Back to our discussion on the price, quite often students are happy with their first purchase of clubs for a few years
before feeling the need to go out and get fitted with high end golf clubs. So if you are a beginner golfer with a standard
build and reasonably standard swing we would suggest a standard set of clubs. Unless you are unusually tall, short, strong
or have very large or very small hands. Generally speaking when regarding beginner golf clubs we would
recommend golf starter clubs valued under $500.00 so you can have a good quality set and not over commit on your golfing budget.
What specifications are right for me?
Golf clubs come in all shapes and sizes some considerations for the correct set
for you are as follows.
club flex is right for me?
As a general
rule a beginner golf starter set should have a golf club shaft that fits their needs. We would strongly discourage purchasing
a set of clubs that is too stiff for the amount of speed that the golfer produces. If there were a direction to err we would
suggest a softer shaft, which is easier to flex. Like a fishing rod we need to flex the shaft to get the most distance. We
would strongly discourage 100-pound women purchasing the next-door neighbor's extra stiff shafted men’s golf clubs,
even if they were dirt-cheap. This would hinder your progression substantially.
For the beginner golf set we would suggest for most men to start out with
a men’s standard club shaft and for women we would definitely consider the shaft flex as a very important factor of
your purchase. Choose the softest or ladies flex until your swing speed and golf muscles are developed. Some very strong athletic
women may eventually use regular or stiff men’s club shafts.
Should you purchase Graphite or Steel Shafts?
question of golf shaft composition could raise some debate amongst your playing partners. Many beginner golfers will prefer
to use the graphite shafted clubs as these help to absorb the jarring of shots not hit perfectly in the sweet spot. The advantage
of steel shafted clubs is they are generally a little cheaper and more consistent.
What Golf Club Head Design?
There are many golf club head designs on the market, too many to mention them all. We want you as a beginner to be
looking for an Iron Golf Club Head Design that features a lot of weight on the base of the club. This will assist you getting
the golf ball into the air. Golf clubs with a cavity back are very good for the golf starter set as the perimeter weighted
design of cavity back golf club will allow for the sweet spot of the golf club to be larger than the thinner blade style models
which are generally better left for the pro’s or top amateurs.
the best starter golf set make up?
Golf set make up refers to the type of clubs and the loft of clubs that you decide to use in your starter golf
Traditionally a standard set
of golf clubs would comprise of Irons 3,4,5,6,7,8,9,PW and SW and woods 1 3 and 5.
With the invention of the utility clubs and hybrids many manufacturers now choose
to build sets without the 3 irons. Hybrid clubs are often used as a replacement for the 3 irons as they are easier to
When buying golf starter clubs
it may be tantalizing to look for the expensive high end driver however we suggest that unless you are a very accomplished
golfer that a 5 or 7 wood will be a far more enjoyable experience.
We hope that this helps you make a smarter choice and saves you a few dollars.
