Better Golf Clubs for a Better Swing
Do you know someone who'd love a new golf club? While snow may cover the ground, there may be someone in your life who spends the whole of their December dreaming of a green Christmas, the kind that comes with eighteen holes. Whether they are getting in the last games they can before the start of the New Year, preparing for more vigorous springtime games at indoor ranges, or planning a trip to warmer locales after Thanksgiving, the gift of a new putter, nine-iron, or set shows you thought of them and their dedication to the sport.
Start your search for the ideal wedge, driver, iron, or putter with eBay golf clubs. Go for a brand you know your parent, spouse, child or sibling is already comfortable with or try something new to challenge them. Golf clubs should feel good in hand, make solid contact with the ball, and be durable enough to last for many seasons, so pay attention to quality names for gift ideas. Even if the recipient's golf technique is not the best, a quality golf club from Santa could help them get more distance and reduce any tendency to hit a slice or draw.
What types of clubs do golfers use on the course?
When a player approaches the tee, they will generally use a driver or a fairway wood. They are designed with larger club heads to increase the power a shot generates. On the fairway, a player will use either an iron or a wedge. Irons have flatter club heads to help control the line a ball takes after being struck.
As the name suggests, wedges tend to have a wedge shape to them in an effort to generate loft. They are also used near the green as well as in the sand. Finally, putters are used on the green or on the fringe and are designed to roll the ball in a smooth manner within 50 feet or so of the cup.
What are some brands of golf clubs?
- TaylorMade: The M2 irons and wedges from TaylorMade come in either graphite or steel and feature either a stiff or regular flex depending on what the buyer wants. Aeroburner fairway woods have a version for men as well as a version designed specifically for women.
- Callaway: Callaway has a driver known as "Big Bertha" that is designed for maximum distance off the tee. Buyers can opt to buy drivers, irons, and wedges separately or as a set. The Solaire golf club collection is designed for the female golfer.
- Ping: The BeNi Blue Dot wedges and irons are among the golf clubs offered by Ping. The Alta CB driver offers an oversized head and extra loft off of the tee. The head can also be adjusted to meet a player's needs.
- Titleist: Titleist clubs make it easier for young and old alike to enjoy a round of golf. The CB-775 iron set features clubs with soft grips and flexible shafts for comfort and control to make incredible golf shots look easy.
Can right-handed shooters use left-handed clubs?
Golf clubs are made specifically based on the handedness of each person. Therefore, someone who shoots right-handed will not be able to use clubs designed for left-handed shooters as easily as they would be able to use a club built for their dominant hand. However, it may be possible for a golfer to change his or her stance to accommodate the desire or need to use a wedge, driver, or iron designed for their opposite hand.
