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.

Digging Into Bunkers Usually you want to splash your ball and the sand out of a bunker, but when the ball is buried this will cause a skull, so in this situation you need to use your sand wedge to dig below the ball
Cure for Inconsistent Aim When golfers suffer from inconsistently hitting the ball left, right or straight, the most likely cause is leaning too far over their feet, causing poor balance
Fat Shots Hitting the ball fat tends to come from either falling backward on your backswing or overusing your hands and uncocking your wrists too early
