The Nuts And Bolts Of Buying Golf Clubs

Mar 20, 2008
Most of the time when you start out in the game of golf, its easy to overlook the value of good golf clubs. So it would be time well spent to talk about how to go about getting good clubs even when you are just learning the game.

There are some things that you want the quality of brand name and golf clubs qualify in that category. Because golf clubs are precision made, every ounce of metal is in the right place so each club is well balanced for the perfect shot, it takes a quality manufacturer to produce this kind of quality. So look to Titleist, Nike, Calaway and Taylormade and to other reputable golf club manufacturers that come recommended by the golf pros at your golf store.

Oh sure, you can go with a "knock off" brand club, but if you are starting your career in golfing with inferior equipment, you harm your ability to progress quickly. If you invest in quality golf clubs, they will last you for years and give you many excellent games. And if the clubs are top notch, they will be able to support you as your game improves in quality as well.

Another important consideration is whether the clubs fit your body type. You can only shoot well if you have short clubs if you are not a tall person or if you have lengthy clubs if you are a tall person. If you try to execute a good game of golf with clubs that don't "fit", you are going to have a hard time getting good shots off.

Sadly, golf pros tell us that the majority of golfers get clubs that are not the right length for them, mostly too long. So to avoid this big mistake, its best to let a gold shop customize your clubs by measuring you for the right club. In this way, they can make sure your clubs are fit to your size, your height and the length of your arms for a perfect grip.

Do you need a tailor made golf set? Another thing you need to think about is whether you wish to go with a tailor made golf club, or one that is pre-made. Tailor made golf clubs are designed based on the special characteristics of the player. For example, if you have greasy hands the golf driver can be made with special grips. If you are petite but have lengthy arms, the golf club creator will perfectly design clubs that will match your body type without taking away the power of your swing.

Only about 3% of players have tailor made clubs so it may be a bit extreme to go for these, but if you are going to become a professional golf player it may be worth the expense. You could still learn a lot about what kind of clubs you need by consulting a company that makes custom clubs, you would then know what to look for in your pre-made clubs.

Your golf game will be spared a lot of exasperation and frustration if you learn the essentials of golf clubs early on. And the more you know about how the brand name and the physical match of the clubs to your body really do matter, the better your overall golf game will be. So take your time and learn well how to find and buy the best tools of the game. You will be glad you did.
