I have decided to put together the top questions I get asked. I have organised them by category. I hope you will find the answer you are looking for. If you still struggle to find your answers, feel free to contact me and I will see if I can help.
If you are looking to buy some new golf equipment, where you purchase them should not be a key indicator of the best place. Essentially online is the best place, but that’s my personal preference. Only due to the number of online stores you could browse through compared to driving to each of them. Golf shops come with their pros and cons as well as online shopping. My suggestion is online, via Amazon or any of the other big e-commerce websites. Amazon can deliver your items quicker than the rest, so why wait I say.
Not necessarily. Expensive golf gear is usually only expensive due to its newness to the market. Yes, some pieces of expensive equipment come with very specific uses. But that doesn’t mean you cant achieve the same outcome with a cheaper model.
This is quite a subjective question as everyone will have their own preferences. I tend to go for Callaway clubs. Just a very reliable company to go for in my opinion.
When I started golfing I did use a pair of gloves. I had a pair of white leather Titleist gloves. I eventually stopped using them just for personal preference.
Today’s golf balls vary vastly in terms of how many dimples they have. They range from 300 to 500 dimples.
When I was playing more frequently I only used Oakley lenses. They just did the job and will last a long time if you treat them well.
Golf hints & tips
This is a question that I get asked a lot in the inbox. You should aim to not hit the ball too hard, especially if you are an amateur or beginner golfer. To find out more on golf swinging check out the golf tips page.
Most golfers naturally hold the grip quite tightly when taking a shot. The thing is, you don’t actually need to hold the club tightly. You just have to hold it tight enough to carry it through a shot and no tighter. Just the right amount is needed here.
Having bad shoulder alignment can heavily affect your game and can encourage bad habits that could be difficult to break.
