At GolfMagic, we're constantly being sent the latest equipment golf has to offer, from drivers all the way down to putters, we've tested it all. So no, we might not be winning PGA Tour events with these clubs, but we thought you might be interested to see what clubs have made it into our bags. Check out our YouTube video below and see for yourself.
There's been some fantastic innovative driver technology out this year and we've been extremely impressed with all the latest big sticks in 2019. The new injected twist face technology from TaylorMade was something that GolfMagic found very exciting and when we tested both the M5 and the M6, they certainly didn't disappoint, in fact, no driver has been longer than the M5 for us this year. The TaylorMade M6 has been in Max's bag for a while now, it offers incredible distance that, combined with the low spin and high launch the M6 offers, it's an absolute weapon for Max off the tee.
The Cobra KING F9 Speedback driver is easily one of, if not the most impressive drivers to be launched this year. Jack instantly put this in the bag and hasn't looked back since. It offers extremely high ball speeds, a consistent trajectory, phenomenal sound and it goes a very long way. It was the fastest selling driver in the first half of 2019 and if you're in the market for a new driver, make sure you give this a go.
Now as mentioned in the video, if you get on with a certain driver then there's a high chance you'll get on well with the fairway wood as well, but that's not always the case. There have been some top fairway woods launched this year, a few to mention that didn't quite make it into our bags is the likes of the PING G410 and the Callaway Epic Flash, which both offer a lot of distance and the G410 is extremely forgiving.
When it comes to irons, there is a wide range of top quality clubs to choose from, so it comes down to what you're looking to get out of your irons. Do you want forgiveness? Are you in the players category looking for forged irons? Or are you a first-class iron player, looking to utilise shot shaping with a stunning set of blades? Make sure you know what you're looking for in an iron and get yourself custom fitted for a set as it makes such a big difference.
Wedges are all about feel, if you have a good feel with your wedges then you're going to be able to work and control them a lot better. Make sure your wedges feel comfortable and you have the correct shaft in there. You need confidence when you're standing over the ball around the greens. Without confidence, you're going to find yourself chunking and thinning the ball a lot, so find wedges that feel good in your hands. The new PING Glide 3.0 wedges really wowed GolfMagic this year, with the high spin and excellent feel, plus they are available in four different sole options, meaning you can tailor them to your game.
Your putter is typically the least changed club in the bag, many players will carry the same putter in the bag for 10+ years and that's fine. If you love your putter and it's still in good condition then understandably, you're unlikely to change it, but there are some brilliant putters on the market this year with new technology that can really make a difference to your putting. The Odyssey Stroke Lab putters feature the new Stroke Lab Technology which GolfMagic found can really improve your putting stroke.
