The Most Important Piece Of Equipment You Carry Is Not In Your Bag

From the outside golf seems like a relaxing game, people walking around enjoying a nice day outdoors... And because of this perception some people do not consider golfers to be "true" athletes. In fact golfers themselves rarely prepare themselves like athletes.

Showcase: Ping i-SeriesIf there’s one person to whom we can attribute the amazing advancements we’ve witnessed in golf equipment over the last 40-plus years, Karsten Solheim is the man. His knack for pioneering new designs inspired an entire golf industry to follow in his footsteps, with various equipment manufacturers constantly trying to outdo one another with technological advancements.

No Train, No Gain

If you think you?re too good for training aids, think again

No Train, No Gain

We editors have spent countless hours on the practice tee at PGA Tour events, and have watched dozens of pros use training aids in their practice routines. (In fact, some Tour players believe in them so much that they either own a part of the company or are more than happy to endorse them.) Golf training aids are the real deal, and the old stigma that they make a complicated game even more difficult is long gone. If you need proof, just check out the following pages. You’ll see several models that the best players in the world use.

Find Your Sphere

Choosing the right golf ball for your game can make all the difference

Find Your Sphere

Even golf magazine editors sometimes need to see things for ourselves. Throughout the year, we’re inundated with countless “golf ball test results,” indicating the performance benefits of one ball versus another. We admit there are real differences between golf ball categories—we don’t dispute that. But we’re also clever enough to understand that no two golf ball tests are exactly alike. In fact, they’re all done under different conditions, with different clubs, swing speeds, launch conditions, weather types and a bunch of other variables that are hard to quantify.

2008 Wood/Hybrid Buyer's Guide

What is the freshest category in golf? We think fairway woods and hybrids have benefitted from a ton of new technology, making them more playable and more useful than ever before.

2008 Wood/Hybrid Buyer's Guide

Today, fairway woods have become longer, bigger and more powerful than ever. Hybrids, on the other hand, have become more specific, acting as either long-iron replacements or high-lofted fairway-wood replacements. The key is to begin analyzing your current set makeup in order to determine what’s missing. Need a club that goes 215 yards and stops on a dime? How about a 3-wood that flies almost as far as your driver, albeit a lot straighter? Maybe both?

2008 Ball Buyer's Guide

Choosing the right golf ball is just as important as choosing the right set of clubs. With the right ball, you can quickly add yards, hit it higher and optimize your ballspin on and around the greens.

2008 Ball Buyer's Guide

In golf’s modern era, the small, round dimpled orbs that fill the pockets of your golf bags are truly the sum of their parts. From the materials that make up its cover to how it’s filled inside, a golf ball’s composition greatly affects its behavior on the course. Among other things, it determines how high or low it launches off your clubface and spins around the green and how much it compresses when hit. In short, the modern golf ball is a technological masterpiece, with a number of different varieties built specifically for players of varying skill levels. They’ve truly come a long way since a bunch of feathers were sewn inside a ratty piece of leather.

Also, clubfitting has exploded beyond simple tape measurements and basic shaft flexes.

Grips Buyer's Guide 2007

Despite all the technology in the clubhead and shaft, it's the grip that's really come a long way.

Grips Buyer's Guide 2007Grips have certainly come a long way. In fact, the new grips for ‘07 are more colorful and more functional than ever, thanks mostly to a handful of new material innovations that double as a fashion statement and a competitive advantage. Several models include multi-density rubbers and polymers that lend comfort, strength and tackiness where it’s needed most. Also, they’ve gotten a lot more durable and hold up better in the rain. Check out what’s new, and don’t hesitate when it comes time to put them on all your clubs. It’s a must-do every season.
