Golf Lesson #7: What Golf Clubs Should You Buy?
Well you've read all the lessons, so now what? There is information overload when it comes to what clubs to buy. It's overwhelming but don't be intimidated. Remember that golf is a great blend of art and science. Each golfer is different and there is no perfect club for everyone.
Important. Choosing the right club does not mean playing what the pros play. The perfect club for a pro is not necessarily your perfect club. Players tend to get caught in a trap of trying to buy exactly what the pros are playing. This is a bad approach in any sport since there is equipment designed specifically for a very high performing individuals. This includes equipment like racing skis, tennis rackets, track shoes and yes, even spandex running shorts. Just because they fit those individuals does not mean every skier, tennis player, or runner should use the same equipment. Especially spandex, definitely not for everyone!
Golf pros look for clubs that fit a specific need for their swing type, desired trajectory, and spin rate. They also have the advantage of changing clubs with every adjustment in their swing. You can compare that to a skier who chooses a stiffer ski for a certain type of race. While that may be great for competition, the average skier will not have a good time on the slopes. Golf is much the same and the goal is to play with equipment that you can enjoy and that maximizes your game.
