New golf drivers can be fun to shop for – and expensive to purchase. While most golfers love to try out the new technology on the market and see what it can do for their game, few enjoy actually pulling out their credit card to buy the club. If you are a golfer who always wants to have a new driver in the bag that you can show off to your friends, it will be a big help if you know where to look for some good deals.

Following are three different possible ways to save money on the purchase of your next new golf drivers.

Buy Used Online

This is a relatively popular option, and is certainly a good way to go, especially if you don’t mind playing clubs that are not the most recent models. Many of the used clubs you are able to find online will be at least from last year, if not older. With as rapid of a release as some companies have, you may even find heavily discounted drivers from released just a few months ago. That doesn’t mean that they can’t work great for you, but you need to know what you are looking for and pick out one that is best for you. An upside of this strategy is that you will be shopping for new or like-new golf drivers that aren’t currently getting all of the marketing attention – meaning the prices could be significantly lower than the brand new models. Be sure to do your research before making the purchase and find out how much the club has been used, what shaft it has, etc.

Trade in to the Manufacturer

If you are a golfer that stays loyal to a single club maker as you switch from model to model, you might be able to take advantage of the buyback programs that some companies are offering. Check directly on the website of your favorite club company, such as TaylorMade or Callaway, and see if they are offering a program to give you a discount on a brand new golf drivers when you trade-in your old ones. This method might not get you quite as much of a discount as you can get from buying a used driver, but you will have the benefit of getting a brand new club directly from the manufacturer…and you get some credit from your old one.

Look for Promotions

This plan won’t save you money on the purchase so much as possibly get you bonus products when you buy the driver. For example, golf shops or the club companies themselves will occasionally offer a deal where you get a free gift card when you buy a new golf driver, or get a big discount on buying a second club. One likely place to find these kinds of promotions is at your local golf shop. Take a trip around (or call) to the golf stores in your area before you buy new golf drivers to find out what might be available.

Even if you have your mind set on a specific driver, you don’t necessarily have to pay full price. As long as you are willing to consider used clubs, or to shop around for a promotional deal, you may be able to get the club you have your eye on for significantly less than full retail price.

Some golfers are always seeking out the latest and greatest clubs to add to their bag – and others won’t buy a new club even if their old one seems to be falling apart. While it is totally up to you how often you replace your driver, there are some signs that it might be time for a new one. If you ignore the signs, and do not consider to purchase a new golf driver and continue to play with your old driver, you are likely to see less-than-ideal results and may be holding yourself back from better play that could be waiting just around the corner.

So how do you know when it is the right time to start shopping for a new golf drivers? The following three signs are a good place to start.

Sign #1 – Inconsistent Ball Flight

While an inconsistent ball flight could be a sign of a problem within your swing, it could also be a sign that your driver is no longer the right club for you. Pay attention to how your irons are performing as compared to your driver. If you are getting a repeatable ball flight from your iron shots, but your driver is inconsistent, the shaft/head combo in the driver might not be a good match for your swing. It would be wise to take a club fitting session with a professional and try a variety of drivers to see what kind of ball flights are created. The chances are good that you will see a more-consistent pattern when you find a club that is perfectly suited to your swing. Then you can make a next step and purchase new golf drivers.

Sign #2 – Stress in the Club Face

If you start to see signs of stress on the club face of your driver, it might not have much useful life left. At the least, these stresses could lead to a loss of distance on your drives – at the worst, the club face could crack completely and leave the club totally useless. Before you have that happen to you in the middle of a round, get a new golf drivers into your bag and avoid the trouble. Signs of stress in the club face can be rather small at first, so take a close look and determine the current condition that you are playing with.

Sign #3 – Loss of Confidence

Sometimes, you can lose confidence in a particular club and it might not ever come back – even if your swing is in good condition. If you have a bad run with your driver over a period of a few rounds, you might not ever be able to stand over it with confidence again. When it gets to a point that you lack of confidence in the driver is starting to affect the rest of your game all around the course, the time might be right to shop around for a new club.

New golf drivers can be an expensive purchase, so don’t enter into this decision lightly. However, if you want to get the most from your game and feel like your driver is holding you back for one of the reasons above, change may be necessary.
