Golfers have too many clubs in their bags. And why is that?
Well, large golf club companies sell their clubs in sets - irons / hybrids have 7, 8 or even 9 clubs in the set and matalwoods are sold as a set of either 3 or 4 clubs. So the golfer buys between 10 and 13 clubs. For players who score 90 or higher (that is 95% of all golfers), the difference in distance for each club is minimal at best. For slower swinging players (those who drive under 190 yards), the difference in distance for each club is NOTHING (yes....0 yards).
For these 95% of all golfers, they should carry a maximum of 8 clubs in their set (plus a putter). And the clubs should have a wider spread in loft angle so that the player could actually see a difference in distance between each club. This method not only simplifies the selection process and makes the game easier but also lightens the load of equipment.
For this reason, Condor Golf sells custom clubs individually and we encourage customers to take advantage of this. If you are unsure what make-up of clubs you need, PLEASE contact us, we will be more than happy to advise you!
Saving strokes on the golf course is the result of becoming more consistent in ALL parts of a golfers short game from off the green...chipping, pitching and sand shots. When the player is proficient with these shots, he or she will consistently score lower.
The large OEM golf companies want customers to believe that buying a new driver will make the player have a faster "swing speed" and thus hit the ball longer. Unfortunately that only works with 1/2 of 1% of all golfers who have the ability to swing a driver with balance, consistent tempo and correct mechanics to hit the ball in the center of the face 100% of the time. The other 99.5% of golfers don't have that ability.
However, 100% of golfers can become better short game players through better technique (plus common sense) and/or having the clubs fit to their ability and physical make-up. It does not take strength or club head speed to become better short game players.
