Learn more about the clubs in your bag before making your selection:
- Get the flight and distance you need off the tee with the right golf driver. Select from standard, midsize and oversized clubheads and a variety of innovative materials, including titanium. Drivers are available in many lofts, typically between 8 and 15 degrees for men and 10 and 15 for women.
- Fairway woods have a higher loft than your driver, with a smaller profile that can be used from the tee for directional control to the fairway for better distance than a long iron. These clubs are typically built from graphite.
- Your irons are used for hosts of less than 200 yards. Traditional iron sets are comprised of eight irons—three through nine irons and a pitching wedge. Choose from game improvement or player irons.
- Hybrids are the transition club in your bag, moving you between woods and irons. They are easier to hit than a long iron, with a low profile, wide sole and lower center of gravity. Try substituting hybrids in place of your harder-to-hit irons.
- Your golf putter is available in blade, mallet and alignment clubhead designs. Three to four degrees of loft provides smooth roll and limited skidding.
Determine your ability level before selecting your clubs. Golfers are generally divided into three categories, based on ability levels: low handicap, mid handicap and high handicap. Your handicap is your performance against the par on a course, usually in relation to a par 72 course.
- Low Handicap Golfers should opt for a driver and at least one fairway wood, most likely the 3-wood. These players can benefit from lower irons in their bag.
- Mid Handicap Golfer might try a driver, a three-wood and a 5-wood for better control and consistency than harder-to-hit long irons. For irons, try a pitching wedge and irons 3 through 9.
- High Handicap Golfers may opt to play without the driver in their bag. Instead, try a 3-wood.
