Mon, 19 Sep 2011 00:00:00 -0400When it comes to choosing golf equipment, you will always be confused with the variety of equipment available in the market. These come with different shapes, sizes and materials. The decision to choose the equipment plays a very important role as it directly impacts the golf game. The race for more distance from the tee has given rise to manufacturers using various materials in the club heads. The traditional woods are still used today and are popular amongst many golfers.
Wed, 24 Aug 2011 00:00:00 -0400Renting a golf simulator was almost impossible few years ago due to the massive size of the simulator and the cost related to it. Since the traditional simulators were massive, it was very difficult to port it from one place to another. The rent required to hire any golf simulator was almost $2000-$3000 per day plus the additional charge of transport. Since these traditional golf simulators were very massive, it required a large area for installation, which is not easily available. No one even thought of renting one for home, as it required many alterations to the structure, which was not worth if you are just renting one for few days.
Thu, 18 Aug 2011 00:00:00 -0400If you are into any golf business or have any prior experience in it, you most probably would be aware of the passion people have for playing the golf game. There are hundreds of reasons which keep them away from the golf course for playing their favorite sport. Some common reasons which keep the golfers away from the course are bad weather and lack of time. These are the reasons which have increased the popularity of golf simulators and golf simulators have become the second golf course for playing golf. Golf Players can experience the real golf while playing on these virtual indoor golf simulators. Another advantage is that, you do not have to put in much money and time while mastering this game.
Sun, 14 Aug 2011 00:00:00 -0400In other sports, the players aim to gain higher scores. In the game of golf, however, when you say you want to improve golf score, that means that you want to have a score that's lower. For a better game or for you to turn yourself into a good golfer, utilize the playing golf tips discussed in this article. Practicing your putting is one of the very first steps you should take if you want to see significant improvement in your scores. The driving range is not the only place where you can practice. You can practice at home as long as you have a portable putting green (sports houses or shops that sell sporting goods usually have portable golf greens).
Fri, 29 Jul 2011 00:00:00 -0400The most important thing to improve your golf game is to improve your putting skills. No matter how good you are at swinging the ball, but you are not winning if you are not able to put the ball perfectly. Although improving your putting skill may look difficult if you are a newbie, but slowly and steadily working on minor things can improve your putting skills. All you need to do is figure out your problem area and then work hard on that aspect until you master those skills.
Thu, 14 Jul 2011 00:00:00 -0400You will find all types of golf simulators in the market. They come in various shapes and sizes. You would have noticed that some golf simulators are very cheap and are available for less than 10000$ while some cost more that 50000$. Have you ever tried to figure out why is there such a huge difference in the price when all of these simulators are meant for the same purpose of playing simulated golf. I will make things easy for you guys by pointing out the main differences.
Wed, 06 Jul 2011 00:00:00 -0400Many enthusiastic golfers like to be out on the golf course everyday to either have fun or to keep their golf game in shape. But due to work or sometimes weather it becomes impossible to visit the golf course everyday. But this doesn't mean your game needs to suffer, there are many alternatives which can help you keep your game in shape.
Wed, 22 Jun 2011 00:00:00 -0400Every golfer knows that having the right irons in the bag is a vital part of improving their game and, as a consequence, those all-important scores. Whether it's getting that extra yardage and accuracy from the long irons on a meaty par five or having the feel needed to chip to within a couple of inches from the cup, better clubs can often mean higher levels of performance. It proved to be a bright day for Australian golf as Bryden Macpherson ended his country's 57-year winless drought in the British Amateur Championship.
Wed, 22 Jun 2011 00:00:00 -0400So finally you have decided to get a golf simulator for your home. While most of the golf simulator companies would install it in your house for a very little extra charge, still if you are planning to install it yourself to save some extra bucks, you are at the right place. I will explain some common setup used to install your golf simulator. As you know not all simulators are same, so there might be a little changes in this setup which you can figure out yourself by going through the product manual.
Wed, 22 Jun 2011 00:00:00 -0400The Ping G20 Driver has a heavier head than G15 (7 grams more than standard) for greater force at impact. Additional backweighting and a more elongated face shore up misses. (Ping "shaved" the head in the low toe area to meet the 460cc size limit.) The reconfigured clubhead - 5 percent higher moment of inertia on heel or toe hits - combines with a light, 45.75-inch "high-balance point" shaft (TFC 169D or TFC 169D Tour) to boost clubhead speed and, thus, distance. Specifically, the TFC 169D shaft has more flexible tip and butt sections for softer feel.
Wed, 22 Jun 2011 00:00:00 -0400I've heard some pretty good players say that they thought the Ping K15 Driver was going to be too unforgiving for them to play. While the K15 Driver is not going to be confused with game improvement models (like the G15), players looking to be able to work the ball off the tee and who regularly find the fairway now should still be able to find it with the i15, as well.
Wed, 15 Jun 2011 00:00:00 -0400Golf simulators have been in the market since decades. With the advancement of technology, there have been continuous improvements to the golf simulator to give more accurate and realistic game play. There is a continuous debate about golf simulators whether they improve your game or not. According to my personal experience the gap between playing on golf simulator and real course is decreasing day by day and I won't be surprised if huge golf tournaments start to happen on golf simulators instead of real courses.
Wed, 08 Jun 2011 00:00:00 -0400Ping engineers have captured the hot face of the G10 and the solid sound and feel of the original Rapture and put it into the V2 package.By expanding the height of the face and elongating clubhead dimensions, Ping has enlarged the sweet spot on the clubface and provided a very hot face, providing tremendous ball velocity regardless of player skill level. All of them are cheap golf equipment.
