What are the golf clubs needed for a beginner?
It is vital for you to understand the “weapons arsenal” of golf clubs and the importance of each one. Even though the diversity in golf clubs might come forth as confusing to beginners, you will be needing all of them on the course since they diversified by their actual use. The rules state that you cannot carry more than 14 clubs in your bag. Please note that you are not forbidden to carry fewer than 14 golf clubs, only that 14 is the limit.
The best golf club drivers for beginnersA driver, also known as the #1 wood is the club you will usually use to tee off. For beginners, we recommend using a high-lofted driver, with the lof t being between 10° and 13°. Basically, high loft angle allows novice golfers to achieve the more distance and air time. Furthermore, you should aim for drivers with a larger club face which inadvertently increases the size of the “sweet spot”. In combination with higher loft, large club faces prevent swaying and sliced balls that often happen to beginners.
Fairway woodsA fairway wood is ideal for long fairway shots but can also be used (if needed) for a hit off the tee. For those that are still in learning process a 5-wood or even a 7-wood is going to be the best because of the high loft. Similar to drivers, high loft in fairway woods gives you more air time and adds more space to your shots. They differ from drivers with having a low center of gravity which in return generates backspin. Backspin is important as it will counteract with the slightly missed shots giving the ball a straight trajectory.
HybridsHybrids are, as you have naturally assumed, a crossbreed between two types of golf clubs. Between woods and irons, to be more specific. The club head is “taken off” a wood (although somewhat smaller) and the shaft resembles that of an iron club. This combination allows golfers to have the best of both worlds with stability that neither wood nor iron clubs have. Even though hybrids obviously have their purpose on the course, a beginner does not require more than two in his bag. One of the hybrid clubs should have the loft around 20° while the other is best suited around 24°.
Irons and wedges for beginnersIrons are basically the most versatile type of golf clubs therefore it comes as no wonder that they occupy the most amount of places even in a pro’s golf bag. Irons are used in an array of different occasions, ranging from teeing off (on smaller courses) to rescuing a ball from a hazard. We recommend three iron clubs for beginners and you can easily memorize those by their odd numbers: 5-iron, 7-iron, and 9-iron. Without getting too far of the subject with explaining the numbers on irons, you should know that the lower numbered irons for beginners are much more difficult to hit correctly and are rarely used nowadays. Wedges are similar to the best irons, but they are actually clubs made to get you out of trouble. With higher loft than irons, they are perfect for getting the ball vertical and out of tight spots. You should aim for a golf club set that has a wedge marked P or PW meaning pitched wedge that is excellent for short shots. Also, you might want to carry a sand wedge whose rubber sole allows you to pluck the ball right out of the sand.
PuttersPutters mark the endgame in golf, and are perhaps the most difficult to master. You cannot have a golf club set without a putter, but choosing the right one is not really simple. Even though all putters share certain characteristics such as a flat club face and low loft, it all comes down to personal preference. The length and weight of the putter are the main factor when it comes to “feeling” the ball while putting, but it will take experience to know the right one. Just because this golf club type is so prone to subjectivity, we recommend that beginners should start by testing several different putters before choosing one. Our list of what golf clubs you should look in a golf club set suggests that learners should carry around 10 golf clubs, but keep in mind that the limit is 14 and you are more than encouraged to experiment. Bear in mind that long irons are easily replaceable by hybrids (something the pros have been doing for a while) while higher-lofted irons can replace woods. You will probably find out that you are by default more adept at playing with a certain type and the set should meet your style and preferences. Remember that fewer golf clubs means more practice with each one and less time spent thinking about the correct club rather than having fun on the golf course.
How to take care of your golf club set?There are quite a bit of tips and tricks about taking care of a golf club set, but we have deiced to higlight those that have been tested and have proven themselves to be worthy.
- Always store golf clubs inside (your home preferably) as oppose to garages or cars where they can be affected by heat or humidity.
- Headcovers are importnant. Maybe not as much for irons, but definitely use a headcover for putters and other fragile clubs.
- Wiping the golf after each shot is a great idea – just think of them as fine japanese kitchen knives.
- Warm water, soap and a fine brush are all you should use to wash clubfaces in order to avoid damaging.
- Check your clubs for worn areas, dents and similar damage markers. It is much better to react in time than let a worn-out grip ruin your game.
- Remeber that rain is not a friend of golf. Wipe the clubs thoroughly to avoid rusting.
