Thoughts on Tommy Armour clubs? Pretty competitively priced and wondering is quality is on par with main manufacturers but just taking a "non-premium brand" haircut

Quality isn’t the same as the main players.

I’d buy a slightly used set of Titleist/Callaway/Taylormade on eBay before buying new Tommy Armour


Good point, I buy all my stuff used on


Hogans are pretty nice too!


I have a set of classic Hogans from about 1950. Waiting for a golf collector to make me an offer. lol


Never tried em. But I do know that they don't pay a ton of golfers millions of dollars to endorse, so maybe thats why they can be on the less expensive side?


Played a tommy armour 7 wood for years that I swore by, upgraded to Callaway hybrids that I like better. Could be because the 7 wood was from 2002 😂


Tommy armour is not even close to being on par with the major brands. Look at any college player, or even high school. You’re going to see name brands only.

The price difference isn’t because of advertising costs, it’s because of the quality of the clubs.

My honest opinion I rather buy used clubs from a premium manufacturer. The engineering that goes into the large company is so much more and golf clubs lose value super quick. So you can get a good set for cheap

Would you recommend?

Every day I stare at my laptop wishing I was on the range in Florida somewhere. I played in college, could go out and shoot 75 on an average day, in the sun 12 hours a day, life was good.

Now instead of playing on the PGA Tour, I am trying to make them a client of mine. Life is no longer good.

I need to get back out there.
