The newest golf clubs are much more high tech than even a few years ago. It seems easier than ever before to improve your game with a new golf club. The modern golf clubs are more lightweight and have larger sweet spots. They’re designed to help you hit more consistent shots, while allowing more room for mistakes. The old blade style (solid club head with no cavity back) golf clubs left no room for error. You had two choices, hit the golf ball perfectly or settle for a bad shot.
Does every new club you buy help to lower your score? We all wish it were that simple. Focusing solely on the invention of newer, better golf clubs can give you false hope. To explain: most of the amateur golfers out there now are expecting the golf club to fix problems with their swing. This attitude can leave you very frustrated and also help in emptying your wallet.
When the focus is on improving your game, there are many other aspects to consider. Sure, having a good set of well fitted clubs, and golf balls that perform better is helpful, but so is your training. The core to playing successfully in any sport is to have a proper routine that consists of strength, flexibility, and balance exercises, as well as consistent practice. Golf is no different.
High demands are repeatedly placed on the muscles used in the golf swing. In the normal golf swing the lower back and other core muscles are of prime importance. If your core muscles aren’t strong enough, your body will make adjustments to transfer the force. This can compromise your ability to play consistent golf.
Much can be done to improve your game with just minimal effort on a regular basis. By regularly doing exercises to strengthen and improve the flexibility of muscles, you’ll see marked improvement in your performance. While the clubs can help for the best overall results, condition the body so it’s capable of getting the most from your new clubs.
