Finding the Right Golf Bag to Fit Your Needs

Choosing a golf bag is a personal decision based on looks and detailing, but even more so it's a decision based on your own circumstances. There is a golf bag for everyone, but first decide on how you need it to perform for you. The bag is a means of holding and transporting your clubs; so how do you need it to function? Listed here are the types of bags and what they're most often used for: Carry If you're walking, you'll want a lightweight bag with a wide padded strap. Try it on in the store with golf clubs in it to see if it feels properly centered and comfortable to you. The material should be light like nylon or canvas and should be just big enough to hold the clubs, balls, tees, and towel you'll need for play. The bag should also have it's own built-in kickstand so the bag doesn't have to be laid down. Check out the construction of the stand to make sure it's durable. Travel You can get travel bags in soft or hard sides. If you are flying with your bag, the hard sides may be the better opti...

How To Plan A Golfing Vacation

What's not to like about taking a golf vacation? You get to wake up every morning right next to a golf course and you get to go hit a round of 9 before breakfast or 18 after, if you so choose. The course is beautiful, your score is low, the food and drink are superb, and the company you keep is of your choosing. A golf vacation makes for an excellent time, but there are a few things to consider before you grab your sticks and toothbrush and go. Advanced booking is a great idea. Plan early and be flexible about the dates and location and you're more likely to find discounts on travel, hotel, and the golf package. Do you really need to pick the swankiest course during peak golf season or will something a little less popular work for you? Examine what you really want out of your trip so you know what to look for. Specials abound, especially right now. Golf vacation package vs. a la carte is also something you need to consider. There are agencies that specialize in putting together packages for you and ...

 


Why You Need Golf Lessons

There are many golfers who benefit from taking golf lessons, but maybe you're not sure if you'd be one of them. You've never had lessons before and frankly, you don't know if you should take the plunge. Think about where you are right now in your golf game and then decide if lessons would be a good fit. You may want to take golf lessons if... 1. You've never played a day in your life, other than miniature golf, and that doesn't count. You want to get started on the right track and get a broad base built of the fundamentals. No sense starting off with bad habits that may be hard to break down the line. Learn how to hold the club, put power in your swing, and putt like a near pro from the beginning. It can certainly make your game more fun and less frustrating. 2. You're in a rut. You're not getting worse but you're not getting better. You're not having a good time and you're lacking self-confidence in your game. Maybe you keep practicing, but you're not practicing the right thing, i.e. skills t...

 


It’s All In The Ball: Choosing The Best Golf Ball

Golfers are always looking to improve their game, aren't they? Well one way they can see improvement without taking a lesson is by picking the right ball. Don't make the mistake of thinking one size ball fits all; there are different balls for different types of play. Golf ball technology has come a long way. Balls are now better made, fly straighter, and go farther than in years past. They've also been able to make the dimples uniform so the ball is symmetrical. The dimples help decrease the drag on the ball so it flies farther. If you're on the driving range, you will use the driving range's bucket of balls. These balls are different in that they're one piece construction. This makes them very durable and inexpensive - perfect for the driving range but not good for course play. If you're a beginning golfer, you might choose a ball that's of two piece construction. These balls will give you good distance, which you can surely use more of when you're a beginner, but they don't give you a lot of contro...

 


Use a Practice Net to Improve Your Golf Game

A golf hitting net, also known as a golf practice net, might be just the thing you need to take your golf game to the next level. If you're dedicated to improving your score and beating your buddies, consider buying a hitting net. Why? It's a chance to practice your swing for free. You do have the one-time cost of the net, but after that it doesn't cost you a dime. This is the most affordable way to practice versus expensive round after round of golf. That way, when you do get out on the course, you'll have worked out your current golfing issues and lowered your score. If your partners don't know about your practice net, they'll certainly wonder how you've improved so much. It's a time saver - practice at home without having to drive to the course. You'll practice more if it's less of a hassle and doesn't take up a lot of time. Sometimes you only have a few minutes between mowing the lawn and taking the kids to soccer practice, and with a net at home you can make the most of it. Using a hitting net...

 


Golfing for Great Exercise

Some people question whether the game of golf is a sport where you really get any exercise. They argue that golfers who ride in a golf cart from hole to hole and only walk a few feet to swing their club can't really call it exercise. You could argue back that you are using up calories to get in and out of the cart when walking up to your ball and you're also using calories and muscles to swing at the ball. And to further your case, you could add something about it being better for you than sitting at home like a couch potato. Next thing you know, you're heaping an extra helping of dinner on your plate because you feel great about the exercise you just got on the course. But are you really getting as much exercise out of golf as you think you are? Or as you could get? If you're riding in a cart, then probably not. There are three levels of golf exercise: • Riding in the golf cart. • Walking the course while pulling or pushing your bag on a hand cart. • Walking the course with your bag ...
