This is a tough feat to achieve when we have no confidence in our equipment that we are using. Many of us try to figure out what the best set of irons to use, which driver will give me the max distance, which putter will give me the best spin. I don’t know about you, but I am plagued by these questions, I don’t only enjoy golf, I obsess over it.
I have found when my confidence is broke my faith that my golf clubs are the top of the line and best for me usually gets me back to a level headed state. It took a lot of work on my part to prepare my psyche like that, first things first is I had to find the Men's Golf Club Set which I thought was the best for me. I opted for the Adams a12 OS for the reason of it is a very forgiving iron, something I can trust to get me out of trouble when I’m in it thick.
Now that I have the Men's Golf Club Sets I am comfortable with I have to go to my local shop where I can get the necessary work done. I went down to my local shop Vegas Golf and I spoke with the manager, took a few swings on the lie bored, got my measurements done and they promptly adjusted my irons lie and adjusted the length. I am fairly tall at 6’03 so we had to add some extensions to get the length of the club perfectly optimized for myself.
Now I got my Irons set I needed a putter, I don’t care who you are, if your short game up to par you can’t make birdies. I have met very few people who got the ball to go in the hole from 50 feet out; unless your Tiger Woods get yourself a decent putter.
With so many putters to choose from how are we supposed to know which one is best for us? Well, you can go the way many amateurs have with the belly putter. Although if you go that route with the belly putter you may be disappointed in 2014, when the UPGA might vote to ban the belly putter. My best suggestion is to go and get you a 33”, 34” or 35” blade putter and start practicing. Odyssey has just released a new putter called the flip face putter, giving you the option of having either a white ice insert or the option for the new metal x technology. Giving you the best shot on having a winning round of golf depending on whether the greens are fast or slow.
I have no suggestions when it comes to purchasing a driver. I am afraid it really all comes down to personal opinion. Maybe add a few extra inches in length, but other than that you are on your own.
