What most players get wrong about golf

A lot of people who play golf regularly think that they know a lot about golf, when in fact they fall to same prejudices and misconceptions as beginners do. One of the most important misconceptions out there is that you have to be rich and have extremely expensive golf clubs to play golf. That’s just not true – i know plenty of golfers who are playing extremely well on affordable set of clubs. The trick is knowing how to choose golf clubs properly. Those same people who think that money can get you better results look down on buying used golf clubs as well. In fact, used golf clubs are extremely useful for those who are tight on budget. You just have to know how to choose them well and what details to look out for so that you don’t get scammed.

It is also always good idea to spend more on golf lessons than you spend on equipment alone. But don’t spend too much time learning basics of golf. I think the return on investment of paying for golf lessons steadily decreases after one or two lessons. After that, the best way to get better at golf is to just be on the course and play regularly. Practicing and getting good golf clubs is, in my opinion, the supreme way to improve your golf skills. For example, if you’re slicing your shots, getting a draw type driver and practicing with it a lot can fix most of your problems.

One more thing that people often don’t realize is also related to the cost of golf clubs. They don’t like to pay thousands for golf clubs, but when you think about it, golf clubs are only minor costs compared to what you pay for course fees over time. For example, high quality set of clubs might cost you about thousand dollars, but you pay much more on the course actually, not to mention the time you spend playing golf. My point with this is, if you are going to spend a lot of time and money on your hobby, you might as well do it right and not be cheap when it comes to golf clubs. This is not to say, of course, that you should try to buy your way into success when playing golf. That is impossible. On the other hand, you shouldn’t be hesitant to pay for quality.

Some people also don’t realize that having golf as a hobby can be a great addition to traveling. I, as an experienced traveler, can attest that these two hobbies go very well together. I don’t know if it’s generally accepted fact, but for me, playing on the fields of a country can be  a great way to get the vibe of countryside and in general, get the best from my traveling experience. I think this fact about golf isn’t as ignored as the others, but this sport can also be a great way to get to know interesting people, who will enrich your network. That’s why a lot of businessmen play golf – to have fun and relax, of course, but also in order to make new, interesting acquitances.

The role of clubs in golf

People often over-estimate the importance of using high end golf clubs and how much they can affect your overall performance. Generally, it is held that expensive golf clubs can make your game much more powerful and effective. I agree to that opinion, but only in smallest extent. My view is that golf clubs can indeed be powerful tools when wielded by someone who is experienced in golf and knows how to use them. On the other hand, in hands of a newbie golfer, high end clubs that cost thousands of dollars will be no better than average golf club set that costs two or three hundred. There might be slight difference, but not nearly enough to justify paying for extremely expensive golf clubs. This applies when we’re talking about beginner golfers. If you are on a higher level of experience and have played golf at least for few years, then spending extra on golf clubs might actually bring you significant results, but i’m still skeptical about it.

If you’re not fond of the idea of buying golf clubs as a set, you can try buying individual clubs one by one. For example, i know of a guide that can help you find affordable drivers.

One type of golf club which is extremely important to get right is the driver. It is also an area in which you can buy the most performance for your money. Cheap drivers are usually subpar when it comes to results that you can achieve by using them, so it always makes sense to invest in good golf driver. If you’re tight on budget, but still want to get the best golf driver for your buck, then i suggest you check out used drivers on eBay and craigslist. You have to have some knowledge of golf clubs and be careful when choosing them. Some sellers will try to pass off knockoff clubs as genuine ones and we as buyers have to look out for that. Besides that, eBay offers some protections on purchases of used golf clubs from their platform, while craigslist offers none. So eBay is the safer of the two options when it comes to buying used golf clubs.

When it comes to other types of golf clubs, especially the irons, differences between expensive and affordable golf clubs aren’t that noteworthy. If you are a beginner, you won’t be able to tell the difference at all. So if you have some money to spend, i would advise it to be spent on the driver.

Other than that, golf clubs might also have decorational value for some people. I personally feel much better about holding and carrying around a golf club that looks good, as compared to a club that looks scruffy. That’s one of the reasons for why i don’t like to buy used golf clubs and always prefer to save up for the new one.

Overall, to sum it all up, the main point of this article was to declare that when it comes to succeeding in golf, golf clubs aren’t nearly as important as people believe them to be. Beginners would be much better off if they spent some money on golf lessons and other golf accessories that would make their lives easier on the golf course.

The most convenient golf clubs i’ve ever owned

Before i start telling my love story with certain golf club set, i should tell my love story with convenience first. I absolutely adore convenience in everything – personal life, hobbies, and even work. That’s why i think i’m the perfect person to be writing about convenient golf clubs – where and how to get them. I have been playing golf for several years now, mostly on weekends but i sometimes go golfing after work as well. I greatly enjoy this sport, and i think mainly due to the fact that my golf clubs are so good and easy to use. I don’t know how good of a professional golfer i would be. That would mean making golf my job, and anything that’s your job automatically becomes boring, right?

When you’re getting golf clubs for yourself, there is a question of performance vs convenience. Which do you prefer? But before you answer that, this question should be answered clearly : what is performance when it comes to golf clubs? Ease of use or something else? Well, to me, convenient golf clubs are of course, first of all, easy to use. For a golf club to qualify for a label of “convenient’ in my perspective, it should also be light and easy to maintain. I’m not the kind of person who likes to clean and carefully store all of their belongings, so that might explain my need for convenience when it comes to golf clubs. So, back to the question of performance vs convenience. It’s not hard to decide, really. If you’re like me, and just play golf to relax and have a good time on the field, then convenience is well worth sacrificing a little bit of performance, if it even comes to that. With enough budget, i think you can get clubs that are extremely well designed and crafted. So if you’re rich, you might not even have to choose between best-performing and most convenient golf clubs. You can afford to get clubs to manage both of these qualities into one.

One of the best ways to get convenient golf clubs is by buying them as a set. When golf brands sell entire sets of clubs, buying them can be a great idea because they offer few key advantages. First of all, each club in the set will be cheaper when you buy all of them at once. There are other ways in which entire golf club sets are convenient. For example, when you have custom-made golf club set that contains all the clubs you picked out individually, there is a chance that something might go wrong, like your golf bag may not fit them all. With golf club sets, all of that kind of risk is eliminated, because club sets are made to work in tandem. Not to mention the fact that club sets are usually much more affordable than other sets. My favorite set, and the most convenient set of golf clubs i’ve had so far, is Callaway Strata Ultimate. You can read review of this Callaway Strata set here.  To any beginner looking for a great set of clubs, that is the set i recommend, because i had the pleasure of playing using these clubs for few years now.
