Tips For Buying Irons
How Many Clubs Do I Buy?
This may seem a fairly elementary question but actually there are many options when it comes to deciding exactly which individual clubs you buy. The most common set of irons is from a 3 iron to a pitching wedge (PW). Many better players may choose to buy 2 to 9 iron and leave room to add specialist wedges. The 2 iron will offer them an extra bit of length on their longest iron and another club to use on the tee. A slightly weaker player or older player may decide to choose 5 iron to SW, the reason being that they will leave room for fairway woods and utility clubs in their bag in place of the longer irons, whilst using wedges provided by the set.
Demo days where manufacturers offer all golfers the chance to try out all their latest equipment and get advice on specifications and any other questions you might have. Some demo days even have custom fitting trucks with computer analysis equipment to analyse you swing and build you a club to order there and then Golf drivers are the equipment that everyone gets excited about as there is nothing better than hitting a 300 yard driver down the middle of the fairway. Although, if you're new to golf then it may be worth skipping this bit for a while and start with a 3 wood which has more loft and is easier to hit straight.
Virtually all golf driver heads contain titanium. This is a very strong and lightweight metal material that is perfect for creating golf drivers. The driver head is probably the most important part of a driver, followed by the shaft and then the grip. Most drivers have graphite shafts as they are lighter than steel shafts and can help generate more club head speed.
