Best golf club sets for women

Choosing very good club set as a woman, as a process, is not that different from choosing golf clubs as a man, with few difference. But, if you’re reading this, it’s more likely than not that you don’t know how to do either, so i should probably get to the point. The main idea of golf is that you’re supposed to deliver the ball into the hall with as few shots as possible. The main part of equipment that you use for that task is your golf club set. When it comes to buying golf club sets, there is no shortage of options, in fact, quite contrary. Ladies who are just getting started in the world of golf often get confused by the myriad of options available today. As a rule of thumb, you should first read online reviews about any particular golf club set you’re interested in, also paying attention to reviews and ratings on Amazon can be helpful.

What’s the difference between men’s and women’s golf club sets?

With men being, in general, taller and more physically built, while women being less of both of those things, it is natural that women would want different sets of clubs and manufacturers would want to make them. That wasn’t always the case. Women didn’t participate in golf as much in the past. Being shorter means that women also have shorter arms, which require shorter golf clubs to swing them effectively. In order to be easier to swing, women’s clubs also tend to be lighter. Club sets tend to include somewhere from eight to fourteen clubs, just like the ones for men. Women who are beginners tend to find it easier to play with golf club sets that include fewer clubs. It’s probably easier to use because they don’t have to wonder which exact iron is most useful in any certain situation. There’s just fewer golf clubs to choose from and in my opinion, that makes whole process simpler. If you still want to easily choose golf clubs as a woman, check out this guide on GolfClubsGuru website.

Which golf club sets are the best?

Your ultimate choice depends on many factors, budget being the most important. There are some club sets that are very good and fairly priced, such as Callaway Strata series. Then there are those made with top notch materials but they also have very high costs. Good example of the latter is kalea set made by TaylorMade. If we compare TaylorMade and Callaway Strata golf club sets, the former is definitely better, but it also costs about four times more. Plus, the latter comes with golf club bag, which adds further value to the whole package. It must be also noted that difference in performance between these two sets isn’t staggering. Sure, Kalea will help improve your results by a significant margin, but if your goal is to enjoy playing casual golf, the difference in end results shouldn’t matter all that much. There are many other options between these two extremes of affordable and expensive women’s golf club sets. Callaway Strata series itself has Ultimate golf club set, which is a bit more expensive than other club sets in same series, but also much better. It is obviously still no match for golf club sets that cost more than thousand dollars, though.


Other than that, my main advice would be to look out for your specific needs. If you are taller than average, look for golf clubs that are made for taller women, or even better, have them fitted to your specific needs. I think it’s best to buy golf club sets at local retailers, whether they are for men or women. Some people have had a lot of success with buying them online though, so that option shouldn’t be dismissed, either. I like buying golf clubs in person because it gives me opportunity to properly size them up and make sure i’m getting the best bang for my buck.

Origins of modern sports – brief history

Yesterday, when i went to sleep, this question popped in my mind – why did so many sports originate from Britain?. This morning, as i was waking up, i decided to do a little investigation to get to bottom of this. My logic suggested that it must be due to their colonial expansion. They were present in pretty much all continents all over the world, so their culture and sports spread widely. The other option is, that due to their expansion, they were exposed to a lot of cultures and therefore were able to adapt some of the sports from those people. There is evidence that a team sport, very similar to what soccer is today, has been around in China since ancient times. So British might not be as original sport-inventors as we might think. On the other hand, a game similar to soccer has been played all around the world, and it is not unlikely that British just made it into a decent game with rules and structure.

   On the other hand, golf, which is my favorite sport ever, has not originated from England, but from Scotland. But again, despite the fact that Scotts were first to play golf on amateur level, it was British who made it into real sport – made specific rules. And first country where golf had gained mainstream acclaim was in fact Britain. And it’s quite certain that it was because of British influence that Golf landed in USA and Canada. After that, golf has gone on to become popular in many Asian countries as well, namely Korea and Japan. That led to golf manufacturing becoming major industry in both these countries. Japanese, in fact, make one of the best irons for beginners right now. For more information about that, read this guide. make There is also a version that golf was developed in Netherlands, but i doubt that highly, because there is very little evidence for it.

I unfortunately don’t have a lot of information on origins of tennis, but it is known that it has originated from northern france, and it was played with bare hands at first. Few centuries later, rackets were used and that’s when we encounter the word “tennis” for the first time in history books.

 One interesting opinion that i’ve read ties British innovation to their abundance of time. As you may know, British empire was the one who led Industrial revolution, so people started to have more free time which they needed to kill. And it’s not like they had video games at the time, so they turned to same old sports that they used to play, but now they categorized and clarified it. And that’s how most of modern sports were born. I must say that it’s pretty satisfying explanation for me.

Can golf club reviews be trusted?

I’ve been a golfer for good 20+ years now, and the sheer number of people reviewing golf clubs has always surprised to me. To me, reviews are completely unnecessary. I think people should go into the store, start picking and trying golf club sets one by one, and finally pick one that they like the best. Whether it is the looks or material or anything else, i think the result is the same. Especially in modern age, basically all manufacturers make really good clubs, and it’s pretty hard to say any of the new golf club sets are bad. They are just different types of players, and for different heights, but you can find out about both of these issues by trying out the clubs at the store and having them made custom fit for your height. And one more thing – i think proper fit is the most important metric of all. I’ve seen guys who spent days and nights reading about golf gear and bunch of other tutorials on how to choose them, and when they finally pick something, it’s not their fit and their game suffers a lot. And that’s one of the reasons why i’m kind of turned off by whole review thing.

