This is a blog I started after trying to play golf for the first time. It’s about how to set up your golf clubs for beginners.
I hope this blog can help you learn how to play golf.
I bought my first set of clubs at Dick’s Sporting Goods in the spring of 2008, and I’ve been playing ever since.
My name is Paul Boesen and I live in Germantown, Maryland. I graduated from University of Maryland with a degree in Computer Science and I am currently working as a Software Engineer at Amazon.com Corporate Headquarters.
I have played golf every summer since I was 14 years old so it is something that has been part of my life for most of my life. When I was younger I learned to play golf at the local course and when I was older, with more experience both on the course and off, better equipment made it easier to practice and improve with each round.
The reason why there are so many beginner’s clubs out there is because people tend to get into something they enjoy, like golf, and want others to share this experience with them so they buy some clubs. But if you don’t know what you want or want to get into something new then it is best not to start small and try
Your golf clubs are the most important piece of equipment you will ever buy. They can make or break your golf game, so you need to learn how to choose them properly.
There is a lot of advice out there on how to set up your golf clubs. Some of it is useful, but much of it is misleading or plain wrong.
To help you choose the right club for your swing, we have put together this guide on how to set up your golf clubs for beginners. It should be helpful for everyone from casual players to professionals and amateurs alike.
We hope that by the time you finish reading this, you’ll know exactly what clubs you need, why you need them, and how to get them setup the right way.
Up until now, I have assumed that what you might call “golf” was confined to the indoor variety. As a result, I’ve been writing about equipment like this:
So it’s time to change my assumptions. It is time to tell you how to set up your golf clubs for beginners, and why it matters.
For one thing, there is a huge price difference between the equipment used by professional golfers and that used by beginners. The professional set has much better clubs, at least in the expensive department; for example, pro clubs often have heads with titanium faces, which are lighter than steel but can be whacked harder. And although I’m not a golfer myself, I know from being asked by many people how good their golf is that there are several differences between that kind of equipment and what a beginner needs.
If you’re a beginner golfer, the first thing you need to know is how to set up your clubs. Teaching this basic skill is an important part of golf, because if you don’t know how to set up your clubs you’ll be swinging with the wrong clubs and getting bad results.
The wrong club will most likely cost you a shot, may cause a slice (a hooking of the ball that can cause it to go far right of the target line), or may cause a hook (which is even worse). A hooking or slicing shot can end up in the rough, where it’s hard to find again; and if it doesn’t get into the rough, it’s more likely than not to go over the net (the barrier on each side of the green) and into hazards-and that’s where it ends.
So setting up your club properly is something every golfer needs to learn. It’s easy enough for anyone who understands simple geometry to do so with a little practice. The key is finding out which way to turn the shaft when you are setting up the grip-that is, when you have got all your clubs together and ready to play.
It’s a good idea to have a golf club set up so that when you swing the clubhead will hit the ball in the exact same way every time. For example, if you want the clubhead to strike the ball with a slight hook, then put the shaft and the grip so that when you swing the club from left to right, you’ll hit a slight hook. If you want it to strike with a slight fade, then put the shaft and grip so that when you swing from left to right, you’ll hit a slight fade. If you want it to be dead straight all of the time, then put it away and forget about it!
You can also make your golf clubs more forgiving by putting them together in such a way that they may open or close up on your backswing. If they open too much on your backswing, they might not close enough on your forward swing, so they won’t work at all. If they open too little on your backswing, they might not open enough on your forward swing, in which case they won’t work at all! It is best to have them opened just enough on your backswing so that when you get into trouble during your swing, they’ll help you get out of it.
The most important thing to know is that the clubs are different lengths, and they have different head shapes. Beginners are just like everyone else, but as soon as you have a full set of clubs in your hands and you start hitting balls you’ll see that the clubs aren’t quite working for you.
The club head is the part of a golf club that contacts the ball when you hit it. It’s shaped like a little bowl. It has a long shaft to hold it. The shaft is usually made from graphite or steel but can also be made from carbon fiber or titanium. It’s hollow inside, so it won’t get stuck in your throat like a solid piece of shaft would.
The head can have grooves or not, depending on what kind of golfer you are. There are two kinds of grooves: grain and channel. Grain grooves run parallel to the direction of the swing (the way your club head moves). Channel grooves run perpendicular to the direction of the swing (the way your club head doesn’t move).
The shaft is where everything happens in your swing. It holds the head in place, and guides it through its range of motion, but even though it’s hollow it doesn’t help you hit the ball at all
In the world of golf, there are several different kinds of people. There are the golfers who play every day, there are those who play once in a while and then go on vacation for a few weeks, and there are those who play once a year and never play again.
The latter two groups have one thing in common: they do not understand that you have to set up your clubs for the shot you plan to take. For example, if you want a shot that is 310 yards (276m) long, but with an angle of 50 degrees, then you need to set up your driver with a shaft length of 397cm (155in), and hit it at 111 mph (179km/h). That is what I call setting your clubs properly.
As hard as it is to grasp this concept at first, I urge all readers to do their best to try it out. The result will be that you will be much better able to putt than most other golfers on the course.
