3 Golfing Hacks to Make Your Life Easier
If you’re new to golf, figuring out how to comfortably fit in with other veteran golfers can seem like an insurmountable task. Golfing – with the clubs, clothing, and membership fees – as well as the highly technical nature of the game itself – can seem like a very difficult thing to master.
On the other hand, if you’ve already spent tons of time on the links, you’re always looking for new ways to make your golfing experience more enjoyable. These days, golfers are beginning to turn to various golf hacks to make their lives easier.
But before we dig deeper into how you can save time, energy, and money on your golf game, we need to properly define what a “hack” is. For those unfamiliar with the process of hacking, no, we’re not referring to the methods used by shady characters who want to penetrate your encrypted computer data to steal your personal information, we’re referring to the process of finding simple, clever solutions to the problems that plague your daily life.
In this article, we’ll talk about some outside-the-box golf hacks that you can use to make your time on the links more enjoyable.
Bag Up Your Push Cart
If you’re one of those golfers who uses a push cart, you’re probably familiar with all of the dirt, grass, sand, and random debris that settles in the trunk of your car (or wherever you put your push cart for storage) after a round of golf. To keep the trunk of your car dirt-free while transporting your cart from course to course, we suggest purchasing a bag constructed from a thick, durable material that is big enough to house your push cart.
The bag we use is made out of a waterproof tarp material that is lightweight and extremely durable. Most importantly, the bag must be big enough for your pushcart, and it will keep the trunk of your vehicle free of random golf course debris.
Carry a Personal Bag
While we’re on the topic of bags, another hack we’d like you to consider is purchasing a small bag in which you can carry your personal effects. There’s nothing worse than having your wallet, keys, and mobile phone mess up your swing. To combat this problem, carry a small bag with clips that can attach to your golf bag.
This bag should be large enough to carry all of our personal effects, keeping these important items safe while playing a round on your favorite course.
Purchase a Golf Umbrella
A golf-specific umbrella is an excellent life hack that’ll keep you cool, dry, or properly shaded if you happen to get stuck in hot or inclement weather. If you golf in warm climates, a golf umbrella is a great way to keep the scorching sun off your neck during an afternoon round.
If you want to take your golf game to the next level, these hacks will keep you organized, safe, and happy the next time you’re on the links.
