Buying Clubs

How to Buy Your Next Set of Irons

8 Lessons Easy

About this course

From my experience with friends and customers, people tend to buy golf clubs in one of two ways:

  1. They get fitted for their sticks

  2. They buy clubs... putting it nicely, haphazardly

If you're in the first group, congrats!  You don't need to go any farther in this course.  But if you're in the second group... you should probably keep going.

Look, it's not because you don't know what you're doing.  You likely do.  It's just that there are a lot of companies that aren't so much into helping you play better as they are into making money.

The purpose of this course is to help accomplish both goals.

You buy irons that you love and will help you play better, the club manufacturers sell clubs and make money.
