GolfWRX Spotted: Costco Kirkland Signature irons on USGA Conforming List



Costco is continuing its expansion of the Kirkland Signature line into golf with new irons recently spotted on the USGA Conforming List.

Having previously produced balls, wedges and a putter, the new Kirkland Signature (Version 2) irons show that Costco is going all the way with golf equipment, with an offering that includes ‘Kirkland Signature’ and ‘Tungsten’ marked on the backside of the iron head, while ‘Forged’ is marked on the hosel.

Interestingly, the listing states that the irons are manufactured by Indi Golf, who have manufactured their own line of wedges (both conforming and non-conforming) as well as putters.

It appears as if the irons feature in part a hollow body construction and look to be less of a super game improvement iron than many would have anticipated.

In our forums, our members have been discussing the new Kirkland Signature irons and have been sharing their impressions, not least with the similarity in looks of the new additions to TaylorMade’s popular P790 irons.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • st1800e: “Interesting they went for a players distance iron and not a super or ultra game improvement iron.”
  • Klubster: “Logo aside, if they perform well, they will sell. But the logo will put off a lot of people just because of the vanity factor. I would rather see an exclusive brand like Dick’s did with the Tommy Armour 845s. I am sure they would not have sold as well if they had stamped Dick’s on the back.”
  • naj959: “I’m excited about these clubs. They would make the perfect set for my pops, who probably hasn’t swung a club in 10+ years but wants to grab some sticks with the latest tech. And he loves Costco! The members really do think highly of the K-Sig brand. I can see these in the bags of a large number of casual golfers. If they come in lefty, I know what someone’s getting on their birthday.”
  • FormerBigDaddy: “Not gonna lie, they look nice. I also agree that if they changed the logo/stamping on their golf equipment, they might do even better. Minimalist “KS” stamp or maybe “Kirkland” on the hosel like Taylormade does, and just the “Signature” cursive script would be kind of slick. I honestly think they could make some noise in golf equipment if they made a good product that didn’t scream Costco branding at a good price. We all know we overpay for what golf clubs actually cost to make. If they sold these at $399 with dynamic gold shafts, they’d probably sell a lot of them.”

    Why would anyone buy this stuff?
    Surely a good secondhand set of a leading OEM’s iron would be better quality and value?
    I cannot understand why people buy any golf equipment from second rate companies when there is such good value out there

    Some lead tape will easily cover the stamping without hurting playability, though.

    makes sense for them to offer a players distance style iron since they sell the Callaway Edge game improvement set.

The current average driving distance of men and women amateur golfers by age and handicap



Distance in the game of golf is one of the hottest topics currently in the sport, especially with the USGA and R&A’s recent announcement that a plan is in place to roll back the golf ball for professional players.

When it comes to the amateur game, just how far are you hitting the ball compared to those in your age and handicap group?

Thanks to Arccos and their recently published study, you can find that out.

Per the report, which used data based on over 20 million drives – using Driver only – from the Arccos dataset, the numbers show that men’s numbers have increased on the previous year’s study but are down on the 2018 data. At the same time, women’s distance trends are continuing a downturn.

As for age and handicap, you can check out the full data and breakdown below, which also includes accuracy off the tee.
