Best value golf club sets

Golf is famous for high costs that are associated with playing it. It doesn’t has to be that expensive though, especially when you’re a beginner and just getting started. Thankfully, golf club manufacturers have identified the need for high-value and reasonable-cost golf clubs and did their best to make them. There are quite a lot of fantastic bargains on the market right now, but for today, i want to focus on those that cost less than five hundred dollars. These sets are mostly intended for beginner and intermediate golfers, but if you are a senior on tight budget, i have some advice to give you as well, so keep reading. 

First of all, when i talk about golf clubs that offer great value, i am always talking about golf club sets. Why is that? Well, because golf club sets are the best deal one can get on brand new golf clubs right now. Manufacturers usually benefit from selling driver, woods, irons and  all the other clubs at once, so they usually offer great discount to encourage people to buy them. That’s why you can usually get great clubs for comparatively tame prices, when you buy them as a set rather than picking them up one by one. One big disadvantage of buying golf club sets as a whole is that they offer less freedom of customizing your club set to fit the needs you have. When you choose clubs yourself, you decide what’s going to be in the bag and what’s not. That leaves more of your own personal style and footprint on your golf clubs than buying all of them together. 

In particular, i like Callaway Strata golf club set. The brand offers few different variations of the set, all of which are great and safe choice if you’re looking for awesome golf clubs for casual golfing. Callaway Strata Ultimate, their most expensive option, costs a bit less than four hundred dollars, but golf clubs packed in that set are absolutely worth every penny and much more. I’m not sure about other sets, as i haven’t played with them, but i think Wilson and Majek club sets are pretty good too. This latter brand sells all-hybrid set of clubs, which is great for seniors because of multitude of reasons.  Bazooka also makes great golf club sets, you can read review here.

Now, let’s get to promised tips for getting the most value out of your money as an expert golfer. Obviously, there aren’t many great set of clubs that will be both cheap and suitable for professional golfers, so we have to seek alternative solutions. One of the best alternative solutions that i could think of when i was in the same position was buying used golf clubs. Of course they are not as good as brand new ones, but when you are limited in budget, you have to sacrifice some things to get the kind of clubs that you want and need. On top of that, golfers who aren’t professionals usually don’t need more than six or eight golf clubs, so with a budget of five hundred dollars, i think you’ll be well-equipped with used golf clubs.

How to choose golf clubs for petite ladies

Because of growing number of women who are starting to play golf, golf club manufacturers are paying more and more attention to women’s needs when it comes to making golf gear. There is still one segment of women that has been neglected though, and that, in my opinion, is the segment of petite ladies. My sister is 5 feet, which isn’t that short to begin with, but when i tried to help her find good golf clubs for her, my efforts didn’t amount to anything. Serious, high end golf clubs are usually made in small quantities, so i kind of understand that it might not make sense for manufacturers to make just a couple of clubs for petite ladies. There is good news for ladies who are only into golf for casual fun though. There are a lot of affordable club sets made for petite ladies. Clubs that go into these sets are not very high end, but i don’t think that matters when you are a beginner golfer and just want to learn. Even if you are intermediate and have been playing golf club for long, flaws of these clubs aren’t that noticeable unless you are trying to get the best scores and compete on tournaments or something like that. 

Choosing the best out of options that are available to you as a petite lady is not that hard. Basically, you have to apply the same rules that you would apply if you were choosing regular golf clubs. Because we’re talking about short ladies, it is important to pay attention to the weight of the golf clubs. I’m assuming that heavy golf clubs will be very hard to carry for petite ladies, so those kinds of clubs should be avoided at all cost. You won’t have to find out weight of all club sets one by one if you just choose one of the club sets from this list. I can give you personal guarantee that each of the golf clubs on that list is very convenient and fit to be used. 

If you are a beginner golfer, then forgiveness and ease of use are two more features that a good petite woman’s golf clubs must have. Manufacturers do make high end clubs for petite women here and there, but in general, they don’t bother to do so. Petite women have to rely on golf club sets. Some of the ones from the list that i’ve linked to above are fine, so if you stick with them, you won’t have to worry about forgiveness. 

One of the best high end sets for petite women, and definitely my favorite one, is Callaway Solaire Set. Depending on time of the year, it costs around a thousand dollars. One of my friends uses it and i’ve used them myself, so based on my experience, i can attest that it feels great in your hands and delivers great results too. So if you’re confused about which club set to get, Callaway Solaire might be a solid choice for you. 

