Guaranteed Way to Buy Your Golf Game

 

Christmas has come and gone. You’ve returned the clubs you got under the tree that were not even close to what you had asked for. Now you’re scrolling through all the new releases for the year with visions of a perfect swing and a low handicap.

It’s January. A time for new beginnings. A time to put your money where your swing is. A time to buy your golf game.

Yes, that’s right. I said it. It’s time to buy your game.

First though, you need to stop looking at all those new clubs. There is always great new technology coming out, but all the twisted faces in the world aren’t going to help your swing if you’re constantly shanking the ball 30 yards to the right.

You need to re-evaluate your game, not your bag.

Take Lessons

You’ve heard the horror stories: “I paid 50 bucks for the pro to sell me a $15 grip and to hit balls for 30 minutes.” Yes, that would be a waste of your hard earned money. Here are a few ways to help ensure you’re getting a good instructor.

  • Ask for recommendations from friends or members from your club
    • We all have different learning styles (visual, auditory, kinesthetic). Find an instructor that fits your style. A great instructor will be able to assess the way each student learns and adjust their style to your needs.
  • Cheap isn’t always bad and pricey isn’t always good
    • Don’t judge a lesson by its price. Some instructors may be great players, but can be awful teachers. Look for a highly recommended instructor.
  • Talk to the instructor before you take lessons
    • Once you’ve found a possible instructor, ask them any questions you have about how the lessons work. Let them know what you’re looking for, and see if that’s what they’re offering.
  • Try different instructors
    • Different instructors are going to have different strengths. Look until you find the right one for you. You’ll be more successful switching out instructors than you will be switching out clubs.

Practice

  • Practice between lessons
    • Take what you learn from your lessons and practice on the range. It’s just like learning a language or an instrument. If you don’t practice, you will not improve.
  • Hit more than just your driver at the range
    • You use your driver less than your putter during an average round. When you’re at the range, practice as if you’re playing a hole. Start with your driver then move to a wood or an iron. It’s a lot more realistic than swinging your driver 100 times and leaving the rest of your clubs cold in the bag.

Get Out and Play

It’s time to put your hard work to the test. Golf is just as much of a mental game as it is skill. Get out and play. It’s one thing to swing when there are no strokes on the line, but it’s another when you’ve got a steak dinner riding on your score.

 

The point of lessons and practice is for you to enjoy the sport you love even more. Get out and play. Take a half day every other week and play a round. Wake up early on the weekends and get out with your friends and family and have fun.

If you have any other tips or tricks on how you found a great instructor, please leave them down in the comments below.

Callaway Introduces new Rogue Models: Drivers, Woods, Hybrids, Irons

2017 proved to be an epic year for Callaway. The company saw its 2017 GBB Epic driver lead the field as one of the best reviewed and highest selling models of the year. For 2018, Callaway is going rogue, and taking some of the technology that worked so well in their last driver to their new fairway woods and hybrids.

The Callaway Rogue line will features three new drivers, two fairway woods, two hybrids, and four iron set models. All of the clubs fall under the Rogue name, but are built with unique designs for different players.

Rogue Drivers

The standard Rogue driver will be joined by the Rogue Sub Zero and the Rogue Draw. The standard Rogue will use “The Jailbreak Effect”, Callaway’s upgrade to the Jailbreak design. Lighter titanium bars connect the crown and the sole, giving the Rogue a thinner face with more flex than the Epic, while still delivering the same effect as the original. Other new features include a leading edge design for better aerodynamics, and an improved X-Face design to boost the variable face thickness. The Sub Zero is a low-spin version meant for Tour-level players. The Draw is a heel-weighted iteration built specifically to fight slices and create straighter ballflight. Both the Sub Zero and the Draw utilize the same Jailbreak and X-Face technology. All three versions are $499 at retail.

Rogue Fairway Woods and Hybrids

The most noticeable difference between the Epic and Rogue fairway woods and hybrids is the use of the Jailbreak technology. While the Epic limited the Jailbreak design to the drivers, the Rogue has implemented the technology into the fairway woods and hybrids too. The fairway woods come in the standard Rogue and the lower-spin Rogue Sub Zero model ($299 each). The hybrids are available in the standard Rogue and the more forgiving Rogue X ($249 each). The clubs all feature thin, Carpenter steel clubfaces and Face Cup designs.

