Your golf swing can be influenced by the quality of the golfing equipment you have. If you want to make some serious improvements in your game, then its time you looked into these 4 pieces of equipment guaranteed to shave a few points of your score.

1. Weighted clubs: A weighted club offers one of the best ways to improve your swing as it gives you the correct feel for the backswing and downswing by adding resistance. The added weight of the club helps to train and make your muscles stronger.

When you switch back to a regular club, you will be able to feel the difference in the power you have during your swing. Around a dozen strokes at a time is adequate with the weighted club to help improve your swing or to act as a warm up.

Work through the motions of a swing slowly when using weighted clubs. Doing so will help to create a wider arc on the backswing, and help with getting the right tempo of the swing down.

The use of the club will help improve posture and provide better swing consistency for golfers. A molded grip helps remind the golfer of the correct position for the hands as they swing the club.

2. Golf clubs: No two golfers have the same body type so to improve your swing it may be time to invest in custom fitted clubs. Though fitted cubs cost more, most golfers will tell you the expense is worth it.

Clubs can be customized based on your swing speed, age and handicap; the custom fit gives a better grip, improves club head speed and is fitted to be the perfect height for the golfer. A custom club can also prevent a sliced ball that occurs because of a club being too flat.

3. Golf swing gloves: If you tend to have trouble with balls veering off to the side, the grip and wrist are typically the problem. Beginning golfers tend to flick their wrist at impact causing a shot to go wide instead of sending it straight down the line.

Golf swing gloves function as a wrist guide, keeping the grip stable and giving more power since the golfer does not force the grip tighter. By keeping the wrist in the right position, golfers keep pressure off their wrist.

4. Golf balls: Regardless of what you may have heard, the price of your ball does not matter. The only difference between cheap and expensive balls is how much they affect your bank account!

Golf is not a cheap game to play and there are a number of worthwhile expenses that can help you improve your swing but the cost of a dozen high tech balls is not a necessary investment for a beginner.

Wait a few months before going out and buying $30 golf balls. This allows you enough time to get a better feel for your swing, taking you to the point where your expensive golf balls don’t end up in the water.

For more experienced players a high-tech golf ball can be sound investment for reducing your handicap by a few points.
