Golf-Game for Newbies?
If you have decided to take up golf as a hobby you will be
rewarded with the benefits of fresh air, exercise, and the
addition of many new friends and acquaintances. Like any project
you approach in life your attitude and expectations will
determine your enjoyment of the game.
Take stock of your personal traits. Are you overly competitive?
If you are, remember the road to a low handicap is littered with
bad shots, bunkers, water hazards and triple digit scores on
your round. You will invest a lot of time in practice. Welcome
every hook, slice and 3 putt as a learning opportunity. Even
Tiger Woods needs a coach to help him with his game.
If you like to meet new people golf provides you with
opportunities for social interaction. You will get to meet new
people in a setting in which you both have an avid interest.
This makes for easy conversation and more opportunities to
improve your game. Most clubs offer single players the
opportunity to play the round together, if you would prefer to
play alone just mention this to the club pro when arranging your
How much golf equipment do you actually need. Golf can be a very
expensive game but there are affordable options. A high-end
brand name set of clubs can set you back several thousand
dollars but a good used set will cost you a few hundred dollars.
Before you buy clubs it is a good idea to visit golf stores and
club pro shops. You can test out different types of clubs,
determine which club length is best for you, get to know the
different types of grips available and learn the difference
between graphite and steel shafts. You can learn about the type
of golf ball that will best suit you as a beginner. Having a
golf ball with the correct compression will help you make the
most of your game.
If you want to
increase the exercise benefits of golf you can
choose to walk the 18 holes. When you are choosing a golf bag
you will first need to decide if you are going to walk or ride,
your choice here will be a carry or cart bag. Golf bags are
available in a range of materials so choose one that is suited
to the climate in which you will play most of your golf. Golf
shoes are important, make sure they are comfortable and
waterproof. A rain suit is also a good addition to your golf
Should you take lessons from a golf professional? Your budget is
the deciding factor here. Golf lessons are expensive but if it
is within your budget it may be worthwhile. You will find that
lessons will raise the standard of your game quickly. A more
affordable way to take lessons is to purchase one of the many
training programs available on video and dvd. Many seasoned
golfers use these programs to raise the standard of their game
and new golfers can learn at their own pace.
The above are just the basics of getting started in the game.
Before you lift a club, develop the right mental attitude.
Remain positive, quiet your mind and envision you shot before
you hit the ball. A good mental game is half the battle on the
road to a low handicap. Above all enjoy!
