Golf is an expensive sport, or so it is known to be. The golf equipment is very costly when you want to purchase a new set of all the items. A cheaper solution can be found when you prefer to buy pre-used articles at relatively lower prices. However, even these articles are of good quality.
A wide range of golf products are available in the market today. It only leads to confusion in the mind of the buyer. Only the experienced professionals or regular players are the ones who can pick what kind of equipment they require. Normal people usually assume that the most costly equipment in the market is of the best quality. This statement is however only partly true. There is no fixed relation between quality and price. While a few products of high-cost may be of good quality, there is no reason to believe that all the low and medium-cost items are of bad quality.
We shall now try to analyze the different types of golf products and see which ones are the best.
These are the most important of all the golf equipment. People say that an expert golfer can play all his shots with a single club, just by modifying the power and direction of the swing. Two persons may require a different type of golf club for the same shot. Hence, the requirement of a golf club varies from person to person.
Golf clubs are of four types- woods, hybrids, irons, and putters.
Wooden clubs have the longest shafts of all and large spherical shape heads. These are often referred to as drivers.
Iron clubs are slightly shorter than the wooden ones and require a lesser degree of precision than wooden ones.
Wedge clubs have a loft angle greater than 44. These are also made of iron.
Putters are clubs with very short shafts. These are used for delicate touches or finishes.
The second most important item of your golf equipment is the golf ball. No play is possible without a golf club and ball. These balls are made of synthetic materials and are about 42.67mm in diameter. There are a number of dimples present on the golf balls.
These dimples have a very important task to play. They affect the trajectory, spin, and feel of the golf balls.
Other important golf equipment comprises Golf Bags, Golf Carts, Golf Cleats, Golf Tees, and Golf Ball markers.
