What Should I Upgrade First In My Golf Bag? The putter is the most important club in the golf gag, so it should be upgraded first, followed by the driver.

What golf clubs should I replace first?
Generally speaking, wedges and your golf driver will be the first to go from a set of golf clubs. For instance, wedges need to be replaced because the grooves will wear out, and drivers can lose impact if you hit them frequently on the range and course.
Generally for club golfers changing your irons every year is going to be overkill and looking at new options every three to four years is a better time frame. The research says you can get a good 300 rounds out of irons before you need to start looking at replacements.
Are 30 year old golf clubs still good?
There is no evidence that golf clubs deteriorate over time. Well maintained clubs will last a lifetime. 10+ year old clubs should be checked for better options but clubs less than 5 years old do not need replacing except for wear and tear issues to which wedges and forged irons are most vulnerable.
Are 15 year old irons too old?
If your clubs are 15 years old, then it’s time for new clubs. Just make sure they’re good ones. Don’t buy something from Walmart. Go to a golf store and consult their club fitter.

Do new golf clubs make a difference?
Do new golf irons make a difference? Opting to buy a new set of golf irons will certainly impact your game positively. They will feel better in your hands and the fact that you’ve just bought a new set of irons will give your game a new life.
Do golf irons wear out?
Golf irons will wear out over time. For an average golfer that plays golf a few times or practices a few times a week, you should get a good 7-10 years out of a set of irons. After this period, you may notice that in addition to the grooves being worn out, the ball doesn’t travel as far as it used to.
How long should your irons be?
With your middle irons, the toe of the club should be slightly raised, about 1/2 to a 1/4 of an inch. With longer hitting irons (2, 3, 4) the club head will rest completely on the ground, while with your others (8, 9, PW) the toe will be more elevated.
When should I upgrade my iron set?
It takes a lot to bust a club, and there are plenty of people playing irons that are 10 years old. So it’s not like they’re about to disintegrate in your hands at impact. But fact is if you’re not swapping out your irons at least every five years you’re leaving a fair amount of improvement on the table.
How often should you change golf driver?
Keep in mind that 3 to 5 years of use is a general guideline and differs for all golfers. If you play 30 to 40 rounds per year then based on normal wear and tear you should consider getting a new driver every 5 years. If you play less than that, then you could wait for 5 to 7 years.
Will a new driver add distance?
Distance. Newer drivers have newer technology that helps give golfers more distance but it depends on the year it was made in terms of drastic differences in length. A 20 year-old driver will have less distance than a new driver. Ball speed and driver faces are two factors that have changed over time.
