Many golfers are aware that theirr golfing gear is important, but aren’t quite sure how to put it to the best possible use. The following will explore a few golf equipment tips that can help improve your game.

Read Equipment Reviews

If you’re in the market to buy some new golfing equipment, take the time to read customer reviews about the items, especially if you’re ordering online. Something like this Callaway Strata review can help you determine whether a piece of equipment is right for you. Look for reviews that highlight the aspects of the game you’re working on or specific techniques you like to use. This way, you can get an idea of whether the piece will work in the way you’re planning on it working.

Of course, the world of online reviews isn’t as simple as it once was. Be sure to read reviews critically and be wary of severely negative or comically positive reviews. You might want to take a look at the other reviews a person has written to get an idea about whether their disposition is altering their perspective or not. Some people are happy-go-lucky and in love with everything; some people are miserable no matter what wonders fall into their lap. You also want to keep your eyes open for whether or not a review has been paid for or not: if it has, that doesn’t mean it’s not accurate, but it means you’ll need to read a few more of the reviewers’ posts to get an idea of how critical they are.

Study Your Equipment

This one might not seem like that much fun, especially because you got your golfing equipment so that you could play golf, but it is crucial. Learn about what each club is for and when you shouldn’t use it. Using the wrong piece of equipment at the wrong time can end up making the game way harder than it has to be. It can also result in the development of bad habits when it comes to form, which can haunt you for years if you’re not careful.

Get Comfortable

You knew one of these tips was going to revolve around practice, didn’t you? It’s critical not only that you practice but that you practice with your equipment. This means taking what you’ve got out to the club and trying things out. If the club feels foreign in your hands or your shoes aren’t broken in yet, you can bet you’re not going to be as comfortable and relaxed, and your game might suffer for it. To mitigate this risk, get comfortable with your golfing gear.


Consider An App

While applications might not seem like your standard golfing equipment, some have been found to really improve a golfer’s game. Many people can practice but aren’t able to study their form and technique objectively, especially if they’re practicing alone. The solution to this is a golfing app. This is something you’ll download onto your phone and use to analyze your golf game. Most of them work by using the camera application on your phone to capture video of you golfing and then to highlight areas where improvement needs to be made.

Don’t Forget Vision

When people think of golfing equipment, many focus on the clubs, balls, and tees. Some people think about gloves and shoes, but not enough people consider ways to ensure their vision isn’t hindered while playing. This might mean a hat that keeps the sun out of your eyes or sunglasses (because sunscreen on a sweaty face drips into the eyes and stings, and that’s a whole other type of vision problem). If you need to wear glasses, these should absolutely be brought with you to the course. If you’re caught in that brutal game of: do I want to wear vision glasses or sunglasses, consider the vision glasses and hat combo or glasses that transition between standard and sun when it gets bright outside.

Keep Things Clean

Take good care of your golfing equipment if you want it to last you a while. This means cleaning your equipment and drying it, and ensuring that your bag is dry as well when you get home. Part of caring for your clubs involves scraping out the grooves, which can get filled with soil and other debris; this can be done with a simple scrubby brush or a golfing tee. You also want to be cautious of tossing your golf bag around (especially when you’re putting it in your trunk); some clubs (especially your driver) can bend easily if it lands funny. Likewise, you want to be careful shutting the vehicle trunk to be sure you don’t dent any handles.

The above tips should help you get the most out of your golfing gear. As with any sport, practice is the key to improvement.
