Golf Clubs For Ladies

Dec 29, 2007
Before you go to the 1st tee, be aware that there is a rule which specifies that a competitor may only carry 14 clubs in their golf bag. Which clubs, will depend upon how you intend to play, the course and the weather conditions.

Now you have to be able to decide which club to use and when. When trying to decide the length of the shot, you also need to be aware of the hight the ball will travel - this is called as the loft.

Most clubs can be identified by a number on the sole and a 7 iron will not hit as far as a 4 iron. Each club has it component parts. The rubber grip which can be any color, the shaft which is made out of either graphite or steel, and the club head which can be made of steel, tungsten or other alloys.

There are 3 types of clubs:-

* A Wood

* Irons

* The Putter

THE WOOD

Woods originally got their name because the club head was made from wood. Today with new technology, club heads are made of many different types of alloys, steel or sometimes tungsten.

* Ladies woods can be anything from 1 though 15.

* Ladies use a No.1 club or driver from the tee.

* Most ladies use the 3,4,5,7, or 9 woods from the fairway.

* Some shots require a high loft from a poor lie and numbers 11, 13 and 15 woods can be used here.

IRONS

Sets of Irons are numbered from 1 to 9 and are usually have club heads made from metal or alloys. The higher the number on the club the less distance the ball will travel. For example a 4 iron will hit the ball further than a 7 iron.

Pitching and sand wedges are also irons. These wedges have the highest loft and are generally used to escape from trouble such as bunkers or obsticles when fast height or stopping the ball quickly is a requirement.

PUTTERS

Putters, on which there is very little loft, are generally used on or just off the green when the ground is smooth and firm. There is a vast range of putters available to the golfer giving wide choice of shapes, weights and sizes. In fact there is no right or wrong putter and you should choose whichever give you the best results.

HYBRID OR RESCUE CLUBS

The hybrid or rescue club as it has become known is a combination of the wood and iron, and is a big hit with lady golfers. Mostly it is used as a distance club, being more forgiving than a wood off the fairway. It has quickly become a standard part of the range of ladies clubs.

CARE OF CLUBS

There is nothing more irritating than clanking clubs on a course, and head covers are available to prevent woods banging against other clubs and stop damage. It sensible to dry off woods when they are wet and that any mud, grass or sand is cleared away from the grooves.

Soap and water can be used to wash rubber grips when they become dirty. Shinny grips are no use and do need to be changed, this can be done by your club professional.

CHOOSING YOUR CLUBS

When you choose clubs there is a vast array available to you, but the most important thing is that you are comfortable and confident with them. There are lots of different brands claiming to do everything for you, but in the end its a personal choice.

After making the decision to buy new clubs you should try to find a seller where you are allowed to try out the types of clubs which you are considering purchasing.

You do not need to buy irons and woods of the same type or from the same manufacturer. Nor do you need to buy them all at the same time. Many players add different clubs at a later date, and buying a complete set is not always the best solution.

Give some consideration to leaving out the purchase of a driver, which is not necessary when you are first starting. To start with you could choose a 3 or 5 wood. Also choosing a half set of irons to get some experience is a good idea. More can be added at a later date.
