Golf Iron Brands Compared – Which one’s the best for a beginner?

A lot of beginner golfers are confused about golf brands. They don’t know which ones are worth their trust and money. With this post, i’ll be comparing Three Golf Brands  – Nike, Mizuno and Cobra. All of these are one of, if not the top manufacturers of golf irons in America. So by comparing them, i hope i can help you choose best irons for beginners in 2017. Let’s start with Nike :

When it comes to golf shoes or any other golf accessory – i always choose Nike. And even though they had Tiger Woods using their clubs, i have never considered buying Nike golf clubs before. But that has all changed now. I have gotten Nike irons as a present from my son few days ago, and i must say that these are the best golf irons i’ve ever used. People say Nike’s drivers are great as well, so i think i might consider buying from them in the future.

It’s winter, which is my least favorite season for playing golf outside, but i still wanted to try my new Nike irons out. Turns out, they’re amazing and my results are proof of that claim. These game improvement irons are just what i’ve been looking to buy for years. I’ve had high golf handicap and all golf clubs used to disappoint me. But if you are low handicapper, i can’t guarantee that they will work for you.

It was really generous of my son to give me these for christmas, since these have been released very recently, therefore they cost a lot.  But i can’t say it’s not worth it. New improved design and forgiveness just tops any other iron i’ve ever used.


Now let’s move on to Cobra. I’ve had experience with their irons before, when i had left my clubs at home and my friend gave me her Cobra irons as a temporary replacement. Baffler golf iron set, which i had used, is one of the best iron sets for women. Cobra decided to add hybrids to the set, and removed few of the long irons from the set. One could argue that hybrid – iron combo is better, but in my opinion, there is no big difference, except for price of newest golf clubs, which cost like two times as much as the previous model. But it’s worth noting that their design is also somewhat updated, so it’s still promising and worth trying out.


And last, but my favorite golf iron brand – Mizuno. As far as i know, Mizuno specializes in making the best game improvement irons on market, but their products are not always beginner friendly. Mizuno’s main customers are experienced golfers who need the best irons they can get their hands on. But they had made exception and made Mizuno JPX 850 which seems like very beginner friendly for me. Still, it might not be the best iron set for beginners, but it’s a decent set with reasonable price, which is why i considered it to be worth mentioning in this tutorial. Today i didn’t have chance to review and compare other great golf iron manufacturers such as Callaway or TaylorMade, but i will say that both are very good golf club brands that deserve at least honorable mention.

best driver for beginners – how to pick one

Golf drivers and generally, golf clubs are changing at fastest speeds now more than ever. Newest technologies are introduced every year, and major golf companies are constantly tweaking and improving golf club designs to meet their customers’ demands. But all this come with the price, and you might wonder – is it worth it? should beginners pay hundreds of dollars for latest golf clubs, or buy something cheaper and few years older?

I’ve even heard some people saying that the days when driver was most important golf club in your club set is long gone. They say that today, irons and woods are the ones that matter. But i don’t agree, and neither do most golfers i know. Even though golf club designs have greatly improved over the course of last few years, i think drivers are more important than ever, and i’m going to argue why.

As stated before, golf club companies release all these new golf clubs with tweaks in golf club head design, but i don’t think it’s really necessary to buy latest release golf driver. First, it’s expensive, and second, unless you’re a professional golfer, you don’t need to spend hundreds on golf club that is pretty much the same as the one from year ago, but costs twice as much.

Because of countless golf club releases, it’s become hard for starter golfers to choose best driver for beginners. They are confused about swing, handicap and all these golf terms, and sometimes they make mistake that costs them hundreds of dollars. They buy a golf driver that is too advanced for their level and they end up not being able to use it. Thing is, there are specific golf drivers made for beginners, and therefore, you should do your research first before buying any club.
You can’t just buy the most expensive golf driver and assume that it will be the best for you. If you do, you’ll end up wasting a lot of money. In the golf world, high price isn’t the same as high quality.

I can’t exactly tell you which are the best drivers for beginners, and especially for personally you, because i don’t know what your height, handicap or golf swing is. And choosing the best driver depends on all of those characteristics. I recommend asking someone experienced in golf to help you choose driver for yourself, or just browse Amazon and read what other customers have to say about the driver, and how does their characteristics compare to yours.

It also depends whether you are a junior, woman, older person or a man. There are custom golf clubs made for kids who are just starting to play golf, and same goes for women and seniors. Men also need to make sure that their height complies with the driver’s length. Don’t trust sales people in golf stores though – they will try to make you spend as much as possible. Take someone you know and trust, and is experienced in golf, to retail store with you to help you pick best golf driver for beginners.

Golf Clubs for Female Golfers

Golf is very amusing and entertaining sport, but it has one big disadvantage. And that disadvantage is that golf clubs and other golf gear are very expensive. If you want to get started and start playing golf, you might as well be prepared to pay nearly thousand dollars for all sorts of different golf products you’ll need. Picking right products gets even harder when you’re a woman, because there are so many products and not enough information. I have a lot of lady friends who tried to look it up on internet, but failed. So they usually come to me to ask for advice. I’m glad to help potential future golfers with their problems, but I thought it’d be more handy if I had a post written down about this matter. So that’s why I’m taking my time to write this guide to help you choose best golf clubs for women.

So, where do you start? Let’s talk about few minor issues first. For example, I’ve seen a lot of ladies make this mistake – they choose womens golf club set that they like the most, but it turns out it doesn’t fit their height. And even worse, instead of instantly returning it, they keep it and continue playing golf with golf clubs that are too long or short for them. I mentioned above that women usually go for golf club sets instead of individual golf clubs, which I think is good decision. There are a lot of reasons, but few are most important – their price. Even though these sets don’t consist of best womens golf clubs, you can still get very decent golf clubs for very fair price. Plus, you also get decent bag and other minor accessories with it, which are always necessary. So you basically get great package for affordable price, which is exactly what most people are looking for. On the other hand, if you’re a woman looking for best golf clubs you can find, there are few options that might interest you. Although, I must warn you that they’re not best choice for the money. Some golf club brands like Callaway and Wilson also have luxury golf club sets for women, which cost nearly thousand dollars. But quality is really high, and clubs are one of the finest you can find on market. It’s up to you, but I’m sure that buying golf club package is the way to go. It saves money and you have to spend less time on research.

So which products exactly do I recommend? There are a lot of good womens golf club sets out there, especially for people with unlimited budget. But I can recommend 5 best golf clubs for women listed in that article, because they’re proven and seem to perform very well. You can also choose by yourself, but that’s quite a lot of work. You can take a look and find out which womens golf clubs are rated the best and get one of those best rated products. You also need to take a look at few reviews and comparisons to decide.
