What are the best budget junior golf clubs for a 9 yr old beginner?

Question by B-Rad486225: What are the best budget junior golf clubs for a 9 yr old beginner?
My son is just getting into golf and I want to get him a basic set that will keep him interested. I don’t want to go crazy with the price since I don’t know how well he will take care of them. We’re still working on the responsibility thing. Thanks.

At 9 years old, it’s important to ensure that the clubs fit him properly. Probabaly the best advice would be to speak to a golf professional about this. Most golf clubs (courses),have a club pro who would be happy to spend a little time with you and your son to give you proper advice. The other thing of course is that your son will outgrow his first set of clubs rather quickly so you may not want to spend a fortune.
You might be advised to enroll your son in some lessons with a reputable pro in your local area. Let the pro guide you along and make recommendations. I can’t overstate this. Getting your son started on the right path will help him to develop good habits, rather than bad ones which are difficult to break later.

What is the best weather to go to the driving range?

Question by SilverStar: What is the best weather to go to the driving range?
I have recently picked up golf, sorta. I like going to the driving range with my driver and hitting a few balls out. But what’s the best weather for this? Some say it’s when it’s windy so the ball can carry better, others say a clear sunny day, even though it’s hotter. What’s your opinion?

Best answer:

Answer by x-15a2
Warm (not hot) weather is best. When you are learning it’s best to go when the winds are light or still. This way, you can see what the ball is doing with your swing and you won’t wonder if the wind is enhancing a slice or hook.

Q&A: What is the best set of golf clubs for a left handed beginner?

Question by benjamin_pittsley: What is the best set of golf clubs for a left handed beginner?
I want to purchase my first set of golf clubs. I have not been golfing too many times but I am pretty athletic and a quick learner. I am not trying to be a pro but would like to have fun. I usually spend a little more than average on my sporting equipment because usually you can get better quality and if nothing else at least it makes you more confident. I want to spend around $ 1000.00 on clubs and I am wondering what else I should buy shoes, bag, glove, etc. I would also like to know the basics when it comes to club selection, offset, shaft length, stiffness, etc. Someone who could summerize for me would be great!!!

Answer by Golfing Girl
I am left-handed but play right because it was easier for me to learn that way and club selection is greater. Golfmith has an excellent selection of right and left handed clubs though. They also have a golf simulator that tests your swing-that will help determine what kind of clubs you need. Stiff versus flex, speed rating etc. Even though I am a lady, I have a very fast swing speed of 125+ mph so I need a very stiff graphite shaft so I chose a men’s set (Nickent). I find that graphite shafts are more forgiving than steel. I have been playing almost everyday for 3 yrs and my game has changed so much that I am glad I waited to invest more money on clubs until I was able to understand what my needs were better.

What type of golf ball responds best on the green?

Question by Dan W: What type of golf ball responds best on the green?
Although hard to believe, I compete in Professional MIni Golf tournaments around the country and was wondering what type of ball would perform best on the green (min golf course lol). I seem to like balls with a lower compression (Maxfli Noodle, Volvik Crystal) yet after reading up on the design of golf balls, I am not sure that this is the right decision. What type of balls (compression, three piece two piece etc.) would help increase my performance.

Best answer:

Answer by arachdog
I’ve always assumed that golf balls usually just focus on distance with a case hardness where there is a trade off between control and durability. I have never heard any ball to be more accurate on the putting surface. I’m prepared to be proved wrong though.

Question by ghmag: When can you find the best deals in golf equipment?
