It is very hard to get started in golf. There are so many things to look out for : rules, equipment, slangs and specific golf vocabulary, just to name a few. All of it sometimes seems confusing to me, someone who has been playing golf for past few years. Now imagine how confusing it must seem to complete beginner. The most important decision that beginners make is definitely their choice of golf clubs. Getting something that doesn’t match their needs might result in hundreds or even thousands of dollars being wasted. No one wants that, so i decided to write this tutorial to help beginners with the process of landing on golf clubs to get for themselves. By the way, here are some recommendations for beginners and intermediate golfers. I think we can all agree that writing a guide on golf clubs for beginners is well worth my time and they would be better off if they spent a little time reading it too.
The key to choosing the best golf clubs for yourself is knowing your swing style and your body in general. Everyone hits the ball with different bias, so the best golf club for a person will be the one that corrects that bias most effectively. That’s why i think that knowing your body is the most important part of the equation on your way to success in golf. So when choosing golf clubs for yourself as a beginner, don’t get advice from some stranger on the streets, or anyone who doesn’t have any information about your playing style. Instead, i would recommend either : going to a golf instructor and finding out the areas where you need work and working on them, or going to your local sporting goods store and trying out many different clubs until you find the one that works best for you.
First and foremost, the most important characteristic of a body to keep in mind when choosing golf clubs for yourself, is your height, or more precisely, length of your arms. These two lengths are related, but that is a topic for later. Length of a golf club that is most suited for your needs will also depend on the length of your arms.
When choosing golf clubs as a beginner in 2019, you should also pay attention to the materials used when building the club. For optimal performance, you want a club that is light and well-designed. Lightness is important because a golf club will be easier to carry around and also because it will be simpler / easier to swing. It shouldn’t be too light though. So when it comes to golf clubs, light is better, but golf club shouldn’t be flimsy or it won’t have enough power on impact with the ball. Material of a shaft is also important, as it determines forgiveness levels of a club and many other important things.
Another important feature of a golf club that will affect your game significantly is the loft. You should land on the loft setting of your golf clubs depending on how you hit the ball. If you tend to launch the ball high, loft setting should be low too, and the opposite. Experienced golfers usually go for low loft golf clubs, because they tend to produce better results. On the other hand, beginners often have problems with launching their balls high, and high lofted golf clubs solve that problem perfectly. So, keep that in mind when choosing a golf club.
