Titleist. Callaway. Srixon. Ping. Hogan. Wilson. Taylor Made… The list of great golf club manufacturers seemingly goes on forever, and it leaves many wondering: How do I find a set of golf clubs that’s perfect for my game? 
We recently asked Keith Stewart, PGA Head Professional at Springdale Golf Club and the ‘Director of Fun,’ this very question and his answers quickly turned this small dilemma into an opportunity for education and entertainment.
Stewart writes:
Looking to buy clubs? Increase the Experience. 
Buying clubs should be a shared experience. Far gone are the days of purchasing equipment off the rack, miles from the golf course with little information. So here’s a couple valuable insights to preserve your time and make the most of your investment. 
  • Grass is better. Golf isn’t played in a strip mall. Don’t be intimidated by dress codes and fancy clubs. PGA Professionals are accessible and courses and driving ranges are everywhere in 2020. 
  • This is the best New Year’s resolution! More physical activity is the most common resolution. Since many people play golf as a form of activity, buying new equipment should also be an activity not a click of the mouse.
  • Golf was a social game before it was a competitive game. Take a friend and meet a PGA Professional. Learn about your swing and how modern equipment can help make you better. Laugh, learn and have fun together. Enjoying the game with others is the best.  
Make the most of your equipment investment and go outdoors, take advantage of the physical activity and see and meet other people with similar interests. If you do, not only will you have the right equipment, but you’ll have the best golf experience as well. 
Get out there and have some fun!
