Take a break from buying individual clubs; buying a complete set is hassle free and a great value. When is the right time to buy a complete set? This can vary on skill set and budget. Many beginner golfers will buy a complete set to get started, this is a great option. A basic set of clubs is what any golfer needs to start playing the game. The set should include the following clubs; three woods, a collection of 3-9 irons, pitching wedge, sand wedge and a putter. As you need more you can add these on to suite your abilities. This is a great way to get started and get out to the greens.
The first thing to determine it your skill level before purchasing a golf set.
Low handicap golfers (those who are in the single digits) generally want to look for a set that has at least one fairway wood most likely it will be the 3-wood. As far as irons go look for lower irons while the 3 and 4 are more difficult to hit they are also the most useful if used properly. Taking a look at the wedges at least 3 wedges should be in the bag a sand, pitching, and either lob or approach wedge.
Mid-handicap golfers are those that play the bogey golf, generally one over par. Most of the mid handicappers will have a driver and a 3 wood or 5 wood in the bag. A good fairway wood is the perfect way to control consistency on the course. Irons will usually be 3-9 with the addition of wedges.
A high-hadicap golfer are generally those beginners and weekend golfers who shoot closer to 100. Some may not even need a driver in their bag because a driver may bring distance to a players game but it’s very difficult to control it’s accuracy. A fairway wood is a better option off-the-tee a 3-wood is the perfect way to start this and the 7 and 9 wood are a good option to be carried in the bag. Adding up to 3 wedges to the bag is a good idea including the pitching, sand, and either lob or approach wedge.
The most basic set will be a compilation of 2 or 3 woods, 8 irons, wedges, putter, and driver.
Choosing the right flex, as a beginner is also very important, these will range from regular to stiff. Intermediate players will also want to trade up and get new clubs. Buying a complete set is an easy and stress free way to do this.
