Used Golf Clubs, Practice All You Want

By: Robert Riles

No matter how confident you are, if you have never played golf, you should not risk going in and buying a set of golf clubs right away. It is always wise to borrow clubs from a friend or a colleague, get some experience and then think about making a purchase. Furthermore, it takes time to figure out the kind of clubs that suit your style of playing. You could however, go in for used golf clubs, pick them up from the local sports store, and use them till you are ready for the big leagues. Not only will these be cheaper, but will help you practice as much as you want without worrying about damaging the clubs.

Some tips to follow while going in for used clubs are,

Rental clubs:
There are many clubs around the world that specialize in golf. These allow people to come in, play a game or two by borrowing all the necessary equipment for a nominal fee. These rental clubs are typically situated within the driving ranges, and offer all customers their range of products. People can borrow used clubs, balls, Tees and other items, use them for a period of time and return when done. It is almost similar to going to a book library, borrowing books and reading them over a period of time. A good opportunity to try out different clubs, drivers to see which gives you maximum power or distance. Once you have determined which clubs are the perfect ones for you, purchase can be made from a reputed store.

Beginner's clubs
A golf club set consists of many clubs, each used for a different kind of shot, or to give maximum distance. But for beginners, they are generally advised to use half a set, till they get the hang of the game. Thereon, they can try all the drivers and work their way through the course. The half set could be a combination of clubs, some with a sand iron, pitching wedge and a putter ofcourse. A driver is not really needed when learning the ropes of the game, but if the person is comfortable they can give it a shot. Using a 3 wood is what helps most beginners get the ball flying through air, and if they were to use any of the 3 irons, they will notice the ball doesn't go too far. By using the half set, beginners can make the choice of which club to use easily, and get going, instead of wondering which club to use when. It could be a bit overwhelming at the beginning, but as they play, they will realize its not so complicated after all.

Used golf clubs are ideal for people to practice, and beat up with, since they dont have to worry about breaking or damaging the clubs. Sometimes, beginners tend to put too much pressure on the club while getting the ball off the tee, and this could lead to bending, or breaking of the golf club.
