A Brief Message      Jan 20/05

  • Happy New Year to all of my readers. I hope that 2005 brings you the best of happiness in life, especially your golf game.
  • My last newsletter focused on the goals for this golf season; realistic, achievable & sensible. Click here. This newsletter is about new golf equipment for this season.
  • I have an ebook I'd like to suggest to you. It's called "Think and Grow Rich." At first, I thought it was going to be all about making money. As I've read it, though, I've found the ideas can be applied to many situations in everyday life. I've found it quite inspirational. You can get your free copy HERE.

Off Season Golf Part 4: New Golf Equipment

Read other Parts from the Technology & Distance series and Short Game series here, Archives.

Email me if you'd if there's anything you'd like to see discussed or analyzed in the next or future newsletters. Now on to this week's topic.

IV. You have some golf goals & now want to support them with money?

    In my last newsletter, I gave some advice about setting goals for the golf season and objectives to fulfill them. Of course, I suggested if you were to put some money forward to meet some of the objectives, it is best to invest in lessons, fitness and other aspects of your game through books.

   First and foremost, I would spend my money on improving the aspects of my game that will make the most significant improvement in my score. But, many of us would choose the easiest route to improvement; buy new equipment. Let me emphasize, however, that new equipment WILL NOT make a huge difference in your game unless you're using 30 year old clubs and old balata covered golf balls (new balls would make the biggest difference).

   I'm going to first suggest how you should spend your money, and then, if I still can't convince you and you "have to" buy new equipment, I'll give you some suggestions.

I encourage you to spend any extra cash you have on improving:

Improve your short game which includes your putting.

      *dedicate most of your 2005 practice time to it.
      *use a softer ball, if you don't already, to improve your feel.
Dave Pelz's Short Game Bible. (it's great).
      *learn how to read putts better using my "matrix method."

Improve your fitness level.

      *work on increasing the strength of your major golf muscles: legs, adominals,         wrists and forearms. Some cardiovascular training would also help to
        improve your endurance on the course.
      *if you need help with your golf fitness, download a copy of Mike Pedersen's
        Ultimate Golf Fitness Ebook, or join his Golf Fitness Trainer club.

Improve your course management which includes learning about how to pick
   the best club for each shot (most golfers underclub).

      *my site offers lots of advice on course managment such as:
        reading & playing the wind, elevation changes, shot patterns, temperature

      *there are lots of golf instructional books out there that give good advice.

I'll have some more suggestions for you in my next newsletter. The common theme with all of them is they'll help you make real improvement, but they will take more time and effort than buying a new piece of equipment.

What if I still haven't convinced you that improving yourself is the best way to spend your hard earned money? You "need" that new driver or putter.

Well, here is some advice on buying new equipment.

I was just looking through the Feb 05 Golf Digest magazine in which they've published their "Hot List." Wow, is there ever a lot to choose from. How does one decide?

If you don't have a recent (last 4 years) large head driver, get one. You'll hit the ball farther & straighter most significantly on your mishits. If you want more information on what to look for in a new driver, download my ebook on the subject.

Get a golf ball that suits your game. Disregard claims of longest distance. There is not a significant difference in distance between new, high tech golf balls. You want a ball that is soft for feel (short game) and has high spin if you're a good ball striker and lower spin if you're not. I'll have more on this topic in the next newsletter.

I'll provide some more suggestions about new technology in my next newsletter.

A list of resources that have been used to produce this newsletter can be found on my website here.

The focus of my site is to utilize science and math to lower your score. New technology is one way to achieve this, but to be honest, the technology is one small piece of the puzzle.

To actually improve significantly, we all need to:

1. Improve our swings using CD Interactive, Hit Down Dammit!

2. Learn how to swing simpler like the Iron Byron with the great coffee table book, Swing Machine Golf!

3. Improve our physical fitness and strength.
The Golf Trainer Power Performance Programô
and Ultimate Golf Fitness Ebook

4. Improve our mental games. Golf Mind Software

5. Improve our Probable Golf games. Learn how to make better choices on the course through knowing how shot patterns and reading the elements and course better.

Click on the links above to take a look at ways that I personally use myself and recommend you try as well.

Hope I provided some useful ways for to become better prepared for you best golf season ever.
