Golf Digest Hot List 2019: Announcing the 129 gold- and silver-medal winning, game-changing clubs worth your time

We’ve never been more jacked up about the game’s latest equipment. We can’t wait to blast every driver, flush every iron, roll every putter. So that’s what we did. We considered 222 candidates for the 2019 Golf Digest Hot List; 129 made our cut. The clubs featured on these pages, the ones that made it through our rigorous scrutiny, are the only sticks worth your time, energy and dollars this year. That means trying before you buy, certainly, but whether you’re revamping your whole bag or just replacing a wedge, we urge you to include a qualified fitter in your process. Each of these clubs can be a game-changer for you. We know it. We tried them. We're just like you.
