If you have been reading my reviews, no list doesn’t include something from Taylormade. Established in 2018, the brand has been coming up with innovative stuff ever since it’s inception and continues to dominate the golf arena with its technologically advanced and feature-packed golf clubs that appeal to golfers at every level.
Although the list of Taylormade’s contributions to changing the golf’s face is pretty long, the most recent innovation they introduced in their clubs is the “Twist face technology” in their “M” line up, which has even been refined with the introduction of the latest Golf clubs like Taylormade SIM Max.
It not only increases the forgiveness by a considerable amount but also provides plenty of sweet spot for low and high handicappers.
No matter which angle you look at it from, Taylormade remains among the best golf club brands to have ever entered the sport. No wonder why players like Tiger Woods and Rickie fowler consistently continue to play with Taylormade clubs!
Best Club: Taylormade SIM Max
One of the best golf irons ever produced Taylormade, they have literally thrown every card at the table with the introduction of this one. From technologies to game-improving features and everything in between, there’s nothing these irons lack, that too with a notoriously reasonable price; one of the reasons for its success.
To define this club in a nutshell, let’s just give you a brief overview of its features with their main function. So, there’s speed bridge technology that literally provides explosive distance with tons of forgiveness. Moreover, the Taylormade’s exclusive ECHO damping system and speed pockets will ensure zero vibrations and maximum face flexibility that results in piercing flight at low trajectories.
The ultra-thin face combined with Progressive Inverted Cone Technology makes sure that you get the maximum sweet spot and generate relatively more draw bias in the long irons. All in all, a highly functional piece of a golf club that counts itself among some of the notable irons in modern-day golf. You are going to love it!
Well, who doesn’t know Callaway? One of the most prominent golf manufacturers that go on par with brands like Taylormade, or have even been sharing the top position with them, there’s nothing bad I know about them, except for the fact that their clubs mostly fall in the high-budget category.
Be it the best golf clubs, best golf irons, or best wedges, there’s nothing that this brand has forgotten in their long lines of pure greatness.
Founded back in 1982, the company has continued to fill up their golf clubs with innovation with every addition they have made to the market. Not to forget, it’s the world’s biggest manufacturer of golf clubs. Also, Callaway has been manufacturing putters under the title of “Odyssey”, which has remained one of their most successful products throughout the company’s years of existence.
Best Club: Callaway Apex Pro 19 Irons
If we were to mention something that fulfills every bit of perfection regarding a golf club, that would be nothing other than the Callaway Apex Pro 19 Iron set. It’s consistent, it has got a great feel, and it dampens down every bit of vibration to ensure a premium experience. Thanks to the urethane microspheres.
In addition to that, every club included in the set has tungsten infused heads. This aids to give you maximum speed and distance while having very little effect on the flexibility of the irons. Moreover, with optimal flex, you will have much more control over your shots, benefitting you a lot as a handicapper. The weight is distributed in a way that the impact remains maximum throughout the clubface, ultimately resulting in high consistency.
In simple words, it’s a high-class PGA Tour standard club with every bit of greatness you can name. Highly recommended by professionals, it’s a gift for the price!
When Karstein designed his first PING putter in the 50s, little did he know that this name would later become a brand and be counted among the rulers of the industry? Trust me, this brand is to golf as Apple is to tech.
Founding its origins in pure innovations, the company was founded when the founder moved from his “garage” to Arizona, United States, and ever since then, it has only seen its rise. One of the best golf club brands on the current scene, PING is one of the oldest golf brands on the list that has kept its repute throughout its lifetime.
The company mainly gained its popularity from its innovative putters that broke the conventional norms of the time and became immensely popular among golfers of the time. Due to the increasing demand, the one-man garage workhouse later converted into a full-fledged company exporting high-quality golf equipment.
Today, the brand still maintains its legacy and continues to manufacture premium golfing stuff for golfers of every level and budget. The good thing is, the majority of PING clubs are unisex, therefore both gents and ladies will be able to take full advantage of them.
