Physics can only be stretched so far. Which is why, when it comes to staying within the Rules of Golf, club designers are starting to bump their heads against the laws of the universe. So last year’s trend—self-fitting—continues in this year’s Colorado AvidGolfer Buyer’s Guide.
Data is the force behind this ongoing movement. Golfers now have access to more information on their personal game, and they don’t have to go to a fitting center to get it. It’s one thing to find the optimum interior weighting of the latest drivers; it’s quite another to employ software programs or GPS devices linked to motion detectors to track swing tempo, clubhead speed, face angle, launch angle and more.
Technology is providing us with more insight into the game. But don’t be put off. Like titanium drivers of old, it is a trend meant to make the game more enjoyable.
Take a look at each section below for this year's hottest products!
