Callaway Junior Golf Clubs Review

By Brad Wilbricht

Specs

Callaway's XJ Junior Sets are an excellent starting point for golfers ranging from 5 to 12 years of age. The 5- to 8-year XJ Junior Set consists of a driver and fairway wood, two irons, 2-ball putter and a carry bag. XJ Junior Sets for 9- to12-year-olds offer a driver and fairway wood, three irons, 2-ball putter and a carry bag. They're available in boys and girls models, with the appropriate color scheme matching each version. Callaway's XJ Junior Sets range from $199 to $239, providing consumers with reasonable price points.

Perks

The breakdown into two age ranges in Callaway's XJ Junior Sets allows junior golfers to find the correct fit while growing into their set in future years. The sets include high-quality components including stainless steel irons, just like Callaway's main product lines for men and women. The 360cc titanium driver head translates to maximum consistency and forgiveness for junior golfers.

Sacrifices

Because of the consolidation of age groups within the two junior set configurations, fitting can become difficult at times. Also, with junior golfers often experiencing growth spurts throughout their childhood years, it's not uncommon for a youngster to outgrow a junior set in just one season. Adjustable junior clubs on the market allow for more customization and can prove to be a more cost-effective solution.

Bottom Line

While adjustable junior clubs might be more efficient, Callaway's XJ Junior Sets offers unmatched quality and durability for young golfers. Just like adult players, seasoned junior golfers require enhanced feel and forgiveness. Callaway's XJ Junior Sets certainly fit the bill.