Preparing mentally for golf

I think as in everything else, in golf, confidence and believing that you can do something are keys to actually playing well.  We, humans, have this tendency to spiral miserably when failing. One slice or other golf mistake might cause your confidence to drop, which in turn makes you even worse of a golfer. Lots of professional golfers seem to agree that the key to succeeding in golf is keeping your cool even every shot you take turns out to be terrible. You must have mental attitude of a winner, which means believing in yourself that this bad streak will be over and some time soon enough, you will play golf brilliantly again. If you are afraid of failure, you will be constantly agonizing over that fear on the golf course and won’t be able to achieve anything remarkable that day.

One could argue that all sports need confidence and clear mind, but i think it’s clear why it is more so in golf’s case than any other sport. While other sports are more dynamic and focused on physical strength, golf is more static and a lot depends on clear decision-making. There are few key moments when the fate of the game is decided, so it’s much more likely for players to get nervous in these moments and their nervousness has serious impact on overall result. Because of the difference in styles of playing the sports, being calm, reserved and patient is an advantage for golfers, while being hot-headed might be advantageous for football players. Playing aggressively doesn’t pay in golf because being emotionally charged makes you more likely to make mistakes. In golf, winning strategy is keeping your cool and trying to do your best with every shot.

Still, even with all this knowledge, sometimes making bad golf shots can get to you, but there are few things you can do to fight back. First of all, what i do is, i always go to the golf course prepared for the worst. Before i go to the course, i usually prepare myself for the occasional slice or some other golf mistake, just to be prepared when it actually happens. This allows me to save energy that i would’ve spent on getting down on myself, and use that energy for something productive like trying to find ways to reduce likelihood of slice. Fun fact, i just found out that using certain drivers can be a great way to fix slice. Drivers alone won’t do much, of course, you’ll need to practice too, but still, getting a driver tailored to solve your problem can be a good start. One other thing that helps me do better on the golf course is imagining myself making good shots. I know it may sound strange, but this process somehow motivates me and at least in my head, helps me do better. We’ve all heard of placebo effect, and it might be caused by that, but you don’t have anything to lose if you just try.

Except for making bad shots, there is one other thing that significantly shakes my confidence and that is using golf clubs that aren’t fit to my requirements. It may be little disadvantage in action, even though i don’t think it is and consider it to be serious problem, but in my mind, it’s huge. Whenever i hit golf ball with the clubs that i don’t like, i expect it to go bad, and most of the time, my expectations come true. That’s why, i think, it’s absolutely crucial to get the task of getting a golf club set right. You should spare as much time on researching ins and outs of golf clubs as you can before you decide to buy them. You can also go to local sporting goods store and ask for advice from salesmen there, but i think it’s better to choose golf clubs by yourself.

One more tip i have to give for nervous golfers is to stay focused and take deep breaths. Whenever i am nervous or my hands are shaky, taking deep breaths really helps me stay mentally fit.

Playing Golf on Tight Budget

Lots of people have this image of golf in their heads – a sport that is only for the rich. I know for a fact that isn’t true, because many golfers, myself included, aren’t rich, not even close. So why does it persist? Probably because for some people, playing golf is indeed way to show off their social standing. I think there are many exclusive golf courses because of that very reason. Those people are usually the ones spending thousands on golf gear. Whether they realize that the money is wasted i don’t know, but in reality, it definitely is. That’s because, you don’t have to pay thousands for golf clubs and other stuff just to play golf. You can do it on a tight budget, and i’m going to teach you how.

People who spend a lot of money on golf gear probably don’t realize the simple fact that the money spent on golf, like on most things, brings less and less value as you increase the amount. For example, i can easily teach a inexperienced golfer (who often make slices) how to get perfect club set and stay within the budget of five hundred dollars. It won’t be objectively perfect, of course, but it will be perfect for stereotypical beginner. It will allow him/her to learn as well as giving him/her the room to grow and still play with those same clubs. But if you told me to give you recommendations on how to spend three thousand dollars, i’d quickly run out of good bargains to recommend. There is simply nothing of good value in golf to spend that much money on, so by doing it anyway, you’re setting yourself up for failure.

