Clubs for Beginning Women Golfers

Clubs for Beginning Women GolfersLearning to play golf can be intimidating for anyone, and for women it can be particularly difficult to get up the nerve on that first tee and hit the ball. The best thing to do for women learning the game is to take lessons to learn the basics, practice to instill muscle memory and then get out on the course and play. The time invested in learning the correct swing and practicing can result in years of enjoyment on the golf course. Using the right golf clubs can help the beginning woman golfer achieve accuracy and distance.
Choosing the Right Equipment
Technological advances in women’s golf clubs make the game more fun for women, especially if they are beginners. Women typically are shorter in stature than men, have less upper body strength and have a slower swing speed than men. These factors can affect accuracy and distance. Fortunately, playing with the right clubs for your game can go a long way in accommodating women. To buy the correct clubs for your swing, ask for advice from your teaching pro and get fitted at a good golf store that has experienced, helpful staff members.
The Golf Club Shaft
Women need advice about which golf club shaft and club head suits their swing. A shaft is composed of either graphite or steel, and there are five grades of stiffness. The more flexible the shaft, the easier the club is to hit. Graphite shafts are generally more flexible than steel shafts and are often recommended for women golfers. A flexible shaft is appropriate for a female golfer with a slower swing speed. While most women take the standard club length, very tall or very short golfers may need a longer or shorter club.
The Driver Clubhead
Clubhead size has increased over the years. For beginning women golfers, a larger club head is appropriate. A large clubhead will provide a larger sweet spot which is more forgiving of miss hits typical of a beginner. For beginners who have a problem launching the ball into the air, a driver with a loft of at least 9.5 degrees can remedy this problem. If, after trying out a driver with a 9.5 degree loft you are still having trouble, try going to a higher loft of up to 15 degrees. The driver can be considered a 1-wood, although it is not generally used on the fairway.
Fairway Woods
Fairway woods have deep clubheads made of titanium or steel. They are referred to as woods because years ago clubheads were made of wood. Beginning golfers usually find the driver and the fairway woods the most difficult clubs in the bag to handle because of their long length. Many golfers carry a 3-wood and a 5-wood to use on the fairway. The lower the number, the further the distance you will get using the club. Some beginners find that they hit a better shot off the tee with a 3-wood than a driver. In the fairway, women may find it easier to hit a 7-wood or a 9-wood than a long iron, although hybrids are generally used for that purpose.
The Hybrid
Hybrids, sometimes called utility clubs, have become popular clubs in the golf bag. Women generally find them easier to hit than the long irons they replace, like the 3, 4 and 5-iron. Women golfers with a slower swing speed appreciate hybrid clubs because the placement of the center of gravity allows for greater impact when the ball is hit along with a higher trajectory. The shorter club length enables more control and greater accuracy. Women’s hybrids have higher lofts, lighter and more flexible shafts, larger heads, shorter lengths and thinner grips than men’s hybrids.
Irons and Wedges
In previous years, many golfers carried a set of irons from the long 3-iron to the short 9-iron, along with some wedges. Today, hybrids have replaced the longer irons which are difficult to hit, especially for women beginning golfers. Many women no longer carry the 3, 4, 5 or even 6-iron. So which irons should you carry? Keep in mind that you according to official Professional Golf Association (PGA) rules, you are allowed 14 clubs in your golf bag. If you have a driver, two fairway woods like a 3-wood and a 5-wood, the 4, 5 and 6-hybrid, a pitching wedge, a sand wedge and a putter, you are left with a choice of five additional irons. You may opt to carry the 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9-iron, or, like some players, stick with the 7, 8 and 9-iron which are easier clubs to hit.

The Proper Putting Stance

The Proper Putting StanceGet Your Head Over the Ball

If you have been missing a lot of putts lately, odds are you do not have a proper stance when putting. The stance for a normal golf shot and a putt are much different. The grip is still the same, however, with putting you want your body to be much closer to the ball.

When putting, you should line your body much closer to the ball. The club head should be flat on the ground and square towards the marking point. An easy way to tell if you have the proper stance is to line up for a putt and drop a golf ball directly from the spot between your eyes. The ball you drop should land on top of the ball you are going to putt. From this angle you are less likely to make judgment errors. You can see the back of the ball perfectly.

You Have to Feel the Putt

Has anyone ever told you that you have great touch? Well if you haven’t heard it  that’s ok. After all, you are here to learn right? The following Easy Golf Tip will teach you a practice tool that will give you the touch you need to make the ball fall into the cup.

Line up in the middle of the practice green for a long putt. By long putt, I mean 25 ft at least. Face your putt to the fringe of the green. Hit your first putt so that it goes off the green and a foot or two into the fringe. Hit your second putt so it falls a foot or two short of the fringe line. Now, hit your third putt so it lands somewhere between the first and second ball.

Once you get your third ball in the middle of the first two, hit about 3 more putts that all fall within the first and second ball. You should have the stroke down. Now to really get the feel for the putt, you must close your eyes for the next shot. Use the same exact putting swing you used for the previous few balls. Nothing will change except your eyes being closed.

The goal is to keep hitting balls that land between the first and second one while keeping your eyes closed. This will help you get that all important touch when approaching a normal putt.

If you look at any professional basketball player, they can all hit free throws with their eyes closed. It is the same motion and the have a feel for where the hoop is. The same concept applies in golf.

Improve the Speed of your Putts

Nothing in putting is worse than leaving the ball short. It’s an awful feeling knowing that no matter what would have happened, you’re ball wouldn’t have made it to the hole, even on the perfect line. So how do you gage the right speed of a putt? How do you practice this? In the following Easy Golf Tip, I will cover a simple way to judge the speed of a putt, and how you can practice until you are a pro.

I am sure you have noticed that if you play golf in the morning the grass might be shiny and if you play in the afternoon the grass might look dull. If you see shiny grass, this means you will be putting with the grain. Putting with the grain will create a quicker ball speed, thus you need to lay back a little on the putt. If you see dull grass when putting, this means your ball is moving against the grain. Putting against the grain means your ball will move slower and you will need to putt with a bit more force.

I know a great tool used to practice judging the speed of a putt. You first need to lineup for a putt about 4 ft away. Lay your driver on the green directly in front of the hole so the shaft of the driver is blocking the way in. Make sure the shaft is on the ground and not elevated. Take aim at the hole and hit your 4 ft putt. If you hit the putt too lightly, the ball will either not reach the shaft of the driver or it will hit the shaft and stop rolling. If you putt the ball too hard, the ball will hit the shaft and go right over the hole and keep rolling. The perfect putt will hit the shaft, hop over it and fall right into the cup. The perfect speed of a putt will want to stop about a foot past the hole.

Reading the Green

Reading the green isn’t as difficult as it may appear, and yet very few amateur golfers read the greens. It is not only for professionals. If you want to improve your handicap, it starts on the putting green. I am sure every one of you has missed a putt because you misread the slope of the green. Maybe you should have hit the putt 3 ball lengths outside the cup instead of 2. We all make mistakes. The following Easy Golf Tip will give you examples how to properly read the green.

A very simple analogy to improve your green reading skills is to pretend you are dumping a bucket of water on the green. In order to find the slope of the green, just imagine which way the water would flow.

Once you determine the slope of the green, pick the line of your putt. Set the club square to the marking point, not the cup. Keep your feet perpendicular to the club face. You want to pretend you are hitting a straight putt to your marking point. It is important to treat all putts as straight putts.

Once you have your marking point and are set to hit the ball, find a closer marking point on the green about 2-3 feet in front of you. This will help minimize error over hitting a long distance putt.
