Ladies Golf Apparel and Fashion

By Rhys Jones

I was perusing one of those 'Golfing for Women' magazines the other week and started wondering where the women live, who wear the golf attire modeled in women's golf magazines? I've never seen women, not even the professionals, who would dress in such expensive and outrageous clothing.

It's easy to spend lots of money kitting yourself out for golf. What with hats, sunglasses, gloves, shirts, shorts, socks, windbreakers and shoes, the costs add up very quickly, even if you do your shopping at the sales. Then factor in the cost of clubs, balls, bag, cart and fees and you have to play very often to keep the "CPU" (cost per use) down to a reasonable level.

One half-page advert showed a beautiful young 'golfing lady' in really tiny shorts (like that's allowed on golf courses!) that cost nearly $300, a golf shirt at almost $600, a jacket by Ralph Lauren at almost $200 and two-toned Utuser shoes costing $400 plus.

That comes to almost $1,500! I know that I could never hope to get the CPU on that outfit down to anywhere near an acceptable limit in my golfing lifetime! Don't get me wrong - I love clothes and I really love shoes, but could never afford, nor even want, golf shoes or pants that cost as much as a lot of people's weekly wages.

OK, you need comfortable golf shoes that don't look like something your grandmother would have worn, but you can easily find less expensive and still fashionable shoes.

I have a couple of really trendy golfing outfits, although none of them are famous brand names. If I totalled up the cost of all of those articles of clothing, it would not come to the cost of a Tse golf shirt. Personally, I would rather have several trendy outfits than one that is priced over-the-top.

If I were to wear a $1,500 outfit to play golf, I would simply be too worried about getting it dirty or perspiring in it to play a decent round. - 32375

About Nike Golf Shoes

By Rhys Jones

Nike golf shoes are one of the tools you can use to improve your game. If you have only played golf in casual footwear before, or if you're looking for a way to improve your general game, investing in a good pair of golf shoes can make a large difference. Like in other sports, the shoes you wear can directly impact on your performance.

As you have to have a smooth swing and be able to follow through on your swing in golf, all without losing control of the strength of your swing, your golf shoes can help or hinder you. Nike golf shoes are designed to help you balance, gripping the turf as much as necessary yet letting you put full strength and control behind each swing.

Since these golf shoes have special compartments in the heels, every step is easier and lighter to make. They offer the level of support your feet, legs and knees require in order to play golf very comfortably for longer periods of time.

As golf very often involves a lot of walking, Nike golf shoes have been constructed like a blend of walking shoe and golf shoe. They cushion the joints of your legs and knees against the impact from each step you take, allowing you to concentrate your strength and effort on your game of golf, rather than on how you are going to get to the next hole or to wherever it is that your ball has landed.

When you decide to buy Nike golf shoes, there are several things that you should bear in mind. The first thing you need to consider is your level of skill. Golf, like many other sports, has equipment that can be used by beginners or advanced professionals alike, but it is better to differentiate.

In many cases, novices pick the Nike golf shoes suited for professionals, but rarely end up getting the full potential of the shoe, as they do not know how to get the most out of the shoes.

While professionals definitely can get great use out of these Nike golf shoes, it is often better for novices to purchase entry level Nike golf shoes which would better suit their needs. The increase in power afforded to your stroke would often be wasted on those who are beginners, as they do not yet have the requisite skill to control the stroke as they need to.

Therefore, it is better to buy Nike golf shoes that suit your skill level, as these shoes will have the comfort and functionality you require. You can purchase Nike golf shoes from a variety of sources. For those who want cheaper shoes and the same quality of professional shoes, you can purchase last season's models from Nike outlet centers.

If you want only top of the line shoes, you can buy from online Nike stockists or through a variety of online and local retail vendors (see below). - 32375

Hearty Advice For Hikers and Hunters

By Ethan O. Tanner

As brightly colored leaves dazzle the fall landscape, hikers and hunters nationwide will migrate to mountains, woods and fields, but many, unfortunately, are ill prepared for the beating their feet will take. Hunters and hikers will often navigate the toughest terrain. Hikers, hunters and others who love the outdoors often don't realize how strenuous it can be to withstand constant, vigorous walking on uneven terrain.

Walking up and down sloping hillsides and wandering through muddy, slick fields and wooded regions places tension on the muscles and tendons in the feet and ankles, in particular if you haven't conditioned decently before reaching the trail. The best equipment for walking up and down in the woods is a high caliber pair of well fabricated hiking boots. This investment in quality boots will prevent sprained ankles or strained Achilles tendons.

It is good common sense for hikers and hunters to make the investment in top-quality hiking boots. Strong, well insulated and moisture-proof boots with steel or graphite shanks offer excellent ankle and foot support that helps lessen stress and muscle fatigue to reduce injury risk.

In wet and crisp, cold weather, donning suitable socks can help avoid blisters, fungal infections and frostbite. A fine synthetic sock for the initial layer retains dry feet and lessens rubbing that forms blisters. For the second layer, wool socks supply warmth, catch moisture away from the skin, and help make the hiking boot cozier. Wool permits moisture to evaporate more quickly than cotton, so fewer blisters grow.

What happens if your feet or ankles hurt during a hike or hunt? Pain usually occurs from overuse, being out of shape, or even from just walking. If you're not accustomed to walking on sloped or uneven ground, your legs and feet will get tired and cause muscles and tendons to ache. To avoid a serious injury, such as a severe ankle sprain or an Achilles tendon rupture, rest for awhile if you start hurting.

Moderation is also a good method to follow when first starting out in the woods. Compare hiking to skiing in that beginners should take on less difficult trails until they become better conditioned and more confident. Using common sense in starting easy will make your hunt more comfortable and enjoyable. - 32375

Trails For Hiking, Getting Ready For Them!

By Leona Williams

It's important that you take some precautions when you start along a trail. Make sure the trail looks safe and well-traveled. Think about whether you'll be needing to be out overnight and bring whatever provisions you think you'll need for the length of time you'll be hiking.

When you hike, choose a partner. You should make proper research about the weather, overall protection, usability of the trail etc.The length of the hike, expected obstacles and the safety precautions have to be decided.

A small, fully stocked first aid kit is crucial. This ensures you are prepared for the possibility of an accident. You should also do some research before your hike. Look into maps, goals and walking speeds. You also need to consider whether you will need food and shelter. Most public trails will supply you with maps of the area.

The average guide for speed is two miles per hour on flat land with adding an extra half hour per thousand feet of higher altitude. The variables to include in this process are weather, the condition of the trail, and the personal, established speed.

During peak season, one cannot take a popular trail without reservation. For example The Grand Canyon.Their policy states that all hikers aspiring to camp overnight should apply for back-country permit once they reach the bottom of the canyon.

Do a search and you'll discover if you need reservations and how they should be made. You'll also find out if a tent is required or if you can just bring a sleeping bag or bedroll.

About hiking, many opinions are there. Should it be done alone or with a partner? If you have a partner, it will be of great help during accident or emergency. However, for experience hikers, doing it alone is recommended leaving the details with some trustworthy friend.

While research and plans are the basis for an enjoyable and safe hiking experience, still hikers have to anticipate that the best-made plans may be changed. Hikers, both experienced and new, with a good plan and the flexibility needed to accommodate weather and other unforeseen events will have a great experience. - 32375
