As we come into an exciting few months of golfing tournaments, such as the Ryder Cup at the end of September and the British Masters in mid-October, you might be tempted to pick up a set of your own clubs and head out on the green. While the weather remains pleasant for the next few weeks, it might tempt you to try your hand at golfing and see what skills you can develop! There are a number of big tournaments coming up, but before you decide to give Rory McIlroy a run for his money, you might want to take a look at some of the equipment and gadgets that could help you improve your golfing abilities.
Golf is a great sport for many different reasons, whether you are catching up with friends or you simply want a day to yourself to relax and improve your game. It has even been said that golf is good for your health; just think about how much walking you do from hole to hole!
Once you’ve set yourself up with your own golf clubs, you might want to think about investing in the following useful equipment; whether you are a beginner or getting back into the sport after a break, you might be surprised how much they can aid your efforts.
This little gadget has proven to be very helpful for a number of golfers. A rangefinder helps you to determine the distance between yourself and another point on the golf course; most likely the hole you are aiming for. This can ensure you make a better shot and adjust your swing accordingly!
It may help you feel more confident about playing, as you remove any doubt about distance or which club to use. You might also want to use the rangefinder to determine how far away any possible hazards are, thereby avoiding anything that might hinder you.
Don’t forget to invest in good quality rangefinder batteries to ensure its always powered up when you need it!
Investing in a specific golf glove for your next game can offer an improved grip for your clubs. Most golf gloves are made to contour your hand and fit perfectly, thanks to compression technology. Having great grip can help in developing your golf skills hugely, making sure you can make the best possible shot.
Often fashionable as well as practical, golf gloves are great for all weathers and available in a variety of colours to suit your taste.
If you’re new to golf and have been inspired by this year’s tournaments, you might benefit from using training aids before you start playing properly. There are a number of training aids to help your swing and grip. Many will set the correct hinge position at the top of your backswing in order to help you align your stance when swinging.
Training aids are geared towards improving your accuracy, therefore producing lower scores on the golf course! There are also putting aids to further help your accuracy and even speed on putts of all lengths.
More importantly, make sure you enjoy yourself out there and don’t forget to catch all the action in this year’s golf tournaments!
