<b>Have An Open Mind</b>
I was really excited to try clubs from certain big-name companies, but once I tested them I found that they didn't perform well for me. Had I been the guy who had walked into a golf shop and bought a club off the rack based on looks and brand-strength, I wouldn't have been happy. On the flip side, I found that there were a few clubs that I would never have considered that performed remarkably well.
