Top 3 Common Problems of Golf Equipment
You might have the best golf equipment, but you don’t know that your equipment might have some problems that may drastically affect your game. You may find it fun and proud of yourself to have the best golf equipment, but not at all funny when you find some problems in it. Here are the three most common issues or problems that are preventing most golfers from playing their best golf.
The first common problem of golf equipment is golf club lengths. Golf club lengths are meant to be in harmony with each other from the driver down to the pitching wedge. Meaning, all the clubs are meant to feel the same, so that you can simply swing them all with the same feeling of weight of the club or balance from the grip down to the head.
When your clubs are too long or too short, making the set incongruent, you will lose the consistent feel throughout the set. This is a common way to get your golf club set into a confusing situation. The gap/approach wedge, sand wedge and lob wedge can have a little bit of heavier swing weight feel.
The second common problem of golf equipment is about golf shaft flexes. This is where many golfers get into a lot of trouble. Because golf club manufacturers use various shafts, there is no set standard in the industry to match apples-to-apples.
To be frank – it is all a crap and even the biggest brands in golf club do not pay attention to this in their product lines. Most brands of golf clubs that have the same model name on the driver, fairway woods, hybrids and even their matching iron sets, all have completely different specifications from top to bottom.
The third common problem of golf equipment is about golf grips. Anyone can think that this would be common sense to any golfer, but this is ironically almost overlooked and always taken for granted. If your golf grips do not match with the brand, model and grip size, you are losing the consistency throughout your golf club set and thus creating a hodgepodge effect.
To avoid hodgepodge effect, you need to figure out what you have in your golf club bag to ensure that any kind of hodgepodge has not set in. Firstly, line up all your golf clubs against a wall from driver down through your wedges and look for any major length differences between them.
Write down any inconsistencies. Secondly, inspect all the shafts and look for different flex indication on the shafts which is stiff, regular or senior. Thirdly, if the 2 steps above are okay, look now over all your grips. If they are not all the same you need to have them re-gripped to match as soon as possible and your set should be good to go.
If you play golf with the best golf equipment, you must learn these 3 common problems as they can drastically affect your game.
