Frequently Asked Questions (about equipment, lessons, and more...)
Q: Are boxed sets okay?
A: Absolutely! They are a great value and usually are pretty good quality. They will be great to help you learn beginning skills and learn what your likes and dislikes are for when you are ready to invest in higher-end equipment.
Q: Should I get fit for clubs?
A: When you are just starting you probably won't have a consistent swing. Club fitting is best when done "dynamically" (while hitting balls) instead of "static" (which is just measuring your body). The only static fitting that may be helpful in the very beginning is grip size. Check with your local PGA Professional to help get the right grips on your clubs. Its an inexpensive fix that can help a lot and make you more comfortable swinging.
Q: What do I do?...my boobs get in the way!
A: Make sure you are bent forward from your hips enough at address in order to swing back more comfortably too. Then, there are two ways to handle this... (1)"hug 'em and turn 'em" (arms on both sides, squeeze, turn back all together) OR (2) use the "over-under" approach (lead arm over the lead boob, back arm below the back boob- from this position you should be able to swing your arms back over your chest).
