GOLF EQUIPMENT: GEARING UP PROPERLY FOR GOLF
Like any other sports, golf requires that you are geared up correctly to
be able to properly play the game. This article will give you an idea of
basic golf equipment one requires to be able to learn and play golf.
For starters, the basic golf equipment is a golf ball. Golf balls are
dimpled tiny balls, use in to play golf. They are dimpled to reach
farther length when driven by golf clubs.
Another important golf equipment is a golf club or golf driver. Golf
drivers come in different varieties. This is because a golf course has
different landscapes and different golf clubs are required to make the
proper drive. Depending on the landscape, either sand, grass or cement, a
golf club is essential to make the perfect drive. Professional golfers
usually have a bag or two of golf clubs to cater to their golf needs.
Most golf stores and sports equipment store sell golf clubs. Some golf
clubs are sold in sets while other are sold individually.
To protect your golf equipment, such as your golf club, a golf bag golf
club cover is essential. A golf bag will, of course, hold your golf club
in one place and will make it easier for your caddy to bring your many
golf clubs. Golf bags can also hold golf balls and other golf equipment
like water bottle to quench your thirst while under the sun or extra
shirt or your regular shoes. On the other hand, a golf club cover covers
the edge of your golf club. This is done so to protect your golf club
from unwanted scratches and dents. Dents can cause your drive to go from
ok to bad. Dents in golf clubs can affect the drive of your golf ball.
With these golf equipment, you can take care of the state of your club
and your game.
One golf equipment that you need to invest on is a good pair of golf
shoes. Golf shoes are different from usual rubber shoes or walking shoes.
Golf shoes are created to walk on greens - the type where the sport is
played. Golf shoes usually have pointed rubber under the soles to grip
the earth and sand under your feet. This way, unnecessary shaking or
moving is avoided. This is important because shaking can cause you to not
hit the golf ball or to hit the golf ball in the wrong direction. If you
plan to play professional golf a good pair of golf shoes is a necessary
golf equipment to add up to your list. Choose one that is sturdy yet
comfortable enough for you to walk into. Golf is a sport that requires
walking from one hole to another or to where your ball landed (you can
not use golf carts on the greens) and thus, if your golf shoes are
uncomfortable, you would have a hard time concentrating on your game.
A golf equipment usually provided by most golf courses (aside from the
golf ball) is the tee. The tee is the tiny pin like thing that you punch
to the ground to stand your ball into. The tee is use in teeing off (the
start of your first drive) thus the name.
The most amazing golf equipment ever created (for me, that is) is the
golf cart. Golf carts can take you from one hole to the other, though as
I said earlier they are not allowed on the greens, they still lessen the
burden of having to walk under the hot sun. This golf equipment can be
acquired from golf courses. Golf players are usually made to use golf
equipment such as this to give them a better and easier time playing the
Many specialty shops and sport shops offer golf equipment. The internet
is also a good source of golf equipment. Second hand golf equipment are
even auctioned off the internet, if you are on a tight budget. Check out
your local golf shop, sports shop, specialty shops, E-bay or Yahoo! for
your golf equipment needs.
