2017 Gear Guide

2017 Gear Guide

Technology continues to improve the performance of golf clubs. Despite USGA limits, club designers are finding new ways to make the ball leave clubfaces at ever-faster speeds. Iron faces are getting thinner and thus “springier.” Golf balls have softer covers to produce stop-fast control but fly even further. Milling techniques produce more spin and buttery sensations of “feel.”

The 2017 Colorado AvidGolfer Gear Guide lists clubs and balls that can increase your enjoyment of our favorite pastime. Our selections help narrow the number of products you should try and see for yourself.

The club manufacturers stress the need for “fitting” to help us achieve greater consistency. Quantitative analysis does enable us to achieve better results, but remember you can’t just buy a better game. Lessons and practice are also rumored to help.
