Golf clubs are a golfer’s best friend, and you can bet that their clubs are somwhere nearby. Clubs are available in a range of sizes to suit any player, from standard to midsize, and even oversized. Over 400 golf clubs are submitted each year for rulings as to their eligibility for use. Club makers make their revenue marketing clubs to amateur golfers, and the fact is that high-tech golf clubs are largely recognized by the established player as advancing their game. All authorized golf clubs are subjected to being audited by the USGA, regardless of whether there is a compliance concern or not.
Irons are clubs with a flat angled face and a shorter shaft than a wood, intended for shots planned for the green or from more formidable lies such as the rough, through or over trees, or the base of hills. Irons are the most multifaceted clubs in the bag, allowing polished players to hit a variety of different shots with the same club. They customarily range from numbers 1 to 9, with lower numbered irons having lower lofts. Irons are generally used when you are less than 200 yards out from the green. They are the strength of your golf gear and the decision you make is essential to your enjoyment of the sport. Forged iron golf clubs are an alternative as your expertise and skill increases.
Woods, sometimes called metal woods, are long-distance clubs, meant to drive the ball a great distance down the fairway in the direction of the hole. If a hole is 450 yards from tee to green, most golfers use a wood to hit off the tee. The Driver has the lowest loft of any golf club. You’ll find that many players have 3 and 5 woods in their bag. They are used to hit long shots. Players use drivers and fairway woods generally when they are more than 200 yards out from the green.
Putters are a special class of clubs with a loft not exceeding ten degrees, designed primarily to roll the ball forward through the grass, generally from a point on the putting green towards the cup. Putters have a very low loft and usually a short shaft, intended to ‘push’ and roll the ball instead of hitting it up into the air. The short game has always been called the most important part of the game, with the putter being referred to as the most important club in your arsenal.
Hybrid golf clubs are made for situations when you desire the length of a long iron, but you’d hit the ball too far with a wood. Considering that hybrid golf clubs are much easier to hit than a long iron with the same loft, almost all hybrid golf clubs are intended to substitute for the long irons 2-, 3-, and 4-. Hybrid golf clubs are a must for any ordinary player looking to improve their game. Hybrid golf clubs are largely designed for distance, control, and accuracy.
