"A place for everything and everything in its place…" How many times have you heard that advice, and wished you had a better storage setup for your all-important golf clubs, travel bag, and other golfing gear? Well, your search doesn't have to go on forever. Now there are lots of reputable golf equipment companies, including Callaway, Golfsmith, and others, who are producing sturdy, functional, efficient, and even stylish golf bag organizers for the golfing individual or the golfing family. Most of the latest products are designed to sit on the floor and hold one or two golf bags, along with multiple shelves in various configurations for shoes, tees, towels, and whatever other gear you might want to keep handy.
The Timeless Quality of Wood
If you want to keep the most accuracy with your golf shots, it's important that you keep your hands low on the follow-through. While it is important that you do follow through on all your golf shots, following through too much will throw your shot off and cause the ball to drift.
Several of these models feature the rich look of oak or maple finishes, adding a touch of distinction wherever they're displayed. Golfsmith offers the J. G. Hickory golf bag stand and organizer in both one-bag and two-bag models, and the unit comes in both walnut finish and brushed nickel. Both are very functional and sturdy. The brushed nickel model adds the handy feature of a ventilated, locking cabinet, for that extra measure of security for your personal belongings stored inside. The double bag units are 38" by 36" by 19," and the single-bag unit is a bit narrower.
It's a good idea to wear a hat when you play golf to keep the sun out of your eyes. It is permissible to wear a baseball style cap, but it cannot have any kind of risque saying or message imprinted upon it. For tournaments or a formal game with an important person, you may wear a straw hat.
There are also a variety of metal-construction golf bag organizers and storage systems on the market. These range from the J. G. Hickory brushed nickel model, described above, to the very functional, economically priced tubular steel construction of the Improvements golf bag organizer, which holds two golf bags and has five shelves for storage of shoes and other gear. The Golf Organizer by Suncast features side-by-side storage for two bags, and lots of shelf space for shoes and other stuff.
On the Wall
Remember that your grip on your golf club has a simple, direct impact on the way your ball flies. A grip that is too tight sends your ball off-course to the right. If your grip is too loose, expect to see your ball heading left. Fine-tune your grip pressure to get exactly the results you desire.
