  • Choose your weapons — get expert tips and guidance on choosing the right clubs and accessories for your unique needs (and budget)
  • Get into the swing — follow easy-to-understand explanations to warm up your body, handle your clubs, and swing like a pro
  • Step onto the green — find out where to play, how to fit in, and what to expect at public courses, private courses, and driving ranges
  • Keep your head in the game — learn how to overcome the mental challenges of the game, beat bad breaks, and weather the elements
