For the novice golfer, choosing which golf clubs to buy can be a little overwhelming. There are so many brands, different types, and so many options. The best way to decide which golf clubs to get is to start by narrowing down your own personal preferences. This will give you more of an idea of which ones you like as well as helping you decide which type is best for your game.
A golf club is simply a club utilized to hit a ball with at a course. Each club is made up of a head, a shaft, and a grip. The shaft is the handle or part that you hold onto when swinging. The grip is the part that does the swinging. As mentioned before, many golfers choose not to use any other accessories on their clubs except for the shaft.
The first thing you should consider is how much loft you are looking to hit. If you plan on long shots and hitting huge grounders, you’ll want to have a much longer club shaft length. Some golf clubs offer extra length at a premium price. These are called driving range only clubs and will likely do the job for you.
You will also need to decide between iron and wood. Iron clubs are lighter and more flexible. They can be used for all golf shots from pitching and chipping to long distance drives and driver shots. Wood clubs are heavier and generally are reserved for shots over 100 yards. Many golfers will use an iron or wood for all of their shots but there are some exceptions.
For beginners, I recommend investing in some low cost irons, preferably metal irons, that you can use for practice and the occasional game. You can find these at most golf stores for around $50. Once you have the equipment, you can start to think about upgrading to more expensive clubs. Your budget will determine what club set, you will go with.
Beginners tend to like the steel grip golf drivers. These are great for getting up and down the greens quickly and for improving your swing speed. When you are first starting out, you need to learn how to strike the ball with confidence and control so you can make consistent and reliable contact. Steel clubs can help you achieve this. But keep in mind that they have a tendency to give you more bounce than other clubs and are not as forgiving. Many golfers who are just starting to play the game, opt for the softer flex irons like the hybrid putters.
Beginners tend to like the seven-iron, although the new hybrids are also gaining in popularity. The seven-iron is the most popular of the hybrid clubs. The seven-iron is still used by many golfers to improve their game but many also use the hybrid irons as well. The seven-iron still does a good job of creating consistent distance, especially for beginners.
Long irons are becoming more popular because they create a great amount of distance consistently. The long irons are ideal for beginners. But don’t be surprised if you see more of them used by advanced golfers. The long irons do have a higher degree of loft, which creates more spin. Many golfers choose the seven-iron and hybrids to add distance to their games.
As mentioned above, beginners should stay away from the hybrids and the seven-irons. There are plenty more options for beginners to choose golf clubs based on their level of ability. You will want to look at the different types of irons and the shaft loft. The difference between the different types of clubs is the loft angle. The loft angle refers to the angle created by the shaft while swinging.
Choosing golf clubs based on your handicap is important because it will help you find clubs that will work well for you. The best way for beginners to find out which clubs work well for them is to spend some time looking at professional golfers. If there are certain types of clubs that tend to work better for one player than another, you can try those clubs out. You might even be able to find some tips from your golfing buddies. They are usually more than willing to share what they know about their own game with others.
However, if you are just starting out and simply want to play around on the course, then you will probably be better off with a lower lofted clubs. These will allow you to hit longer drives and will allow you to hit longer shots. Therefore, if you are an intermediate golfer or someone who has never held a full-size club in his or her hand, then you will probably be able to get the most benefit from a lower lofted clubs.
