Golf Aids Can Help Beginners Play Well

Jul 7, 2008
Although golf looks easy, it is an extremely difficult game to master. Good, consistent mechanics are the basis of a good golfer. There is a great deal of training and practice involved in developing good swing mechanics. Choosing the proper clubs, balls, and other equipment can improve your chances of playing well, but also can be a challenge for a beginner. Fortunately there are some tips and golf aids that can enhance your golf experience.

One way to learn the fundamentals of golf or improve your game is by attending a beginner clinic or reserving individual time with a golf trainer or club professional. Most public and private courses include a staff pro who is available for basic training sessions for a set rate. Usually, the staff pro is a certified instructor and can identify areas that need improvement and offer you help in the areas where you need it most.

Private lessons can be expensive so a cheaper alternative is a group lesson or golf clinic. Some golf schools offer training clinics that attract many participants - these are usually taught by professionals or respected players but are usually more expensive and don't provide one on one training that some people need. It is better for most people to have individual lessons to gain the basic skills to play the game.

Purchasing the right golf practice aids can help a player improve their game without having to be out on the course for hours a day and can, in fact, allow a player to develop their golf game in their own backyard. One of the most popular practice tools to use is a chipping net, which can provide the amateur golfer a focus point to aim at, and a mechanism for collecting the balls once they've been chipped (provided you hit the net, of course).

Another popular practice tool for those wanting to develop their golf game at home or at the office is a putting return system. This type of system has many features that help the player improve such as an automatic ball return after a successful putt.

Purchasing a set and having them custom tailored to the player is the most advisable thing for a new player to invest in. Even the most basic clubs can be custom tailored to a player, and that tailoring can be the difference between struggling and succeeding as a player. Most course pro shops can custom grip and custom size the shafts of the clubs (the most common adjustments made) to a player for a nominal fee. Investing in this service can immensely improve the feel of the game for a beginning player.
