Golf is a sport that requires a few pieces of equipment before you can begin to play. You can rent this equipment from golf courses or buy some equipment by your self. But if you’re serious about golfing and keep yourself to play this sport on a regular basis, so it’s much better for you to invest in your own golfing equipment. If you’ve never played golf before, it’s best to look at different clubs and balls before deciding to purchase. You may ask friends to giving a guidance for you, and don’t be shy to see their equipment set and even hold in your hand.
Golf balls are considered to be of a two, three, or four piece design, which is referring to the number of layers used to construct the ball. Heavier, harder balls tend to travel farther while softer balls allow for more spin. The four layer design is the most expensive, but that doesn’t mean it’s necessarily the best design for your golf game. When you first start out, try using all three styles to see which ball suits your needs.
Golf Clubs and Tees
Golf clubs are set up until 14 numbers and you can bring this equipment with you on the green. The three main types of clubs include the woods, irons, and putters. The woods are used for long shots when shooting from the tee. Irons allow for more precision and are often used on the fairway. A putter is a club that doesn’t allow the ball to loft into the air too much, making it the ideal club for putting the ball when close to the hole. Tees are used to place a ball on when taking the first swing. Plastic or wood, this piece of equipment is essential for getting a good swing in on the first try to play golf.
Bags and Apparel
You will need a bag to carry all of your equipment. Bags have lots of compartments and a strap for easy carrying. I suggest not just carrying a golf bag but also investing in a side-bag from a decent, trustworthy label, something you can use to carry your non-golf items in close to your body. You may also want to invest in golf shoes, which have short spikes on the bottom to make walking on the green easier. As you learn more about the game of golf, you’ll find out which pieces of equipment you need and which are just optional for your game.
And now start to play golf.
