Wilson Matrix Golf Club Set Review

These days, Wilson focuses a lot more on making golf club sets than it does on making tour-caliber specialty clubs like they used to.

But one man’s loss is another man’s gain. While Wilson may not be the go-to brand for scratch golfers anymore, beginners and high handicappers have a lot to gain from using their clubs.

Particularly their complete sets. Wilson complete golf club sets are known for being forgiving and focusing on the needs of beginners and high handicappers. The only problem is that Wilson makes a lot of these types of packaged sets.

So it’s hard to believe that every single one of them is worthwhile. But my goal is to help you separate the chaff from the wheat. To that end, I have tested and reviewed the Wilson Matrix golf club set. Is it worth your time and money? Read on to find out.

Wilson Matrix First Impressions

“The first thing that struck me about the Wilson Matrix golf clubs as I unboxed them was their size.”

I have tested a handful of Wilson package sets in the past and almost all of them feature oversized clubs. With the Wilson Matrix set, I felt like the profiles of the clubs were a bit more moderate – especially the fairway and the hybrid. That’s not to say that these clubs are tiny; but they are not quite as oversized as some other Wilson offerings.

Who is the Wilson Matrix Golf Club Set Best for?

“Wilson has come out publicly and stated that the Wilson Matrix set is designed for beginner golfers.”

The set is bereft of fancy features and confusing technology. Instead, the designs are basic and typical of GI clubs. For instance, the irons have a cavity back design which is proven to increase forgiveness. Even the price of this set is congenial to beginners.

What Comes in the Set?


“The Wilson Matrix golf club set includes a 460cc titanium composite driver.”

The driver is 10.5° and includes a reinforced graphite shaft. The titanium construction keeps weight down. I felt like the Wilson Matrix driver was actually increasing my club head speed and the launch  monitor data confirmed that feeling.

It produces a mid-high launch and has an expansive sweet spot. It gives off a crisp, metallic crack at impact. I found myself falling into a groove with this driver after just a few swings.

3 Wood

“The 3 wood has a surprisingly compact profile.”

It still looks pretty chunky behind the ball but it also looks sleek and nimble at the same time. I felt like I had really good control over the club head even when I swung outside of my shoes. This may have been thanks to the reinforced tip of the graphite shaft.

In any case, flight was exceptionally stable and I was even able to work the ball a little bit from left-to-right.


“The Wilson Matrix set includes a #4 hybrid.”

The hybrid has a traditional, squat profile which increases forgiveness from heel to toe. It’s not a great rescue club since the turf interaction is a bit rough and it struggles to mow down the taller grass. But it launches high and is very easy to hit.


“The Wilson Matrix set includes irons 5-SW.”

The irons have an oversized profile and are cast from 431 stainless steel. Even as cast irons, I liked their feel. When I mis-hit, I wasn’t seeing a huge increase in spin rates and the head seemed to resist twisting very well.

It kept my errant strikes stable so I had a lot of leeway. The soles are pretty wide which gives these irons a chunky look at address. The offset is also prominent. The cavity back design pushes mass to the perimeter to produce excellent forgiveness.

I really liked these irons and I think beginners and high handicappers are going to get along very well with them.


“The putter has a simple, 3-line alignment aid.”

This is an Anser-style putter and it’s pretty basic overall. It’s a little lighter than I like my putter to be but it may yet feel nice to beginners and high handicappers.

Set Composition

The woods in this set all come with reinforced graphite shafts while the irons and the putter have steel shafts. The irons are cast from 431 stainless steel which should make them very durable.

Final Assessment

“The Wilson Matrix is a solid golf club set with very few weaknesses.”

For a beginner that is. The fairway wood and the irons were especially impressive. Like a lot of Wilson golf club sets, the Wilson Matrix putter was underwhelming. But that is the only weakness in an otherwise solid set. The Wilson Matrix set is definitely worth your while if you are a beginner or 25+ handicapper.
