Golf For Beginners – Picking A New Driver
Establish A Budget
Probably the most obvious of my tips listed here but it is important to establish a budget. You have to know what you are prepared to spend before you even go looking for a new driver. I could sit here and tell you various makes and models but if they are not within your price budget then what is the point?
Square and triangular headed drivers are quite popular these days in the golfing world. The looks of a driver are not as important, what really matters is how you perform with it. You will be surprised how quickly you stop noticing how the driver looks once you start hitting shots.
Sound is something which a lot of people don’t really take into account. If you are a fan of hearing a driver “scream” when it connects then sound might be something which you will take into account. Remember that carbon crowned drivers will always be a little muffled. Always try before you decide to buy.
This is a big one which people need to look into more often. The loft of a driver can really help your game. If you do nothing else, choose a driver with the correct loft. Choosing the correct loft will help you drive it straighter and further.
This is just as equally as important as the loft. It is the driving force of the club. If you have an average or below average swing speed then a regular shaft will help you create more power. A stiff shaft is suitable for faster swing speeds.
Always Try Before You Buy
It is all well and good if you pick a driver that you like because it looks good or perhaps it’s your favourite brand in golf, but what you should always do is to try it out and hit some balls. This will help you make up your mind. This is the one thing you should always do when buying anything in golf.
Get Some Advice
It is quite simple if you are someone who doesn’t know much ten ask some advice. Good advice will direct you better towards choosing the correct driver. Ask people you trust and people who know about the game. This might be your local Professional or a friend in the club.
