Golf is a fascinating concept. Spread over lush green fields and shallow lakes, they are a sheer delight for those watching the game as well as those playing it.(If you do not have a cart, it's a nice way of losing weight as well). Novices make the mistake of imagining that golf is a pretty easy game. All you have got to do is connect the club to the ball and look for a strong impact. Unfortunately, they are mistaken. Too many things come into the picture.

For a player, the three defects of poor swing with callaway diablo edge irons, poor grip and slices mar his golfing adventure. Poor swings take away from the power of the shot and crush the impact. Further, it also takes away from the direction of the shot. Slices that are introduced do not let any kind of momentum get into the shot. Bad grip is another killer. Many players cannot use wrist effectively and reduced wrist action takes away from the control of the shot.

For the grip, it is advised to use the fingers as much as possible. Palm based grip is undesirable. For effective swing, it is advised to be in complete control of body balance and relax your body before the shot. It is also advisable to pause at the top of the backswing. This automatically strengthens the downswing with diablo edge irons. To cut down on slices, the head should be in the line of the spine and the chin should look up through the nose while hitting the shot.

This led to a lot of surface designs. In present times, the golf ball is comprised of a rubber core that is woven through a rubber thread and has a dimpled enamel to give it the perfect mark. This creates such aerodynamics that the ball automatically travels far. A marked ball has a larger separation drag created due to sudden change of pressure flow. This is why they get the momentum to travel far.

Another important part is the golf driver. It is the longest and the most expensive club that a golfer has. It is either made of titanium or steel. Again it has graphite or a steel shaft. It has the lowest loft among all the golf clubs and hence gives longer distance and smarter trajectory. Golf driver's club head size is standard, mid or oversized. Today, used golf drivers are available over many online retail stores at very reasonable prices.
