- Do you frequently feel that new equipment will help you?
- Do you decide to get properly get fit for equipment then change from it a few months later because you got bit by the “I have to have new sticks so I can talk about them” bug?
- When is the last time you have changed your putter, irons, woods, or driver? How many drivers have you had in the last 3 years?
- How long does a club stay playable in your bag before you decide that it isnt the right one anymore?
- Are you constantlyseeking the new “tour” shafts?
- Do you miss the center of the face (hit it all over the face – or just on the toe) and blame the club?
If the above questions expose you, then it is time to come to grips with the fact that you can’t buy a game and you must spend time correcting the parts of your game that need work. No one gets fundamentally better without practicing the correct way for them.
It is important understand that the best players dont change equipment until it has bee PROVEN to them that a different club would actually be better for them.
Golf is challenging enough without constant change. Every player needs some familiarity and to have a belief in his equipment. Constant change erodes confidence, and each one of us needs as much confidence in our games as we can get. Think before you spend.