Don’t worry, i will also be offering solutions to this problem of golf. I believe the best solution would be to learn how to buy golf clubs at cheaper rates. One of the best ways to do that is by buying used golf clubs. Not all used clubs are any good though, some are in fact terrible. You need to know how to distinguish good-condition clubs from bad ones, and also, how to distinguish fakes from real clubs. To judge used golf clubs’ condition, you normally need to be careful when reading description of the item, and also check whether the seller is trustworthy or not. Usually that can be determined by looking at the rating of golf club’s seller. The best, and most trustworthy websites for buying used golf clubs are probably CallawayPreowned, GlobalGolf, and eBay. Some people might think that craigslist should belong on this list too, but in my opinion, while it is useful for other things, craigslist is useless for buying golf clubs. It doesn’t have any safety checks for golf club buyers. eBay does have seller rating, so you can judge used golf club of your choosing depending on that. The other two websites -i’ve mentioned are selling used golf clubs too, but as companies. You aren’t dealing with individual golfers like yourself, as in the case of eBay.

Buying club sets, instead of golf clubs one by one, is another nice way to shave off some savings off your golf-related expenses. Manufacturers usually sell entire sets at very favorable prices, at least compared to buying those same clubs individually. Prices on club sets range from two hundred to more than thousand dollars, depending on the quality of the sets. Personally, i think entire hybrid-set sold by Majek is the best. I might be too biased towards the hybrids though. Holidays, like black friday and others, are the best time to shop around for golf gear. Especially holidays that are during the winter. That’s obviously slow season for golf brands, so they are pushing to sell their clubs more aggressively. You can also save plenty just by choosing the right time to shop for golf gear.

Basketball tips to improve your game

It was the most recent couple of minutes of the diversion. Our group expected to score – urgently. One bin and we would get the two we expected to win. Our group recaptured the ownership on the bounce back, our middle playing to flawlessness, not giving our adversaries a chance to take care of business the ball after they had scored. Our group needed to progress rapidly from resistance to offense. The inside, while still not yet decided, turns her head toward the sideline of the court where I am pausing, with no safeguard stamping me, shouting for a pass.

I had the objective in my sight and range, the bin into which I should shoot, my rivals swarmed surrounding me, my group took up key positions. At that point an idea came inside my head – would it be advisable for me to pass, or would it be a good idea for me to shoot?

This quick, adrenaline siphoning sport is said to be the second quickest diversion on the planet, after ice-hockey. The diversion is played between two groups comprising of five players every, whose rationale is to get this show on the road the ball into the adversary’s container, raised ten feet off the ground.

A courteous fellow named Dr James Naismith, who had recently been the Athletic Director of McGill University in Montreal, had moved to the YMCA Training School, situated in Springfield, Massachusetts. Since the winters were harshly cool, Dr Naismith needed to devise a movement that could be played inside, which would help in creating expertise, while not depending only on quality. A soccer ball and two peach bins as objectives were utilized in the principal b-ball game at any point played.

From those simple beginnings, to the activity pressed game that it has progressed toward becoming today, b-ball has developed and advanced with various adjustments and changes made to it throughout the years. Changes like the style of playing, the guidelines, the court markings, the hardware, etc. Here are a couple of ball tips and traps that you will discover intriguing:

Your group scores by shooting the ball into the crate, obviously. This is a standout amongst the most exciting parts of the diversion.

At the point when going to shoot, it is essential to be loose, while staying concentrated on the bin. While endeavoring bank shots and lay-ups, the player should focus on the backboard.

When shooting the ball, players ought to figure out how to be totally adjusted. Legitimate all-round parity of the body is basic when arranging a shot.

It is vital to build up the expertise to detect the correct time to make a go. Players must not shoot time after time. With enough practice, players will build up the capacity to observe when it is the ideal time to shoot and when not.

When utilizing the bounce shot, the hop ought to be normal and not constrained. Subsequent to hopping straight up, the ball ought to be discharged comfortable peak of their height. A straightforward method to recollect this is: “Up – Hover – Shoot.”

The finish after each shot players take at the bin is likewise imperative. Each time they shoot, players should rehearse a suitable finish.

Try not to pass the ball from the focal point of the court, pick a side and go from that point.

Seemingly, spilling the b-ball is one of the aptitudes that players appreciate the most. There is simply something supernatural about controlling the b-ball with your hands! Here are a couple of key parts of spilling that players must recollect dependably. While spilling, it is vital to figure out how to utilize the body and the other hand to ensure the ball.

All players have one hand that is solid. So as to be an able to use both hands dribbler, the more fragile hand must be fortified by consistent practice.

The most ideal approach to keep the protector wobbly is to figure out how to change the pace of spilling, some of the time speeding it up and at different occasions backing it off.

