golf clubs - irons and woods The game of golf is played with a golf ball and a set of golf clubs.  Several types of clubs are used to play a golf course, depending on distance and situational requirements.  A player may use no more than 14 different golf clubs during a golf tournament. 

Early golf clubs were made from wood, but stronger golf club materials and improved designs emerged as harder golf balls were developed.  Today's golf club heads and shafts are made from a combination of steel, graphite, titanium, and various alloys.  As golf players continually seek an extra performance edge, golf club designers continue to develop clubs that claim improved stroke accuracy and flight distance.  Competition among golf club manufacturers is intense and has resulted in good quality golf clubs becoming widely available at reasonable prices.

A set of golf clubs consists of woods and irons with varying shaft lengths and clubface angles, plus a putter.  A golf club's shaft length and clubface angle affects the distance and height of the golf ball's flight trajectory.  In order to deal with the range of situations encountered on the golf course, most players have eight to ten irons, three to five woods, and a putter.

  • Woods are designed for long-distance strokes.  The 1-wood is called a driver and is normally used for tee shots.  All other woods are used on the golf course fairway.
  • Irons are designed for approaches to the green.  Special types of irons, called wedges, are designed to hit the ball high and short, and are used for a variety of special situations near the putting green.
  • Putters are designed to roll the golf ball, and are most often used on the putting green.  The straight, full clubface of a putter helps to aim putting shots accurately.
