How the mighty fall is what many golf fans around the world might be thinking, but not really true when you think about it. A more select group of golfers, some of the pros too, will be thinking just how hard it can be to get to the top and how many challenges lie before many men and women to get to a golf course, never mind work on getting their handicap improved.
The sentiment is shared across the globe when taking into account many of the other sports. It takes a lot of guts for youngsters from impoverished communities to rise up out of the ashes and make something of themselves, playing a sport they love. Over the years not everyone, never mind the poorest of the poor, have been able to get anywhere close to a golf course. This is because, over the years, golf was one of the most expensive sports to play.
But not anymore. Today, you don’t need to be an exclusive VIP member of an exclusive country club to go and play your rounds. Today, you do not even need to be a member of any club just to show up for a round. You do not even need to go to so-called pro golf shops where everything costs an absolute fortune. All you need to do is go online and click a page or two, and there you go, right before your eyes; discount golf shoes, shirts, shorts (not slacks anymore), gloves, balls and clubs.
It’s a good idea to be a member to help improve your game. It’s also nice to know that you can improve your game with the right gear which you can now afford.
