Buying Equipment That Conforms To Golf Rules

Oct 9, 2007
Some golfers might think they got a good deal on golfing equipment when they found someone selling off a collection of drivers and some odd balls at a flea market. They though they got a heck of a deal when the person included a golf bag. This golf equipment might have been a deal if the golfer was going to use it for amateurish games in the backyard but the equipment did not conform to golf rules for play on a professional golf course and was useless to the golfer for serious practice.

Most people are not aware that there are various lists of equipment that does conform to professional golf rules. These rules pertain to the golf balls, golf bags, drivers, woods and tees. This list ensures that every golfer is playing by the same standards and is well equipped for a professional golf competition at any time. These rules also save people a lot of time because they are not out buying golf equipment that they can not use everyday to improve a golf average.

As long as drivers meet the standards of coefficient of restitution, they can be used for a professional golf competition. Some golfers make sure that they have the right equipment by buying equipment that meets this standard exactly. The custom made clubs meets the limits of the coefficient of restitution by making sure the driver head does not cause any type of spring to emerge when the ball is hit.

The limits of the of the coefficient of restitution will be changing soon and most golfers will find it very beneficial to their golf game if they ensure that all drivers and club do not exceed a limit of .830. This is a new standard that will apply to every golfer in 2008 and if golfers find some non-conforming clubs in their golf bag, it would be a good idea to beat the rush and order replacements as soon as possible.

The United States Golf Association maintains a list of all clubs that do not fall within the new specifications for coefficient of restitution. There is also a listing for golf balls that do not meet the standard and golfers should give these items some stern attention to detail because no golfer wants to be banned from a competition because they have illegal equipment in their golf bag.

Every golfer should be familiar with the way that a driver responds because this golfing tool is used most often on a golf course. The driver will know if a particular brand of golf ball has a lot of spin to it and some might prefer to keep that spin. Any equipment that causes a spin is likely to be a non-conforming piece of golfing equipment and should be inspected to ensure that it conforms to the rules that the USGA has defined.
