What One Piece of Equipment do You Recommend to Help Someone Improve Their Golf Game?
Each golfer is an individual with unique strengths and weaknesses. Therefore, each golfer must honestly and accurately assess their game (ideally with the assistance of a PGA Teaching Professional or Certified Club Fitter) to determine if a certain piece of equipment would be beneficial.
A driver that hits the ball farther and straighter can certainly benefit many golfers. A set of irons which can be hit more accurately would definitely be helpful for many golfers. Numerous golfers have benefited from specific putter designs that help them aim more accurately or produce a better roll on the ball. Furthermore, choosing the right golf ball for an individual golfer’s swing characteristics can really help.
As you can see, there are many variables to consider when answering this question. In general, however, I would highly recommend that all golfers find wedges that suit their game. The wedges in your bag can help you score in a variety of different ways: you can stick it close on an approach shot; you can recover from a poor iron shot, such as from a bunker or areas around the green; you can make the “up” part of “up and down” much easier with a great wedge shot.
The fact of the matter is that no matter how well you drive the ball, strike your irons or roll your rock, sooner or later (usually sooner) you will need a great wedge shot. Get fitted for a set of wedges that match your game and swing. It might be the best investment you can make to help you shoot lower scores.
