What are the Things You Need To Know About Golf Equipment

Golf Equipment Basics

Golf requires an investment in specific equipment when a new player begins. For beginners, choosing the right set is a tough job. To purchase the best fit for your body type and swing, club research is very important. Be careful in choosing– golf equipment can get pricey.

The Top Equipment a Golfer Should Purchase Before Playing

Golf Balls

There are two main options in a golf ball. The first one is the two-piece golf ball which is simply made up of the core and the cover. It is an excellent choice for a beginner and golfers with a high handicap. The second one is the multi-layer which is designed for experienced players. These balls have additional layers between the cover and the core. These layers help elevate control, feel, and shot sculpting.

The Golf Club

The main purpose of a golf club is to hit the golf ball. But, golf clubs are not one-size-fits-all. So, make sure that you consider different factors like the clubhead size,  shaft length and flex, grip thickness, loft angle, and iron backs. Club fitting is also an important factor for you to be able to identify which fits you best.

Golf Tees

Perhaps, golf tees are the most overlooked golf equipment. But, these “supports” also take a great part in a golfer’s gameplay. They keep the ball in place when you’re about to take a shot. With quality golf tees, you can improve your distance of the tee giving you chances to lower your scores. There are wooden/bamboo tees and plastic/rubber tees to choose from. If you have a tendency to break a lot of tees, wooden ones are for you.

Golf Bag

If you don’t want to carry fourteen clubs around in your arms, you need a golf bag to organize and carry your equipment.

Golf Apparel

Some golf clubs require members to wear the proper attire. It is a member’s responsibility to inform his/her guests of the dress code. Some clubs even request specific attire from time to time. So, make sure that you ask the club before buying your outfit.
