About Out Of Bounds Golf

You’re most likely just an average golfer. So are we. Out Of Bounds Golf was created to help the average player get their questions answered, whether that’s what golf ball they should be using or how far the average person drives the ball.

We all know how far they hit the ball on TV. We all know what balls and clubs the professionals are using. What we might not know is whether or not those are the best options for us. In most cases, it’s not.

Our goal is to find the questions average hackers are asking, do the research ourselves, and provide an in-depth answer or solution. There really isn’t too many good resources out there.

Too many websites just summarize what’s already available online. They say the exact same thing that’s on the manufacturers websites and use the same pictures. That’s great and all, but how about we actually do the testing and find the true answer.

Let’s take two balls to the course and see how they compare when an average player hits them. Mechanical arms and launch monitors might not tell the whole story. That’s what we try and do.

The History Of Out Of Bounds Golf

The Out Of Bounds Golf website was started in 2018 by Jon Webber, and not long after that came the YouTube channel. I’m just an average golfer who loves playing the game and enjoys researching as much as I can about golf to improve my game.

The term “out of bounds” golf comes from the fact that we all spend more time than we’d like searching for the ball we just hit into the bushes. If you’re a mid to high handicapper, we’ll have something for you.

How We Do Research

We put out various different types of content on this site. Some articles are products focused and others are information focuses. Both require a good amount of research.

Information based articles simply answer questions people have related to golf. It could be “how far should I hit my 7 iron” or “what happens if you grip the club too tightly.”

What we try and do is find the most accurate answer. We’ll go to the range, squeeze the club tight, and see what happens. We’ll ask 10+ different golfers how far they hit their 7 iron to calculate an average.

For product reviews, we bring the product to the course and see how it performs. For product comparisons, we see how they compare to each other and try to find which is right for you. You can see more about how we test products here.

How We Make Money

We make money in two ways, through advertisements shown in our articles and from recommending products that we like or use ourselves.

In our product reviews or “best of” articles, we’ll include links to go and purchase the product. If you click on one of those links and make a purchase, we’ll receive a small commission (at no cost to you).

This has no impact on what products we recommend. If it’s a bad product we won’t recommend it. If we like a product and think it’ll be a good fit for you then we will.

I hope we’re able to answer whatever questions you have about golf. We do our best to put out the most helpful resources that we can. If you do have questions that we haven’t answered, you can always send us an email through our contact us page.
