Are you starting to play golf? There are a lot of things to remember and learn, aren't there? Some things are important, while others seem absolutely trivial in comparison. Can you tell the difference? Here is a list of 10 questions which beginners often ask about learning to play golf.

1. What is the best way to learn golf?

Get golf lessons for beginners. There is no question that most people learn golf best by having a live human instructor. You want an instructor with a good reputation. For a start, don't get personal one-on-one instruction. You want to attend a class with a few other students. This gives you a little bit of competition, which always helps to motivate your learning with taylormade rocketballz irons. In the long run, it is also easier for you to find people to play with after your lessons end.

2. What should I learn first - how to drive the golf ball, chipping or putting?

In general, that depends on your golf instructor. Many commercial golf schools and trainers emphasize golf swing instructions. Why? Because that is what most beginning golfers want to learn. Most golfers, especially beginners, want to emulate Tiger Woods spectacular 200+ yard drives with taylormade rocketballz irons.

3. What clubs do I need to play golf?

You need exactly 14 golf clubs in a real game. You need a driver (1-wood), 3-wood and 5-wood, a set of (7) irons from 3 to 9, pitching wedge, sand wedge, putter, and one more club of your choice. As a beginner, you'll find yourself in trouble a lot - picking a third wedge or a hybrid club can be very helpful.

4. What are the best clubs for me?

As a beginner, a cheap, complete set of secondhand golf clubs is best. Know that you will make mistakes - many, many mistakes. You WILL bang your taylormade rbz irons into the ground and bend it. You WILL lose control of your club and bend it. You WILL miss the ball and break your club.

5. What are the best golf swing training aids?

To be blunt, go sign up for golf lessons for beginners. Next, buy four or five boxes of golf balls to practice with. You can get secondhand balls in good condition from Amazon for as little as $0.50 a piece. Top players like Tiger Woods and Vijay Singh don't just rely on their natural talent to win. They hit hundreds of golf balls everyday with taylormade rbz irons. If you expect to improve your golf swing, go hit at least one bucket of balls every weekend.

6. What is the perfect golf swing?

There is no such thing. If you look at the pros, you'll find that everyone swings differently. That said, there are two main types of golf swing - the one plane swing and the two plane swing. The one plane swing was pioneered by Ben Hogan and Jim Hardy, and employs a more natural rotary swinging motion where you match your arms and shoulders throughout the swing. Today, you can see Vijay Singh and Tiger Woods employing this type of swing. Many other pros use the two plane swing, where they blend the flat rotation of their body with the upright swinging of their arms. For those of you old enough to remember him, this is how Jack Nicklaus plays.
