All about Different Golf Club Components

Jul 22, 2008
A golf club is made up of many different parts. Each of these parts or components, has evolved over time with technology. This article to show you each area of the club and its effect on the game.

1. The Club Head

The head is the part of the golf club components that makes contact with the ball. If it is for a club referred to as a wood then this particular golf club component will be a large piece with an angled front and an area of mass behind that surface that creates energy to allow the ball to travel far.

The golf club head is the component that makes contact with the ball. It has a large flat surface which is the area the ball is expected to contact on, and often has a large wooden area behind the shaft. The other kind of head is the iron and has a more angled area, but is a thing solid piece of metal designed to lift the ball.

2. The Shaft

There are two versions of the component the golf club shaft. The older style, for traditional version, known as the metal and the newer, normally more flexible black version, which is the graphite design.

The metal shaft is heavier and designed to be very stiff. Some players prefer this they believe it gives the player more control over the swing. The graphite shaft moves more than the metal design allows during the swing and this can give some golfers more distance on their shots. Some players also believe it gives more accuracy from the Tee.

There is traditionally more metal shafts based clubs than graphite versions available, out there. As the advances in technology lower the costs, and players try the graphite shaft it becomes and more popular. I think we can see less metal versions in the future.

3. The Golf club Grip

At the top of the shaft where you hand on to the club, has a grip. The grip has not changed for many years. It has traditionally been a simple rubber grip pieced with small holes to allow it to breath.

Very little focus has been placed on the part of the club, but in recent years, a thicker stronger grip is becoming available. With any grip, as soon as it becomes worn smooth it needs to be replaced to ensure you have a good hold on the club, for safety.

The golf components are simple overall. At the same time advances in technology and design for those who have a passion for the game, will bring need materials and design versions to be tested by the pros and hopefully result in an improved more enjoyable game.
