From a very early age I have been fascinated with the game of cricket, I was introduced to the game by my dad he used to play for a couple of local teams. One of these teams was our local amateur side and the other was an indoor cricket team he played with his workmates, by attending both these games to watch my dad it greatly developed my understanding of the game. As soon as I was able to play for I local team myself I jumped at the opportunity, and as I’ve got older I have developed further my understanding of the rules of the game as well as the gamesmanship part of cricket which is such an important factor.

I am now in a position where I am still a great fan of cricket and very fortunate that I get the opportunity to go and watch many live cricket games that Edgbaston cricket ground which is only half an hours drive from where I live. But when I am not able to go and physically watch live cricket thanks to the development of new technology both in mobile phones and on the Internet I’m now able to keep in touch with cricket news no matter where I am. It is worth saying that in all the years I have been on the Internet there is been one website that has remained as my main source for cricket news and information, this is the cricinfo website which is now owned by ESPN.

Cricinfo began its life as a fan owned website and began its life back in the 1990s when the Internet was just beginning to recognise its potential in the wider world, initially cricinfo gained all of its information via the contribution of other cricket fans who would submit scores and statistics for inclusion on the websites database. This is a far cry from what has been achieved in the websites current incarnation as being the number one source for cricket news, scores and even live cricket highlights on the Internet.

Who doesn’t know Tiger Woods? He is one of the most popular names when it comes to golf. Aside from natural skills that he possesses and the years of training to perfect his sway and hit the ball, another thing that he perfected through time is using golf equipments, which is very important in the sense that you have to know how to deal with the things that you are using. You might have an idea of how to use it, but do you have the skill to use it properly? The skill might have something to do with the genes or with constant training, which is somehow hard to control. But what you can do is to properly choose the equipment that you are using and be familiar with it.

Golf club and golf balls are the two things that you need to have in order to play one. Of course you need to have a place to practice on.

Choosing the right golf club is very important especially if you are a beginner. People that are starting to play golf must understand that in this point of time you don’t need to have all the equipment or kinds of golf clubs that a pro would use. There are various clubs that are being sold on the market. You have to  know which can be useful to you and which one should be reserved when you are about to be a pro in the game. Before you could play one you need to have a set of golf clubs to use. A standard set would consist of 3 woods, 10 irons and a putter in various configurations. The question that you have to ask yourself is whether all of these things are useful for you or you are just wasting money. When purchasing a golf club, it is advisable that you read golf club reviews. Not only will it give you certain tips in buying one, but also golf club reviews could give you an idea on which one to use and which type to buy. They are not strict rules, but they could be very useful especially when you are just starting to explore the world of golf.
