How Much Does It Cost To Ship Golf Clubs With FedEx or UPS?

Cost to ship golf clubs FedEx UPSI live in Arizona and am going on vacation to Massachusetts for 2 weeks where I plan to play at least 4 or 5 rounds of golf.  It doesn't make sense to rent clubs that many times so I have decided to bring them with me.  I had heard that UPS and FedEx have options to ship golf clubs so I decided to look into them.  What I found was that both companies would charge around $100 each way to ship my clubs. That cost included them packing the clubs for me with their own box.

Although it's a nice service, I am not looking to spend $200 to have my golf clubs with me on vacation so I have decided to go with my other option of checking my clubs with the airline (JetBlue).  I borrowed a golf club travel bag from a friend and it will cost me $40 each way.

Although I have decided not to use FedEx or UPS to ship my golf clubs in this instance, I still think this is a great service that they provide and it may very well be the best option in other cases.

The Greatest Driver: The Shark

The Great White Shark Greg Norman LogoBy Adam Camara - You often hear the conversation of "who's the greatest golfer ever?" boil down to either Jack Nicklaus or Tiger Woods, and it's about a 50/50 split right now depending on who you ask. Of course Tiger can change that split in his direction by winning some more major championships and surpassing the 18 that Jack won. While Jack and Tiger are the 2 best all around golfers ever, neither is the best driver of the golf ball ever. The greatest driver of all time is "The Great White Shark", Greg Norman.

Although he is most well-known by many as the golfer who almost won so many major championships, but actually only won 2 British Open Championships, I remember the way Greg Norman drove the ball. The Shark had the most athletic golf swing I've ever seen that produced the most consistently long and accurate drives, during a time before technology changed the equipment to make driving the golf ball easier.

Check out the classic video below to see The Shark drive the ball and witness why people like golf analyst Johnny Miller and PGA Player Nick Price call Norman the greatest driver:

Golf Tip: Flat Left Wrist to Hit it Straight

Flat Left Wrist Golf Swing
By Adam Camara - A key element to keeping the club face square at impact is maintaining a flat left wrist (for right-handed golfers). In this case, "flat" means in line with the forearm. We often hear about the importance of keeping the left arm straight in the golf swing but what often gets overlooked is the wrist. If the left wrist is cupped it can lead to a slice and if it's bowed it can lead to a hook. If the left wrist is either cupped or bowed in the backswing then the hands will have to compensate at impact in order for the ball to go straight, which can be very difficult for the average golfer. Simplify your golf swing by keeping that left wrist nice and flat and hit it straight! Watch the short video by Hank Haney below for a demonstration:
