For anyone who likes watching golf or playing it, it can be instructive to read up about the sport as well.
There are few better ways to learn about something, or to brush up on your knowledge, than by reading interviews with the stars, coaching clinics from professionals past and present, and articles on everything from golf clubs (the equipment) to golf clubs (the places where you go to play).
And there is a healthy market in golf magazines which feeds that need for the keen golfer.
Go to any newsagent or most supermarket/convenience stores and you will find a wide range to choose from.
The range really does vary from the extremely studious magazines, which favor articles on the technical points of the game, to the new generation of golf magazines which put the players front and center and will ask them more about themselves.
Neither type of magazine is specifically better, because your choice will inevitably depend on your own taste. It is often beneficial to buy a few different magazines in order to get the most rounded impression of the game.
If there is a star player you want to emulate, then you can only be helped by knowing both about the courses they play and the way they prepare.
A subscription to a golf magazine may also make an excellent present for the amateur golfer in your life. They will be only too glad to receive a magazine which will enable them to hone their game and learn about the stars of the sport.