Best club: PING Blueprint Irons
One of the PING’s most aesthetically pleasing iron sets, the Golf Blueprint Irons are also counted as the best ball strikers produced by PING to this date. They exhibit a blade design that ensures less offset while providing relatively more control when it comes to the ball’s speed and distance. In other words, your overall game will remain highly consistent throughout your rounds.
Additionally, there’s the machined Tungsten toe screw weight and an internal heel weight that allows for precise swing speed. The hydropearl finish will make sure there’s minimum glare on sunny days. However, what’s important to mention here is that these irons have a very small sweet spot, but the good thing is, the control provided is so good that you will quickly get used to it and won’t miss a shot.
All in all, these irons are highly recommended for pros who want to make their performance elevate a little more.
Well, most of you must have heard this name associated specifically with golf balls, the brand has been leveling up its club game in the recent past and has put in the same innovative engineering in the irons as well, that was just known to their balls.
The brand has been winning back to back awards in Gold categories for best golf irons, best drivers, and best game improvement irons.
Moreover, their putters are also considered among the best available right now. And guess what, even the name signifies the brand’s greatness, which is derived from “Titleholder”. It is because of the initial success of V1 balls, that has won major championships for every player that tried it at the time of its release.
Titleist continues to refine its balls and clubs over time and has been adding innovations to the products being launched under the company’s name. Although most professional players use Titleist balls, the clubs are also quite popular among amateurs and handicappers.
Best club: Titleist 718 AP2 Irons
Keeping the company’s legacy alive, the Titleist AP2 is one of irons that is equipped with every latest bells and whistles you can name, with tremendously good game-improvement features. Moreover, when combined with its charming looks will make you love it at first sight.
The thing that I loved the most about these irons is the extremely forgiving nature that allows the handicappers to take full advantage of it, as much as the accuracy is concerned. Furthermore, the even weight distribution throughout the clubface helps to maintain consistent distance and great control, which will even improve your game.
Besides, the center of gravity varies from club to club in each iron, so expect a center of gravity on the lower side of the clubface in long irons, while in short irons, it is kept higher, ensuring ultimate consistency throughout the game.
In terms of construction, you get a steel face inserted in the longer irons e.g 6. From iron No. 7 to pitching wedge, the club comprises carbon-steel face body for extra power and forgiveness, while tungsten in the toe in longer irons for higher launch impact. Greatly benefiting for handicappers, as mentioned before.
All, in a nutshell, it’s just what you would expect from one of the best golf club brands in the current times. It’s balanced in terms of design, it has tremendous consistency and a hell of a lot of forgiveness for newbies. I would highly recommend it if you’re just starting!
Founded in the same year as Taylormade, Cleveland has introduced some classics to the golf world. Although the brand has been introducing quality products since its inception, it got a breakthrough when their 588 club set became a major success. The set still counted among the best-selling clubs of all time. Cleveland continues to maintain its position as one of the best golf wedges manufacturers to date with its exceptional design and functional features.
Their wedges have been winning back to back multiple Gold category awards in the golf digest as per my research. And most of all, they are regarded as “the best” as per the user’s choice!
Best Club: Cleveland Launcher HB Turbo Iron
The absolute best from Cleveland in terms of price to performance ratio, Cleveland Launcher HB Turb Irons set is something that every mid to high-handicapper should own without question, especially if they are running on a budget.
The club set offers exceptionally good performance with a turbo-charged Cop face that offers extremely high speed and distance. Moreover, aerodynamics is just on the spot that gives it an edge over the competitors.
Moreover, with the Cleveland exclusive HiBore crown, you are getting a lower center of gravity that will ensure good swing speed along with the highest impact transfer. You can also remove mass from the poor positions to increase the club’s functionality.
All in all, you get a lightweight, aerodynamic set of irons that will improve every bit of your game.
