wrong clubs

There is no need to mention the importance role of clubs in golf games. They are the main parts of the game and they decide if your shots are successful or not. Because of this, you have to be very careful in selecting golf clubs for your games. Another thing to bear in mind is that you will have to pay quite a lot of money to purchase these clubs. This means if they are not suitable for you or if they cannot do their work properly then you may waste more money to change to new clubs. In some cases, it is the wrong choice of club that make you lose the whole game. It does take some time for a golf player to get used to using their golf clubs and know which one is used for which hole. But there are some quick tactics that can help you recognize if you are using a wrong one and how to fix it.

You are mimick others

You are following a golf game on TV and see that your favourite player is using a loft. The next thing you do the day after is to buy a new loft (if you do not have one) or to start using your loft (if you already have one). This sounds stupid but it still happens somewhere out there. Or maybe you just get an advice from your friends and want to try new clubs. All of these scenarios can happen and that is when you start doing it wrong. Using the loft for example is not wrong but the club is designed to maximise your distances and you have to do something before you decide to use it. You have to compare the speed of your swing for a 150 yard shot and the angle of the loft you are using. The bigger the speed the bigger the angle you should choose.

 

Choose the good club for a spin

The spin is a real challenge for any golf player and it is not easy to get the right spin. Using the right golf club for a spin is also a key to get the shot right. For this shot, you have to choose a club that is not too heavy in comparison to your body weight. Because in this shot, your body balance is an important thing that make it a success. A heavy club may make it hard for you to keep the balance you need for the shot.

You slip the grip often

I once was hit by a club because the player next to me slipped his club. Believe me, it was painful and I do not want that to happen to anyone. Unfortunately, this happens quite often and you do not know how to correct it. If you are strong then you can choose a smaller grip but if you are lacking of this then a bigger grip is better for you. This is very true for women who have limited choices of grip due to manufacturer’s decision.

 

I hope that you know more about your clubs now and next time you will be more confident in choosing the right one for your games.
