Advantages to Buying Golf Club Sets

Posted by in Articles

Some golfers prefer to select each club in their bag individually based on its reputation for performance or the purported advantages of that particular club and mix and match manufacturers. However, this is not always the most advantageous way to gain a competitive advantage in the game. There are advantages to buying a complete set from one golf club maker.

Complete Set Benefits

Arguably the most important advantage to be gained from buying a golf club set is that each club is made consistently and will provide consistency of swing mechanics. Individual irons and woods have the same general weight, feel, and balance, unlike adding in a hickory-shafted club which would give the golfer a much different experience. No matter what company manufactures the set, a golfer can feel the same swing with every club in the bag.

What this means to the golfer is that he or she can perfect their balance with this consistency of swing. It allows the golfer to concentrate on the game instead of adjusting to the club. Since golf club sets all use the same grips on each club, this is another factor which does not need adjustment on the course.

Incomplete Sets

Golfers who choose to select each club individually often end up without a complete golf club set. Some choose to replace a particular type of club one year and then plan on replacing the rest in subsequent years. Unfortunately, sometimes this just does not happen, either because of the cost or the time involved. By the time a golfer buys new woods to go with the irons he replaced previously, those irons probably need to be purchased again, too. It becomes a vicious cycle to obtain a complete set of new clubs.

Price is a big consideration when deciding whether to purchase individual golf clubs or those in a complete set. Golf club sets will always be more cost effective than buying one club at a time. Even when the same manufacturer makes individual clubs and sets, the golf club sets will be less expensive.

While it may make sense to buy an individual club here and there as new technology comes out and manufacturers create an exceptional driver or putter, overall buying golf club sets provides more a benefit to the typical golfer.