While talking of the best, it’s difficult to miss out on this Japanese giant. One of the most prominent golf manufacturers throughout golf’s history, it’s hard to find any great golf player who hasn’t held a Mizuno club at least once in their career.
Mizuno, unlike other big giants including Callaway and Taylormade, focuses on every type of player, irrespective of their budget. You will find everything from most expensive to the cheapest and anything in between under the company’s title.
The company was started in 1906 by two brothers, and takes its name from one of them. In the very beginning, they were specific to baseball equipment and other tidbits of sportswear. However, it skyrocketed after it introduced the first golf club in 1933 and had the biggest club showroom in the world by 1935.
Mizuno has been sponsoring some great players in the past and has proved to be a title winner for many. In addition to that, The modern-day GOAT, Tiger woods also made his career debut with the Mizuno irons in the bag. That was before when he moved to Titleist due to its increasing popularity in1996.
All in all, the brand continues to prove its worth in every sector of golf, and benefits every type of golfer. However, we see it a bit more prominent in terms of professional games. As for amateurs, just don’t miss the sweet spot!
Best Club: Mizuno JPX919 Tour Iron set
If you have been carrying out a bit of research on golf equipment, I’m quite sure you must have come across this name quite a few times because of its low price, high functionality, and it’s great feel that fully complements the famous golf saying “Nothing feels like Mizuno”.
It’s a perfectly shaped, and functional set of irons that stands as a set for everyone. The features included are within the legal limits of golf, thus amateurs and professionals both can take full advantage of its extreme forgiveness and amazing speed. Not to mention the exceptional technologies being put in each iron.
The club set features a lower center of gravity that is positioned right at the toe of the clubhead, while the undercut cavity when combined with it gives you an optimized swing speed with great impact transfer, that too with a solid-yet-soothing sound.
Although they are relatively longer than the traditional irons we often get to see, that only makes them better. You get more MOI, which means more force and relatively more distance coverage. You are going to fall in love with how it is going to level up your game even on a budget.
Ever since its inception, Cobra has remained prominent for its top-tier performance-enhancing clubs. They are light, they feel great, and they produce the largest distance compared to any cub. The main notion behind the formation of the brand was to provide golf clubs that can level up the average player on the course.
Although this seemed like a business strategy in the beginning, as at the time the game-improving irons had witnessed their overall peak sales in history, the strategy worked in the company’s favor and quickly got popularity among amateur golfers. Moreover, as they were the first to introduce graphite shafts, even women ranked it their top choice due to their lighter weight.
As for now, Cobra remains one of the biggest brands in the golf market and manufactures a vast amount of clubs every year, each equipped with pure innovative technological advancements, and continues to sponsor some thriving players entering the arena. Moreover, they even leave Mizuno behind when it comes to the overall feel of the club. Not to mention the affordable prices, which makes the name an overall User’s choice!
Best Club: Cobra King F8 Driver
The Cobra King F8 Driver is one of the thinnest, smartest, and fastest golf clubs the game has ever seen. It is one of those irons that don’t seem to compromise on anything, from basics to advanced, and advanced to ultra-advanced Now I might seem like exaggerating things but you just can’t get over something like that.
The club introduces the first-ever CNC milled Titanium Driver face with the Cobra’s exclusive E9 technology. That too when combined with the 360 Aero Technology makes an iron that, besides being the “everything I just mentioned above”, also makes it the most precise golf driver on the market. Not to mention the tremendous amount of forgiveness one gets from it.
Talking of the overall design, it’s an aesthetically pleasing golf driver that will immediately catch the eye of everyone. Adding to that, it’s highly beneficial to those suffering from mid to low swing speed.
All in all, the club is the epitome of performance and technological advancements that exhibits every trait of being a great golf driver, fully portraying the Mastercraft of Cobra on the course. A truly groundbreaking addition to the Cobra’s lineup, it counts itself among the best golf drivers of all time.
