The Clubs

A part of being a golfer is having your own clubs. Clubs are important because there are so many to choose from. When warming up, you can use any club that you want to. I suggest that you use something like a pitching wedge(p) or an 8 iron to start you off. These would be good choices because you always want to start off with a club that is long. Although, when you are playing an actual game of golf, you must use a specific club at a specific part of the course. It may seem like this doesn't really matter, but, in fact, it does. Each club is meant to be used at some point, so here is how each club works.

1. The Driver- When playing a game of golf, the first club you must always use is a driver. This is the biggest club that hits the ball the farthest. Since you start far away from the hole, it is important that you always start with   this kind of club. The ball will most likely land somewhere in the fairway after you swing. This is when you switch to a smaller club, since you are closer to the hole.
2. The Hybrid- There will be a club that looks like a small driver that says 4h on it. This club is called the hybrid. The hybrid would be just about the right club to use since you are still kind of far.
3.The Pitching and Sand Wedges- When your ball gets close to a sand bunk, this is when you should use the pitching wedge(p) or the sand wedge(s). These clubs will help you get your ball on the green the easiest.
4. The Putter- Once your ball is on the green, you will obviously need no other club than the putter.  With the putter, you just simply stroke the ball into the hole. Since you don't swing hard with it, the putter can help you with your aim of the club. A good trick is to line up the logo of the ball, so it is pointing directly to the hole. Then you stroke the putter right where the line is, and it will go in the hole.

If you are new to golf, you may have to get used to this routine for a while. But if you focus on your swing, you will do fine with any club. Good luck and happy golfing!