Rogue Irons

Callaway will also release four different models of irons under the Rogue name. The standard Rogue irons, Rogue X irons, and Rogue women’s irons will all retail for $899 steel, $999 graphite, while the Rogue Pro irons will go for $999 steel. The standard Rogue is built as an option for a wide selection of players as a game-improvement iron. It includes the 360-cup face technology found on many of Callaway’s recent iron models. The Pro version features all of the same technology as the standard, but with a thinner topline and sole. The Rogue X includes the same technologies as the Rogue, but with features like stronger lofts, lighter weights, and a larger clubhead to maximize distance and enhance forgiveness. The women’s model is ultra-light weight and includes a large cavity to increase forgiveness.

Take a look at the different Rogue models:

All clubs are available for pre-order on January 19, 2018, and at retail on February 9.

New Ping G700 Irons Feature Hollow-body Design

Ping’s latest game-improvement iron finds similarities with recent Ping hybrid models. Unlike any of its predecessors, the Ping G700 features the first hollow-body for a set of irons in the history of the company. The successful design of the Ping Crossover hybrid acts as a direct influence for the G700 irons. The hollow-body is meant to push distance and forgiveness to the max. The thin face combines with body design to make the club perform more like a metalwood. Ping has always been known for their game-improvement irons. Now, the G700 model aims to take the next step in creating a forgiving design.

Take a look at the official description from Ping and images of the G700:

 In this game-improvement iron, PING engineers put a high priority on power and forgiveness by leveraging the advantages of a hollow-body design and a thin, maraging steel face, creating PING’s longest, highest-flying iron to date. All this comes with the added benefits of playability, tighter dispersion and enhanced sound in a slim, aesthetically pleasing shape.

 

The G700 irons are priced at $160 per club in steel or $175 per club in graphite, with 4-iron through sand wedge available. Pre-orders for the clubs are open now.

Love Stress and Wasting Time? Sell Your Clubs on eBay or Craigslist!

Save Time and Stress with Golf Club Brokers

I know what you’re thinking.

You have a set of clubs or maybe a driver that you need to sell but you’re not sure which route to take. You’ve considered posting it on eBay or Craigslist… though you know there’s always the risk of unreliable buyers or other bumps down those roads. Then, you had the idea of selling it to a friend, but your friends never seem to want what you have when you have it. And finally, you’ve reluctantly thought about pawning it outright to a company that buys and sells golf clubs.

A company like Golf Club Brokers.

But let’s be honest. When it comes right down to it, you’re going to make less money selling your clubs to Golf Club Brokers than you would if you listed it yourself.

So why choose Golf Club Brokers over selling your golf clubs on eBay or Craigslist? Because your time is worth it.

Let me explain exactly what I mean.

I’ve been selling on eBay for nearly two decades and if there’s one thing I know, it’s that eBay can be a complete pain in the neck.

I don’t need that stress and neither do you.

And just in case you think it really isn’t that big of a deal, consider the time it takes to sell on eBay:

  • Cleaning your clubs – no one wants to buy beat up, muddy clubs
  • Taking clear, well-lit photos
  • Slogging through the process of listing your item – writing a detailed description, creating a shipping/return policy, etc.
  • Waiting for your item to actually sell – all while the value drops

But that’s just to get your clubs out the door. What happens when your buyer messages you and says, “I just got your clubs but I’ve decided they aren’t right for me. I’d like a refund,” or “These clubs are nothing like what you advertised! I want my $%#@ money back!” or even better, he just leaves negative feedback with no explanation at all.

Then you have to wait for your returned clubs to get back to you and go through the whole process again.

Oh, and don’t forget those lovely eBay and Paypal fees.

So you start off thinking, I’ll make more money selling my golf clubs on eBay. But at the end of the day, is that extra $20 really worth all of the wasted time, stress, and frustration that you’ll have to deal with?

Surely there’s a better way.

