Golf was once viewed as a strange game which was played by some well to do men (Mostly) and some women of a certain age and social class. I had the privilege of accompanying my uncle to his sports club and watched as they went round hitting and following some round balls across a big field.
By the way, to be honest, I went to the sports club to enjoy the free swimming pool that was free for members and their families! I assured myself that I was keeping fit as my uncle was doing his share by walking for hours across the golf course. But one thing that I always noticed was how well dressed all the players were with their t- shirts, half sweaters, well-ironed trousers, golf sunglasses or shorts and caps.
Popularity of Golf
This day’s golf has undergone a revolution and people of different social classes and ages are playing and they play all over the world. Children as young as 6 years are accompanying their parents to golf courses and even going for international competitions. This may have caused a revolution in the golf industry, as young people like to dress trendy and comfortable as much as they want to win a round of golf.
Nowadays, a trip to the golf course and one would think you have landed in a fashion show. It is not a new phenomenon that for most sports golf included, competitors are not only dressing to win but also to impress not forgetting the fact that cameras are on standby and almost the whole world is watching.
In my opinion the question of whether one should worry more about golf ball style or sunglasses quality depends on the player. When it comes to golf, it is important that golfers choose golf balls for beginners that look and feel comfortable to them. The golf ball style that one chooses could depend on the players swing, the company that makes it, recommendations from other golfers and also the price per pack of the golf balls.
Most non-golf players like me would not have a clue and all golf balls look and feel the same. In my opinion first time golf players should concentrate more on finding the right golf ball than on finding the sunglasses that impress the crowd. The sunglasses companies will constantly advertise that when one looks well then one will play well. This is true to some extent, as when one has confidence and high self esteem they tend to be more competitive and play well.
However, accessorising only to impress in sports and not taking into consideration other important details can have disastrous effects. In golf for example, one can buy costly designer sunglasses just because other golfers have them and when out in the golf course realise that they are not suitable for him. This causes disruptions and may cost a player his game. It is important for an individual to know and understand what is most important and what improves his or her game.
