We're just coming into the peak golf club purchasing period in the northern half of the United States. A lot you may be trolling the aisles of new clubs in the next few months looking for a few extra yards or a few less strokes per round.
I know… the economy sucks. The TV keeps reminding me every evening. But I also know that I'll probably still be trying out some new gear this summer. After all, someone has to kick start the economy (maybe a new driver purchase will get the Dow above 8K again). As long as I'm working, I'll likely be playing golf. And if I'm playing golf, then all those new toys in the golf shop will be kind of tempting. And I bet I'm not alone.
Now I've purchased quite a few new clubs in recent years looking for a few more yards or a tighter shot dispersion (I know, I know… it's not the arrow). Sometimes I've found a little more game. Sometimes I haven't. Here are a few questions that might help you find the right equipment for you, and maybe save a little money along the way, too.
