Be Fitted with the Proper Golf Equipment

Best Golf Instruction Series Part 1

To become a better golfer it is essential to consistently strike shots that travel exact distances.  There are several variables involved in this process including: golf equipment, golf swing techniques, different playing conditions, adrenaline under pressure, and knowing your capabilities on each day.

Starting with golf equipment, the most important component is the golf ball.  Having the correct launch and spin will greatly increase your chances of consistent shot making. Go to a local club fitting center to measure launch and spin to determine the best ball for you. Next, be sure to determine the proper length clubs with the correct shaft, golf grip size, loft and lie of the club head, and club head type that matches your ability level. The higher handicap player will need a more forgiving club head than a lower handicap player. All of these components can be determined at the fitting center and perfected by trial and error on the course. If you have the correct golf equipment, only small adjustments are needed to realize your ball striking potential.
