How To Choose A Golf Club - Beginners Guide Part 1/10

A golf club is for playing with, not sitting in! Although I do rather like the design of this club in Sempachersee, Switzerland
To a beginner, making head or tail of what's needed in a set of golf clubs can prove a real obstacle to getting on with learning the game. There are so many different club options - a golf driver, irons, fairway woods, hybrids, wedges and putters. Some golfers  prefer to play nearly all their fairway shots with fairway woods or hybrids instead of irons, and in fact you can now get entire hybrid iron sets! Then there are lofts to choose, and shaft flexes to decide upon and numerous other things to think about. It can be bewildering! So it may come as no suprise that my advice to beginners would be "keep it simple". What does simple look like, you may ask? Well I think a golf set is a very good place for a beginner to get started.  A golf set will provide a good combination of clubs to get you going and as you begin to develop your playing allow you to work out what you really need. Try starting with a set that includes a couple of fairway woods and at least one hybrid, and ideally a mallet putter.  Good examples include the:
