GOLF GEAR GAFFES
Joel Tadman highlights nine equipment mistakes that could be holding you back
s golfers, we are faced with a set of tasks during a round of 18 holes that require the right tool (a certain club) to execute them efficiently. If the tool is worn out or missing altogether, it makes the job that much harder. Here are nine of the most common pitfalls club golfers are guilty of when it comes to the gear in their golf bags. Hopefully, not many of them are familiar to you…
AWORN-OUT WEDGES The chances of seeing a checking chip shot diminish drastically the more worn the grooves on your wedges are. Wedges in play for 100-plus rounds versus new wedges produce a significant drop in spin. You should consider changing your wedges every 12 to 18 months if you play regularly.
CLUBS OFF THE SHELF Manufacturers do many things to make their clubs catch your eye on the shelf, but that doesn’t mean they are right for you. A proper custom fitting gives you piece of mind that the club you’ve invested in has been built to suit your swing, rather than you trying to swing in a way that gets the club to perform.
WORN-IN SHOES There may be some truth in shoes becoming more comfortable the longer you wear them, but this doesn’t last forever. As soon as you can see signs of wear, replace them to ensure you’re not A fitted, up-to-date set of clubs might just save you a few shots
