Golf is one of the world's most famous sports and a favourite pastime for millions of people around the world. In order to improve, you need to have the correct gear before going on to the course. The most important piece of equipment to have is, of course, a set of golf clubs and ensuring they are the right style and comfort you is crucial to improving your game. Golf clubs can be bought singularly or in a set, whichever suits the buyer best.
Over the years, many brands have become famous for the high-quality golf clubs, clothing and other equipment they produce. Callaway, Ping and TaylorMade are some of the most popular brands due to their lightweight, high-performance clubs that offer comfort and help to improve your game.
Depending on your preference, it is important that you know what material the golf club is made from. For example, if you are looking to buy a driver, most clubs are made of stainless steel or titanium. Titanium is more lightweight than stainless steel, often with larger heads and more sweet spots, however, it does not look as traditional.
As well as drivers and other woods, there are also hundreds of different styles of irons and wedges. As you are only allowed to have up to 14 clubs in your bag, each club has to be tailored to your game. Often, players with a higher handicap require fewer woods than those who do not play as much. You should come equipped with a pitching wedge, sand wedge and a lob/approach wedge, as well as whichever irons you deem necessary for your style of play.
Before buying your clubs it is imperative that you know about their features as they can help to make or break your game. Beginner players may want more flex in their club than experienced golfers. Uniflex clubs will often allow you to hit the ball perfectly most of the time, assuming your swing is good enough!