Another strategy of keeping the safeguard cockeyed is to figure out how to alter course suddenly while spilling.

When the player prevails with regards to beating the safeguard, he/she should figure out how to keep the protector behind you.

Spilling mechanics and methods can be improved by consistent practice.

Buying golf clubs as a beginner

Beginner golfers are often confused about which golf clubs to buy and how. Honestly, i’m not surprised, because with so many different sorts of golf clubs that exist today, even experienced golfers may get flustered sometimes. For example, people can’t figure out the difference between expensive golf clubs and affordable club sets. They both look the same, so how much of a difference does it make to use high end clubs instead of affordable ones? That is one of the most common questions i get, and answer, in my opinion, is that the value you get from money spent on expensive golf clubs steadily decrease proportionally to price’s increase. For example, Callaway Strata Ultimate set costs around four hundred dollars, and i think it’s THE golf club set to get if you’re looking for good value. You can find out more about this set by reading this review. Obviously, it won’t be as good as golf club set made of high end clubs like Mizuno iron sets, but in terms of value for the money, golf club sets like that are unbeatable. Other club sets are fine too, but Callaway, in my opinion, makes the best sets and prices them pretty fairly as well. Speaking of sets, some beginners are also confused about the advantages and disadvantages of buying entire club set vs buying them individually. I think the simplest way to explain is this – unless you have strong preferences for certain clubs in each class, sets are the better option. Why? First of all, brands price their entire club set offerings more competitively, to entice customers into buying them. So when you’re opting for entire set, you are probably saving money too. Second of all, golf club sets come with all the clubs already picked out for you. They sometimes include golf bag and other additional stuff you might need. All you have to do is, take them out and start playing. Now, that might be crucial disadvantage if you’re peculiar about which clubs to choose. I’ve already recommended Callaway Strata set before, i just wanted to add – other brands sell pretty good sets as well. For example, if you’re fan of hybrids, you can find all-hybrid set sold by Majek on Amazon. It’s one of the best sets intended for seniors, but i think everyone would benefit from using them.  One other advantage of buying entire golf club sets is that they come with other accessories you might need, like golf bags. These bags separately would cost you a lot, but when you’re buying them all together, each one turns out to cost surprisingly little.

Overall, to sum it all up, my advice is this. 1. Don’t spend too much money on golf clubs at the beginning. Expensive clubs won’t make that much difference anyway. If you want to improve your golf skills, that money would be better spent on taking lessons and going to the course frequently. Experience is the best teacher. 2. This is kind of related to first advice – if you’re just getting started in golf, for budgetary, time-saving and many other reasons, i would advice to buy club set instead of individual clubs.

Choosing golf clubs as a beginner

Buying your first set of clubs can be confusing. There are so many different options and as many things to consider before choosing either one of them. Honestly, it can get a little bit dizzy. That’s why, whenever people ask me for recommendation on golf clubs, i simply recommend to get any one of the affordable club sets that are so popular today. They are popular for a good reason – the price they cost is much lower than the value they provide. That’s rarely the case when it comes to golf clubs, but these are the rare exceptions. So if you want quick fix to your problem of not having golf clubs as a beginner, then i recommend Callaway strata or any similar club sets. If you aren’t lazy to do the research, then stick with me, i’ll try to explain how to choose solid golf clubs as a beginner for best outcome.

First of all, you should define what your goal is. What do you hope to achieve by playing golf? If you’re just hoping to have some good time on weekends, then there’s no need to do a lot of research. Just get the clubs i’ve mentioned before and you should be good to go. If you are a bit more enthusiastic about golf, you might need to spend a little bit more time on choosing the right clubs for yourself. You should also remember that you can’t just spend your way out of golf problems. Spending thousands on golf clubs might be fun for some people, but it doesn’t guarantee results. If you are serious about golf, you should be ready to spare some time as well as money for it. The time should be spent on taking golf lessons, refining your swing and a lot of practice on the course. If you’re willing to go through the practice, then expensive golf clubs might actually be a good choice. Some people assume that if you want to play golf on serious level, you have to spend tons of money on golf equipment. That belief is only half true. Yes, top notch golf clubs cost a lot of money, but there are tricks and workarounds that you can use to get desired results. One of the most obvious solutions to golf gear that is too expensive for your budget, is the option of buying them used. Sometimes, you can find clubs that are barely used for one third of the initial price, or even less than that. It is very smart to buy used clubs when you’re beginner. After all, you haven’t played with any sort of clubs before, so you can’t know what kind of clubs you need. If you’re an intermediate golfer, one of the clubs from this list might be good for you. 

