Golf Clubs - How To Choose The Right Golf Clubs

Jul 8, 2008
With so many golf clubs out there, deciding which one to choose can be a tough decision. Here are some tips on how to narrow down the selection.

- Choose your levels of playing
Some play the weekend game and there are others who would like to move up in the ranks. If you prefer occasional game, a low to mid performance club will be ldeal for you.

- Set a budget
The notion that the more priced the club, the better it is simply does not hold water anymore. If you read review and also do a lot of research, you will definitely find a club that will meet your requirement. Do not be afraid to check out used clubs as they can give you the best chances of getting the club you need at a good price.

Now that you know your interest level and have established a budget, here is a brief run-through of kinds of golf clubs and what each one does.

Woods
Normally, a golfer's bag will contain a driver (called 1-wood) and bunch of fairway woods (3- and/or 5-wood). A driver is the longest club (usually 45 inches) making it the toughest to control during a swing.

Irons
Irons feature thin clubheads with grooves on it. The more skillful prefer a blade style iron while beginners get a cavity-back style. A blade-style has a clubhead with a full back, whereas a cavity backs clubhead is hollow~. It is hollowed out to create a perimeter weighting effect helpful for less-experienced golfers.

Irons are categorized as long (1, 2, 3,4), mid- (5,6,7) and short (8,9). Short irons are the easiest to hit while the long ones are the hardest. The shorter the iron, the more loft there is and for beginners, the more loft, the better.

Putters
Putters are the clubs most often used in the game and come in clubhead styles of blade, heel-toe and mallet. Lengths come in belly putters, standard and broomstick (long) putters. Which one to choose will be your personal preference.

Utility clubs/hybrids
The utility clubs or hybrid has a blend of woods and irons and more suited for rookie who may not want to buy too many clubs from the start.

And finally, a word of caution, before you take the club out of the store you should check making sure they fit your height because most new clubs fit individuals at an average height of 5'10 for men and 5'5 for women. If you are notably shorter or taller than the average height, you should order for club fitted to your height.

Start off with these tips to build on your research when choosing your golf clubs. The game becomes that much more fun with the little effort you make now.