And oh! You can track your performance by connecting your smartphone to it. Isn’t it awesome?
To anyone playing sports, Wilson seems like a household name. Apart from holding its reputation for being one of the most world-known brands in tennis, Wilson also produces some good quality golf equipment as well under the title of Wilson staff, Pro Staff, and Ultra staff. The quality and price both increase as we transition towards “ultra” than just the “staff”.
Several great names have nourished under the titled sponsorship of this company including Arnold Palmer, and Ben Crenshaw. Wilson has been trying its luck in different golf equipment categories including drivers and putters and has been quite successful in their attempts. The brand has been winning several Golf-digest awards in the gold category for the game-improvement and super game-improvement irons.
Best Club: Wilson Staff D9 Driver
A performance Marvel formed with the help of pure artificial intelligence, Wilson Staff D9 Driver can be something of your dreams. Although the price seems to be quite steep for an average golfer, this is a straight go-for if you have got the money.
Talking of what makes it the best, the first thing we immediately get our eyes on is the precision being put in the formation of the clubhead. It’s designed after comparing the data of hundreds of clubheads’ performance and then selecting the best one among them. The club mainly emphasizes distance, therefore, providing forgiveness more than any of its predecessors in the line.
To describe it in a nutshell, it’s simply the result of Wilson throwing every card on the table. It’s lightweight, it’s relatively shorter but has great aerodynamics and it’s extremely thing with plenty of speed for handicappers. Not to mention, its lightweight haft which makes it suitable for even seniors.
It’s a true Super-game improvement iron that every amateur golfer should try.
When it’s owned by Taylormade, you know it’s great. Not long ago, the brand has been keeping itself relevant, or perhaps a part of the golf headlines with its “Tight lies” fairway woods, which has gained it quite a giant-like reputation in the specific area.
Well, although the brand hasn’t released any new stuff after being owned by Taylormade, it’s fairway woods still maintains its name as the all-time best we have ever seen in golf.
To be frank, Taylormade buying it seems to me like a good strategy to remove them from its way, since it was turning out to be a potential threat for their club market. Just the same Apple did to Beats!
But who cares, you still are getting an extreme quality fairway wood! That’s the only thing we should be concerned about. ;).
Best Club: Adam Tight Lies
Due to the exceptional performance on the course, Adam Tight Lies holds a legendary reputation among golfers even after 8 years of its introduction. The technologies included in this club were so ahead of their time that even pro golfers don’t complete their bag without including one of these in their bag.
The club offers a considerable sweet spot, that when combined with the ghost slot technology makes a clubhead that is the kind in terms of forgiveness. Moreover, the Tri-level sole ensures to minimize the turf interaction and elevate the “feel” by a huge margin.
One of the absolute, super-sonic ultra pro “sell your kidney” types of fairway wood you will ever find.
10. Robin Golf
A relatively new competitor in the Arena, Robin Golf is already setting up standards for the giants. Due to their new entry into the industry, the company is trying out everything to attract the golfer. Their marketing strategy includes bang for the buck prices, Super-game improvement irons production, and finally, a reliable return policy to attract every amateur.
And to be quite frank and honest, this strategy seems like a good deal for those just starting their game. Like, imagine getting something for $600 that will give you the performance of a premium Iron that is probably going to cost you around $1000! Isn’t it great?
On top of that, the company simply tells you in thor 90-day return policy that well bro…If you don’t like our stuff, just return it to us, and we will try our level best to give you something even improved. Trust me, if not for the small brand name, the things they provide to golfers wouldn’t come any cheaper than something from Taylormade or Callaway!
Best Club: Robin Golf Beginners Club
Well, there isn’t something from the brand that has been making headlines lately, but make sure to visit their official website. You are probably going to find something of your interest!
Each selection here is based upon pure research, with every brand having its approach towards making the best for every type of golfer.
