The £19.99 titanium driver is here. Yes, that’s right – a fully-specced, titanium headed, carbon-shafted, 460cc driver for less than the price of a night out!

New brand Palm Springs Golf is aiming to revolutionise the budget end of the golf equipment market with a range of good-quality, low-priced gear that plays well but simply won’t break the bank.

Leading the company’s Spring 2010 launch is the explosive 2EZ (too-easy) driver which boasts technology seen in far more expensive drivers at a fraction of the cost.

Featuring a 460cc nano-plated club head, the club has an increased MOI for stability and distance – even in off-centre strikes. Meanwhile, the Dual Crown Head design has enabled the clubmakers to position the centre of gravity lower in the clubhead to deliver impressive power, control and forgiveness.

The Palm Springs 2EZ is fitted with a low-torque, 100% modulus graphite shaft to offer a long carry and penetrating ball flight, making it the perfect choice for anyone looking for a club to improve performance with immediate results without needing a mortgage to fund it.

The Palm Springs Golf 2010 range of drivers, fairway woods, irons, bags and putters is available from leading online retailer The Sports HQ, who offer clubs for sale at factory-direct prices.

Sports PLC are the owners of Palm Springs Golf, Forgan of St Andrews ( and Stowamatic. Other brands include Woodworm Golf, Prosimmon Golf, Confidence Golf and Young Gun.

Launching the collection, Chief Executive, Simon Millington, said: “Most golfers’ hair would curl if they knew the actual manufacturing cost of expensive brand-name clubs. They really are paying for the name in every sense.

“By effectively selling direct from the factory, we are able to offer golfers good quality equipment at extremely low prices.

“The days are gone when low price meant low quality and anyone who hits a Palm Springs 2EZ club will see they are getting tremendous value for money.”

The Palm Springs Golf 2EZ 460cc driver comes with an all-weather grip and matching long-neck headcover, and with a RRP of £89.99 is available from priced just £19.99.

Golfers can match the driver with co-ordinating Palm Springs Golf 2EZ Hybrid Woods, recovery woods that have been introduced to the game to replace hard-to-hit long irons.

The dual crown design of the hybrid’s stainless steel head is bigger than most comparable clubheads, with an expanded ‘footprint’ which promotes a higher MOI through the swing.

With a repositioned low centre of gravity, the club is powerful and forgiving so golfers will enjoy more consistency in higher and longer launches, especially from the rough.

Designed to be easy to hit, promoting longer and straighter shots, the Palm Springs 2EZ Hybrid is the perfect choice for anyone looking a club to improve performance with immediate results.

The Palm Springs 2EZ Hybrid comes in three choices, the 3 hybrid has 18º loft, 4 hybrid has 21º loft and the 5 hybrid has 24º loft.

With an RRP of £49.99 they are available from for just £16.99.
