Choosing The Right Golf Clubs

Sep 8, 2008
There are so many clubs and so many brands on offer, which can make a decision about buying clubs tricky, so here are a few considerations to help you wind your way through the huge commercial maze that the golf equipment world has become.

Some people can only play on weekends and others want to spend every spare hour moving up the club ranking list. If you're the type that would consider themselves a casual golfer, it is quite sufficient to choose a set of clubs of low-to medium-class performance.

The high-performance clubs are intended more for golfers who play very regularly and want to squeeze that little extra edge from the club, because in the end only small amounts of added edge can be gained by buying the most expensive clubs available. If you think that is not the case imagine having the best set of clubs available and playing Tiger Woods who only has one old beat up iron, equipment or skill?

The idea that the more expensive golf clubs are, the better the quality can no longer be maintained. If you do your homework right and read reports, you will find the right golf clubs to suit your level of interest. Do not choose clubs just because they are from the same people who manufactured your watch, that does not in any way make them higher quality.

The irons are characterized by narrow club heads with long grooves. Experienced players opt to use a massive steel club heads (blade style), while beginners with a rather hollow steel club (cavity-back style). The blade-style has a full head while the back is just a hollow cavity and thus lighter.

The long irons are 1, 2, 3, and 4; while 5, 6, 7 are medium-sized irons and the short irons are 8.9. The shorter the club, the easier the iron is to handle, with the long irons you need a lot of strength and or skill in order to dominate the club. The shorter the club, the higher the angle of the club head.

The Putter
Putter are the clubs that are the most used during an average round of golf, they are made of iron, aluminum or even titanium, and are produced in various forms such as the oldest type known as the blade, then there is the peripheral-weighted putter which is more commonly referred to as the Ping-Answer and lastly the mallet headed putter, which is usually just called a mallet.

In the end fine quality clubs are available for those who take the sport seriously and for those who just enjoy the odd round for relaxation the equipment is also available without the added costs.
