Online Golf Shopping: Tips List

We all understand the woes of online shopping that’s what blogs like try to do. Finding you the best equipment at the best prices from the best places with reviews of the equipment. We have helped you learn how to choose the right driver, wedge, putter, shoes, etc but what about when it comes down to actually purchasing the club? Here are a few tips to keep in mind.

  • Looks for a secure checkout
  • Search out customer reviews of both the product and the online store
  • Compare the prices
  • Authorized dealer of the equipment (golf manufactures sometimes take a while to update their lists online so take them with a grain of salt)
  • If the deal looks too good to be true it probably is- most prices of golf clubs are regulated by the manufacturers and can’t be sold under a certain amount if their advertising waaaay lower it’s probably a fake.
  • Check out the privacy policy (keep your data safe) and the return policy (one thing we like about GolfClubs.com is they have a 30 day playability guarantee)
  • Look for discount code online (they all have them floating around)
  • Best thing about shopping online you can always find the club in stock somewhere!
  • Good Luck

Most Cart Friendly Carry Bag

When you buy a carry golf bag you generally plan on actually carrying it around the course. Well that might not always be the case. That’s why Sun Mountain made a carry bag that was also friendly to strap onto the golf cart. The new version of their already popular Superlight 3.5 carry bag is the perfect solution to the carry/cart controversy.

The new design features that make it cart friendly are it’s 4-way divided top, 3 handholds (easy to lift out of the cart), and secure stand bag legs. The revamped new shape allows the bag to stand straight opposed to being positioned sideways. An added strap makes sure the bag doesn’t twist around so you have all access to those 7 pockets in the bag.

It’s the perfect hybrid golf bag for the walking golfer (we know your only doing it because you have to).

Hirzl Golf Glove Review

A golf glove can be worth a thousand words or shanks depending on how good the glove is. Thankfully a new player is in town. The popular Swiss glove maker Hirzl has finally made it’s way over the pond and here to the U.S. As discussed on The Hackers Paradise it’s been a good tester round.

Why are Hirzl golf gloves so much better than the standard glove?

Made with some unique material including Kangaroo leather on the palm and mesh/cabretta back on the Trust series of gloves. Hirzl unique GRIPPP technology delivers players what they say is 3x better grip in dry weather and 5x better grip in wet weather.

Sound too good to be true? Reviewed by the USGA these beauties conform to the rules of golf, so you can carry them in your bag to the next tournament you play in.

Only carried by a handful of stores in the U.S. including GolfClubs.com the Hirzl golf gloves are a but pricier than the average golf glove but if you have learned anything from this review is that these gloves are way above average.

Available in three different gloves: Trust Control Glove, Trust Feel Glove, Sofft flex glove

Taylormade Burner 2.0 TP Fairway Wood Review

Featuring that same Superfast technology as the TaylorMade Burner Superfast driver, which means it’s got a lighter longer shaft, lighter grip and a larger more forgiving clubhead. A light club leads to what they describe as game changing technology. With a lower and deeper center of gravity it gives players more power and a high launch angle for more carry distance. With their unique non-glare white clubhead and black face it’s the perfect visual alignment aid.

Our review is that they give a nice swing, really easy with a good tempo. The SuperFast Burner 2.0 TP Fairway Wood is a solid club, great weighting and the back swing feels effortless. It has a great look at address and it’s playing ability is definitely up to par with TaylorMade status. We would recommend this obviously to the more skilled or advanced players and we can assure you, you won’t be disappointed.

Cleveland CG16 Wedges Review

If you didn’t think Cleveland could improve their wedges any more they might surprise you. Complete with conforming grooves for the season the new CG16 wedges still use precision laser milling on the face. A little about the upgrades from the CG15 include the Tour Zip Grooves with additional lines of laser etchings in between the grooves for added surface roughness and gripping power. Still giving you great spin control for a wedge. The CG16’s sports a cavity back design and a deeper hollow cavity. The reason for the cavity back design switch was to increase MOI for better forgiveness. It also adds stability and forgiveness for off-center hits.

Both the black pearl finish and satin chrome look great at address. It feels good and plays well. Even with the new grooves we are finding that it doesn’t affect the shots too much. It’s still the top wedge we have tested this year the only wedge in comparison is the CG15 wedge we tested last year. Even though there are a “tour tested design” we think they work even better for the aspiring mid handicappers who are looking for a bit more forgiveness in a wedge. You can find the CG16 wedges at GolfClubs.com with free shipping.
