A complete set of clubs consists of up to 14 different golf clubs. Usually an individual combination of a driver, several fairway woods, hybrids, irons and wedges as well as a putter is used. The classic combination is made up as follows: Driver, wood 3 & wood 5, iron 3 - 9, pitching wedge, gap wedge, sand wedge and putter. The modern equipment on the other hand distinguishes primarily by the introduction of the hybrids. These are used for smaller woods like 5, 7 & 9 or long irons like 2, 3 & 4. Compared to the woods, they offer the player increased control and more ball flight height compared to the irons. Golf clubs such as drivers, fairway woods and hybrids are played exclusively with graphite shafts, while the shaft decision for irons and wedges is less clear and the range is extended to include different steel shafts.
While golf beginners get along well for the first 2 - 4 years with a predefined complete equipment including the mentioned clubs, advanced golfers with more experience, solid stroke consistency and playing practice, should put together the individual club categories individually with our help. A good knowledge of your personal playing preferences as well as golfing strengths / weaknesses is helpful.
