Any golf beginner is like a kid in the candy shop, excited to possess their own collection of golf clubs and accessories. But it is very important to understand the basics of golf clubs and then picking the ones that are best suited for you.Usually a set of 14 golf clubs is permitted for each player. This set comprises of a variety of Irons, Woods, Wedges, Hybrids and a Putter. You can create your own set by adding and dropping clubs that fit you the best, the usual combination is usually 3-5 wood, 9 Iron, a driver, wedges and some hybrids. Hybrids are a good choice for beginners as they are a mix of iron and woods, and hence lighter than heavy iron clubs.
As a beginner your swing may not be very powerful and hence you must choose clubs that are lighter. Light clubs will give more power to your swing. Once you have decided on your set combination, you need to make a choice between new and pre-owned clubs.
Depending on your budget, you can choose either. Pre-owned clubs could be a good choice for starters but eventually you will have to move to a new set of golf clubs.
Next get a dozen golf balls, any popular brand like Taylormade, Nike, Callaway or Titleist would do. With your choice of golf club set and dozen golf balls you are ready to start and practice. Practice diligently as that will not only help you improve your game but also increase your comfort level with golf clubs.
