Accurate Ratings

From Seasoned Experts

At 2nd Swing Golf, we work very hard to accurately rate our clubs according to our condition guide. We understand that condition is subjective, and each person has their own opinion. We have set forth a condition guide that we follow and use to rate our clubs, but the best judge of all is the photos. If you are unsure of the condition as we have rated it, you can see for yourself the condition of the item prior to purchasing.
