The best golf clubs - How to choose the right one

Sunday, November 29, 2009

In choosing the best possible golf clubs for your self, there is a wide range of golf equipments manufacturers that produces top of the line quality golf equipments and these are some among many trusted brands; Wilson ,Bay Hill, Ben Sayers, Hippo, Lynx, SeeMore, Ram, Yes Golf,,Adams, Stylo, Stuburt, Cotswold and Dunlop are all excellent name brand golf clubs. As a beginning or even a professional golfer, trying to decide which set of golf clubs to purchase, however, may often feel like taking a shot in the dark. In a society that is increasing name brand conscious, many of us are tempted to simply buy what everyone else seems to be buying. Selecting the proper golf clubs, however, is something that you shouldn't do without having a good idea of what types are available and what the specific use of each club is. Using the proper golf club can and will greatly improve your game. Other important things to consider are choosing the right lie and the right shaft flex. The flexibility of the shaft of the club is known as the bend or flex. If you're a powerful swinger, you'll have more control with less bend. Beginners and less powerful swingers are better off with more flexibility.

If you're new to the game of golf, the first thing you need is a basic set of golf clubs. A basic set will include irons, putters, wedges and drivers, and even though most non golfers don't believe it, each type of club is designed to improve the speed of your swing and will help you correct faults in your game. Using the right type of golf club is essential and will make the learning process quicker and easier. The first thing to consider when choosing a set of golf clubs is your basic ability level. There are basically three ability levels including: low handicaps, mid handicaps and high handicaps.

If you're a low-handicap golfer, you generally score less than ten strokes over par. Low-handicap golfers should carry at least one fairway wood and a driver as well as lower irons, and at least 3 wedges, a pitching wedge, sand wedge and either a lob wedge or approach wedge. A mid-handicap golfer in the 11-20 handicap range should add a 7-wood or even a 9-wood to their bag. The fairway woods will provide much better control and consistency than the long irons. Mid-handicap golfers should stick to the 3 and 9-irons and the same wedges recommended above. High-handicap golfers are either new to the game or just haven't mastered the basics and usually shoots over 100. It's highly suggested that high-handicap golfers use the 3-wood for the tee off and add in the 7 and 9-woods. The same wedges would apply that are suggested for the low and mid-handicap golfers.

Today, common concensus is that the most important club you can have in your golf bag is a hybrid. Many golfers have used this club to replace the three-iron. Tour players are even switching to this club.

Drivers and woods are probably the most important clubs in the bag and everybody loves them. Mainly used for longer shots, drivers are usually the first club out of the bag on the tee. Some advanced golfers, however, may decide to use a driver off the fairway is they need a little extra distance.

Fairway woods are usually considered the most reliable golf club and seem to be a favorite because they tend to make you look better than you really are. This is a club that is evolving slowly but should definitely have a place in your bag. A fairway wood usually improves a golfer's accuracy and allows him to loft the ball higher.

The iron is a club that is definitely riding on the edge of technology and suprisingly enough is getting less expensive. While this club isn't perfect yet, it's getting there, and most players should be using game improvement irons. These irons stress perimeter weighting, forgiveness and higher trajectory.

Finally, the putter is a club that has certainly gone high tech and some of the newer Super Mallets look like they belong in Science Fiction movies. Thankfully, though the traditional putters are still performing well and remain favorites.

Golf tips 101 - What you should know about golf

Wednesday, November 18, 2009

The things that you need to know about golf after knowing what kind of golf clubs to use and finding the right discount golf equipment is how to play the game. There are many different kinds of golf tips and techniques from both amateur and professional golf players and these are some golf tips that you should know first before playing.

What is the easiest shot in golf that all beginners can properly execute? It's the "gimme" putt. As the distance between the cup and the ball becomes greater, the tougher it is to make a shot.

Start Small.

Beginning with this idea in mind, you will see that when honing your golf skills it makes sense to start with smaller swings, then build up to the full swing. This is the reason why a person just learning the sport will learn and teach the body the correct motions in developing an accurate and powerful swing by starting with the short swing. Trying to learn the full swing first makes it much more difficult to learn the correct muscle coordination that the full swing requires.

Learning to hit for distance and then accuracy is putting the cart before the horse. It works the other way around. Ultimately, accuracy will create distance.

Often the difference between a strong, powerful swing and a misguided hack is the tendency to hit, rather than stroke, the ball. The difference can be seen when examining a short putt, when it is easy to stroke the ball. Hitting is not an option for a short putt, which makes it the easiest shot in golf. No desire to hit the ball allows a stroking, swinging motion. Perfect this technique for short-distance shots and you will find increasing accuracy and distance with your long shots as well.

Now, after hitting the shot, you must read it correctly. You must be in a balanced finish to read it properly, so you can check your alignment in case the shot is off line. As you stand in a perfectly balanced finish and watch your ball, ask yourself: how does my balance feel, how was the brush, how was the path, was the clubface in the correct position, and did I hit it in the center of the clubface? Then, either focus more on what is missing, or play it and go fix it after the round. You will only be able to accomplish 8 to 10 perfect shots per round, so be mentally prepared!

Spectacular Golf Courses in UK

Sunday, November 15, 2009

UK is known for its vast land across Europe and many of the most popular places that has a really nice view and ambiance are UK's spectacular golf courses. There, people can have a chance to enjoy the spectacular scenery and play golf on the golf courses that are built for the love of golf. Most of these golf clubs also have their own shops where you can find good golf clubs and some discount golf equipment from the finest brands of golf equipments manufacturers.

Royal Birkdale Golf Club

Open in 1954, Royal Birkdale is regarded by many to be the finest championship venue of all. And in order to get an idea of the stature of the course, one only has to look at the events that have been staged there. Eight Open Championships, two Ryder Cups, the Walker Cup, the Curtis Cup and countless major amateur events have all been played over the hallowed turf of Royal Birkdale.

Gleneagles (King's)

James Braid fashioned the Gleneagles Hotel King's course that opened in 1919 set in the splendour of the Perthshire hills in Scotland. It has matured into one of the best moorland lay-outs in Scotland with majestic views of the Ochil Hills, Ben Vorlich and the Trossachs. The holes blend perfectly into the landscape, the springy fairways wind through heather and gorse. Mature pines, silver birch and rowan provide natural amphitheatres on several holes. One great hole follows another through rolling terrain until the memorable 525-yard 18th King’s Hame where a good drive speeds over a ridge between the twin bunkers to a downslope towards the largest green on the course.

Royal Liverpool Golf Club

With the exception of Westward Ho! in Devon, Royal Liverpool is the oldest seaside course in England. The original layout was conceived by Robert Chambers and George Morris, and was extended to 18 holes in 1871, the same year that it was awarded its Royal status. In the early days, the links land doubled as the racecourse of the Liverpool Hunt Club, but these days the golf course takes centre stage.

The Vale Resort

The Vale Resort set amidst over 650 acres of beautiful Welsh countryside, is now firmly established as one of the UK’s most desirable golf destinations. Once part of the Hensol Castle estate – a 17th century stately home, the Resort is home to a luxuriously appointed 143 bedroom, four star hotel with the majority of the rooms affording superb views of the golf course and surrounding countryside. Every aspect of the Resort has been designed to maximize comfort and convenience for every type of golfer. The Vale boasts two championship standard golf courses, the highly acclaimed 7,433 yard Wales National and the aptly named Lake course which have further boosted Wales’ reputation as an elite golfing destination in the build up to the 2010 Ryder Cup.
