Follow up review of Founders Golf Club Set

This is a follow up to the first review I did on the FC2010 Founders club golf set I purchased earlier this summer. I’ve had some time to put in a few rounds and have updates on some of the aspects I like or dislike about this set:

The bag

I really wish that the bag had a better water bottle holder somewhere. There’s a mesh bit to the side that I think is meant to hold a water bottle but doesn’t do a very good job of it. It needs to be deeper to keep the bottle from popping out when you’re walking. Other than that, all good. The carrying strap is a bit thin and cheap but I didn’t find it bothering me even after carrying the clubs for 18 holes.

The Irons

Nothing to complain about here. I found adding a cheap sand wedge really helped me out when I was closer to the hole or in a bunker. A $20 Wilson “Sandy Andy” 57° sand wedge did the trick.

The Hybrids

The first time I had the set out, I couldn’t get the Founders Club hybrids to hit very well. After adjusting my grip to be a bit firmer, they started going straighter. Something has broken loose in the shaft of 1 hybrid and my 3 wood and now rattles around in there. This points to a poor build quality. Does it matter? Not really.

The Woods

The #3 wood in this set has become my go-to club when I need a really tight shot off the tees. As a beginner, I have a bit of difficulty keeping the 1 driver on the fairway but have 0 problems with the 3. I’m very happy with how it hits.

One picture that I missed out on with the last post was comparing the size of the driver, 3, and hybrid. I’ve got a few images below that compare the sizes of the heads as well as the lengths of the shafts.

  1. I got these same clubs. The bag broke and was awful. I replaced the hybrids and driver rather quickly (i got stiff shafts, but they were still too weak). But as you mentioned, the fairway woods hit very nicely and i have had no issues with the irons. In hindsight, I wish I would have bought a nice iron set and filled everything else as needed.
