5 Signs that it is time to buy new golf clubs.

Worn out groves on your irons are a telltale sign to look for with your irons.

When is it time?

It would be quite an expensive endeavor to buy new clubs every time new (and “better”) equipment hits the market. You’d also only see marginal gains from your equipment year-over-year, so it may not be the best use of your money. On the flip side, however, if you let years and decades pass without upgrading equipment, you’re undoubtedly missing out on improved technology that could help your scores.

So, when is the right time to switch to new equipment?

Even outdated equipment will affect you distance and accuracy!

The absolute best way to know for sure is to consult with a professional fitting expert to evaluate your current setup. I can’t recommend this enough. Still, I understand that many golfers won’t go through the complete process, for varying reasons, which is why, for this article, I’ve enlisted the help of David McKee, the production manager at GOLF.com’s sister company True Spec Golf. He’s a longtime expert in the field of club building and fitting. Together, we’ve compiled 5 telltale signs that it’s time for an equipment upgrade.

Do your drives barely get off the ground, with more of a line-drive flight than a towering moon shot? Are your irons hitting the greens and bounding over the back?

If this is the case, you’re giving up distance and distance control. Penetrating ball flights can be helpful in super windy conditions, but hitting the ball too low can be detrimental in the long run. Every year, new technologies hit the market that help golfers hit the ball higher. If you’re a golfer who hits the ball too low, and you’re playing with older golf equipment, it’s likely that new equipment can be a game-changer. By launching the ball higher into the air, you could gain distance off the tee and control with your irons.
