About Jon Webber

Jon Webber is chief product tester at Out Of Bounds Golf, and has tested out a large list of different golf products.

His testing with golf balls, wedges, and GPS units can be found on the Out Of Bounds Golf YouTube channel.

He also has numerous articles to help beginners and average players understand the game better and hopefully, improve their game.

I first started getting into golf when I was pretty young. My Grandpa was a big golfer and I think that’s where the interest came from. I was pretty into it for a number of years but stopped playing for a number of years because of other commitments. It wasn’t until 2018 that I really got back into it and that’s when I created this website.

Being away from the game for that long, my game definitely suffered and I had a lot of questions about what gear I should get and how to improve my game. At the time, almost all of the websites out there seemed to be for low handicaps and scratch players. I had a hard time finding the answers I was after, which sparked the idea of starting this site.

Back in 2018, I normally shot between 100 and 105 on a par 72 golf course. That’s actually pretty average for the weekend golfer and it didn’t take very long to break through 100 consistently. Since then, I’ve worked my way through the 90s and can now shoot in the 80s consistently. My goal is to continue getting better and break into the 70s in the next couple of years.

I’ve had lessons, taken online courses, and watched hundreds of videos online about improving my game. Some ideas worked while others didn’t. My goal is to share what actually worked for me and my game. My best round to date was 10 over par but my best 9 holes were 4 over par.

I’m also really into testing out different clubs, balls, and other golf products. We all know what the pros use, but I really wanted to figure out what beginners, high handicaps, and mid handicaps should be using. That’s why I’m always trying out new clubs and balls to see what works the best.

Here are some of his current milestones:

  • Best 18 holes: 81 (par 71)
  • Best 9 holes: +4 (par 72)
  • Top 100 Canadian courses: 5/100

Some Frequently Asked Questions

Is This Your Full-Time Job?

Yes, the Out Of Bounds Golf website and YouTube channel are what take up the majority of my time.

In 2014, I decided to drop out of university, where I was in the middle of a business degree. Fast forward to 2018, which is when I found content creation and decided to start Out Of Bounds Golf.

I also have a side project that’s in a different niche. I’d like to spend more time on it eventually, but OBG takes up a lot of my time right now.

What Are Your Favorite Golf Products?

I’ve tried and reviewed so many different products over the years. Some have been great, some have been so-so, and only a select few have been terrible.

If you want to know what my thoughts are, you can go to our “best buys” or “product reviews” section and look through some of our articles.

I’m currently playing: Driver: Callaway Rogue St Max Fairway Wood: Callaway Rogue St Max Irons: Cobra LTDx One Length Wedges: Callaway CB 50/56 Putter: Wilson Infinite Buckingham Ball: Wilson Triad. To stay updated, here is his What’s In The Bag page.

What’s Your Favorite Course?

My goal is to play the top courses around the world and document them on this site and the YouTube channel. I’ve played a lot of the courses in my area and am hoping to venture out and play more courses abroad.

Currently, some of my favorite courses have been Tobiano Golf Course, Tower Ranch Golf Club, and Sagebrush Golf Course. More to come!

What Courses Do You Most Want To Play?

This list is pretty much never-ending. There are so many different courses out there and I really have no idea if I’ll be able to make a dent in the list.

Obviously, we all want to play Augusta and St Andrews, so I guess those would be near the top of my list. Other than that, I’d love to get on the oceanside courses in Ireland and Scotland.
