Popular Types of Golf Clubs

By David Andrews Subscribe to RSS | February 23rd 2012 | Views:

Usually, golf clubs are composed of a shaft with a grip and a club head. There are six major types of golf clubs that are used widely by golfers. Each golf club is designed for a specific type of shot. If you are a beginner, you need to know more about the different types of golf clubs to play the shots effectively. The major difference between the various golf clubs is the size and shape of their heads, the length and the loft.

Some popular types of golf clubs with their features are listed below:


Woods are used for long-distance fairway or tee shots to send a golf ball sailing several hundred yards with a single swing. They are the longest golf clubs with large club heads, spherical shape and flattened bottom. In the earlier days, wood heads were made of wood, but modern woods are made of steel or titanium. They are most often used for the longest shots ranging from 200 to 300 yards.


Usually, irons are used for hitting shots from the fairway to green. Irons are available in a wide range of variety from low numbered to high numbered irons. Low numbered irons are used to hit a ball nearly as far as a wood, while high numbered irons are used to hit the ball high for a short distance.


Hybrids are a cross between a fairway wood and a long iron. Hybrids have large heads and more mass than an iron. Using hybrids, golfers can hit the ball higher and farther than irons. Nowadays, hybrids are replacing long irons in most golfer’s bags. Due to its hybrid design, golfers can hit shots more easily than irons.


Wedges are similar to irons but are used most often for short-distance play. There are different types of wedges such as pitching wedges, sand wedges, lob wedges and more, each designed for a specific short-distance shot.


Putters are usually used to play the ball on the green. They are available in a wide range of head shapes and shaft lengths.

These are some popular types of golf clubs that are used widely while playing golf. When you start your golf club shopping in a golf shop, you need to check out the shaft and club head properly to determine the quality of the golf club. Remember, you need to play a wide range of shots like drives, chips, long approach shots, pitches, short approach shots, sand shots and putts, so choose the best golf clubs and start to play effectively.
