How can you sell golf clubs at such a low price, when similar name brand ones cost 3 to 4 times as much?
When you order our golf clubs, you are buying direct, cutting out the middleman and all the mark ups that go along with them. Independent surveys show that up to 70% of the retail price of a name brand golf club goes to support the advertising and brand name development. Advertising in major golf magazines or national television networks costs millions of dollars every year. This along with the tens of millions of dollars in endorsement money to PGA Tour professionals requires a hefty mark up on their golf clubs. Some people feel better about paying 4 times more for their golf clubs knowing Tiger or Phil play with the same ones. Unfortunately, the clubs the professionals use are custom made for them and the only similarity between their clubs and the ones people buy off the rack is usually the logo, like Callaway, Nike, Ping and Taylormade. Our customers, on the other hand, feel better knowing they are getting similar quality and performance for a quarter of the price many of their friends paid.
How do your clone, knockoff golf clubs compare to name brand ones?
Clone golf clubs are not to be confused with the branded products they may seek to flatter, like Callaway, Nike, Ping and Taylormade. But they are made from essentially the same materials and design principles, use many of the same shaft and grip suppliers, and perform similarly to the name brands golf clubs.
The important point is we buy our heads, shafts, and grips from the same small community of golf manufacturing suppliers. We provide performance but offer you a BETTER VALUE.
Are clone, knockoff golf clubs illegal?
Some shady club manufacturers try to fool the consumer that their product is or is the same as the name brand golf clubs. An illegal knockoff and/or counterfeit is a product that violates the legal trade dress rights, trademarks, patents or copyrights of another company. TourGolfClubs.com is very careful not to violate the valid rights of other companies and works closely with many of them, so we can ensure you are getting a legal, high quality product.
What does flex mean?
Flex refers to the amount of bend that a shaft has. A more flexible shaft will help the club "whip" through the ball, creating greater clubhead speed and more distance. This works well for golfers with slower swing speeds. Golfers that swing the club hard and fast will lose accuracy if the shaft is too flexible and should get a stiffer shaft
What kind of shaft should I select?
Shaft performance is one of the most important parts of the club. Shafts come in either steel or graphite and are chosen based on the club and type of golfer. TourGolfClubs only offers high quality shafts to meet a majority of all golfers' needs.
Irons Other than seniors and Ladies, we typically recommend steel shafts for all irons. Steel provides for better consistency and feel. Seniors and Ladies with slower swing speeds will benefit from the added distance a graphite shaft will provide.
Woods All TourGolfClubs woods come assemble with graphite shafts. The graphite shafts for woods are lighter and just as accurate as steel.
What kind of grip should I select?
Grip choice is all about feel and comfort for the golfer. A good grip allows the golfer to have more control and consistency with their golf shots. Many professionals replace their grips every year.
Why do I need more than one wedge?
Next to your putter, the wedge can be one of the most important clubs in your bag. Most golfers only carry a pitching wedge (46°) and sand wedge (54°) in their bag for shots that range from 120 yards to a few feet off the green. However, having additional wedges with different lofts allow you to take better aim at the flag with a consistent swing versus trying to over hit or under hit the wrong club. Wedges typically come in the following lofts
Pitching wedge - 46° For shots 110 - 125 yards
Approach Wedge - 50° For shots 85 - 110 yards
Sand Wedge - 54° For shots 50-85 yards or bunkers
Lob Wedge - 60° For shots less then 50 yards
Some irons allow you to purchase all wedges within a product line, or you can select from our wide range of wedges available for individual purchase.
What are the differences in the materials used?
Golf club heads can be made from many materials. Zinc and Aluminum alloys are primarily used in beginners' sets and putters. 431 stainless steel is a softer stainless steel and is very commonly used in high quality iron heads. 17-4 stainless steel is a harder steel found in professional quality irons and steel wood heads.
Titanium is the most expensive material used in building golf clubs heads and combines lightweight and excellent strength. Titanium is used today in the highest end woods manufactured, usually drivers. 15-3-3-3 or SP 700 is the premier titanium to manufacture heads. Keep in mind that most titanium heads just have the higher-grade titanium just in the face area while using a 9-6AL-4V titanium for the body.
Titanium is lighter than stainless steel given a specific volume. What does this mean?The biggest we can make a stainless steel driver is about 275 cc (volume). To go bigger than that, we have to use Titanium. Currently we can take a Titanium driver up to 600 ccs in size. Will a larger driver allow you to hit the ball further? The simple answer is no! A larger hitting surface will be more forgiving and will allow you to hit more consistent drives, however it will not generally translate to longer drives.
