The Most Important Club In My Golf Bag
The one club in your bag that contributes to your score more than any other club is the putter.
Most amateur golfers do not take putting practice (and chipping) as serious as their driving and iron play.
What clubs should I have in my bag?
9 Golf Clubs That Should Always Be In Your Bag
- Three-Wood. If part of a family, the three-wood would be the younger brother to the driver.
- Five-Wood. 350 yards.
- Three-Hybrid. Not an iron, but not a wood, a hybrid is a mixture of the two and quite often a club I never take out of the bag.
- Irons 9-5.
- Pitching Wedge.
- Sand Wedge.
- Lob Wedge.
What clubs should a beginner have in the bag?
That’s why finding the right set of golf clubs for a beginner is so important. The best beginner sets have at least one driver, two woods, one putter, one hybrid, two wedges and seven irons.

How many clubs can you have in your bag?
Is a 5 hybrid the same as a 5 iron?
Take a fairway wood, hybrid and 5-iron all of the same loft and the fairway will be the easiest and most forgiving to launch from the turf, because the wider head shape means the centre of gravity is furthest from the face, which is why if you’re a fan of fairway woods it makes them a seriously good option.
Is a 5 wood easier to hit than a 3 wood?
The only time you should hit a 3-wood off the fairway is when you can reach the green. The 3-wood is the hardest club to hit off the fairway, so using it to just advance the ball is crazy. Hit your 5-wood instead. The 5-wood has more loft, so it’s easier to get the ball in the air.
Do pros use hybrids?
Advantages of Hybrids
Many pros have discovered that from 210 to 240 yards a hybrid is better than a 1-iron, 2-iron or 3-iron, since it enables them to hit the ball higher and land it more softly on the green. Hybrids sometimes replace fairway woods as well as long irons.
What is a golfer’s handicap?
A golf handicap is a numerical measure of a golfer’s potential ability. In stroke play, it is used to calculate a net score from the number of strokes played during a competition, thus allowing players of different proficiency to play against each other on somewhat equal terms.
Should a beginner golfer use a driver?
Every golfer’s bag should include a driver, or #1 wood. Beginners should use a driver with plenty of loft, which helps lift the ball higher in the air. Look for a loft of at least 10.5° and as much as 13°. Unless you’ve got uncommon clubhead speed for a novice, a shaft of regular (R) flex is ideal.
