Golf clubs are the basic instruments for playing golf, are designed to hit the ball and are divided into three groups: Woods, irons and putter. Each of them is used in different situations, the woods for long blows, for intermediate strokes or approach irons and putter to hole the ball in the hole.

Types look at the different types of golf clubs: Woods: they are golf clubs that achieves greater distance and are used for shock longer, as exit from the tee. Despite their name they are manufactured from steel or titanium. The driver or wood 1 is bat long, powerful and difficult to use, the rest are called Wood Street. Irons: used for intermediate strokes or approach, and differ by angle, which causes the ball to acquire a more or less high trajectory. Numbered irons range from 1 to 9, and its angles They range from 14 to 41.
For special moves or approximation using the wedges, whose greater inclination makes the ball pick up height and not run into the pot. We can distinguish between pitching wedge (45 ), gap wedge (50 ), sand wedge (55, used to exit the bunkers) and lob wedge (60 ). Putter: they are golf clubs that are used on the green to feed the ball into the hole. Hybrids: golf clubs are intermediate between Woods and irons, try to get the distance of Woods and the ease of use of irons. They come to replace the long irons 2, 3 and 4.
