understanding and enjoying golf

There are many ways that a golf player can accessorize by buying various items that will improve the quality of the game. These items usually include carriers, caddies, or novelty items. Few people consider the clothing items that can be worn by golfers in order to obtain benefits (both health related and game related). Here are some of the most popular clothing items worn by golfers, and the reasons why they are so popular. You may get a few good ideas for what you can wear next time you are out at the golf course. If this is the case, you will probably notice the benefits right away.

The first goal of golf clothing accessories should be to protect you from the elements of being outside. The most oppressive element is the sun, and there are several ways you can combat it. The first and most effective way to keep your game going strung in spite of massive sunlight is to wear a pair of sunglasses as you play. When the sun gets in your eyes, it has a devastating effect on your perception, and may not allow you to hit the ball to your maximum potential. The sunglasses will also protect your eyes from harmful sun rays. But your eyes aren’t the only part of your body that need protection from sun rays. Whenever you go out to the golf course for a day, you should slather your face and arms up in sunscreen fairly well to avoid getting burned. It’s usually a good idea to also wear a hat for maximum face shading.

Golf shoes are worn by many avid golfers. They are certainly not necessary to enjoy the game, but they offer some benefits. They are designed to make it easy to traverse the grass making up the golf course while keeping the grass in as good health as possible. Walking on the green in regular shoes can be quite damaging, but golf shoes make it so that the grass can easily survive the onslaught of footprints. Golf shoes are about as expensive as regular shoes, but don’t have much use outside of the golf course. If you are planning to be golfing at least once a week, golf shoes may be a good idea. Otherwise you will be fine just using regular shoes for now.

The rest of a golfer’s outfit is pretty much up to the golfer himself. You can wear whatever you feel like wearing. However, it is a good idea to wear comfortable pants that you will feel OK walking around for a few hours in. If you wear something too formal, you will just end up getting a rash on your thigh. Just look at what all the other golfers are wearing, and try to emulate it. It’s best to follow the trend, because the chances are that they know exactly what they’re doing and they know what the most comfortable types of clothes are. It may take a trip to the store to perfect your wardrobe, but the comfort will definitely be worth the time you put into it.

As long as there are no dress codes in the golf course that you are in, you shouldn’t worry too much about what you are wearing. Golf is supposed to be a relaxed and enjoyable sport, so any emphasis on clothing should not be taken too much into consideration. Just wear what you are comfortable in, and wear what has a good benefit (such as protecting you from the sun or preserving the grass that you walk on). Of course, different rules go for golfing tournaments or golf outings with business partners. Use your own discretion to decide what you will wear and the Golf Clothing Accessories you desire, just like you would on any other work day or with any other sport. There is no reason to read too far into it. Happy golfing!

I was perusing Golf for Women the other day and wondered where are the women who wear the golf attire modeled in women’s golf magazines? I’ve never seen women, professionals included, who would dress in such expensive and outrageous clothes!

It’s easy to spend money outfitting yourself for golf. Hats, sunglasses, gloves, shirts, shorts, socks, windbreakers and shoes all add up quickly, even if you shop the sales. Add in equipment, bag and cart and you have to play quite often to keep down the “CPU” – cost per use.

One glossy advertisement showed a model in short shorts (like that’s allowed on courses!) that cost $275, the Tse golf shirt ($595), jacket by Ralph Lauren ($185) and two-toned Utuser shoes ($425). That comes up to $1480; I could never hope to get the CPU on that outfit anywhere near a normal level in my lifetime! Don’t get me wrong; I love clothes. I really love shoes, but could never afford, or want, golf shoes that cost more than the national budget of some small countries.

Granted, you want comfortable shoes that don’t look like something your grandmother would wear, but you can easily find less expensive and fashionable shoes.

I have several really stylish golf outfits, none of them brand name. If I totaled the cost of all of them up it would not come up to the price of the Tse golf shirt. Personally, I’d rather have several stylish outfits and one outrageously priced one.

If I were to wear a $1480 outfit to play golf, I would simply be too worried about getting dirty or perspiring to play a decent round.

Golf is a dignified game of rules,  manners, etiquette and fashion as well. it’s important to know the basics before you play for the first time.

Whether you are playing alone, in a twosome or a foursome, you must wait your turn. You must keep aware of the group on the next hole and wait until they are well ahead of you before hitting your ball.

It’s never cool to “push” the group in front of you. If you are playing with others, wait for your turn to hit the ball; never hit at the same time as another player.

While you wait for your turn, go to your ball and determine what club you’ll need and how you are goingto hit it. This is called “ready golf” and keeps the game moving. Don’t rush, just be ready.

If your team is holding up the players behind you, let them play through. You would simply wave them through, or if they are close enough, ask them if they’d like to play through. You will never make an enemy in doing this!

When someone is making a shot, you should be behind them and you shouldn’t make a sound! It is so distracting to be ready to tee off and just as you pull back, someone decides to jingle in coins in their pocket or noisily unwrap a piece of candy.

Replace your divots. When, in the fairway, you hit the ball and a clod of dirt and grass goes flying, replace it. On some courses you just put the clod back and step on it to press it on; on most courses, there is a sand/seed mixture on your card to put into the divot. If your ball makes a deep impression when it lands on the green, use your divot tool to repair it.

As soon as you have completed a hole, replace the flag and leave the green so that the next players can play. Count your score and write it on the scorecard when you’re back at your cart.

Of course, there are many more rules of golf, but these simple ones will enable you to get through the course without coming to blows with anyone. We must all keep the game dignified, right? Next we talk some fashion!
