Golf is always changing and one of the biggest changes and developments we see year upon year is the manufacturing of new golf clubs.
Many golf clubs will stick in the memory of many golfers. One club is able to change your fortunes and enhance your game. This is why Alex from GolfMagic wanted to review the top five best clubs of all time.
At number five is the Titleist Vokey wedge, the wedge that is arguably the benchmark for all of the short clubs. It was first seen on the PGA Tour in 1997 and now we have reached the SM9 model in 2022.
The classic design of the Vokey wedge has always been clear despite manufacturing techniques changing down the years. The forged feel and tour feedback makes the first Titleist Vokey wedge one for the ages.
We have the TaylorMade R7 driver in at number four. The R7 driver appeared on the scene in 2004 and changed the game of the metal woods that we see today.
This driver featured moveable weight technology (MWT) which is now a technique that is seen in so many drivers and woods in the present day. The R7 460 became the first 460cc driver to contain moveable weight technology in 2006.
At number three is the PING Eye 2 irons. They were a masterpiece of their time but they could be frowned upon now due to their shelf appeal. They were released in 1982 with a V-shape groove and between 1984 and 1985, they became a U-shape groove. In 1986, they turned into a box groove.
The Callaway Big Bertha is in at number two and this is one of the most recognised names in the game. It was a staple of the Callaway Golf line up which has been so successful.
The first driver was introduced in 1991 and the name was coined from a German WW1 howitzer, nicknamed Big Bertha, because of its huge size and power.

The stainless steel construction and large appearance made this club fly off the shelves at a time when the majority of players still used wooden drivers.
At number one, we have another PING club and it is the classic PING Anser putter. It was first released in 1966 and it defined the way that putters are created now.
This putter was designed by Karsten Solheim and it was the first of its kind with an offset hosel that provided golfers with a clear view of the face.
The cavity-back putter featured a low centre of gravity and lines parallel to the face which allowed golfers to square the club up to the ball.
