Wilson Ultra Men’s Golf Set Review
Considering Wilson’s Men’s 2015 Ultra Complete Package Golf Set
Wilson’s Men’s 2015 Ultra Complete Package Golf Set consists of ten clubs. It is available for both left-handed and right-handed individuals alike. And it works best for men between the height of 5’5” and 6’1”. While meant for beginners the set works for both casual and competitive play and is an affordable set to enter the game with.
The driver has the lowest loft, meaning that the ball will travel in less of an arch, and is a 1 wood. It moves the ball in almost a straight line between 200 and 230 yards when used right. The 3 fairway wood has a large rounded head with a flat bottom which glides over the course of the shot. It carries the ball a shorter distance than the driver. The length of the club is also shorter than that of the driver. Like all woods this club’s face is big.
Each wood has its own degree of loft, with 1 driver being the least lofted. This 3 fairway wood has a higher loft and, as the name suggest is for use on the fairway or to hit the ball from the tee. Covers are on the woods in this set. This set does carry a driver and 3 fairway. It does not carry a 5 wood in it. The shaft on the driver is also graphite. As for 2 and 4 wood they were more prevalent 20 years ago. They are quite uncommon today as technology has improved the performance of most wood. Professionals often opt to have a 5, 7, and 9 wood in their bag, opposed to having even numbered wood in their bags.
Getting a Grip on Irons and Hybrids
The irons are generally used when the ball is less than 200 yards from the green. Lower numbered irons, 2-3, have less loft. They send balls further. Often time’s players will opt to use a 5 wood or hybrid instead. 4 – 6 are middle irons. The lower the number the further the ball should travel. They are for when the ball is around 150 feet from the green, 7 and above get the ball up higher in the air, due to their loft. This set contains irons 5 – 9 and note that this set is for beginners. It does not include lower numbered irons because they are particularly difficult to master. The shafts on these irons are steel.
The 4 Hybrid’s face is like an iron but the head is round like a wood. The center of gravity on the hybrid is further back. It is lower than on an iron making it more forgiving and one of the most versatile golf clubs. It is a favorite of many players.
The Wonder of Wedges and The Power of the Right Putter
Wedges are just specialty irons with high lofts. This set includes a pitching wedge. This set does not include an approach wedge, a sand wedge, a lob wedge, or a high lob wedge. The one provided is useful for escaping from bunkers and tall grass. The putter is to roll the ball along the green towards the hole and they tend to vary. This one has a classic heel to toe weighted alignment. Yet, players who prefer another style of putter could swap this out.
The Carrying Case and Possible Additions
The yellow carrying case is comfortable. It will also protect the clubs. The case also has plenty of zipped compartments in which golfers can store tees and balls. It has room for gloves, ball markers, towels, and spare score cards. And even things like sunscreen to protect against sunburn, a first aid kit, rain gear for torrential downpours, and a water bottle to stay hydrated can fit. Additionally, it comes with a backpack style carrying strap and kickstand so that it can be maneuvered and carried with ease. Some may be thinking of adding four more clubs to the bag to reach the USGA’s limit. They might consider a 5 wood, a sand or lob wedge, and 3 and 4 irons. Yet, the set is an affordable starting point for those looking to start golfing.
