Every golfer, no matter how amateur or professional, needs the right equipment to play the game to his or her full ability. If you do not have the right tools, you will not be able to enjoy the game to its full potential. Plus, gold equipment can be expensive, after all it is gentleman’s game. But that does not also mean that you are to spend a hefty sum of money on your equipment without knowing how, where or when to use them. Some tips given below will help you make the right choice:
It is essential for every golfer to have at least one pair of gloves in use, and one pair as backup in his golfing bag. Gloves do not normally wear off or have a short life expectancy but during a professional match, if something happens to your gloves mid game, then you will say goodbye to the current round you are playing, which is why it is important to have an extra pair. They are important for the grip, otherwise you will not be able to hit properly.
Because of their long lives, golfers do not pay much attention to their gloves and forget about them so care should be given to keep spares ready at hand.
2. Fresh Set of Golf Balls
Every year, manufacturers make new improvements to their golf balls to improve the overall experience of this majestic game. The right ball can make a huge difference in the speed and the style of your shot. You do not have to spend large sums of money, but it is also a good idea to experiment with different brands so that you know which one suits you the best. That way, you can ensure that your optimum performance is achieved.
Besides, if you start collecting the balls after every shot, you will lose interest in golfing almost instantly. So be like me and always carry a fresh set of balls to every golf ground that you go.
3. All Weather Jacket
This is perhaps the most expensive investment that you can possibly make in your golfing kit. An all weather jacket will allow you to concentrate and focus fully under the harshest weather conditions such as rain and strong winds.
But the best part about buying an all weather jacket is that if maintained properly, it can last you up to a decade. So it is a one time valuable investment that every golfer should make.
This may sound like an odd suggestion considering the breakthroughs in smartphones and their camera capacities, but buying a Mini DV camera can greatly help you improve your stance through playbacks and inspection.
The problem with mobile phone cameras is that you will not be able to get a clear view of the motion of your swing. Instead, you will have a blurry view which might not show the details that you need to improve your game.
5. Medical Kit
This is a must have for every golfer. You can very easily pick up an injury or a muscle strain which needs immediate attention, so make sure that you have a medical kit which contains painkillers, bandages as well as a cream or spray which contains Methyl Salicylate, which helps relaxes muscles and ease the pain temporarily.
The best way to practice golf is to have all these things in your golf kit. Good luck playing!
