How to Choose the Right Senior Golf Clubs

How to Choose the Right Senior Golf Clubs

When you are thinking about changing golf clubs to suit you better as you get a bit older, you want to look for golf clubs that will improve your distance as well. You may want to have an iron that is custom made, a hybrid club or a clone wood. Althoughclone clubs are slightly different from traditional clubs, many golfers find that these more suitable for their changing needs. Whether you need new irons, woods or drivers you can find some with just enough flex in the shaft that will help you gain more distance. There are many manufacturers of ‘senior-specific’ clubs such as Calloway, Wedgewood, Adams and Nike. You need to choose a golf club that has enough flex in the shaft, but not too much. It will depend on your ability to swing the club as the amount of flex you need. The flex is what allows the golf club to bend as you swing and connect with the ball.  A senior golf club has a little more flex in the shaft. Many golf course pro shops have golf clubs with different flex shaft ratings that you can try out on the driving range.  Before you buy a club, trying different shaft flexes helps you to find the one you need without mistakenly buying the wrong one. You can also find a shop that custom makes golf clubs for senior golfers and potentially have a set of clubs make especially to enhance your game. Whether you buy an expensive senior golf club or a discounted club will not matter as long as you buy the right club...

Best putter for seniors #1

Part of the Best Golf Clubs for Seniors series Getting to the green is, of course, an important part of any golf game. But if you can’t get the ball in the hole once you get there… Here’s my take on some of the most popular putters around with particular emphasis on the best putters for senior golfers.   1. Pinemeadow Golf PGX Putter Not a brand I’d heard of before but this looks like a funky putter with certain attributes which make it suitable for senior golfers. For one thing, it’s a bright white (at least before you start to use it!) which makes it easier to focus on if your eyesight isn’t quite what it was! It comes in two versions,  Pinemeadow Golf Men’s PGX Putter and Pinemeadow Golf Women’s PGX Putter . The manufacturer points out that this white finish helps the putter really stand out against the green, helping you focus on the black alignment lines that help ensure your putt is on target from the start. At 380g this mallet putter is ‘tour weighted’ making it particularly suitable for faster greens. It also comes with a free custom PGX headcover. Some of those who have used it make comments like “I can say without hesitation I love, not like, this putter” and “I have gone from [being] a 3-putter to a 2-putter”.   2. Odyssey White Hot Pro 2 Putter For those with deeper pockets, this option from Callaway features a gun-metal PVD finish and a ‘White Hot’ insert. Callaway claimed its inserts have become an “iconic part of the game” with more wins, top-1o finishes...
