|Best Golf Clubs for Beginners
If you’re a beginner golfer you’ll want to find the best set of golf clubs for your beginning game. You want to look for clubs that are going to work well for you even when you hit the ball off center. This is because as you learn how to swing and hit the ball you’re going to be hitting a lot of balls to the side. What you’re looking for is a “perimeter-weighted” club that puts the majority of the weight of the club to the edges of the club head so that even a shot that is poorly hit won’t turn on you completely.
If you want to find a good beginner club that lets you get the golf ball up and into the air you’re going to want to look for golf clubs that allow “sole weighting”. Sole weighting ensures that the center of gravity is lower and puts the weight beneath the ball, lifting it into the air faster and easier. Many beginners have trouble hitting with long irons. If you’re having this trouble you’ll want to buy golf clubs that are known as “Hybrid” irons. These golf clubs give you a combination of an iron and a wood head, allowing you to put more weight
behind the ball so you can hit it easier.
Beginner golfers should use golf clubs that have a larger club head so that the spot on the ball is easier to hit. Any shots that you hit that are off center will cause your ball to lose distance during the shot. Golf clubs with a larger head will make it easier for you to hit the “sweet spot” of the ball. Titanium clubs are a good choice for beginners since they are lighter in weight than steel golf clubs and much stronger. This can give you a good feel for the swing of the club so you can work towards hitting your balls square on.
