Golf Clubs

Whether you're new to golf or a seasoned pro with experience on the PGA Tour, the golf clubs you choose will have a major impact on your game and your enjoyment of it. The development of golf clubs has meant that amateurs and pros alike have been able to improve their games to levels that simply weren't possible decades ago. Knowing what golf equipment will best suit your purpose is one of the most important factors in determining how well you will ultimately play.

Does my choice of driver matter that much?

Your choice of driver is one of the most important decisions you'll make regarding golf clubs. There are real differences between drivers that can make a world of difference in your game. The most basic principle is that, despite what some might say, in golf, distance matters. Your driver is what's going to get your ball to your goal distance in the game. Some equipment designed for the best players can be extremely difficult to use for newbie players. For this reason, it is important to identify which equipment is best for your game.

What irons should I use?

Like drivers, irons are generally designed for players of specific skill levels and club speeds. It is important to correctly identify your own level of skill, including club control and swing speed, in order to ensure that you are buying clubs with the appropriate trade-offs. If you're not sure which irons are right for you, it may be effective to speak with an experienced golfer and even try out their clubs to get the appropriate feel and better understand what qualities you need.

Should I buy a set of clubs with hybrid woods?

Hybrids are a relatively new way to hit that can make long-distance hitting off the fairway dramatically easier than using pure woods. A hybrid can easily add 25 yards to your ground game, making a big difference on long par fours and par fives. While they may end up costing a little more, sets that contain hybrids often prove to be enormously helpful to most players' golf games.
