Finding the Best Senior Golf Clubs For Your Game

  1. 1. ==== ====Age does not hinder you from the golfing profession. Check out this great video ====When youre considering changing golf clubs - perhaps so that they suit you more as you get older- you might want to think about changing to golf clubs that can give you extra distance as well asbeing more forgiving. You might consider irons that are custom made or even custom fitted to yourexact size and swing style; you might prefer hybrid clubs (especially to replace the long irons, saythe 3,4 and 5 iron); or you might give some thought to a clone wood, which could give you most ofthe performance of high ticket clubs at a fraction of the cost. Those are just a few of the manydifferent things to keep in mind at this critical time.We mentioned clone clubs above, and you might be thinking that there is something a little bitshady about the concept behind these. Its true that although clone clubs differ slightly from theoriginals they are styled on, many golfers do find that they are better suited to the adaptations theyare making to their game. The problem many older players - and lots of younger ones too! - face isthat the original clubs are often far beyond their means.We are not condoning copyright infringements, of course, but the purpose of this article is not tojudge, just to offer practical advice.So, thats so called clone clubs covered!Now, lets talk about the shafts. Whether you decide that you want to change your driver, woods orirons you need to think about the shafts. In general, the older we get, the slower we swing. So,now might be a good time to think about more flex in the shafts you have fitted - either cistom fittedor off the rack - to your choice of new clubs. The key is to find clubs fitted with shafts that haveenough flex so that they can help you to gain more distance. Flex enables the club to bend as youmake your swing and connect with the ball, giving you that precious distance, and extra control tooin many cases.Manufacturers of senior golf clubs includes companies like Calloway, Adams and Nike - in factmost of the major manufacturers now have a line of senior clubs. As we mentioned earlier, youshould choose clubs that give you sufficient shaft flex, but not too much. The amount of flex yourequire will depend on your ability to swing the club, the extent of any restictions on your swing,and your swing speed. Choices here include ladies flex, senior flex, regular flex, stiff flex and evenextra stiff flex (although this last option is rarely used by anyone other than the fastest swingingpro golfers!). This is one of the areas where vanity can get in the way - but for the good of yourgame, dont let it! You DO want to be a better, more effective player dont you? Remember, if theshaft flex does not match your swing, you could be leaving yourself wide open to aggravatedswing faults and miscalculations. generally speaking, a senior golf club has a little bit more flexthan that of a golfer just starting out in the game. That is perfectly normal.
  2. 2. Most golf pro shops will stock clubs with a variety of shafts with different flex ratings. take a trip tospeak to your local pro and try some clubs with different shafts out on the practice range. Thisenables the senior golf player to find which club feels right for them and which will give them thedistance they are seeking. Before you buy any club, trying as many different shaft flexes as youcan. This should enable you to find the perfect one for you, and avoid buying the wrong one onlyto regret it later. Often you will find that pro shops will custom make golf clubs, or at least customfit them for senior golfers. This way you can have a special set of clubs made that are perfectlysuited to your game.You might find that you wind up buying an expensive custom-fit senior golf club; or the perfectsolution for you could be a discounted club. In the long run it really does not not matter, just solong as the club or clubs you buy are the right clubs, and have the correct amount of flex to suityour game.Remember, though that you should buy something durable. In fact, this is the point at which youneed to be critical if you are considering discount clubs. Keep in mind that even though the clubgives you the distance you want, that still might not mean it is the best. Many discount clubs canloosen up the more you use them. This can cause the flex to change over time, and it can end upbecoming softer than you need.The senior golfer of today has a number of advantages over senior golfers in the past. The rangeof senior clubs available today are often designed more for their use and flexibility. In the pastgolfers often only had a few shaft flexes to choose from, and progressed through the range themore experienced they became in the game.Nowadays things are very different. Choosing from the range of different golf clubs, and gaining anunderstanding of what clubs best suit your game makes life easier for todays modern seniorgolfer.
