clubs. This will really help you in your search as you will be able to balance what is good with what is right for you.
But caution – don’t make the mistake of buying your clubs online if you’ve never tried that kind of club before. Use the internet to narrow down your search, but go to the recommended shops to try out and buy the golf clubs in person. This will also allow to speak with people that have knowledge to share.
Usually, it is recommended that beginner golfers learn with a half set of golf clubs. These usually consist of five iron clubs (4, 6, 8, pitching and sand wedges,) two woods (3 & 5,) plus a putter.
The driver is conspicuously absent from the half set because it’s the most difficult to control. Using the half set teaches you to control the clubs, perfect your swing, and you will quickly familiarize yourself with important clubs. It will also assist you in finding the right set when you are ready to make a purchase.
Golf can be a little intimidating at first with all the information to remember regarding rules, scoring and equipment. But, don’t worry, here at Brown’s Run (or wherever you play) there is sure to be a person or two around to help out when you feel overwhelmed.
