My Thoughts About Golf Club For Women

The sport of golf today stands a paragon of the modern society, one of unity, inclusivity, and togetherness. What used to be a primarily male driven sport has in the new generation evolved greatly and has seen a large number of women too partake in the sport. And while the number of women golfers still has not reached that of men, the evidence of evolution is present, and gives faith to the dream of equal numbers of both players in the not too distant future.  And while in the perspective of  most outsiders, the playing may be figuratively level, it is the little things that differentiate between the golf played by men and women, and as may be obvious, lie mostly around the finer aspects of tools and techniques, the former of which is the primary aspect of this discussion.

As is obvious, the most important of these tools is the club itself. At first sight, there seem to exist no differences between the golf club of a man and that of a woman, however, as aforementioned, the differences are subtle but impactful. The first difference exists in length. Golf clubs made for men are typically made for the height of a standard man, 5’9’’, while a golf club made for women is made for the standard height of a female, 5’7’’. 

Aside from the length itself, there are a few other differences. One such difference exists in the loft. Women have, on an average, a lesser clubhead speed than men do, hence launch the ball with lesser power. To combat this, the loft in a women’s club is greater than that of a man’s. A similar adjustment exists in the shaft. A women’s shaft is made out of graphite, which makes it lighter in comparison to the shaft of a man’s, to compensate for the lower average swing speeds of a woman.

However, there can be no one-size-fits-all club.  These clubs are made for the more-or-less ‘average’ body types of men and women. In the very probable event that you do not fit these, customisations are available to make your club more suited for you. It is not necessary to pick a club off a rack and start playing. A woman taller than, or a man shorter than the aforementioned averages can use each other’s clubs, provided that aspects like shaft weight or loft be interchanged suitably. The necessity of this interchange is debatable, for it is just as probable that a shorter man or taller woman will have similar specifications in terms of swing speed or club head speed. For a woman with a higher club head speed, a smaller-in-length club can be used with a lower loft, and a woman with a higher swing speed can use a smaller club of heavier, non-graphite shaft.

Such a customised experience is highly beneficial to both beginners and professionals. The former can, with a little help in selection, adapt to a style of golf that is her own, and learn the nuances of the game without worrying about those of her club. A professional can, with her knowledge of the sport, personalise her club to perfection, and with each stroke, can make the game her own. Perhaps the only drawback of this is a high level of prerequisite knowledge, and a deleterious effect on your play if that knowledge were to be incorrect. for while the right combination can better your game exponentially, the incorrect combination would end up being detrimental to your game. This is similar to driving a manual versus automatic transmission car, while the automatic is simpler to use, some would prefer manual to have greater control over their car. And while this effect is achieved, incorrect application and usage could do more harm than good.

Tiger Woods VS Rory McIlroy

A sport is defined not by its rules, but by who played it best. Think of football, and you think of pelé, think of basketball, and you think of Jordan, and when you think of golf, you probably think of Tiger Woods. The 23+ glorious years of the American golfer’s career separated him from the rest, and his innumerable achievements on the playing green made him a legend, etching his name permanently into the golfing fall of Fame, and is venerated as the ‘greatest golfer of all time’.

‘All-time’, is, however, an incredibly long time, and during this time, a new generation of golfers have arrived on the scene, and this new generation is better than ever, throwing the sport of golf into a completely new direction, taking that gut-wrenching intensity that has been associated with the sport since its inception, and spinning it on its head in a subtle yet challenging manner. At the spearhead of this exciting new generation has undoubtedly been Rory Mcllroy. Over 13 years in the sport has given him immense success and many victories in both major tours have earned him the Number One spot in most world rankings, and many critics of the modern era claim him to be the greatest of all time. Sadly for them, but quite interestingly for us, the pedestal of greatest of all time can hold only one.

One main point of difference that must be kept in mind before discussing these two is experience. As aforementioned, Tiger Woods has played professional golf for a much longer time than has Mcllroy, and so dominates most raw statistics.  Woods has a mind-blowing 79 PGA wins and 252 Top25s in the PGA tour,  and 41 wins in the European tour. Mcllroy has a solid 14 wins in both the PGA and the European tour and has 91 Top25s in the PGA.