If you can make your budget stretch far, fitting your clubs might also be a good idea. Properly fitted clubs beat expensive clubs every time. Otherwise, take a golfer friend to the golf shop so that two of you can try out different clubs and see which one will fit your bodily measurements the best. Having golf clubs of the right size is crucial in every way, especially when you’re swinging the club. While we’re on topic of swinging, it should also be mentioned that some types of clubs are actually easier to swing than others. For instance, hybrids tend to be much more forgiving than long irons, and list goes on. These kinds of clubs are labeled as “Game improvement”, and while their effects on your overall results might be a little bit stretched, they can indeed offer some help to beginners.


Is utility iron good for you?

Utility irons are becoming increasingly popular among the ranks of professional golfers, which naturally raises the question: is utility irons’ usefulness limited to experienced players, or can beginners and average golfers benefit from using them as well? For that, we have to first discuss nature of this type of clubs. Some people use the terms hybrids and utility clubs interchangeably, but utility iron is entirely different animal from a hybrid. Unlike hybrids, which usually promote high launch, utility irons’ shots fly lower and they are more accurate in comparison. Despite that, utility irons have their drawbacks as well. For example, they are much harder to hit than normal irons, which is why experienced golf instructors think that beginners should not use them. Now let’s move on to exploring that question further.

How to tell which type of golf club you prefer?

In general, most golf experts agree on one thing – if your golf swing is slower than hundred miles per hour, you’ll most likely be better off by using a hybrid. But there is disagreement over this opinion as well. Some slow swingers find utility irons easier to hit than hybrids. Their club face is much easier to align and hit properly than that of long irons or even hybrid clubs. So it generally comes down to which part of hitting your club you find it difficult. Hybrids, on the other hand, have many advantages over both utility irons and long irons. For once, their center of gravity, positioned in the lower part of the club head, promotes higher launch and straighter shots, which is very useful to most beginner golfers. Fairway woods have certain advantages too, for example, larger club face, which makes it easier to hit balls.  Long irons are not entirely without advantages of their own, either. Sure, they do require a lot of training and high swing speed to be effective on the course, but once you have those prerequisites, they may prove to be more forgiving and give you better distance as well as accuracy than any other types of clubs.

To sum it all up, I think utility irons are great choice for your golf bag, as long as you know what to use them for. Before getting any golf club, you should also research and find out what your weaknesses and strengths are. If you do conclude that utility irons are exactly what you need, you should read more about utility irons on GolfClubsGuru. Choosing golf clubs that put more emphasis on your strong sides and de-emphasize your weaknesses is key to success in golf, I think. It goes without saying that you need golf lessons too, without that, you won’t have ability to use these clubs properly at all.


Golf for Beginner Ladies – where to start

There is stereotype that golf is only for rich white dudes to play. That stereotype is probably enforced by it’s male-dominated past, but in 21st century, that’s not the case anymore. There are separate golf competitions for women and sometimes they are even televised. Instagram is full of women who golf and there is never ending stream of fans – both male and female, following them. The past used to be different though – as little as 50 years ago, 95% of golfers were males and a woman playing golf on the course was unheard of. But there were some brave women, who, in spite of what society expected them to do, chose to play this sport and ignore the naysayers. Fortunately, today it’s not weird for ladies to play golf anymore. Both my wife and daughter play golf, and i’ve seen many of her friends on the golf course as well. Truth is, golf is very fitting sport for women – it’s not very physically demanding. You need just as much preparation and exercise as you need strength to achieve success.

 Golf club manufacturers used to ignore women, but today, golf is the fastest growing demographic among golf fans. So, naturally, brands are doing their best to come up with best designs and ideas for women’s golf clubs and apparels. Style might not have been important for most men, but women do pay attention, which has forced manufacturers to catch up to these realities. I think they are doing fine because i’ve seen few great looking women’s clubs lately. Same goes for apparel manufacturers – golf shoes, bags or even umbrellas have never been prettier. I think that’s direct result of golf slowly becoming female-dominated sport. Whenever people ask me for example of perfect women’s club, i always cite kalea series by taylormade.  Granted, i don’t know if there’s actually going to be a time when there are more female players than guys, but i sure hope so.

