Video Golf Tip | Choosing Golf Equipment

The selection of the proper golf equipment is very difficult in today’s environment; there are so many golf clubs and golf balls available. What I recommend if you are a new golfer is not to spend a lot of money on new equipment. Look at GolfSpan’s auction site for a used set of golf clubs or invest in a starter set, which has a couple of woods, a few irons, and of course a putter. You should also look carefully at purchasing what is known as a utility club, like a seven-wood or a nine-wood. It’s a great addition to your golf bag because it is easier to hit longer distances. As far as golf balls are concerned, if you are a new golfer, go for a golf ball with a harder cover, they’re durable and can withstand poor swings. This means that they are going to last longer and you won’t have to buy as many. If you are a more advanced golfer you might want the softer feel of a balata ball which is a soft cover ball, but be ready to spend more money because they cut very easily, especially if you do not strike the ball perfectly.
