From First Swing to First Tournament
Ultralight, for beginning to intermediate players, is the perfect starter set because the clubs are up to 30% lighter than adult clubs, which help create good habits starting with the first swing. Tour Series, for intermediate to advanced players, fills a gap that is sometimes overlooked – the time when a skilled junior can continue to grow with the right equipment. Clubs are offered in nine sizes and are based on height, not age, because the correct length, shaft flex and weight means faster club speed, more distance and more fun.