 It makes sense that number of women who like to play golf is increasing rapidly – golf is great sport and women have been excluded from it before. I just wish we could accelerate the process though. Whjenever i ask women to play golf, first thing they say is that they prefer not to, because they don’t know how to play. The fear of the unknown is common not only among women, but among everyone. Letting that fear dictate your life choices is a mistake though. This problem can easily solved by parents introducing girls to the sports, as well as boys. Some people exclude the girls from sports, saying that it’s not for them, even if the child enjoys it, which i think is a bad mistake. You should encouage everyone to play sports as children if they show signs of enjoying it and being good at it. Whenever i hear that reason, i reply with – most people who play golf, including myself, aren’t really very good at it. Most of the time, it doesn’t change their mind, but i still say it because it’s the truth. Even if excellence is your goal, you won’t truly become great golfer until you actually play the sport and get the experience. All great women who played golf achieved their level of mastery because of trial and error, not because of being afraid of failure. Honestly, most of the people i meet on the golf course are not good golfers, not even close. But being willing to try is what matters. Still, if it’s super important to you to not embarrass yourself on the golf course, i would advise to take a lesson or two. Few hours of practice before heading out to golf course can go a long way. It won’t cost you that much. In case you have lady or guy friends who play golf at least casually, you’re in luck, for two reasons. First of all, you’ll have someone who can teach you a lot while having fun in the process. It also doesn’t hurt to do a bit of informational research regarding what golf clubs are, how to use them and basics like that. There are some excellent tutorials explaining difference between drivers, irons and other types of clubs. Videos can be a good source for golf knowledge as well. But mostly, you learn how to play golf by just playing it.

Second of all, they’ll most definitely invite you to the course to play with them, and you’ll have company to play with. I believe golf is a game best enjoyed with group of friends. Playing golf can also be great tool to network and make new friends. There are many wonderful people in my life who i wouldn’t have met otherwise.

 Despite what i said about golf not being physically demanding, playing it can still be a great exercise. Especially if you choose to walk on the golf course instead of driving a cart. Walking, obviously, is the best cardio exercise there is. Just keep in mind that you’ll need good walking shoes for that. But don’t worry, there are plenty of quality walking shoes on the market. They are stylish, too, because of the brands adjusting to women’s need.

 Most importantly, the goal of playing golf isn’t to get better at it. The goal is to enjoy yourself and spend time with your friends and family. Unlike most games, golf isn’t that competitive, it’s more relaxing. At least, that’s how it is for me. Of course, there are people who pride themselves on the championships they’ve won or excellent shots they make, and i’m happy for them, but that’s totally up to you to choose. On golf course, no one is going to judge you for not having good enough swing or something like that.

Are knockoff golf clubs really that bad?

The topic of knockoff golf clubs and other golf accessories have always intrigued me. They are supposed to be terrible and total waste of money, at least that’s what everyone around me have been saying all the time. I would think that it’s rumors spread by golf club brands, to prevent us from getting the same product at cheaper price, but /no. My actual friends have told me stories after stories about how bad those knockoffs are, and they have nothing to gain from me spending more money on golf clubs, so i have to believe in their honesty.

 I did a little investigation. Reading online forums and asking facebook and other communities especially about this topic. Turns out, at least third of golfers own some kind of knockoff golf products. It’s not always golf club, it can be golf ball or even putting mat. And based on their experiences, turns out, knockoff products aren’t exclusively good or bad, but more of a wild card. Depending on your luck, when you buy a knockoff product, you could be either getting a product that only looks like a golf club, but functions nothing like it, or the exact same replica of golf club for half the price. I guess if you’re feeling lucky, go for it, but always remember that it’s a gamble.

 Another reason why i don’t like the idea of knockoffs are the low price of used golf clubs. Clubs from 1-2 years ago, or even this year’s golf clubs, can be found on eBay for half or even third of the prices. And they’re not bad at all – it’s just that new golf clubs get released every year, and people who can afford to buy them want to recycle their old (months old, actually) golf clubs and get whatever money out of selling them they can. And they are not hard negotiators or anything either. I’ve seen some excellent golf clubs be sold on eBay for unbelievably low prices, just because owners didn’t care to market it properly and basically wanted to get rid of it. You can’t always tell when a golf club is fake, so if you are a beginner, you’ll need help to figure it out. This guide does very good job of giving helpful tips and tricks on choosing irons and other clubs as beginner.

 So that’s what i found out about used golf clubs today. Please share your experience with them in the comments.
