The actual set of golf clubs that you own, doesn’t matter to your golf club membership. Whether they are brand new, branded golf clubs, hot off the designers workbench; a set you found second-hand on Ebay, or even those hand-me downs you found in your grandfather’s loft. It doesn’t really matter.
In fact as long as they are accurate and in reasonable condition, the clubs are probably the least important part of your game. Technique and you are the elements that make the biggest difference when you are out there – with every shot.
That said, each of us will have preferences when it comes down to the golf clubs that we buy, cherish and use.
In fact, one of the biggest selling points that branded golf clubs have is the confidence that comes from knowing that you have a great set of clubs in your bag. The psychology around playing a great round is highly important, as we all know!
Some players decide that off-the-shelf golf clubs are not quite what they want. Whether it might be for personal reasons, such as their height, for example, they feel that what they need is something slightly more unique to them, so they opt for custom made golf clubs.
These are made by specialists, although they need not be too expensive as they don’t have the panache or goodwill of the well-known brands.
So for some, finding someone you develop a good trusting relationship in to make your custom made golf clubs could be a vital challenge in improving your game.
Whatever decision you make, having a set of clubs that you love can make all the difference. By starting off with kit in your bag that you know is of great quality and the only fine-tuning you need to make is you, will ensure that focus is in one direction.
The quality of your golf clubs can be forgotten and you can get on with concentrating for every shot.
‘Good’, as a description for your golf clubs is rather arbitrary. Quality and accuracy are the critical factors. This makes them ‘good’ enough for you to play a decent game.
Whether they are ‘good’ enough to meet the stinging demands of your partners set, by comparison is, if course, a whole other ball game.
Truth is, it’s all too easy to blame the golf clubs you have in your bag and focus less on your own performance.
