The history of golf clubs - four hundred years in the making
The modern game of golf, as we know it today originated in Scotland around the 12th century. The exact location was on the current site of the Old Course at St Andrews. It was recorded that Shepherds were found knocking stones around a course into rabbit holes. Often players carved their own clubs out of wood and fashioned golf balls from leather bags.
The first reference to a set of golf clubs were those made specifically for King James VI of Scotland by a bow maker named William Mayne. Mayne was commissioned to make the very first set of matched clubs in the year 1603. Although reference to these clubs has been made, no clubs exist from that time.
The best time of year to make that 'big' purchase of golf equipment for next year is now - during the fall and winter months
"I want to wait and see what's new so I can get the 'best' club out there" is the purchasing strategy many use. I have seen clients look each year for the 'golden clubs' and wind up with those they were playing with the previous year while they continue their search.
Here's a challenge for you:
Next April or May, take a look at the bulletin board in the locker room at your club or course. You'll notice it is quite bare except for the new handicap sheets. Go take a look in mid June or early July. I will almost guarantee you will see at least one of those $350-$500 drivers for sale. Why? Because, although it was the newest and best, it just did not do the job, as promised, for the golfer who just had to have it.
As you gear up to work on your golf swing during this off season, I feel compelled to say a couple of things about golf training aids
Golf Training Aids have greatly improved over the past 10 years. Most of them actually can and do encourage swing improvement and have come a long way since the days of the ball on the end of a string that attaches to your hat....to help you keep your head still....remember that one?
Swing improvement tools are generally designed to address one part of the golf swing, regardless of what the marketing companies would have you believe. They are designed to encourage the user to develop the correct feel relative to a specific piece of the golf swing. Then, through repetition you will hopefully develop a sense of feel for the move and thus help your understanding of your swing motion. That said, the old adage, caveat emptor or buyer beware is critical.
Golf equipment: blade golf irons
Blade golf irons will give you superb shots if you use them right and they feel like no other irons you can get. It can however be a bit of a learning curve when you begin using them. Some people incorrectly believe that cavity backs will give you much more, but this isn't true; a good set of blade golf irons can't be beaten so it's time to learn how to use them properly.
Of course, first of all you need to understand that you must hit them dead on as they aren't all that forgiving. It is important to understand that you need to connect with the ball dead on; if you don't connect with the ball properly then it can end up going to the left or right of your target due to the slice.
