Is Golfing Right For You?

Yet, this thought inevitably leads to more questions, such as: what kind of equipment do I need? How expensive is golfing? Is golfing right for me?

Since we think that the last question is the most important one, and that you shouldn't spend a dime on golfing before you've carefully considered whether this activity is right for we'll help you answer this question right here, right now.

2 Questions To Ask

So is golfing right for you or not?

Well, we recommend you ask 2 slightly related questions in order to arrive at an answer. Really, it is onl 2 questions and they will save you from a lot of potential regrets in the long run.

First, ask yourself whether you like coordination, for this is the primary skill to develop as a golfer. Golfing requies you to learn a new kind of posture and movement and be able to internalize it down to a tee. Otherwise you'll never make it even close to the hole. Even worst, you might never make any meaningful progress and that will frustrate you in the long run.

So ask yourself: would I enjoy practicing a single movement over and over and over again ( in order to be rewarded by making your golf ball cover hundreds of meters of distance and eventually finding it's way into a tiny hole on a huge golf course)?.

If that answer is yes, do move on to the second question. But answer first now!

2. Do you mind waiting?

Golf is not a fast-paced sport. Instead, golf means playing the long and the mental game. Successful golfing requires partience, and respect for your fellow golfers, since there might be plenty people ahead of you on the golf course.

So if you're a person who resents waiting or taking a leisurely scroll along the green, golf might not be for you. Even worse, you might even get annoyed by it in time and would have wasted your money on precious equipment.

If instead, you enjoy being out in nature and practicing patience, golf could be right up your alley.

All About the Lexus Hoverboard


The Lexus hoverboard It’s actually the closest thing to the one shown in the movies. The car manufacturer clearly spared no expenses in putting this dream into reality. For the first time, someone built a hoverboard that actually hovers. Unfortunately, you could only use the Lexus board on a specially built track. This is because the board runs using superconductors. The hoverboard rises from the ground using the same principles as the bullet or Maglev train. Here is all that we know about the Lexus Hoverboard. Superconductor and Liquid Nitrogen Lexus called it the SLIDE Hoverboard. Its engineering team use superconductors to raise the board an inch or two from the ground. The SLIDE’s superconductor reacts to the magnetic field by repelling it. This reaction is the reason why the board “lifts” of the ground. You will also need to cool down the superconductors by using liquid nitrogen. Once the liquid nitrogen is used up, the SLIDE loses its ability to hover. This limits the hovering time which only lasts from 20 to 30 minutes. Testers claimed that the SLIDE board can carry a rider weight up to 440 lbs. Don’t expect this kind of board to come out in the market anytime soon. The SLIDE Hoverboard Track The Lexus track was built specifically for the hoverboard. The hidden magnetic track was designed to pull the SLIDE board along the path. The track also has a combination of uphill and downhill slopes. The designers calculated that each possible route will have enough magnetic pull for the SLIDE to glide through. The SLIDE track used for the video demo was built in Barcelona, Spain. Physical Composition of Lexus Hoverboard The makers used bamboo and carbon fiber to construct the board’s body. The superconductor for the Lexus hoverboard is a combination of oxygen, yttrium, copper, and barium. The SLIDE is almost 30 inches in length and weighs more than 25 lbs. Limitation The SLIDE finally made the levitating skateboard a reality albeit a limited one. The traditionally wheeled hoverboards can take riders almost everywhere while the SLIDE rider is confined to the magnetic track. If this limitation is overcome, the SLIDE will attain the distinct title as the only true hoverboard. Nevertheless, it has given users a taste of how it feels to step on an authentic levitating board. Commercial Viability Lexus succeeded in making a truly levitating board. The SLIDE board took more than a year to construct. But its video teaser generated a lot of interest in the span of a very short time. Many are asking as to when Lexus will release this technological marvel to the market. The Lexus hoverboard finally made a levitating skateboard into a reality. It’s not perfect and riders can only use it on a specially constructed magnetic track. Still, many are eager to buy the SLIDE once it is up for sale in the market despite its limitation. Unfortunately, Lexus claimed that SLIDE was built as a concept product. It will take some time before customers can get their hands on these levitating skateboards.
