How To Find The Best Golf Equipment For Your Skill Level

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 and resources on how to improve your game, and so on. It'd include factual information about the game, historic tidbits, as well as plenty of straightforward reviews of golf clubs, golf shows, and golf carts. I want to learn why today's golf balls go farther and why they are so much easier to control. And I want to know, how in experts' unbiased opinion, balls from Maxfli, Titleist, Nike, Callaway and others differ.

Yes, I know; you can read about all this in magazines and there certainly are enough golf commercials and ads out there. But just knowing that leading golfers uses Ogio or Burton golf bags or some advanced Ping hybrid doesn't help me much. I am not Tiger Woods or Ernie Els. I just want to know how well golf bags, golf carts, golf shoes or golf club work for me. I don't need the hype. I just want the facts.

To give you one example of what I am looking for. I do believe in training aids. I am not a golfing natural and I need all the help I can get. But I also don't want to waste money on stuff that doesn't work. So why should I not benefit from the knowledge and expertise of someone who has tried it all? For example, I had no idea how the LeaderBoard Golf Trainer worked. But I found a detailed description on a golf site and now I know all about it. That doesn't necessarily mean I'll buy it, but now I know what it is.

Another technology I've become interested in is golf GPS. You can buy those at discount stores, but I wanted to know how they work and where they fit into my game. Once again, an online golf equipment review website came to the rescue. It's just invaluable to have an expert describes a technology, how it can help you, and then point you in the right direction.

Do sites like the ones I described above have to completely non-commercial? I don't think so. Everyone deserves fair compensation for their work and if a really good golf equipment review site has links to stores and sites the author has had good experiences with, that's fine with me. I'd rather buy from a place that comes highly recommended.

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 …

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 …
