because of the enormous market out there. We have come up with 5

deciding what skill level you’re at. Are you a beginner just
starting out, an intermediate weekend golfer, or an expert
golfer who plays all the time? This is critical because there
are different types of equipment designed to help every level of
player. Playing with expert equipment if you are just starting
out will only hurt your game.

spending limits. You have to know what type of budget you are
working with. Golf can become very expensive if you don’t stay
within your means. There is equipment and accessories designed
for every budget, you just have to know where to look.

slice the ball? Are you a long or short hitter? Do you sink many
puts when you have to, etc.? You must know these qualities of
your game. When you go to your local shop or golf pro it will be
easy for them to get you fitted correctly if you know this

golfer or an addict who plays all the time? This will determine

articles, newspapers, and anything else you can get your hands
