Today I want to talk about technology and how it can benefit your game. There can be so many different clubs to choose from, especially drivers, that it can be overwhelming. It is very important to try different drivers to get a feel of what you like, taking it one at a time to see which features work best for you. The key is to find one that you like and stick with it. Just because you have one day that you drove the ball poorly does not mean that the driver is bad. Anything could have gone wrong on that day. If you stick with the clubs you like, you will have a better chance to get a better
feel for them in the long run. Now, if you are doing the Black Belt Golf System, and you feel like you are getting stronger, then you might go down to your local store to check your swing speed. You want to make sure you are swinging with the correct shaft. This usually does not mean that you have to actually change driver heads unless the shaft that they are installing does not fit into your current club head. If that is the case, then you have a very good reason to change but if not, there’s no need to go to that extra expense.
The Black Belt Golf System is a long-term system that takes time to learn just like your golf game. The same goes with your equipment, take your time when you are in search for your driver, try all the ones that you believe might work for you, then pick one and work with it. There are those times when you buy one and you hit it at the store but it just isn’t working for you on the course. If you have gone out 3 to 4 times and it just does not work for you, then go get your money back for that club and search for another one. Once you find the one that fits you right in AND out of the store, stick with it.
Now, if you are a golfer like me who just does not like to change his clubs at all, this may be a little more difficult for you. I have had drivers for 5 to 6 years at a time and irons for just as long, I am forced to change when my clubs get cracked and I start loosing the distance that I once had with them. I realize that I am not a majority in this department, but there are a few of us out there who will wait until our clubs are no longer up to par. I suggest before purchasing your next driver or next set of clubs, go in and get fitted and sized and make sure that you are getting the right equipment for your swing. Things can change over that long of a time span and you want to make sure that you are swinging the right club for you.
