Best Golf Clubs For Seniors

The game of golf has to be played differently as you age. You may not have the same power and/or flexibility that you used to have, so playing with clubs designed specifically for seniors is a must. If you are searching for “best golf clubs for seniors“, this is a list of some of the clubs to use at an advanced age.

Golf Clubs For Seniors

Here are five clubs/sets that are perfect for today’s seniors looking to hit the links:

  • TaylorMade SIM MAX Irons
  • Cobra Golf 2019 F9 Speedback Iron Set
  • Callaway Men’s XR OS Individual Iron
  • Wilson Ultra Plus Set
  • LAZRUS Premium Golf Irons

TaylorMade SIM MAX Irons

These irons offer a revolutionary Speed Bridge feature, which gives seniors the distance and forgiveness they need with each swing. The thinner clubface of the SIM MAX irons provides forgiveness on the player without impacting ball speed.

Cobra Golf 2019 F9 Speedback Iron Set

The Cobra Golf 2019 F9 Speedbacks are great clubs for distance. This set has a much larger than normal “sweet spot” for a better chance at a perfect hit. These are highly durable clubs. An additional benefit of these clubs is they are two years old, meaning you likely won’t have to pay top dollar for the set.

Callaway Men’s XR OS Individual Iron

If you want to purchase a single club rather than a full set, Callaway’s Men’s XR OS Individual Iron is just right for you! This is the perfect club for seniors seeking forgiveness without sacrificing ball speed or height. Even with the higher angle, this is a very effective club for long-distance situations.

Wilson Ultra Plus Set

The Wilson Ultra Plus Set is one of the most affordable sets on the market today. It’s perfect for the senior who is just begging to dip their toes into the world of golf. The lightweight stand bag is ideal for anyone who plans to walk the course or play a quick nine. A large sweet spot is in place for efficient practice and play.

LAZRUS Premium Golf Irons

The LAZRUS Premium Golf Irons work best for seniors with more strength and flexibility. These irons are heavier, requiring more strength, but that means the distance will be maximized with each swing. If you are struggling with any arthritis or joint issues, opt for a different set of irons.

Golf Stretches For Seniors

As you age, you’ll need to stretch before hitting the links to ensure maximum flexibility and performance. Here are a couple great stretches to try before your next round:

Hip Stretches

The hips are a crucial asset for golfers. Your hips need to be loose whenever you approach the tee. Make sure to stretch out in the morning before hitting the links.

  • Lie flat on your back with your knees in the air and feet planted on the ground.
  • Bend at the waste with your torso remaining on the floor.
  • Drop both knees to the left side and hold the pose for a good 10-15 seconds.
  • Return to the starting pose and repeat the exercise, this time to the right. You’ll notice the difference this stretch can make for your swing.

Back Exercises

Back pain, especially when it persists, can be extremely difficult for golfers to endure. Be sure to take care of this issue before heading out on the course. Try a specific back exercise called ‘bridges.’

  • This stretch requires you to lie on your back while bending the knees and keeping your feet flat on the ground.
  • Have your arms flat on ground.
  • Keep your feet shoulder width apart.
  • Keep your shoulders and hands flat on the ground while raising your hips.
  • The hips should form a perfect, straight line from your knees all the way to your head.
  • Lower yourself back down to the ground, slowly.
  • Repeat this motion at least 8-10 times total.
