Tips & Guides
Golf, which has been known as a very slow and laborious game up to very recent times is now rapidly transforming itself to one of much enjoyment and relaxation thanks to numerous innovation and inventions that have sprung up in the industry. Technological advances have helped in the development of not only high-tech golf clubs, but golf courses as well! Many other useful inventions that have come up in the recent past include different types of home golf training machines from types that can train you on how to swing perfectly to types that can teach you to put accurately. Read on if you wish to learn more about some of the more innovative latest developments in the industry.
Tracing where the ball lands after each long-range shot in the initial stages of the game has always caused a lot of problems to golfers. New technology has come with a perfect solution in providing glasses that filter the light rays coming from most objects on a golf course other than the white golf balls, thus creating the necessary contrast to bring out a highly sharpened image of a ball against the green background of the course. This makes it very easy and convenient to quickly find a ball hit to even a very distant region. These glasses can help you to save a lot of money by re-using balls several times over instead of abandoning as a lost ball and continuing with a new ball. These special glasses are available online and to a lesser extent in some conventional golf goods stores.
Putting that comprises the most nerve racking and important stage of scoring in golf can be practiced to perfection by installing an artificial putting outfit complete with a hole indoors or on your lawn or back garden. There are several models of such outfits available with relevant components including a putting green for use indoors, a putter holding several balls inside its shaft for quick putting practice without having to pick up the ball for re-use after each practice stroke, complete with necessary advice and instructions,
The tees have significantly lost their previous complexity to handle. Now the latest tees come with a fibrous layer of strands resembling a brush over which the golf ball can be placed as if suspended on a cushion of air, thus protecting the club head from scrapes and damage in case the swinging club head were to come a little lower on the ball. Thus, except in the case of a very badly hit stroke, the head of the club will clear the hard surface of a tee without causing any damage to its head as well as the tee or the turf. These tees may still not be available with many golf stores except online stores. If you find a place, buy at least a dozen as still they are hard to come by.
Now mini computers are replacing the need to keep scores yourself. They definitely make life easier by tracking everybody’s shots and keeping scores in addition to doing the required calculations. The number of players that can be handled may differ from one device to another depending on their respective capacities so that you will have to take this aspect into consideration when buying one. Beside a miniature computer, how would you like to get a wristwatch with pre-installed handicapping programs?
There is now an accessory for cleaning golf balls for re-use. The golf ball cleaner, similar in size to a microwave, can clean many golf balls in one cleaning within a few minutes. After cleaning, the balls resemble new ones; and the cleaner affords a big saving by recycling golf balls which otherwise would have had to be discarded. Most cleaners possess the capability to clean golf club heads too of grass stains, mud and dirt. This too is a big convenience to golfers as it is a very difficult and time-consuming task if it were to be done manually.
Inventions and innovations have greatly contributed to make golf a high tech game. Besides the development of new accessories and far reaching improvements effected to existing accessories, even hitherto routine and time consuming jobs too have now been reduced to tasks that can be accomplished very much easier and faster than before.
