There is an entity known as the USGA or the United States Golf Association. This group determines the rules of golf, including the number of golf clubs that can be used in a round of golf. This limit is fourteen golf clubs. Normally, the standard golfer would have one driver, one putter, three wedges, seven irons, and two fairway woods in their golf bag. The combination of golf clubs is as varied as there are golfers. Hybrid golf clubs have begun replacing some of the longer golf irons and fairway woods in the golf bag.
The golfer has the choice of 2 primary types of golf club irons. For the more experienced golfer, forged irons are mad for precision and enable easier shaping of shots for draws and fades. Cavity-backed golf irons have a larger sweet spot and are more forgiving on off-center shots, providing straighter shots. A set of golf irons consisting of 2 through 9, a sand wedge and a pitching wedge, would range in price from $250 to over $1,500. Discount golf irons can provide great savings and are sometimes referred to as knockoff golf irons or clone golf irons.
Always test the clubs out before purchasing them. You never know how they will feel to you. Sometimes the shaft is too thick or too narrow for your grip, making it difficult to hold the clubs comfortably. Remember that the grips are something that can easily be changed. Most avid golfers need to replace the grips yearly. Men's golf clubs are designed to fit men whose height is 5' 10". If your height varies considerably from this standard you may need to get your clubs customized. Club fitting is getting clubs custom sized to your specific needs. A golf pro helps determine your measurements.
There are many choices out there ranging from the traditional to the ergonomic. The easiest to line up and use to start with is the traditional putter. Choose one that feels good in your hands. Swing the clubs before you buy them. Many golf shops offer practice swinging areas where you can actually try out the clubs to evaluate them before making a choice.
