How to be among the golf brands that are regularly new hardware with more technical elements put forward? Make no mistake, this is not golf clubs that make the golfer nothing beats regular training and some golf lessons with a pro to progress! However it is essential to have equipment suited to his swing and its physical characteristics. See below the main characteristics of a golf club to consider.
The Grip of a Golf Club
There are two elements characterize the golf grip for all clubs (except for the putter).
First element turning the key is the size of the grip. Too small or too big grip prevent you from holding your club well. Grip too small may cause a game too much wrist when striking the ball causing a hook effect (pronounced effect left) not mastered. Conversely too large grip will block the game wrists at impact causing a slice effect (pronounced effect right). So how to choose the right size? To determine the right size club take your hand and check that the middle and ring fingers of the right hand (for a right handed) comes into contact with the side of the shoot with his left hand.
Second element characterizing grip is the material used. Families of grip are:
Grip strings: These grips are rubber on which is “sewn” son of the ropes is on all the surface of the grip or on the half (half ropes grip). The interest is to improve grip the club with your hands, and the rain adhesion will be better. However, your golf glove will wear faster!
Grip Rubber base: the basic grip used by the vast majority of golfers.
Grip polymer: it grip the distinction of being more resistant than rubber grip.
Leather Grip: little used, it is nice has a good grip but wears quickly, it is ineffective in rainy weather and it is expensive!
The handle (or shaft)
The commonly known handle “shaft” is an essential part of the golf club. The main features are:
The materials used are either steel or graphite. Steel is the most choice, which is suitable for all golf players. Graphite is an interesting alternative for beginners, seniors or women. The graphite shaft is more flexible than steel and lighter. Graphite shafts allow golfers whose swing speed is a bit slow to have better sensations and send the ball as far as golfers playing fast swing handles steel clubs. By cons they are less accurate than steel clubs handle (due to their flexibility).
The choice of the flexible shaft is directly related to the swing speed. Ideally, a golf shop can measure the speed and flexibility to determine for your swing. We distinguish the following flexibilities: L (woman), A (senior), R (Regular), S (Stiff), X (extra stiff). Usually beginners will move towards Regulars or older shafts, then a senior golfer, he has a powerful swing, will use Stiffs shafts.
The head of a golf club can be composed of different materials. Typically, they are steel. For irons there are two types: cast iron and wrought iron. A forged steel head provides a softer feel and better feeling. The molded head clubs are a bit cheaper and progress of today guarantee a hit almost similar to wrought iron.
Then there are two kinds of form: The irons have a cavity back irons and cavity-free (likened to the blades). The fundamental difference is that an iron blade type requires more precision in the swing but its performance will be better while the cavity irons have more tolerance. Today on the market almost all players play clubs with cavity more or less pronounced. One idea is received forged an iron club and harder to play a molded head club, this is wrong, the difficulty only from the shape of the club head.
Other features exist but are generally standard and does not warrant too much attention: The degree of twist, The swing weight, club length, the angle of the handle.
In conclusion. it is necessary for golfers, before buying a set of golf clubs, woods or a putter to try to practice on grass and to assess the feelings and the control they can provide and make the right choice of club following your game index.
