Golf: On a fine line between heaven and hell

Anyone who has ever stood at a tee, followed the ball onto the fairway and finally reached for the putter on the green knows:

Golf is more than just a game and a pastime.

This website gives answers to many questions

Welcome to Kais Golf Guide. I am glad that you have found your way to me. Because you are definitely in the right place, no matter if you are already a golfer or if you are thinking about giving this sport a try. Perhaps you have not yet had any contact with the game of ball and club. Then just let me inspire you. It is worth it.

On this site you will find articles about the beginning of my personal golf career, descriptions of the different types of clubs, tips for the right stance, the perfect grip, the swing and much more. There is a glossary with explanations of terms, so that the golf language does not remain a book with seven seals and very personal thoughts on spontaneously found topics around golf. A few golfer anecdotes are also included.

In addition, the diverse equipment that can pave the way to becoming a good golfer will be highlighted. From the right set of irons to a good putter, from the ball to the glove to the clothing. An overview for beginners as well as advanced players. And ultimately also proof that golf is not as expensive as many still believe. The hunt for the ball is on its way to becoming a real popular sport.

As you can see, there's a lot to discover here. Take a look at the blog, browse through the topics, share my private golf experiences and browse through the store. You'll always find something you can use or maybe even urgently need. But no matter which area captivates you, I wish you a lot of fun in any case. And here we go.

Feelings in romantic change

Golf is the constant balance on the thin line between heaven and hell. The path across the course is peppered with emotions of all kinds, and only rarely in life is the romantic alternation between "sky-high cheering" and "saddened to death" closer together.

Reaching for the bag, choosing the right club, addressing the ball, struggling to concentrate, making the perfect swing - all these moments are parts of a constant battle with oneself and against the scorecard.

They reflect the eternal hope for that one right shot, that perfect moment of impact, followed by the hitherto unattained range of the shot and the subsequent irrepressible feeling of happiness: "What's the world coming to?"

Royal moments are rare

However, anyone who regularly travels to the golf course knows only too well: these royal moments are very rare. Many shots are just the opposite of perfect, many rounds leave the scorecard with a smorgasbord of high, even too high, numbers, shot after shot, until the ball finally finds its way into the hole.

Six strokes on a par 3 hole? Unspeakable. Often the flight partner has to stroke the sore soul with nice words. But every now and then the tables are turned and you yourself are the comforter (and are secretly happy that at least this time you were better than the other on this hole).

Kai - the author

You don't have to be an Adonis to play golf. Even for me, a self-confessed couch potato, picking up a club helps me to forget everyday life and have fun, even though I know that my swing is certainly not textbook. More about me and of course my partner for the technique can be found here.

"I can do it" is not a golf joke

Golf is a game against the little devil on one's shoulder, because it is not uncommon that just when the thought of offering the good equipment for sale to the next best thing comes up, the one great shot that makes you forget the past ten failed swings follows: "I can do it after all," shoots through your head, this time not as a golfer's joke, but meant quite seriously and almost defiantly.

Suddenly there's a sense of victory again: "Who said sell equipment? Out of the question." Now more than ever, is the motto. Unfortunately, the elation often only lasts until the next stroke. Because the little devil only wants to reassure the player, lull him into a sense of security, the success is deceptive, perhaps more luck than skill. The next shot promptly goes into the rough again, with the threat of a ball loss. Oh, it's a constant cycle between elation and gloomy thoughts.

Enjoying the feeling of freedom

And yet: that one shot out of ten, maybe even just twenty, that one makes all the difference. It outweighs all the bad feelings by far and makes many golfers in Germany stand at the tee again and again, enjoying the feeling of freedom that comes as soon as the ball is teed up.

The everyday life becomes then completely small, is no longer even secondary matter. The only thing that counts is the ball. Despite all the hassle about missed shots, the bottom line is that golf is one thing above all: pure relaxation in the great outdoors.

So it's a case of continuing to practice, perhaps booking another coaching lesson or thinking about new clubs. Because it may well be due to the swimming trunks if the farmer can't swim. The latest technology has also found its way into golf, and a new driver can possibly permanently give you that extra ten meters of driving distance you've been struggling for so long.

New materials can help, and "forgiveness" is just one of many keywords. Not only does it help one's own technique, sometimes a new trolley is simply balm for the soul, it folds up more easily, fits better in the car, and already provides the good feeling that underlies a successful game when preparing for the upcoming round.

One final request: This site is still relatively new and is constantly growing. We always try to keep it as informative as possible and publish two new articles per week, always on Mondays and Thursdays. But sometimes we can't keep up, so it may be that some sections are still a bit incomplete. Please forgive us for that. What is still missing will be added bit by bit. This way it will always be exciting and up-to-date for both sides - for you as a reader and for us as operators of the site "Kais Golf Guide".

Finally, I hope you enjoy browsing through the site, take your time to look around and discover the fascination of golf.

Have a nice game at all times.
