When it comes to picking our golf clubs we look to not only the best golf club brands, but also to our favorite pro golfers. If these guys are doing well or winning with a particular brand of golf clubs we naturally think the same would apply to us. And we’re not wrong, because the innovations and technology advances that are made on the pro circuit filter down into the clubs that come to the market.
The following selection of the best golf club brands should be no surprise to you as they have all been around for a very long time, are steeped in heritage, have contributed much to the sport and continue to improve the game.
Let’s take a look shall we?
Best Golf Club Brands
Callaway, as it became officially known in 1988, is best known for its Big Bertha Driver. “Big Bertha” has been so successful that Callaway now produces a whole range of clubs carrying the designation. Every year this great tradition is carried on. The CALLAWAY BIG BERTHA FUSION has incorporated a lot more carbon fiber composites. Technologically that sets it apart from the competition.
With pros like Phil Mickelson, Henrik Stensen, and Jim Furyk using Callaway, you’ll be in esteemed company.
Starting from humble beginnings out of a garage PING has grown into a household name (in golfing homes that is). The company’s original “PING 1A” putter made waves in the golfing world back in the late ‘50s. You will inevitably see many old, trusty Ping putters still in the hands of low to mid handicap players.
With their latest sets of irons they have redesigned each club individually leading to unmatched precision for every distance. Their colored dot fitting system helps all golfers to have the perfectly fitted club to their height and arm length.
Pros using PING includes Bubba Watson, Lee Westwood, and Aaron Baddeley.
The largest golf equipment company in the world certainly needs no introductions. They changed the game with their metal driver in 1979 and have not looked back. They claim the spot for the #1 Driver brand on Tour, with so many players using the M1 or M2. The M1/M2 designation is also carried by their game improvement irons.
The likes of Jason Day, Justin Rose, and Dustin Johnson are contracted to TaylorMade.
Founded in 1932, Titleist is perhaps best known for its golf balls. However, the company also produces and outstanding range of golf clubs with players such as Adam Scott, Steve Stricker, and Bill Haas under contract. Before moving to Nike, Tiger Woods was also contracted to Titleist; in fact Woods used a Titleist putter until the British Open in 2010.
The latest edition to their stable is the TITLEIST 917 D2/D3 driver. Golf Digest gave it the gold in their recent 2017 Hot List.
In the golf club department what really stands out is their range of Vokey Design Wedges by Master Craftsman, Bob Vokey. Their latest addition, the TITLEIST VOKEY DESIGN SM7 is a full update and does not disappoint.
Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas, and Adam Scott all use Titleist.
Sadly Nike decided to stop producing hard equipment and only focus on soft goods or apparel. Nike has produced equipment for just about every sport imaginable, and it’s not just footwear. Their range of golf related products was of the same high standards and excellent levels of performance as everything else they do. Players like Tiger Woods and Rory Mcllroy used Nike on tour.
Their recent lines of hybrids, the VR_S Covert 2.0, Vapor Fly/Speed/Flex and their recent fairway woods, the Covert Tour 2.0, Vapor Fly/Speed catered to both golfers needing a low loft or a high loft. According to Nike’s website the, “New design shifts the body closer to the ground, reducing CG and spin for flatter, farther shots.” and it certainly delivered on this in spades. If you are in the market for used golf clubs, do not overlook Nike as an option.
Who can forget the iconic Nike swoosh and Tiger teaming up for this:
You can’t go wrong with any of these as they certainly all fit the bill of the world’s best golf club brands. It’s simply a matter of personal choice and finding the right fit for your playing style and level. You may even end up with a mix of brands, a driver from one, a set of irons form another and then you find your perfect putter made by yet another brand.
All these brands have demonstrated that their clubs, new and old, will stand the test of time. Throughout the years they have developed cutting edge technology, and pushed each other for top spot year after year.
New prices can carry some sticker shock, so if you are new to the game of golf and want to shop the used golf clubs market, there are many choices of clubs produced by the brands listed above that are a great value for the price.
