Golfing Equipment: Beginners Guide

One of the major problems beginner golfers face is finding the right clubs, balls and other equipment. There are, of course, hundreds and thousands of shops and dealers where you can purchase things related to golfing but finding the right equipment with a decent quality can be a little difficult, especially for a beginner. That is why you should do a good research about all the tools and equipment before getting in to the game. When it comes to golfing equipment, there are different brands and manufacturers producing different tools with different qualities. Buying a brand new high end set is not really recommended for a beginner. Because he or she has to gain skill through practice and experience first. If you spend a fortune to buy a set of clubs just to play a couple of games that would be a waste. This guide will help you understand about few different and important equipment in this game.  


A set of clubs is an absolute necessity for a golfer, obviously. When you shop for these clubs you can get a good set including a golf driver and fairway wood, pitching wedge, seven through nine irons, putter and a sand wedge. It is better to settle for a basic set when you are starting out and as you gain experience, you can purchase a better set of clubs. However, make sure you get your skills and swing mechanics improved with time. If you think you need more practice, get a trainer or do it yourself. It is recommended to avoid using game improving clubs when you are starting out.


When professionals are playing, you can see that they are wearing a glove in one hand. This is important as well as essential since it keeps clubs in place and it stops them from slipping off from your hand. As a beginner it is a good idea to buy a glove for yourself. It will, of course, stop you from getting embarrassed and also, it is ideal for safety.


When you are a beginner you should be focusing on getting your swing mechanics improved and choosing a ball may not be that important. As you gain experience you can buy good quality ones like Titleist balls but at the beginning, settle for a cheap set of balls.You can focus on your tees, shoes and scorecards later as you get the hang of the game but as a beginner focus on your foot work and right technique. Once you have purchased a good set of equipment, spend a good amount of time playing your games and learn from you mistakes.
