The Importance of Choosing the Right Golf Equipment
Choosing the correct equipment will not only help to improve your game, but can also help to prevent injuries during play. You don’t simply want to go to a store and pick up the first set of clubs you see. Each component of the club will directly affect your swing and your game.
A professional will be able to help you choose clubs of the correct length, material and head size to support your game. Not to mention correctly sized clubs will ensure your swing isn’t putting unnecessary strain on your back and body. Golfing involves a lot of repetitive motions and clubs of the wrong size can potentially lead to injury.
Signs It’s Time for a New Set of Golf Clubs
Just like any other equipment, golf clubs wear out and need to be replaced. If you’re not sure whether that time has come for your set of clubs, here are a few signs to help you decide:
- You’ve noticed a change in your game
If you’ve noticed that your game is improving and your handicap index is going down, it might be time to upgrade to a set of clubs with more weight that will help you further improve your game. The same goes if you’ve noticed a negative change in your game. This could mean you need to switch to a set of clubs that is more forgiving and will help you get your game back on track.
- It’s been three years since you bought a new set
The technology used to make clubs is constantly changing, and you could be missing out by using the same clubs you’ve always had. Most experts agree you should only keep a set for three years before you trade them in for a more modern set. Or at the very least have your current clubs assessed by a professional to ensure they are still in good condition.
- You are getting older
Most older golfers require a club with more flex. This will allow the club to bend slightly when it is swung back and when it is swung forward, sending the ball further. If your shots don’t seem to be going as far as they once did, you could be using clubs that are too stiff.
- You’ve noticed a lot of wear and tear on your old set
Even with proper care, golf clubs will eventually need to be replaced due to wear and tear. If the grooves of your club face are becoming smooth, causing the ball to slip or curve, it’s probably time to upgrade. Cracking in the club shaft, dents to the bottom of the club and excessively worn grips are other signs it’s time to make a change.
