Why I Buy Golf Clubs Online

Jun 19, 2008
Thinking of buying a new golf club? What are you looking for? A gambler would say "a buck gets you ten" it's a new driver or possibly a hybrid club. The question I ask,is why?

It never fails to amuse me that any discussion about golf eventually gets to the point where someone says " I'm thinking of buying a new driver". The conversation will then follow along the lines of such and such company has brought out a new club that gives you an extra twenty yards, or will cure a slice or will take you out to dinner and make you the greatest golfer the world has ever seen. The hype goes on and the world turns and in six months time another company has a club which will do all this and more. And give you an extra twenty yards.

The golf ball manufacturers must rub their hands in glee when they hear these conversations. For the average amateur player the extra twenty yards will only mean the ball will end up even further into the woods.Am I wrong?

There is not a club made that will do all that for the weekend golfer. These tests are done on machines that perform the same swing over and over. Is your swing completely the same two times in a row?

If you are thinking of buying a new or even used club, concentrate your money where it will do the most good. Bill Gates can ignore this. For the average guy who plays golf, the best value for money can be had in the golf wedge store.

Around seventy per cent of your golf game will be played in the scoring zone, at around the 120 yard mark and in.So the driver is out. At this distance the clubs to use are wedges, from the pitching wdge to the lob wedge. Think about it for a moment, three quarters of the shots you hit will be with a wedge of one sort or another so doesn't it make sense to invest your cash where it will work for you.

I buy all my wedges online and at the bottom of this article you will find a link to my website. My website is all about, you guessed it, golf wedges.The point is you can buy two solid wedges for the price of a driver and you will use both of them twice as much. Would you buy a race car to go shopping? No, don't need it, don't want it. So why buy a driver for $400 when you will use it four or five times in a round?

Buying wedges online makes sense for me because I play a lot of golf and I like to experiment. I will buy a new club, play with it a little while and if I can't get it to do what I want or I just don't like it, I'll relist it and sell it on. The fact that prices of clubs are pretty bouyant allows me to swop clubs four or five times a year and pay very little if anything for the privilege. Heck, sometimes I make a profit.

The one thing I have found is that wedges are like girlfriends, some suit you down to the ground and your'e sorry to see them go, others, you just want them out of the house. For this reason I do not give reccomendations on any particular club but I will say Padraig Harrington and I share a favourite.
