GolfWRX Spotlight: Sub 70 Golf

Published

on

Direct-to-consumer, or DTC, companies have thrived in the social media age. Sub 70 Golf fits into the DTC category, but in a way that companies selling razors and mattresses just can match—every single Sub 70 product is built from scratch entirely custom for the end-user!

The Sub 70 Story

Sub 70 is the brainchild of Jason Hiland, a golfer since his earliest memories, and someone who has been around the golf industry long enough to know that customer service is just as important as dialing in club specs. For Sub 70 Golf, it is just as much about the experience as it is about the performance.

Sub 70’s goal is to provide the highest quality clubs at the lowest possible price while also creating a community of golfers that love golf and identify with the idea of getting value from the people they are working with. Sub 70 operates on a slower product cycle because they believe fitting is more important than attempting year over year innovation at the sacrifice of having quality clubs sit on a rack for half the price they were originally sold for. As it has been discussed many times before, if a club has the proper specs, and was fit for the golfer, what is there really to gain year over year?

The Product Line

Sub 70 offers a full line of products from drivers to CNC milled putters. If you want a full bag of Sub 70 gear, it’s available to you. The driver is comparable to other models on the market by offering full adjustability, and the fairway wood line has both adjustable and fixed hosel options—to appeal to tinkers and players looking for a classic setup. The Sub 70 Pro Fairway is a standout thanks to its clean looks and hot 455 carpenter steel face, and although they haven’t pursued professionals for the sake of advertising, it has seen action on the PGA Tour Champions.

The standout in the line is really the 699 irons that come in both a standard and pro model (featured below) with reduced offset and black finish. They offer an extremely thin TPU supported face to provide maximum ball speed and feel, while also coming in at under $500 for a 4-PW set—a price point that no other OEM can touch.

The Sub 70 Guarantee

Even though they might not be “local” in a geographic sense, Jason and the entire team at Sub 70 golf want to hear from customers about how their clubs are performing and want to build relationships. They offer a 60-day, 100 percent satisfaction guarantee

“If for whatever reason, the player is not satisfied with any aspect of the clubs, the company stands behind its product and will issue a full refund.”

Each set comes delivered with a handwritten note from the individual club builder who assembled them along with a phone number to call if you have any questions or concerns about the clubs.

If you are looking for clubs that offer both value and performance, Sub 70 Golf should be very high on your list of must-tries.

    It’s too bad the big guys have likely got patent lawsuits headed their way. Trying to kill them with legal bills.

    Was in the market for new irons in September of last year and learned about Sub70. I went to pga store to get fitted for proper specs and then called Sub70 owner Jason. He helped me pick out everything with the proper specs and was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. I ended up ordering the 699 irons and a couple of wedges. I was so impressed with the service, clubs and price that I ended up selling my driver, fairway wood and putter and replaced them with all Sub70 clubs. I now have a full bag of Sub70 and saved a ton of money. The 699 irons are incredible. All of my future purchases will be from Sub70. Great company.

    Another satisfied sub70 golf customer here. I love my 699s so much. They helped me go from a 10.2 to a 7.3. They are pretty much aim and shoot. They are so good I just gave up my RTX4 wedges and added 3 sub70 wedges to my bag. All I can say is phenomenal. Jason and the team are awesome & easy to communicate with.

    I have the 699 4 iron, 639 CB 5 iron, 639 MB Plus 6-PW. Such a variety of good looking irons that range from game improvement to serious player’s clubs so it was fun to create a set of irons with a little bit of everything. It was easy to do, Jason was easy to talk to and very helpful. He answered emails and calls quickly, even took an order on a sunday morning which was awesome for a anxious impulse buyer like myself. I haven’t tried their hybrid/fairway/driver….yet…so I can’t speak to those, but the irons are top notch. Trying to convince my buddies to ditch their love for PXG and taylormade and play some serious irons that’ll save them some serious $$$.

    I had the chance to meet Jason at the Chicago Golf Show this past winter and ended up buying three wedges. Sub 70 is the real deal and they really care about the customer, and their clubs are comparable to others from the big names. Hope to get fit for irons this summer, if we’re ever allowed outside again…

Details of Collin Morikawa’s WITB changes at The Open

Published

Editor’s note: We filed this piece for PGATour.com’s Equipment Report

Collin Morikawa’s superb play over the opening two days of The 149th Open Championship has come after the American made some equipment adjustments heading into this week.

The 24-year-old, who shot 67-64 in the opening two rounds at Royal St. George’s, swapped out three key irons before Thursday’s opening round.

Morikawa switched from his TaylorMade P730 irons to the brand’s P7MC model in his 7-iron through 9-iron, a decision made after finding the P7MCs aided his turf interaction and provided a more centered ball strike, as well as a touch more forgiveness.

“I changed my irons, my 9- through 7-iron that I normally have blades in. I changed to the MCs strictly because I couldn’t find the center of the face,” said Morikawa following his second round. “Those are three crucial clubs that are some of my favorite clubs. My 8-iron is my favorite club in the bag, and when I wasn’t able to hit it (well) last week well, I knew I had to try something different.”

Last week’s Scottish Open was Morikawa’s first experience on the links. He finished T71.