Another point to mention is popularity. Again, the woods’ experience in the sport has had an effect on this point of comparison as well. Woods is an incredibly famous player, and his domination over the sport during his golden years has effectively made him the face of not just American golf, but golf itself. Among non-golfers, Tiger woods is the more popular, for he is probably the only golfer they know. This can be likened to how Pele is for football(soccer), or Jordan is for basketball. Among the golfing community, however, Rory’s relatively recent journey up the ranks has made him arguably more popular. The battle here sets itself on generation, Rory being the face of the players of today, Woods being that of those of yesterday.

The one area that allows pure comparison, without any bias, is skill and style, and this is something both have In abundance.  Woods tends to embrace the entropy in his game, hitting a haywire shot as far as the rough and then effortlessly bringing himself back into the green, and in doing so effectively displaying his raw skill with the club,  his ability to maneuver through any rough spot and the sheer confidence in actually hunting such spots. Mcllroy, on the other hand, prefers to play the safe game and has mastered it, and thus his ball almost never sees even the fairway. 

In the end, the better of the two depends purely on you, but one thing is for certain; Woods and Mcllroy are the best of their times. Mcllroy grew up idolizing Woods, yearning to be as good as he was, and now people consider him to be even better. Both stand paragons of a sport that has proven to be a source of added intrigue and intensity with each generation. One thing is for certain, though there will be another. Perhaps with the next era of golf would come yet another competitor for the grand pedestal, another vying for the top spots. It could even be one of you.

My Thoughts About Wrist Hinge Golf Swing

If the sport of golf were to appear as a person, it would probably be David Copperfield, because it is in itself a master of illusions. For, what is perceived by those that have no experience with the sport as something relatively as easy as “Just take a club and swing” is in reality riddled with the same levels of complexity in the areas of technique and form as any other sport, and it is undoubtedly this which separates the average golfer from a true professional. The sport of golf demands, from those who decide to dabble in it, an understanding of the physics at play and the ability to exploit it to the golfer’s benefit.

As is obvious, the first step in the long path to golfing success is swing, for the ball does not fly on its own. In order to generate the perfect amount of power in the swing, the wrist must naturally begin to hinge. A perfect wrist-hinge is the first step in perfecting your swing., and as simple as it sounds, it requires a level of practice to attain. On either extreme of the spectrum, that is, too much and too less hinge, the consequences are the same and disastrous- loss in power. The silver lining here is that it does not necessarily have to be a felt-out process, you can know when your wrist hinge has attained perfection. ‘Golf-info-guide’ suggests that the perfect hinge is attained when “the toes point directly to the sky” when the clubhead is at waist height.

After a successful setting comes time for release. Releasing either too late or too early can be catastrophic to your swing. An early release will consequentially have a weaker swing, which will be detrimental to your play. A late release, on the other hand, will cause an unnecessary amount of sidespin to your flight, and this is obviously just as bad.

 

My thoughts about wrist hinge golf swing

The only way to avoid these issues is for the wrist hinge to come about naturally. Forcing a wrist hinge too much can cause wrists to inadvertently tense and thus stiffen. In trying to precise your wrist hinge too much, an unnecessary amount of conscious effort is taken in performing something as simple as moving one’s wrists, thereby causing timing issues.

There is one other piece to the puzzle: Practice. A good swing comes about from knowing the reason behind a thousand bad ones and avoiding them when the time comes. Practicing your wrist hinge will be what unveils the reason behind its failure. The pursuit of perfection emphasized here does not come with a checklist of steps that can be done before and during a swing to act as a magic wand, rather, completely rests on practice. The practice is what ensures your mastery in the sport. It is what will undoubtedly determine your skill set, and it is the only thing that can take you to perfection.

The sport of golf is in no way easy. Something as simple as a wrist hinge becomes a key part to technique, and mastering will require a lot of practice and a keen eye to error correction, but will undoubtedly be what sets you apart from the amateurs, and give your play the boost you deserve.
