You've got the skills to become the best golfer on tour, but you need the equipment to match if you want to win all the titles, so use our EA Sports PGA Tour best bag guide to help you out!

There is so much customisation within the new title that it can be a bit overwhelming for new players - especially if they don't have a good knowledge of golf.

Fear not, as we take you through the various clubs, specs and more to give you the best bag in EA Sports PGA Tour.

EA Sports PGA Tour Best Bag

In EA Sports PGA Tour you have the ability to create up to five custom bags, each with a different assortment of clubs, giving you the right tools to tackle different courses.

As well as picking the right clubs to suit your style or the course, you can also change the degree of your driver and wedges. A lower degree will give you a lower loft on your shot, causing the ball to fly further and roll upon landing. A higher degree gives a higher loft, causing the ball to fly higher and stop faster upon landing.

When you start the game, all your clubs will have common and balanced specs, which you can then upgrade to improve power, accuracy, control and recovery.

COVERING ALL BASES - Make sure there isn't too much yardage between clubs

In creating your bag you want to make sure that all distances of shots are accounted for, so you can always be in the best position, using the shot type you want, not being forced into plays that might not work.

As a general rule, this means that each club should give a distance of around 10-15 yards difference from the next club up or down from it.

The exception to this is with your driver and wood, which will be your big hitters!

With that in mind, your best bag to start with should look something like this:

  • Driver
  • 3 Wood
  • 5 Hybrid
  • 4 Iron
  • 5 Iron
  • 6 Iron
  • 7 Iron
  • 8 Iron
  • 9 Iron
  • Pitching Wedge
  • 50° Wedge
  • 54° Wedge
  • 60° Wedge
  • Putter

Club Specs

A big mistake some people are making in EA Sports PGA Tour is buying equipment in the store to improve their clubs.

Equipment does nothing to the stats, it is purely cosmetic. Although you want to look as slick as possible on the fairways, what you need to invest in to improve your abilities are specs!

You will see that there are varying rarities for each club and spec type, going from common, through uncommon, rare, epic and finally legendary.

The higher the rarity, the greater the stats, with some focussing more on a specific attribute area; broken down into power, accuracy, control, recovery or balanced.

In general, the pro signature specs are the best, giving a unique outlay of stats that match that golfer's technique - so look out for them when they pop up in the store!

PLAY LIKE THE PROS - Invest in legendary signature specs

You will need to buy specs in the store with Reward Points, which are earned by completing quests, with the legendary signature specs costing 18,000 Reward Points, with legendary specs costing 15,000.

As gaining Reward Points can be a bit of a grind, it is best to save up and go all-in for legendary and signature specs, instead of slowly upgrading your bag with uncommon, rare and epic specs.

Of course, it is a personal choice in how you want to upgrade your specs and it will change depending on your style, however, in general, you want to focus on the following boosts with each club:

  • Driver: Power
  • Wood: Power, accuracy and control
  • Irons & Wedges: Accuracy and control

You can also boost the specs of your ball, with power, accuracy and control all vital components. There are no specs for putters.
