With all the shiny new golf equipment coming out each year and the prices slowly going up how do I keep the costs down while buying quality golf gear??
What I notice as a PGA professional is golfers coming in for lessons with these cheap sets straight out of a sporting store. What happens with these clubs is that they are to heavy for the golfer and shaft flex and lengths that don’t match the golfers swing.
1st tip is to speak to your PGA Professional to get a ball park idea of what you should use i.e. Length, shaft flex and shaft weight as a minimum. This is beneficial so you can look for a quality 2nd hand set. Enquire with us at Emajin golf and we can arrange a 15min zoom call to help you out.
Another alternate if you want to purchase that one set that will be you’re set for the next 5-10 years I recommend to build it one club at a time until you’re ready.
My suggestion is to start with
Brand new 7iron fitted to you.
When we have caught the golfing bug and want to add more clubs, next I would get:
#5 Fairway wood
Sand wedge (56 degree wedge)
Lastly speak to your coach or Club PGA Professional the remaining options i.e:
Additional Fairway wood options
Additional Hybrid options
Irons to fill the gaps i.e. 4 iron to Pitching Wedge
Lob wedge (60 degrees wedge)
The advantages of having fewer clubs is when selecting the shot on the course you have fewer options which actually assists with decision making.
