What Is a Handicap in Golf? How Is It Calculated? Answers You Need

In golf, a handicap is simply the difference between the total golf course par and the average number of strokes a golfer plays in about 10 games. Par is the number of strokes a golfer should take to finish the course (or hole).
In other words, it refers to a numerical figure that reflects a player's skill level. It shows your position (as a golfer) on the skill scale compared to other players. The lower the number, the more skilled a player is; the higher the number, the less skilled!

How to Regrip Golf Clubs - A Step-By-Step Guide

You may need to regrip your clubs every 3 to 6 months if you play frequently or between 6 and 12 months if you only play during weekends.
Start by using a box cutter to remove the old grip; then remove the old tape and place a new one (remember to remove the wax backing). After that, coat the inside of the grip with some solvent to help with the process of applying the new grip; you may need to tap the bottom of the club on the floor to make sure no space is left between the butt of the club and the grip.

Do more dimples on a golf ball make it better

Do More Dimples on a Golf Ball Make It Better?

Generally speaking, dimple count ranges between 350 and 500. These improve aerodynamics and reduce resistance to the air mid-flight, but the number doesn't significantly affect distance.
With that said, while a golf ball needs symmetrical dimples for a better flight, having more dimples does not make it better and doesn't always translate into better performance; One golf ball with the highest number of dimples - over 1700 - was invented, but it was discontinued, which gives the idea that more dimples is not always better!

Golf Club Types, Components, and Uses: A Complete Guide

Here are the 5 main types of golf clubs and their uses:

  • Woods (Including the driver): Fairway woods can be used off the tee if the player struggles with the driver or anywhere you can take full swings without the risk of hitting anything. Drivers are the longest clubs, with the biggest clubheads used off the tee for maximum distance.
  • Irons: Irons (2 through 9) are used primarily to hit the ball from the fairway to the green.
  • Hybrids: Hybrids are a crossbreed between irons and woods, as they provide more forgiveness and swingability.
  • Wedges: Wedges (sand, lob, gap) have the highest lofts among golf clubs and are used to get out of difficult situations like a sand trap.
  • Putters: Putters (mallets & blades) are the last clubs to use on the green to make a relatively short shot into the cup.

What Is an Eagle in Golf and How to Score One

In golf, an eagle is a score of 2 strokes under par; that is, scoring a par-4 hole in two strokes or a par-5 in three. To score an eagle, you need to use mother nature to your advantage by considering all the shifting winds, trees, elevations, and temperature fluctuations to achieve your goal; you can also play a shorter golf course and use its design to your advantage (like oscillations in putting greens and fast fairways that allow the ball to roll out for some extra distance). Finally, try to perfect your short game, especially putting, to reduce the number of strokes you need for each hole, which can help with eagles!

How to Increase Golf Swing Speed: Tips & Exercises

To increase your golf swing speed, you may get a speed-optimized club, use a lighter shaft made of carbon or graphite and a longer club. You can also work on your muscle strength and grip pressure as well as your flexibility. There are ways to practice through some added weight to increase the clubhead speed, something usually referred to as Overspeed Training techniques. Once the extra weight is removed, you'll feel it's much easier to swing the club faster; however, pay attention not to use much weight to the point of losing precision and control over the entire shot!

How to Clean Your Golf Clubs Like New

You should clean your clubs after every few rounds to ensure they perform optimally. To do that, you will need a club brush or a tee to clean the clubhead and face and reach in between the grooves (these are available on Amazon). Start by soaking the club head in lukewarm water mixed with dish soap. Avoid submerging the shaft and grip to avoid spoiling the glue. Use a (microfiber) towel to remove the dirt buildup before using the brush to clean the clubface and grooves. Dry the club(s) out using a separate towel, and ensure they are completely dry before putting them back in the bag.

How to Fix a Slice: 10 Ways to Stop Slicing in Golf

To fix a slice, you can start by having a proper stance (narrower is better), have a club fitting session to pick the best club(s) to use, ensure the ball is properly placed on the tee, monitor your grip and ensure it's not too weak, have a square club face at impact by checking your left wrist (for righties) movement throughout the backswing, downswing and contact. You could also avoid aiming left (for righties) while swinging or use some training aids like a swing align rod or the Eyeline Golf Speed Trap.
