What golf clubs should I try to get to complete a beginner’s set?
I have just started learning to play golf, and was recently given a golf bag and some old clubs. I was given 3 through 9 irons, a PW and a putter. What do I need other than a driver? Do I need a 3 wood or a SW? Also, how is the best way to go about getting old clubs that are good for beginners?
You probably don’t need much more than a driver to complete your set for now. As you start playing more, you can begin looking for more specialized clubs like fairway woods and/or hybrids or wedge sets.
You may wish to sign up for a couple newsletters from discount online retailers like RockBottomGolf.com. In addition to being entered in a weekly contest for free merchandise, these newsletters can keep you informed of new products, special discounts, and giveaways that sweeten the deal when you’re ready to buy.
Best of luck!
What golf clubs to buy for a 14 year old boy?
It seems there arent many golf clubs for that age group. Ladies golf clubs would be a fine fit, but this is for a boy. Is it best just to buy a regular set and instruct him to grip it quite low?
Have a local shop fit him.
It doesn’t have to be a real expensive set.
Doesn’t cost any more for a custom fit.
You can fit him so they last a couple of years. If you have to cut them down make sure it’s to a length that will last a year or more.
Standard length clubs work for a person as short as 5’8″
When he reaches his final height then buy him a better set fit to match him.
What does a good set of golf clubs include?
My husband wants to take up golf and is looking for a set of clubs. Which clubs–irons, woods and putters, and sizes–should he start off with?
Everyone suggesting a 3 or 4 iron, may be a little way off base, honestly. A beginning golfer isn’t going to generate enough clubhead speed to be able to succesfully hit a 3 iron.. Or possible a 4 iron..
An idea set makeup for a beginner would consist of:
Driver – 11.5 degress of loft.. No less. Loft = more carry distances.. Higher loft = helps negate any sidespin..
Woods = Avoid the #3 Wood.. Most beginners honestly cannot hit the #3 wood.. Most of them are tall faced and are hard to hit from the fairway lies.. I would go with a #4 (17 degrees) or a #5 (19 degrees) for your first long fairway wood.
Irons : Alot of sets today go 4-PW.. A decade or more ago.. It was 3-PW..
What is happening is lofts are being jacked up, for longer distances.. At least the manufacturers are claiming this..
Todays 4 iron has the same loft as a 3 iron from ten years ago. As a beginner I would avoid a set of irons that has a 3 iron.. And possible a 4 iron. This is where hybrids come in for your #3 and #4 iron replacements. I would go with a #3 and #4 hybrid for your long irons. They are easier to hit than the traditional #3 and #4 irons. Next, you would start your traditional irons at the #5 through the PW (pitching wedge).
Add a SW (sand wedge ) and putter.. And you have a good makeup for a beginners set.
The reason I do not suggest the GW (gap wedge) and the LW (lob wedge) are:
LW is a tricky club to hit, due to bounce angle of the club.
Also, I do not suggest a GW due to its really an unnecessary addtion to the total number of clubs you need. What happens is, you get confused on club selection, due to so many clubs in the bag. You can achieve the same distance of the GW, by using only a 3/4 swing with a pitching wedge (PW). As a beginner.. You want to make golf fun.. Not more confusing by having so many clubs to choose from.
So.. To sum it up:
Driver – 11.5 degrees, Regular flex shaft, graphite
5W – 19 degress, Regular flex shaft, graphite
#3 & #4 Hybrids – 21 and 24 degress, Regular flex shaft, steel
#5-PW & SW – Regular flex shaft, steel
Avoid shafts that are labeled as “High bend point” or “High kick point”. These produce a low trajectory and are not really ideal for a high handicapper / beginner.
Look for a “Low kick point” or “Low bend point” for your shafts.
How can I make adjusting to shorter golf clubs easier?
I’m kind of new to golf, I’ve been at it for only a year. This christmas I received a new set of golf clubs, and all my irons are about an inch shorter than my old set. Other than obviously hitting the driving range, is there anything else I can specifically do to make this process easier or faster? Anything that I’d have to change with my swing? I’m usually topping the ball right now and its frustrating. Any advice or tips? Thanks
If you are not sure if your clubs are the right length you should speak to your local pro and they will be able to advice you on your concerns.
