UTry gives you the freedom to take Golf Clubs, GPS or Rangefinders to your course and to use at your pace! Use it as much as you like so you can really know what the product will do for your game before you invest in it.
Just like you would never buy a new car without a test drive, you most certainly shouldn't buy a new club without hitting it first. But traditionally the only way of doing so is on the range at a demo day or hitting clubs into nets at a golf retailer.
U-try could be a game-changer. Golfers pay $25 per club (up to two per order) to try the latest driver, fairway or hybrid from top manufacturers Callaway, TaylorMade, Titleist, Mizuno, Cleveland, Cobra, Wilson and XXIO. If they like the club after a 14-day trial period, they keep it, and the $25 fee goes toward the purchase. If they don't, they can send the club/clubs back in the original box with the prepaid shipping label. No harm, no foul.
\"You can only get so much whacking balls at a demo day or hitting balls in a net (indoors at a golf store),\" said Doug Smith, the vice president of business development for Global Value Commerce. \"It's fine. It worked for years, but there are shortcomings.
Global Value Commerce can do so because they are an e-commerce company best known for selling new and used golf balls and equipment at websites such as GlobalGolf.com, 3balls.com, GolfShoesOnly.com, TaylorMadeGolfPreOwned.com and FairwayStyles.com. When you return the club after 14 days, they can resell it as used on one of their used platforms.
Option 1: Heading to the local golf or club-fitting store. This experience was never ideal because of the inevitable hard sell you get from the salesperson. Sure you got to hit new stuff, but it still was probably a scuffed up (or taped up) demo club. Most golf stores don't have outdoor ranges, so you would be stuck banging balls into a net, never really seeing your ball flight or just how far it went. The trial (and error) was all based on trust and feel, even with a TrackMan launch monitor spitting out data. I think my swing is considerably worse indoors than out. Anybody else similarly paranoid Businesses that specialize in club-fitting - such as ClubChampion and TrueSpec - will charge upwards of $80-$125 or more for a one-hour fitting, depending on the club.
Option 2: Attending a demo day at a store or course. Many golf courses and golf stores hold popular demo days, where one or more representatives from one or more equipment companies shows up to preach the virtues of their latest gear. For example, the Haggin Oaks Golf Expo, the nation's largest demo day, celebrated its 43rd year in April, attracting thousands of golfers to the Haggin Oaks Golf Course in Sacramento to try out new Cleveland, TaylorMade, Callaway, Mizuno, Titleist, Tour Edge, PING, Wilson, Cobra and XXIO equipment.
But, as Smith pointed out, there are shortcomings to these golf parties. What if you're busy/gone that day How far must you drive to attend What if the one driver/company you wanted to try isn't represented How many swings will you actually get if the event is overrun with people What if a horde of folks just want to hit free range balls with no intent to buy anything at all Needless to say, you may come to a demo day with a plan, but leave without the experience, or club, you desired.
Option 3: Hoping for the private club treatment. Private club members tend to have it much easier. Their demo days are less crowded. Sometimes, the pro will let members try different clubs for sale in the shop on a range without the hassles of dealing with a sales rep or fighting the crowds of a demo day. Often times, their biggest events, such as the member guest, affords opportunities to try new clubs. If you're not a member or know somebody who is, however, you're outta luck.
\"One of the things we saw in the marketplace was somewhat of a disjointed trial offering in the market,\" Smith said. \"You had a complete lack of ability to try clubs when buying online. In the brick-and-mortar world, manufacturers have stuff in the field, but at private clubs, most golfers won't have access. For the public, it was relegated to locations where they had demo days. It can be an intimidating experience. They can be busy. They can be chaotic.\"
U-try solves a number of issues. First off, no crowds or salespeople. The club is shipped right to your door. You get to be the first one to rip the plastic off the head and hit a shot. That's a thrill for any golfer.
Every new U-try club sent back to Global Value Commerce will be resold online as a used club. The company plans to spend the first year gathering data on how many golfers actually buy the clubs they test and will tweak the program as necessary.
Yes, your opinion is surely correct .When i wish I will buy the clubs. first of all, if it is very suitable and comfortable when in Clubs , I am so anxious to the bottom and then Try is best , experience of the first impression is most significant for life.Thanks, tj.koga an old player

Also the best public course offering demos I've found is Pheasant Run in Chowchilla CA. Just leave them a credit card and a drivers license and you can play the full 18 hole golf course with them. I did it with the new Callaway Rogue driver.
Global Golf has Callaway Preowned beat! First u are hitting NEW clubs not preowned scratched ones. Second it includes most manufacturers not just Callaway. And last u dont have to put down the full amount of club and wait for refund to come back if u dont like it! Callaway preowned needs to change their policy if anything!
Van, You should check out Callaway Preowned. They have 3 pr 4 different categories of condition. Their \"LIke New\" category is just that. I've gotten two clubs that you cannot tell the difference between them and brand new. Great discount as well. Also they do carry other manufactures clubs as they also take trade-ins. They may source from elsewhere too.

Take a look at the process that Scott and Miura went through to build them, definitely a must-watch for any golf fanatic to see this handcrafted process. The video will leave you in awe from start to finish.
Scott really appreciated the detail, precision, and love that go into all the irons that come out of the Miura factory. He particularly took a liking to the fact that Miura-San, still at 80 years old, is hand-making clubs himself and has passed it down to his sons.
When people think of golf, most likely immediately associate it with being outdoors. So it is truly mind-blowing to learn that Straits Research valued the golf simulator market at $1.3 billion in 2021 and projects that it will reach $3.3 billion by 2030, growing at a compound annual growth rate of 10.1%.
Indoor multi-sport and golf simulator commercial play is booming. Food and entertainment businesses like Topgolf Swing Suite, X-Golf, and 5-Iron Golf have seen remarkable growth, with Topgolf indoor suites growing from 29 stores in 2019 to 120-plus locations. The development of indoor golf is not limited to commercial businesses.
First, visit a Titleist trial set partner location and look for the bag display in the golf shop. Trial sets are an easy way for you to experience Titleist clubs on the golf course or the practice tee.
