What is a Golf club?

To answer simply, it is a club that is used to hit a golf ball (I know you know that). Each golf club consists of three parts: grip, shape, and head. These three parts make a club perfect. Without any of these three, the golf club cannot be completed.

The grip is the part where you will hold the club. There is a smooth and soft material in the grip section that gives you the maximum comfort. The shaft section is to give the support to other sections. It also plays a vital role in hitting that perfect shot. The most important and crucial part of a golf club is its head section. The accuracy of a shot mostly depends on the construction of the head section, though the other parts help too.

Different types of golf club?

Best golf club 2016

 

There are different types of golf clubs on the market. Every manufacturing company makes a wide variety of clubs, each with their own special something in order to distinguish themselves from other manufacturers. It is a part of their business. But keep in mind that there are only five types of leading golf clubs, and they are Wood, Iron, Wedge, Hybrid and Putter types. But nowadays, there is one more golf club can be found in the golfer's bag. It is called a Chipper.

Wood

This kind of club is used to hit the ball a longer distance. And that is the main difference between wood type and others. It has a longer shaft. The head of this club is more rounded than others. So maybe you are thinking about its name. Initially, the head of this club was made of hardwood (generally persimmon).  Recently though manufacturers have transitioned to using a lightweight metal like titanium, or carbon fiber.

Iron

Best golf club 2016

 

Iron clubs are used to drive the golf ball towards to the hole. To say more accurately, this kind of club is used for taking shots that are less than 200 yards from the green. It does not have as long of a shaft or as large a  head as wood clubs. The iron club is numbered differently than the wood type. It is numbered 1-9. The 9 clubs have the highest level of loft. Irons are the most popular clubs. Most of the professional golfers usually keep 3 or4 irons (between 7 and11) in their bag, as USGA allows a bag to contain up to 14 clubs.

Wedge

These types of clubs have a higher loft than the numbered iron type. Wedges are designed in a way so that golfers can shoot air shots.  There are five types of wedges available. They are pitching wedge, gap wedge, sand wedge, lob wedge, and ultra lob wedge. Most of the professionals prefer the pitching wedge, and it is the only type of wedge that you will find in a club set.

Hybrid

best golf club 2016

 

Hybrid club is a combination of wood and iron. Hybrids have a launch distance like wood, and swing ability like irons. The header of this kind of club is similar to a wood type. They also have the similar loft and length like irons. Many golfers replace their iron clubs (generally the 3 and 4 irons) with the hybrid to have a better long distance with ease.

Putters

The putter is a club that is used to play shots in a short distance. It is just used to drive a golf ball to the hole nearby. It has a loft that doesn't exceed ten degrees. The grip of this kind of club may not be perfectly round.

Things to consider before buying the best golf club?

The putter is a club that is used to play shots in a short distance. It is just used to drive a golf ball to the hole nearby. It has a loft that doesn't exceed ten degrees. The grip of this kind of club may not be perfectly round.

Who are you?

The first thing you should discover is who you are. I mean you are not Tiger Woods. Hahaha, just kidding. Yes, it is very important to measure your skill. Don't go with eye-catching advertisements. They are just trying to sell their product to anyone who sees their ad. So at first test yourself. Are you a beginner, or expert? Or maybe you are an intermediate player. You may wonder what the fu** the intermediate player is! Intermediate players are those who have some experience in playing golf, but do not golf like a pro. That means they are the mid-level player, not the beginner or the expert.

What do you need?

There is five type of golf clubs, as I mentioned earlier. So, you need to decide what kind of club, and how many clubs you need. The standard format of the clubs is to have a set of three types of wood, eight irons, and a putter. But that does not mean it is the perfect set of clubs for you as well. You must decide if this kind of setup will meet your needs.

Check the grip, shaft, and head

Before you purchase, you should test the grip, shaft, and head very well. The perfection of a club depends on the construction of these parts. You should check the grip to see if it is convenient enough to hold. And while you are checking the shaft of a club, you should be very careful about its level. It is leveled like "A", "A or M", "S", "R", "X".

"L" is for Ladies.
"A" or M" is for the beginners or amateurs.
"S" stands for Strong.
"R" for the regular.
"X" means extra-strong.

If you are not an expert in golf, or just started to playing golf, I will suggest you go for the "A” or “M".

So you may ask why we have checked the grip, and shaft but not the head? Yep, actually, you cannot check the head unless you are an engineer. LOL!

What to buy, new or used?

Now this is the tough one to decide when you are planning to purchase a golf club or a set of a golf clubs. There are some advantages and disadvantages both for new and old clubs. The benefit of the used club is that they are cheaper than the new club. Also, there is a scope of bargaining with the seller. If the clubs are damaged somehow, you do not need to panic, as you can get another one for a low price. So, if you are new to golf, and do not play every day, you can buy the second-hand clubs. If you are planning to play with the clubs for a long time, then you can buy new from the market. 

What's your budget?

Budget is another confusing thing. You have to set a budget when you are going to buy anything, not only clubs. As with other golf equipment, the price of golf clubs is high. So, if you are going to take the game up as a profession, then you should buy the most durable, sustainable club. But they are damn expensive, so set your maximum price and stick to it.

Check the customer reviews

The easiest way to find the best golf club is to check the real customer reviews. As you have not bought the product before, you do not know anything other than whatever the company, or advertiser, is saying about it. The people who used that product already can give you exact feedback. So try to see the feedback from the real customers before purchasing.
