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.
