The nights are drawing in and the clocks will soon be going back, as the summer golf season draws to a close. It does not mean that our passion for golf is showing any signs of abating. Keen golfers will already be thinking ahead to next spring and the thought of long, sunny days on the fairways again. But remember, the winter is a great time for keeping our game ticking over on the course, practising at the driving range and implementing technical changes in our golf, as well as upgrading our equipment.
Here at AMERICAN GOLF, it is our 12-month mission to feed the 12-month passion of every single keen golfer. It could be the first-timer desperate to get into this amazing sport. The player coming back to golf now he or she has more time on their hands. Or it could be the player who eats, breathes and sleeps golf – always on the look out for new clothes, a change in equipment or tips to improve their game. American Golf has all those bases covered.

If there is one club that we think most carefully about buying, it’s the driver. It is the biggest purchase we can make and probably the club that most amateurs are desperate to use successfully. So, for a Black Friday golf gift to remember, the TaylorMade STEALTH PLUS+ Golf Driver ticks the right boxes. And if it’s good enough for American star Dustin Johnson, one of the longest and straightest hitters in the sport, it’s good enough for us.
This driver is aimed at getting the best for us off the tee. The 60X Carbon Twist Face is lighter than a titanium one and is designed to make it easier for us to hit the ball straighter. The club will give us maximum forgiveness and additional ball speed, so hopefully our tee shots can go straighter and further. The Stealth Plus+ also comes with a 10-gram sliding weight track and an adjustable loft sleeve, so that we can find the right combination to feel comfortable with for our own game.
