How to Choose the Best Golf Clubs for Your Game?

The ever-expanding equipment market for golfers has made choosing the best clubs for your game increasingly difficult. This is because when you start browsing through pro shops, golf magazines and even department stores, you will find the selection of golf clubs almost mind-boggling. There are several factors to consider when looking for the best golf clubs for your game - the price, the design, the length, and the weight. What you have to be careful about are the promises that every company makes that their clubs will improve your golf game simply because their clubs are superior to others.

Don't fall for a sales pitch

The best golf clubs will improve your game, but you have to know what you are buying first. Any pro golfer will tell you that the best way to improve your game is to know your weaknesses and how the best clubs available will further enhance your stroke, your distance and precision. To that effect, here are some tips to find the best golf clubs for your individual game.

For the beginner, a full set of clubs is not usually recommended. Too many clubs makes it confusing for someone who should be focusing on their swing. This is why it is better to buy a few clubs and try them out until you learn the game than it is to waste money on a whole set that eventually winds up at a garage sale. For beginners, focusing on swing tempo, swing consistency, and swing speed are the most important. As your game improves and you learn your strengths and weaknesses, you will need a full set and maybe even some specialty clubs like wedges and putters to add depth to your game.

Also remember that most manufacturers design clubs with the individual in mind and not the idea that one universal design will work for every golfer. Most companies make clubs that incorporate design elements so that you can purchase the best golf clubs for your game. The result is a set of clubs that will allow you to improve your swing and lower you score. These design elements include length, lie, weight, shaft flex, and grip size.

Club Length

The shaft length of the golf clubs that you purchase will depend on your height, arm length and swing posture. For example, if you are 5'8 to 6' tall male, you would use a men's standard length. Women who are 5'4 to 5'7 can use a women's standard length. Men who are taller than 6' will probably have to use extra length and anyone less than 5'4 will benefit from a junior length. Also if you want to, you can have custom clubs made. However, if you can't afford that, there are alternatives. While golf manufacturer still label golf clubs as 'men's' and 'ladies', this is only to help separate out length and shaft flexibility for the purpose of height and swing speed. For example, if a woman is 6' tall, instead of getting a custom made set, she can go with a men's standard length.

The Lie of the Club

The next consideration for choosing the best golf clubs for your game is the lie of the club. The lie of the club has to do with where the sole of club rests on the ground when you are addressing the ball. This is why you should look for a club with a sole that is flat to the ground in the address position. A club lie that is too flat will elevate the heel of the club and pull your shots to the left. A club that is too upright will elevate the toe and will veer your shots to the right. This is why it is important to get the right club length for your height in order to have a straighter line of trajectory for the ball, and at the same time, create fewer divots.

Club Weight

There are two ways that a club weight is measured, and in order to choose the best golf clubs for your game, you should understand these measurements. The club's weight distribution from the head of the club to the grip is called the swing weight. Most clubs are made of steel; however, if you need a lighter weight club, there are many graphite and titanium clubs. The overall weight is simply how much the club weighs in total. The weight of a club is important, because the right weight will create optimal speed during your swing. A club that is either to heavy or too light will impede your ability to create optimal club-head speed.

Shaft Flex and Grip Size

If you want to choose the best golf clubs for your game, you will need consider shaft flex and grip size. For shaft flex, you will have to evaluate your strength and swing speed. If you have a weaker swing, then a more flexible shaft will help create a little more club head speed. If you have a strong swing, then a stiffer shaft will help you gain more control over the club head. Finally grip size is determined by the size of your hand and should be fitted accordingly. When it come to grip size, it is best to consult with golf pro to make sure you have the right fit.