“I’m with you,” you may be thinking, “I don’t like eBay either. But what about Craigslist? There’s a lot less red tape dealing with Craigslist.”

And you’d be right.

With Craigslist you don’t have to worry about fees or eBay’s selling policies. But it hardly saves you hassle or time. In fact, Craigslist may be more obnoxious than eBay.

Think about all of the issues you have to deal with when selling on Craigslist:

  • Waiting days, weeks, or even months for a buyer to actually bite – all while the value of your clubs slowly drop
  • Getting a message, only to respond and never hear from the person again
  • Waiting in the Wal-Mart parking lot until you finally decide that your ‘buyer’ isn’t much of a buyer after all
  • Meeting people you don’t know whose every move inevitably makes you uncomfortable
  • Finally selling your clubs but then getting a text or email a few days later asking for a refund

And that’s in addition to the time it takes you to clean your clubs, take pictures, and post your listing.

Selling your golf clubs on Craigslist is hardly better than selling them on eBay.

That is, if your time and stress levels matter to you.

But what are your other options?

May I recommend Golf Club Brokers?

Now, I know I’m biased. After all, I do work for Golf Club Brokers. But I’m going to be as objective and honest as possible here.

These are the issues you’ll have to deal with when selling your clubs on Golf Club Brokers: You won’t make quite as much money as you would on eBay or Craigslist.

But what would you save by selling to Golf Club Brokers?

  • SAVE TIME spent deep cleaning your clubs to prepare them for a photoshoot
  • SAVE TIME spent taking and uploading well-lit, properly framed pictures
  • SAVE TIME spent writing a description of your clubs
  • SAVE TIME spent waiting for someone to finally make the purchase
  • SAVE THE HASSLE of waiting for someone you don’t know to finally show up so you can sell your clubs
  • SAVE THE HASSLE of dealing with disgruntled buyers and negative feedback
  • SAVE THE HASSLE of eBay and Paypal fees

The reality is, with eBay or Craigslist, you’re going to end up spending hours trying to get your clubs sold and money in your pocket. With Golf Club Brokers, you won’t spend more than a few minutes.

Just choose your club from our convenient drop down menu, get an instant quote based on its condition, fill out a short contact form, print out your shipping label, and drop your club in the mail.

That’s it.

And within 24 hours of receiving your clubs, your money will be on its way into your wallet.

Your time is worth more than the handful of extra dollars you’d make trying to sell on eBay or Craigslist. Don’t shortchange yourself.

Golf Club Broker’s What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get Price Guarantee

When you sell your clubs to Golf Club Brokers, you can be confident that you will receive the exact amount that’s quoted on our website. We promise that what you see is what you get – no hidden fees or red tape. It really is as easy as filling out a form and dropping a box in the mail. And if you aren’t completely satisfied, we will ship your clubs back to you at absolutely no charge.

Save time and save stress: Sell your clubs with Golf Club Brokers.

TaylorMade M3 and M4 Clubs Revealed

TaylorMade has added a new twist to golf club technology. Today, the company revealed a first look at their M3 and M4 woods and irons. The biggest talking point? New Twist Face technology, which features driver faces with a twist in the low heel and high toe.

TaylorMade offers the Twist Face concept to combat the tendency for overcorrection and fairway misses when players make high toe or low heel hits. After conducting research on thousands of shots, TaylorMade found that the traditional bulge style face wasn’t meeting expectations. Adjustments to the faces on the M3 and M4 line are meant to correct this. You can read more about the Twist Face technology here.

Another step-forward for the M3 driver is found in the weight and track system. The M3 features a potential 13,000 setups between the adjustable weights and the adjustable hosel, which doubles the number possible in the 2017 M1. Similar improvements are made to the adjustability of the M3 fairway woods and hybrid.

Along with the new woods, TaylorMade announced the M3 and M4 irons. Adjustments to the irons include new technology called RIBCOR, a new support system inside the head that is meant to provide faster ballspeed across the entire face.

Take a look at the new M3 and M4 drivers, fairway woods, hybrids and irons:

All of the clubs will be available at retail on February 16.
