Golf Club

A standard set consists of 14 golf clubs, but there are important variations between the different clubs. The force of the racket compresses the ball, while the grooves in the face give it backspin. Although there is a traditional combination that is sold commercially as a matching set, players can use any combination of up to 14 or less legal clubs in their golf club set.
The majority of the wooden irons are labeled with a number, and the higher number indicates a shorter shaft and a higher loft, giving the ball a higher or shorter trajectory. A hybrid is a cross between wood and iron, which gives the wood the long distance and the high drop with the well-known swing of the iron. The club head of a hybrid has a wood-inspired, slightly convex face and is embedded with hollow, modern metal wood that allows for a longer shaft, lower loft and lower backspin than a traditional wood iron.
The head is smaller than a real wood, so it does not reach as far back as the face, but it is still larger than an iron. The lie and shaft length are similar to those of iron, resulting in a similar swing and mechanism.
The shaft is typically classified as low, medium or high kick, and the shaft feels firmer when you swing it. A low kick means that it stores energy closer to the handle, which means that the club head can rotate more, but also allows a higher club head speed. The same swing strength bends it more than a high one – the kick shaft reduces the torque of the club head, reduces its speed and gives you better control over the direction. A larger diameter of a shaft makes it stiffer, as it is reinforced to reduce the amount of energy it stores at the point of contact with the ground, leading to a point that is the most flexible, the so-called kick point.
A racket can also have materials added to the shaft to give the player a firmer grip (see # 3 below). A racket must be made of shaft and head, but can also be made of other materials such as steel, aluminum or steel.
As for the clubhead, it must generally be plain and its parts must not resemble any other object. This allows the volume to be limited to 460cc, which can be imposed and enforced on the same club – head.
The current rules of club design, including the rules for introducing a club into the game, are defined in Annex II of the Golf Rules. We reserve the right to define the form and physical characteristics of clubs that are permitted in tournament play
II (1a) states that an association may not differ materially from the traditional or common form. A club can be made, but must not be made of any material other than wood, metal or other material of the same material.
Most woods manufactured today have a different shape to allow a faster club head speed, but it is the same material as the traditional wood of the early days of golf clubs. Although most woods are made of different metals, they are called “wood” to indicate that they were intended for use on the golf course.
The most common omission is the long iron with numbers 2-5, which is notoriously difficult to hit. Players can fill this gap in the distance with a higher-numbered wood, or they can replace it with a hybrid club with the same number. Typically, there is a gap between the length of the club and the distance of what is used on the tee box.
This combination enables long-range clubs that offer a better distance at slower swing speed. Stiff shafts are reserved for long irons, hybrids and short iron clubs as well as hybrid and long irons.
Stiffer shafts will also have less torque, but this is basically a function of the flex in the shaft itself. In order to counteract the torque of a more flexible shaft, the clubmakers have designed a shaft with different degrees of bending in which they and the clubhead are connected. When a torque is applied, the head of the racquet will twist slightly, which reduces accuracy because the face of each racquet is not squared to the player’s posture.
The shafts range from Senior to Extra – stiff, depending on the player’s preference, but the most commonly used numbers are 3 – 9. Irons are solid metal heads with a flat or angled surface, and the number from 1 to 9 corresponds to the length of the shaft. Most irons have a number between 1 and 9, with each number corresponding to a different type of shaft, such as a 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 or 8.
