Golf is not a complicated game. You place the ball; you get a club and you try to sink the ball in the hole. However, things with golf get complicated when you see a player’s stand bag. You see not one, not two, not three but a bunch of golf clubs in different forms, sizes and different heads.
The hitting part of the club, by the way, is called a clubhead. It is also crucial to learn more about the parts of a golf club before buying a club set.
Anyway, let’s talk about the five types of golf clubs.
These clubs have the biggest clubhead made of wood. Hence the name, wood. Players use these clubs for the longest shots, tee shots or strokes. So, they are the first club players use to get the ball closer or in the hall.
Wood clubs are also called drivers while others consider the two differ from each other. But all in all, these clubs are the one you use for tee shots.
Iron clubs have grooves in them that adds extra spin on a ball. Iron clubs enable players to make a shot with better accuracy with the spin. So, this club is perfect for short shots. When you need to get the perfect shot calculation to send the ball home, go with an iron.
Hybrids are considered the new kid on the block among the other clubs. It did not exist as long as the others. But that does not mean it’s obsolete. Hybrids are perfect if you want finesse with your airborne shots.
That is difficult with other clubs by the way. With hybrids, you also get to lower the chances of mishits. Also, you get better swing control.
There are different kinds of wedges used in particular golf situations. You get the gap, sand, lob and pitching. Each wedge club has a particular advantage.
The unique feature of a wedge is the bounce. You need this when your ball lands on the sand or turf. This club allows players to hit balls in challenging surfaces much easier.
The coolest of all clubs probably with its complicated but well-executed design. The putter is of course for putting. Just like with wedge, the putter is sub-divided into two, the blade (smaller clubhead) and mallet (bigger clubhead).
With this information at hand you will be able to buy your very own golf club set and head for your nearest golf course to tee off.
