We have seen many beginners often making multiple mistakes while buying a new club set or when buying their first set. For those who are not aware of the golf skill set, it is very common for them to buy the wrong gear.
To play your best in golf, the weapons in your bag are crucial. Purchasing the wrong club may hinder your ability of playing and can make you a completely laughing stock while you are on your tee box.
1. Buying any wrong club head meant for irons
There are 3 different club head meant for irons that vary based on your performance and experience.
Cavity Back - Good for beginners and those players who require forgiveness
Muscles back - Good for intermediate and experienced players
Blade - Good for experienced or pros use
For beginners we recommend to start with any cavity back most forgiving golf irons.
With cavity back irons their club head area is bigger and also very forgiving. This means that in case you miss your club much off your sweet spot, then the ball may stay in its right course which is perfect for all beginners.
We recommend with muscle back and less forgiving irons for players with more experience looking to get a better feel as well as get more control of the shots.
2. Buying a club simply as it looks cool or because the pros use
One very stupid and simple mistake often golfers make while purchasing their next club. Perhaps they saw an advertisement or they saw a famous player using it. Not necessarily you have to use it just because some pro is using it.
Often media and effective marketing may make you to buy things that you never need. So, you must avoid such mistake. Rather than buying the latest club try to get a demo of maximum clubs as you can and check the stats about your swing speed, trajectory and also shaft flex.
After seeing these simple stats then you know which club is right for you in the market.
3. Buying any wrong flex
This may be because your ball is slicing. In case the swing speed is within 95 to 110 MPH, then you need a very stiff flex and don’t use regular flex. Balls may be slicing as the flex may not have sufficient time to catch up and become square as it meets your ball.
This may cause your face of club having an opened face and as a result slicing in most golfers. Ensure your swing speed for determining the perfect shaft needed for your clubs.
Avoid all these simple mistakes and go out there and also try your best. Finally, it is fully for you to understand and know how you play your most beautiful game.
Try to do what you can do most comfortably and play with the clubs that you want. Finally, in the end it is all about your number that you put up at the end of the round. Avoid lying about your scores that most of the golfers who are dishonest often do.
