The Newest Golf Clubs on the Market

Every year, manufacturers are studying golf products and coming up with new innovations to help golfers to make swings that will hit golf balls so they will travel farther and provide more flexibility with the type of swing that a golfer wishes to make. This year is no exception. Some amazing new technology has appeared on the golf course that is making waves throughout the golf industry.

Smart Club Sets

Technology is being placed into the grips of the golf clubs to help track the golfer’s performance. Currently found in Cobra Golf’s King 58 and 58+ lines, sensors in the grips analyze everything from distance, shots, and location. Then the sensors send the information to a smartphone app. The smartphone app analyzes the information and further breaks it down to tell you about strokes gained, chipping, handicaps and other details so you can modify your swings for better performance.

Utility Clubs

The Open Championship last summer proved the amazing benefits that utility clubs can provide. Utility clubs are replacements for irons as they have deeper and lower centers of gravity with their mass. This characteristic helps to get the ball airborne for long shots. So it is another club to have in your arsenal for your game.

New Mallets

Blade putters became customary for good golf players. Yet mallets have made a comeback as new technology provides weighting in the mallet so the mallet’s face angles downward once the putter is balanced in your hand. This manner provides better alignment and aim. You game more stability when sinking the ball into the hole.

The year 2018 will bring some major changes to the way golfers play their game. Check out the amazing technologies that are being introduced into clubs. You will find the right technologies that will allow you to improve your performance.

 

Ways to Figure Out If Your Golf Clubs are the Right Size

Sometimes when you are an amateur golfer, you can save money by getting a friend to give you a set of old clubs. They may no longer play golf, or the clubs might be a starter set that they don’t need anymore as they plan to get customized clubs later.

Using the clubs has been awesome because you get to learn the pace of the game as well as the feel of the clubs as you swing them. You were also able to save money. However, as you gain more experience, you might begin to wonder whether the golf clubs are the right size for you. Should you be playing with longer or shorter clubs?

Sizing Golf Clubs

Interestingly enough, there are many ways to measure yourself to determine the length of the golf clubs that you need. The two basic measurements that you should know are your regular height and the height of your wrist to the floor. Another measurement is measuring your wrist height from the floor while your knees are bent.

Your Height

Your height can be used to determine the length of the iron that you want to have. The standard length for clubs is used for people who are between the 5’9″ to 6 feet in height. For every 3 inches in height from this measurement, you would add or subtract 1/2 inches to the length of the club.

If you are between 6’0″ to 6’3″ in height, you want a club with an extra 1/2 inch to the standard length. If you are 5’6″ to 5’9″ in height, you want a club that subtracts 1/2 inches in length from the standard size.

Your Wrist-to-Floor Height

You could also measure the height of your wrist from the floor. You need to stand up straight with your arms held loosely at your sides. Have someone measure from the crease of your wrist down to the level floor. This measurement can be used with your height measurements to also determine the right length of the clubs.

Your Wrist-to-Floor Height with Knees Bent

Some golfers also measure their wrist height when they bend their knees to determine a length for the driver that they should use. To get this measurement for yourself, make sure to stand with your feet apart at shoulder length. Then slightly bend your knees and hold your hands together while locking your fingers in front of your body. Have someone measure the height from your wrists to the floor.

Once you have the measurements, you can take them to a club fitter or pro shop to get the right length for your clubs. Always test out the swing of the irons, drivers, and putter to get one that feels right in your hands and that has the perfect grip. To maximize your golf experience, consider investing in a remote control golf caddie to pack your new clubs around the course.