 It’s not like i’ve seen any of these reviewers go like “this  X club is bad so don’t buy it, go for the Y club”. No, they always have to make it complicated – list minor details of X and all the tiny flaws it has, and same thing for Y club. But at the end of the day, you have to make a choice, and unless you are a matrix, you can’t process all this information to make proper decision. It’s not even worth trying, because it will get you super stressed and depressed in the end. Not to mention the opportunity cost – the time you waste on reading these reviews. Some people, who really like knowledge, can sit around for days finding the best product to buy. But that’s when their love of knowledge actually works against them, because in the time they spent on that, they could have created value in their fields of expertise, and gotten paid handsomely. So you can either buy a product which is good, but with few flaws, or spend days and nights trying to find a perfect product, golf club in this case, if such a thing even exists.

 So i’ll leave you with this – simplicity is the key. I find Amazon’s review system to be very valuable because it’s super simple. I go on the site, search for what i want, and set ratings to 4.5 stars and above. Basically everything i get is high quality product, and i have only spent 3 minutes finding that out.

Succeed in high school as junior golfer

It’s been a long time since the last time i tried out for high school golf team, but i see a lot of kids asking questions about it, so i decided to share my experience as well. I’m in college now, and actually don’t play golf anymore, but believe it or not, i was quite good in my teenage years and regularly made it in my high school golf team. It wasn’t result of much practice, either. It’s just that my father is huge golf fanatic, and would take me along with him whenever he went to play. And i went, because i enjoy to play golf, and would be doing it now as well, if it wasn’t for my busy schedule. With part time work and studies, i just can’t find a spare time or money to get my own golf gear and visit nearest golf course. Back home, my dad bought me this great junior golf club set (second in this list of best juniors clubs by GolfClubsGuru), but i’ve grown and become too tall to play with those now. And don’t want to ask my dad for new one, as he’s already sacrificing a lot for me. But as soon as i graduate and get my life on track, i will definitely get back to my roots and start playing golf again.

 Now that we’ve covered my background, let’s get to the point. My first advice for junior trying out for high school golf team, would be to focus on your game. I know it sounds obvious, and it actually is obvious, but when most kids are in high school, they’re obsessed appearing perfect and fitting in. So you might have some technique that you use and is advantageous to your game, but might be tempted to give it up just because you’re the only one using it. Under no circumstances should you do that. Just do you. If others express curiosity about your style of game, explain what you’re doing and keep going, but never observe others and try to find things wrong with your style. That never ends up well. Although there’s fine line between what i advised before and not listening to any objections at all. And it’s going to take me long few pages to get through that, so i’ll let you define that line instead.

 And my second biggest tip would be to play for fun. Not for extracurricular achievements or whatever other goal you might have, but just for fun. Do your best at the tryouts, but just do it for the fun. It will help you stay relaxed during the game and keep your head cool, which will end up very beneficial for you. Having a static set of goals that you need to achieve in order to consider yourself successful is very stressful and will put you under a lot of pressure. Instead, i would advise to focus on doing your best whenever you can, and learning from your failures and enjoying your victories to the fullest. I think that’s the healthiest way to approach playing the sports in high school.

How can you have fun without drinking?

Though we enjoy the occasional drink just as far as anybody it is great to see more booze-free drinks out there. In addition to ensuring you’re fresh as a daisy for the early morning run the following day, this new wave of carbonated beverages are for the most part much lower in calories compared to booze. Another round? Proceed.

Once upon a time, booze-free beer was either tasteless or completely disgusting, but you can now find all manner of fascinating alcohol-free baits about, by the recently established Heineken 0.0 into Brewdog’s punchy Nanny State.

Interestingly, when you just take out the alcohol, it ends up that beer can actually be quite good to you as well as being tasty. Containing B vitamins and folic acid, it can even serve as an isotonic post-workout drink. What’s not to love?

A dark ale that is surprisingly malty and hoppy, Brewdog Nanny State packs a punch in the colour department. At 0.5%, that is about as alcoholic as an overripe banana.

The non-drinker no longer need to select between carbonated Coke and warm orange juice due to this new wave of intriguing soft drinks and mixers on the industry.

If you discover most soft drinks overly candy, superior tonic water is a excellent choice.

A small producer of intriguing combined cordials and soft beverages, Square Root creates a wide range of beverages including Root Beer, flavoured tonics and seasonal specials like a rhubarb soda.

Touted as the first non-alcoholic soul, Seedlip is leading the way in the booze-free revolution. A distilled and carefully crafted mixture of flavoursome botanicals, it is a grown up drink which allows you to enjoy the cocktail hour encounter with no alcohol.

Uniquely flavoured and somehow gin-like as a result of this botanicals, it is sugar-free and comes in at only 0.02 calories per serving. Drink it with tonic water or within a cocktail for a sophisticated, booze-free night outside.
