Being the most important golf club, the putter has gone through quite a change in recent years. The size and shape of the putter head comes in many different varieties. The shaft length also can be very short or very long and anywhere in between. Conventional putters, belly putters, mallet putters - the choices seem endless. Golf club putters also have a wide range of prices, ranging from around $20 to around $300.
Clubs are made with different materials for the shafts. The material determines how the club will react and how much flexibility there is in the club. Graphite shafts are lightweight and can help add speed to the swing. They have a softer flex and are a good choice for junior players as well as women. Steel shafts are stiff and offer no give. Yet steel is more durable and stronger.
Always test the clubs out before purchasing them. You never know how they will feel to you. Sometimes the shaft is too thick or too narrow for your grip, making it difficult to hold the clubs comfortably. Remember that the grips are something that can easily be changed. Most avid golfers need to replace the grips yearly. Men's golf clubs are designed to fit men whose height is 5' 10". If your height varies considerably from this standard you may need to get your clubs customized. Club fitting is getting clubs custom sized to your specific needs. A golf pro helps determine your measurements.
Once you have your clubs and you're out on the course it may be hard to figure out which club to use when. The face of the golf club slants more or is more on an angle, the higher the club number. The more the angle, the less distance the ball will go. Use this chart to determine average distances for the various clubs. Try your clubs at the driving range to see what your actual distances are.