Tue, 07 Jun 2011 00:00:00 -0400Much like the AP1, the multi-material construction of the AP2 is generally the same as the previous iteration. The Titleist AP2 710 Iron Set is still forged from 1025 soft carbon steel, and features the tungsten nickel sole found in the original AP2. The appearance of the AP2 is very similar to that of the original, as to be expected. Looking down at address, the top line is slightly thinner which allow some weight to be pushed outside, providing that extra bit of forgiveness I mentioned earlier. Bounce was reduced one degree in the shorter irons to improve turf interaction.
Tue, 07 Jun 2011 00:00:00 -0400If you're like me and find yourself not able to afford wholesale golf clubs this year or you simply don't want to get rid of your old favorites, consider reinvigorating those old clubs with some new grips. Depending on how much you play and practice will determine when you should be thinking about replacement grips. And, of course, better made grips should last longer than less expensive ones. But, overall, after two or three seasons, it's time to take a look at those grips to see if they are still holding up.
Fri, 03 Jun 2011 00:00:00 -0400Most golfers stay away from the game of golf in rainy season. However if you are addicted to this game, you might not even want to miss you golf even when its raining cats and dogs. But before getting out to play, you should take some precautions. Although I am not a golf professional, but I still play golf for fun and also have experience in playing in rain. I am giving some tips so you can enjoy your golf game as usual.
Wed, 01 Jun 2011 00:00:00 -0400In 1967, Ping received a patent for its breakthrough Anser putter. It's also the last time that the company sold ping anser forged irons. The new Anser, a forged multi-material iron, is designed to raise Ping's profile among avid single-digit handicappers in Japan, Korea and other Asian markets. Of course, Ping expects its share of converts in the States, too. The U.S. version, for the record, has an identical head design as the Asian model, the same shaft length, a 1-degree weaker loft per club, and the Project X shaft.
Wed, 01 Jun 2011 00:00:00 -0400The Mizuno JPX 800 Fairway Wood produces tremendous distance by harnessing the power of a 'Hot Metal' stainless steel face and Mizuno's Ultimate Dynamic Stability (U.D.S) technology. U.D.S. technology achieves consistently high ball speeds and tighter overall dispersion by greatly increasing stability on both its vertical and horizontal axis. What this means is that shots from anywhere on the face, even outside the sweet area, will maintain the ball speeds to get the ball where you want it to go.
Wed, 01 Jun 2011 00:00:00 -0400I am a beginner golfer and purchased the Mizuno MP 53 Irons as my first upgrade. I found the club to be very forgiving. It features an innovative Diamond Muscle design and a precision-milled, V-shaped pocket cavity. The modified U-grooves produce the ideal spin rate for maximum playability. The Mizuno MP-53 golf iron offers the perfect optical illusion for golfers, offering extreme forgiveness in a compact clubhead that would not look out of place in a tour bag.
Tue, 31 May 2011 00:00:00 -0400Today, I will check out a new ping golf, that is Ping K15 Driver. Let's quit wasting time and take a look! As the newest series in Ping's SGI stable, it set out with a very defined agenda: get the shot back on line and in play. One big factor in achieving this is their Straight Flight Technology, which locates approximately 10 per cent of the head's mass back and in to the heel, which promotes a square face at impact. The weight in the SF Tec pads comes from the weight savings achieved by utilizing a thinner crown. The end result is an optimal, low and deep CoG and higher MOI.
Tue, 31 May 2011 00:00:00 -0400When you are setting up to a 'classic' iron, what kinds of thoughts run through your mind? For me, I imagine the silky smooth feel of the sweet spot. Like its predecessor, the Ping G15 Irons is an oversized iron designed for players seeking maximum forgiveness. However, several changes have been made which PING believes should make the club even more forgiving.
Tue, 31 May 2011 00:00:00 -0400For starters, if you remember, TaylorMade's marketing campaign for the original Burner irons made it abundantly clear that they didn't engineer the set as a whole, they paid attention to the needs of each individual iron. They maintained the same direction with the new Burner 2.0, though they further improved the weight distribution in each iron in order to improve the ball flight across the board.
Mon, 30 May 2011 00:00:00 -0400I have had many drivers over the years including Taylormade. This is one of the best purchases I have made. You don't have to overswing the club. And it's rather forgiving and accurate. Like the R11 driver, the first thing you'll notice about the TaylorMade Burner SuperFast 2.0 Driver is its white crown. By designing a driver with a black face and a white, matte-finished crown, TaylorMade is trying to create the most contrast possible in order to help golfers align the club more easily. The white crown also eliminates hot spots and glare that are often created with glossy-topped clubs.
Mon, 30 May 2011 00:00:00 -0400The Nike Victory Red Tour Driver is loaded with power and performance. The Victory Red Tour Driver is 420 cc, but delivers power like a 460 cc head and provides great shot-shaping capabilities. Compression Channel offers increased overall compression of the body, producing increased ball speeds across the entire face. For those traditional purists, this pear-shaped head allows for visual confidence and shot shaping execution. The Tour Velvet Full Cord Grip provides the all weather performance of Golf Pride s exclusive Velvet Cord material for a firm, comfortable grip that allows consistent performance and playability. The stock shaft is the Project X Graphite.
Mon, 30 May 2011 00:00:00 -0400Like the original R9, the new TaylorMade R9 460 Driver features Flight Control Technology, a system that allows golfers to change the face angle and lie angle of the driver by unscrewing the head from the shaft and re-attaching it in one of eight different positions.
