They say you are not yet dedicated enough to your chosen sport until you commit yourself to owning some of the most expensive peripherals for that sport. And when it comes to playing golf, it means owning some of the most renowned and most expensive brands of golf clubs.
So if you feel that you can now exit the title of ‘trainee golfer’ and that you can enter the real world of golf, it might be high time for you to buy a more serious set of golf clubs if you have not yet already.
But as a beginner, you might find it confusing which brand to get. So to guide you, here are some tips that will help you find the best brands:
Some Popular Brands
For starters, let us take a look at some club brands that have already achieved a ‘resounding name’ in the industry. Many golfers voice out their preference for the following brands: Callaway, Titleiest, Cleveland, Taylormade, Ping, and Mizuno.
Another key factor is the price. The price usually tells the quality and the pedigree of the golf club. Many golfers agree that the best clubs would not be priced at less than 600 USD. Mid-quality brands on the other hand would play around 300 to 400 USD.
A Personal Choice
But then again, you might notice that even among the golf clubs that are priced above 600 USD, there are still quite a lot of brands for you to choose from. In this case, it all boils down to ‘personal taste’. But since you are still new to this, you might not know yet what you really want. In which case, you might want to postpone buying a first class club at this point.
Reading Golf Magazines
But if you are really itching to get your paws on an expensive golf club right now and your excitement will not allow you to postpone the moment, it will help if you do a thorough research about clubs. This will help you find what you really want. Reading golf-related magazines is one way to go.
Choosing Your Brand
There are some simple guidelines that will help you find your golf club of choice. One is to ‘feel’ the grip. Is it comfortable? Or do you feel like there is something odd? Also, you need to determine the weight that you are comfortable with. And finally, do some swing tests. Try different clubs and be sensitive to how each club feels like in your hands.
Expensive Versus Cheap
Earlier, we said that some of the finest clubs are priced at above 600 USD. But this should not always be the case. There are some instances in which a golfer finds an ideal golf club that is priced at less than 600 USD. Do not force yourself to use a 600 USD club just for the sake of it if there is a cheaper brand that you feel more comfortable with.
