It's all about your equipment

Around 2.5 million people play golf in the UK and over 55 million worldwide. The UK golf retail market brings in £350-£400 million. This includes gadgets, swing trainers and golf clubs. Players are always looking for the next gadget to take their golf to the next level. They buy into the claims that technology improvements will deliver. Only to see a minimal improvement before seeking yet another upgrade to their equipment.

The good news is that I am in total agreement about the equipment being to blame for poor golf. The bad news is that the equipment isn't your irons or your driver. It is your body! Modern life is killing your golf swing. Muscles are becoming stretched and weaker from inactivity and poor posture. If I were you, I would get a postural assessment from a physio or good trainer before even thinking about getting the latest driver. Want to hit the ball further? See a golf conditioning specialist in conjunction with a golf coach. That should give you an extra 30-50 yards to brag about instead of the latest driver.
