How to Use Golf Club Reviews to Buy Clubs

By Bobby Ingram

Purchasing a new set of golf clubs can be a pricey endeavor that should be done only after doing some research. A good first step to choosing your clubs is to use online reviews to narrow an otherwise overwhelming range of equipment that is for sale to a short list of clubs you may wish to buy.


Difficulty: Moderately Easy
Step 1
Analyze your swing to determine what you are looking for in your clubs. Graphite shafts, for example, can add extra whip to a slower swing. However, graphite could be too malleable for your swing speed, leading to broken clubs.
Step 2
Read online reviews of many different brands of clubs to create a short list of sets you may be interested in purchasing. is a good source for reviews featuring an exhaustive array of pro-and-con reviews.
Step 3
Speak to the local professional or employee at your local golf equipment store to get his or her opinion of which of the sets on your short list might work best for you.
Step 4
Ask to test clubs that are on your short list at a driving range. Using the clubs will allow you to learn which ones feel the best in your hands and produce the best results.
Step 5
Purchase the clubs you find most enjoyable to hit with. While reviews and professional opinions are helpful in narrowing your search, ultimately the best clubs for you are those that you are most comfortable using.
