San Diego Golf Schools Equipment 101

Sep 13, 2008
There is a lot of different equipment that golfers in San Diego golf schools use during competitions and practices. There are things that are common, like the club and the golf ball, and there are things that are not so common, like adhesive clubface surfaces and rangefinders. This is a rundown of some of the equipment that pertains to golf, and whether or not they can be used at San Diego golf schools or in competitions or if they are illegal.

First we will cover the more common pieces of equipment that go with the game of golf. The golf ball first appeared as a small ball made of leather with feathers inside, and was called a featherie. Modern golf balls have multiple layers, and have a rubber core. Why does a golf ball have all of those dimples? The ball is covered with 300 450 of them to improve the aerodynamics of the ball. As for clubs, there are three main types: the club, the iron, and the wood. Wedges are irons that are used for short shots. Woods are used for long shots from the fairway or tee, and irons are for the precision from the fairway.

There are many small but important accessories to use when golfing to make your game better and less stressful. A golf tee is a wooden or plastic object that resembles a nail with a small cup on top. These are used to hold the ball up off of the ground to make an easier shot. However, a tee may only be used on the first shot of each hole. Gloves for golf are also a very small but very important necessity. The gloves are worn to prevent blisters on the hand and to improve grip, allowing a harder swing and a farther drive. Usually a left handed player wears a glove on his right hand and a right handed player wears a glove on his left hand.

Towels are important things to keep on hand during your time at the San Diego golf schools. Many golf bags have a ring or clip to which you can attach a towel to. Towels, of course, are to wipe hands, faces, ball surfaces, and club faces. Then we have shoes. The golf shoe is designed with interchangeable metal or plastic spikes on the bottom to improve a golfers control and traction during a swing.

There are some pieces of equipment that you may or may not be exposed to at San Diego golf schools that are useful and helpful during practices, but are illegal in competitions. The first are adhesive pads that can be placed on the surfaces of clubs. These adhesive surfaces create an exaggerated backspin and provide more consistent shots. These are illegal in competition. The next illegal (though useful in practice) things are rangefinders. These can measure the exact distance between where a golfer is standing and the hole. Although they are illegal for the PGA, they do allow individual clubs the option of using them on their course.

Positional guides are invaluable when practicing and learning, but are illegal for competition. Positional guides include things like lasers that project a putting line, special tapes that attach to the club head, and anything else that can do similar tasks.

When you are browsing through San Diego golf schools, if you are interested in some of these gadgets that are illegal, make sure you find out if the golf schools allow them during lessons or at other times on the green.
