Should golfers chip with one club or multiple clubs?

Here is a great article on chipping and pitching techniques from the gurus at GolfWRX. I fully believe that the conclusions presented in this article are correct. I have been playing this game for a long while, had instruction from teachers who I think are the best in the world and have reviewed most of the others and their principles. The following article would be great reading for anyone in the game to sharpen their conviction on the difficulties we encounter everyday in this great game.

From the articles author, “The other day, a student asked me if they should use the same club around the green or change clubs depending on the shot. My standard reply is that average golfers should always use multiple clubs. I feel that it’s easier for them to consistently repeat one swing, and merely change clubs, there…

We would all like to play off grass as we do on the course, however, weather and space control the primary offering by many facilities.

Turning Pro Too Soon?

I know I will catch all kinds of grief for reposting this article and adding my comments but I think that people who follow my blog should know. I AGREE – Stay in school, through college, and play to refine your game!. There are far too many people out there who are looking for the quick buck and not willing to “pay the price”. This college experience is great place to take notes and be ready for the big leagues when you get there or it will tell you where you need to improve.

As the article indicates, there are exceptions to the rule, but look at the exceptions and what are the percentages. About the only direct to pros exception I can think of right away that has paid dividends is Lebron James. The number of players which have made the jump are so small that statistics would consider it minuscule to say the best.

Important facts to note on Golf Clubs

A good arrangement of your golf clubs is the weapon of decision for the advanced golfer. A complete arrangement of clubs comprises of no less than one driver, fairway woods, irons and a putter. A few clubs lately have been supplanted with cross breed golf clubs to supplant longer irons and fairway metal woods.

The driver is the club that is most golfer’s most loved golf club, despite the fact that it is normally not utilized on every opening. The driver golf club is the longest golf club with the greatest head toward the end of the pole. This permits the golfer to hit the golf ball with the best separation, however not always the most precision. Tenets control the measure of the club head. The golf club driver will be the most expensive single golf club in the golfer’s sack.
