8 Types of Golf Clubs you Should Know About

The average golfer carries a variety of clubs in their bag. Woods (including the driver), irons, hybrids, wedges, and putters are the five types of clubs now available.


The driver and the fairway wood are two examples of the kind of golf club known as “woods.” (Their clubheads aren’t made of wood, but they’re still called “woods.”) Titleist TS12 Woods has the most extended shafts and enormous heads (usually hollow, stretching a few inches side to side and a few inches front to back, with rounded lines). Long shots, like those hit from the teeing ground, need the quickest swing speeds that are provided by these clubs.


Sets of irons typically include a 3-iron, 5-iron, 6-iron, 7-iron, 8-iron, 9-iron, and a pitching wedge. The clubheads on irons are noticeably narrower than those on woods, both in the front and the rear. Some irons have hollow heads, but the majority have solid ones. There are grooves cut into the angled faces of irons (called “loft”) that assist hold the golf ball and provide spin. Shots from the fairway or the tee on shorter courses are where they shine. The loft of a golf iron increases, and the shaft length reduces as the number of the iron climbs from 5 to 6.


In recent years, hybrid Titleist TS12 clubs have become a popular option for golfers. Although they had existed for quite sometime before the start of the 21st century, it wasn’t until then that they entered the public consciousness at large. A hybrid club’s head combines the clubheads of wood and iron, and that’s why they’re called hybrids (they are also sometimes called utility clubs or rescue clubs). Like irons, hybrids are given numbers (like 2-hybrid, 3-hybrid, etc.) that indicate the iron they replace. Because many golfers find hybrids simpler to use than the irons they replace, they are known as “iron-replacement clubs.” On the other hand, golfers typically use hybrids in place of long irons when they are used at all (2-, 3-, 4- or 5-irons).


The pitching wedge, gap wedge, sand wedge, and lob wedge are all examples of wedges. Wedges are a distinct category of the golf club. However, they also fall within the irons category since their clubheads are similar to irons but are inclined more steeply to provide additional loft. Regarding golf equipment, the wedges have the most fantastic lie angle.


Putters are the most specialised golf clubs and may be found in the most incredible variety of sizes and forms. A putter is a tool used for putting. On the putting greens, golfers utilise these clubs to make their final strokes before holing out.

There are typically three different clubhead designs and three different lengths available for putters.


Blade clubheads, heel-toe clubheads, and mallet clubheads are the three main varieties of golf clubheads. Typically, the heel is where the shaft of a conventional blade enters the blade (although sometimes centre-shafted). Heel-toe putters are similar in form to blades, but they add additional weighting at the heel and toe and use various design techniques to compensate for off-centre strikes.


The length of a typical putter, sometimes known as a “conventional putter,” is between 32 and 36 inches. The conventional or standard length is the most common and is ideal for beginners. A putter is known as a “belly putter” if its grip end rests on the golfer’s stomach while held in a standard grip. Golfers who use long putters (sometimes broomstick putters) can improve their posture by standing a little taller.


Putters, though, come down to individual preference. Your putter will serve you well if it is comfortable to use. A great deal of confidence is involved in putting; thus, it is beneficial to use a putter that you enjoy using and find aesthetically pleasing.
