FIVE BIG MISTAKES

That’s the number golfers make when buying new clubs, according to Jeff Jackson, president of Dynacraftgolf.com. And the buying buggers are: wrong length (e.g. too long for a short guy — the longer the club, the tougher it is to get back to impact square), too stiff, not enough loft, buying what the pros play, and not being fitted. His solution? Purchase custom-fitted clubs; they’re less expensive than you’d think. Using state-of-the-art technology and your personal preferences, Jackson and his team can suggest the right lumber. www.dynacraftgolf.com or (800) 321-4833.
