How To Find The Best Golf Equipment For Your Skill Level

How To Find The Best Golf Equipment For Your Skill Level

Sometimes I think back of the days when I started playing golf. Things were simple then. A wood was still made of wood, and a 5-iron was a 5-iron. Or at least that’s what I thought until I learned more about equipment. Still, things were relatively simple, but they are not anymore. Just read some golf equipment reviews. It’s totally amazing how technology has changed the game of golf, and how radically golf equipment has changed over the past couple of decades.

As someone interested in new gadgets, I have been fascinated by the introduction of Golf GPS. Let me give you a few basics. GPS stands for Global Positioning System and uses satellites and a receiver to determine where you are on the planet with amazing accuracy, as close as a couple of feet. GPS is available in most new cars and it’s also available for golf where it can help you improve your game. It’s not a traditional training aid, though. What a Golf GPS receiver does is figure out where you are on a course, and then give …

How To Play Better In Golf Tournaments

Whether you're an avid novice or a seasoned player, the chances are good that you've wished for the opportunity to compete in a golf tournament. It's great to watch the PGA Tour on television, but nothing is more satisfying than entering and playing in golf competitions yourself. Unfortunately, while golf events are routinely held at private courses and country clubs, most golfers who play on public courses don't get the opportunity to participate. Even if they do, they don't have the chance to compete against golfers from around the nation.

It shouldn't come as a surprise, then, that the Internet is filling the gap and making it possible for golfers of all ability levels to compete on a national level. After all, community building has become a cornerstone of Web 2.0 in arenas as diverse as politics, music, and gardening - why not golf?

Indeed, the latest trend in the world of golf is membership in an online competitive golf association. The concept's be…

Magnetic Golf Bracelets: Does Magnet Therapy Really Work?

You hear about designer jewelry that not only is beautiful, but it is also giving the wearer magnetic therapy. Magnetic therapy has become quite popular with golfers. The magnetic therapy helps ease aches and pains that might affect a golfer. Some of the great PGA players use magnetic therapy and they feel better and seem to play without having any aches and pains that can affect golfers. Magnetic therapy cannot cure what ails you but it can help the healing process. Many greats in different sports also use magnetic therapy as a way to heal the body in a natural way.

Although magnetic therapy cannot be explained and two studies that were done using this type of therapy were in conclusive, golfers today as well as everyone else who wears these custom made pieces will swear that they help them tremendously. Golfing does cause the body some stress if you do not practice proper posture and swing with grace, but how can having magnets on your body really affect how you feel. Many golfers …

The Best Golf Equipment For Beginners

I hate trial and error when it comes to spending money. I much prefer unbiased golf equipment reviews to make my purchasing decisions. I've even been known to whip out my iPhone and use its web browser to look up a product review while I was in a pro shop. This has often saved me from wasting money on a product that wasn't right for me.

But where do you look and how can you tell what's biased and what's unbiased? And where to find a good site? Things have changed over the past 15 years. Back then, email was a productivity tool and not an exercise in frustration with all the spam. Likewise, websites gave you actual information whereas today half of them are a canned paragraph of useless text and a barrage of obnoxious ads.

My ideal golf website is created and run by a true golfaholic. Somehow who knows the game inside out, yet also knows how to write and run a website. The site would explain the game of golf, describe all the equipment needed for golf, contain tips an…

Golf Training Aids That Really Work

Golf is undoubtedly one of the world's most rewarding and frustrating sports. The serenity and beauty of a golf course on a sunny day belies the tension that can creep into a round when we're not hitting our best. While the concentration that the game requires is often the perfect antidote to the stress of work and life responsibilities, there are times when the safe haven of 18 holes feels more like seven levels of the netherworld. Unfortunately, most of us don't have access to a personal golf coach or trainer, and we're forced to work out the kinks in our game on our own. Thankfully, though, there are golf clubs and training aids that can help get us back into the swing. Here are some of the most popular:
Full Swing Trainers There are several types of full swing trainers, but among the most popular is a hinged driver that gives you immediate feedback and helps you overcome slices and hooks. Another popular system involves a swing hoop and weighted club that creates …
