Golf Club Type
Wood - This type is used for shots that are far away in distance; approximately more than 175 yards away.
Driver - This is a type of Wood, with an angle on the face of it, between 7 and 12 degrees, which plays a role in both how high and how far the shot will go. Drivers are perfect for those who are beginning or intermediate golfers.
Putter - This type’s main objective is to get the golf ball in the hole and comes in various styles, for different types of shots.
Wedge - This is a specialized version of an Iron. The most common is the Pitching Wedge which typically has an angle of 48 degrees on the face of the club. The sizes thereafter increase in degrees of 4: 52, 56, 60 and 64.
Utility - This type refers to Woods that have a greater angle of degree on the face of the club.
Iron - This type is used for shots that are less than 200 yards away. Irons are labeled as a number, usually 3 to 9. Depending on how far away you are from the green, determines which number to use. The basic rule is a higher iron for a closer green.
