There are a variety of choices you need to make to ensure that you have the best time possible golfing. Selecting the right club each shot requires knowing something about what kind of shot you want, as well as your game. Each of the clubs in anyone’s bag has a specific function.
Long approach shots are the domain of the woods. While the driver is typically used from the tees, woods are used for longer fairway shots and tee shots that require more accuracy. Although these were first made of their namesake, more modern materials like titanium or other composites are used today.
Wedges are used to make short, soft shots. There are several varieties of wedges including the sand wedge designed for shots from the rough or bunkers and lob wedges, which creates a short, high shot. There are companies that even offer other wedges with different degrees of loft.
Irons are commonly used for approach shots to the greens. Irons cover a wide range of distances, so it is important to understand how far you can hit each particular iron – you don’t want to pull a 5 iron from your bag when an 8 will do the trick! Irons are versatile and can be used not only from the fairway, but also from the rough, or any other predicament you find yourself in!
Of course, the object of the game is to get to the green and once there the putter is the club that helps golfers to finish the hole. These usually have a short shaft and flat face designed to roll the ball along the green. While putters are commonly used for putting on the green itself, they can be used to get out of bunkers as well.
