In these unprecedented times, it probably feels like it might be months until you next get chance to tee it up on the golf course on a Saturday morning.

Best Golf Clubs Of 2020

That doesn't stop us from hoping and praying that the season will be here sooner rather than later, however. So when it does arrive, you want to make sure that you're suitably equipped to make a fast start.

With that in mind we've compiled a list of the best golf gear we have tested in 2020 so far and we've even split them into sections for you, to make it even easier to decide which section of your bag needs upgrading before you next get out on to the course.

Do you think we've missed anything out? Let us know below!

DRIVERS

Callaway Mavrik Driver

Released: 23/01/2020

RRP As Reviewed: £469

Quick Hit: Callaway's AI super-computer creates a new trio of Flash Faces for three new models: Mavrik, Max and Sub Zero. These unique faces are said to keep ball speeds up, with the Mavrik head in particular featuring an aerodynamic shape providing optimal speed and performance.

Golfalot Says: "I would certainly put the Sub Zero into my bag. It suits all my needs in terms of a consistent spin rate in the mid 2500s and it flies higher and longer than my current driver."

TaylorMade SIM Max Driver

Released: 06/01/2020

RRP As Reviewed: £479

Quick Hit: The eye-catching new Inertia Generator sole shape is said to reduce drag during the golf swing for more clubhead speed, whilst you also benefit from TaylorMade's Speed Injection and Twist Face technology for better forgiveness and more ball speed.

Golfalot Says: "I'd put the SIM Max driver in my bag tomorrow, it's gorgeous looks are matched with its forgiveness, low spin distance and this is all backed up by the numbers. "

FAIRWAY WOODS

TaylorMade SIM Max Fairway Wood

TaylorMade SIM Max Fairway Wood

Released: 07/02/2020

RRP As Reviewed: £369

Quick Hit: TaylorMade's classic V-Steel sole has been reincarnated, to help with versatility and turf interaction. There is also Twist Face technology and a Speed Pocket specifically aimed at helping with strikes lower on the face - a common issue for many golfers with their fairway woods.

Golfalot Says: "It's a very good looking 3 wood which performs well off the tee and ground and does go that little bit higher. I think I’d choose to game this club above the SIM due to its accuracy and stunning looks."

Callaway Mavrik Max Fairway Woods

Callaway Mavrik Max Fairway Wood

Released: 23/01/2020

RRP As Reviewed: £269

Quick Hit: The largest and most forgiving head in the Mavrik range, the Max promotes a higher launch and draw bias, with a 30% higher MOI than the previous Epic Flash mode.

Golfalot Says: "This is a very good game-improvement club as long as you aren’t put off with the size of the head and the clear draw-bias. The larger footprint here equals greater forgiveness though, which in my opinion is what a higher-handicap golfer should be looking for over looks."

IRONS

Ping G710 Irons

Released: 20.01.2020 RRP As Reviewed: £1183 Quick Hit: Ping's longest, most forgiving iron features a maraging steel face with 5% more MOI than the G700 Iron. The stealth hydropearl finish, with black PVD coating, gives this a distinctive look which has already been a hit among golfers. Golfalot Says: "The G710 is the best looking true game-improvement iron I have tried. It's long and offers great forgiveness." Read the FULL REVIEW

TaylorMade SIM Max OS Irons

TaylorMade SIM Max OS Irons

Released: 07.02.2020

Quick Hit: The longest iron in TaylorMade's lineup, the SIM Max OS features many of the same technolgies as the Max iron but in an oversized head shape, with a taller face and a wider sole for better stability and forgiveness.

Golfalot Says: "If you need ultimate distance and forgiveness, then look no further than the SIM Max OS."

Callaway Mavrik Pro Irons

Callaway Mavrik Pro Irons

Released: 06.02.2020

RRP As Reviewed: £849

Quick Hit: The use of Artificial Intelligence allows Callaway to produce a unique Flash Face Cup for every single iron in the set, providing better consistency and results. Urethane microspheres also help with sound and feel, creating the 'player's-distance' iron.

Golfalot Says: "The one word that kept springing to mind whilst hitting these clubs was 'pure'. They were pure feeling, pure sounding and pure looking."

WEDGES

Titleist Vokey SM8 Wedges

Released: 06.03.2020

RRP As Reviewed: £160

Quick Hit: There are three main improvements from the SM7 range: a new centre of gravity placement which makes it much easier to square the face, refined sole and grind options, and 100% inspected spin milled grooves on the face.

Golfalot Says: "They look, feel and perform great and with the added grind and bounce there are so many options to suit your swing and conditions."

Released: 01.2020

RRP As Reviewed: £109

Quick Hit: A buttery feel is produced via a soft-forged 8620 Carbon Steel construction, while machine-engraved score lines in the precision-milled face are said to have a higher density pattern, which provides more consistent contact with the ball and generates better spin and control

Golfalot Says: "It looks great and performs very consistently, whilst also providing a little more forgiveness than you'd expect from a compact shape."

PUTTERS

Ping Heppler Putters

Ping Heppler Putters

Released: 20.01.2020

The new Microhinge Star insert also provides a slightly firmer feel than previous Odyssey faces.

Golfalot Says: "This is no doubt a good performing putter. We love Stroke Lab at Golfalot and I like the combination of the hard feeling face, stroke lab shaft and standout sight line."

GOLF SHOES

Ecco S-Three Golf Shoes

Ecco S-Three Golf Shoes

Released: April 2020

RRP As Reviewed: £180

Quick Hit: The main technology comes in the form of a Zonal Fluidform injection, which is applied into the shoe's midsole to create three different zones of softness. This is said to provide the right levels of cushioning and stability in the areas of the foot where you'll need it most.

FootJoy Pro|SL and Pro|SL Carbon Golf Shoes

FootJoy ProSL Golf Shoes

Released: 22.01.2020

RRP As Reviewed: £149.99/£179.99

Quick Hit: The Pro|SL now features an infinity outsole which provides 189 traction points for superior ground contact and grip, along with a dual density midsole for extra comfort. The Pro|SL Carbon comes with a carbon-fibre midsole insert with Ortholite impressions insole, along with a few other extra touches such as moulded 3D heel collar and stretch tongue.

Golfalot Says: "I could see keen golfers buying both shoes. The Pro|SL would be a golfer's summer shoe - it's a little more breathable and lightweight whereas you really could play in the Pro|SL Carbon in any conditions. It just offers that little more warmth, comfort, support and looks a little meatier."
