The pinnacle of every golf bag is the driver, an essential golf club that can have a very positive impact on a golfer’s handicap. When trying to determine how many golf clubs in a set will actually work most ubiquitously, think of the driver.

A driver is characterized by having the largest head, lowest loft, and longest shaft of all the clubs in a golf bag. Modern driver heads are commonly made out of hollowed titanium while most shafts are made of graphite with varying tensions.

A driver is the only club in a golf bag that is not designed to be hit off of the ground. Instead, drivers are designed to be used when hitting off of a tee to produce maximum club head speed and velocity while maintaining balance and control.

Fairway Woods

Fairway woods are also an extremely important addition to a golf bag. The heads used on fairway woods are smaller than a driver and the loft is generally between 12-18 degrees while a driver is between 7-13 degrees. For beginners, 17 degrees is highly recommended.


Hybrids are a newer addition to the long club family. Hybrids are very versatile clubs that replace a range of irons from anywhere from a 2-iron to an 8-iron loft. The heads of hybrids are generally shaped similar to fairway woods but are smaller and more shallow. Hybrids have a larger sweet spot and a lower center of gravity than the long irons that they are designed to replace.


With the various types of clubs used in golf, it can be a difficult task deciding what golf clubs you should use depending on where you are at in the game. A beginner golfer may be left asking how to choose golf clubs when there are so many golf clubs in a set and for various reasons! There are many different sizes and shapes of golf clubs that are designed to be used for teeing, swinging on the fairway, and getting out of a sticky situation.

Teeing Off

Teeing off is an essential part of a game of golf because it is how you start the round. Hybrids, which are versatile clubs, would ideally be the best golf clubs for beginners and can be considered the “go-to” club for newcomers looking to tee with ease.

Approach Shots

Short golf shots, known as approach shots, are used to put the ball on the green and thus the correct club is needed to accomplish this shot. When thinking of which golf clubs you should use in your set, you’ll want to select an 8 or 9 iron club.

Trouble Shots

Landing in a tough spot, such as a sand trap can be a nightmare for all golfers, especially beginners. To make your way out of the trap or off the rough, you’ll want to opt for hybrid clubs which are dependable golf clubs for beginners.


The #1 mistake that beginners make is going into a shop and buying an entire set of golf clubs at once just because the bundled price seems like a good deal. With this, you end up buying clubs that are not suited for your level of playing.

A better rule of thumb is to start off investing in 5-6 individual pieces that are more tailored for your needs. Following the concept of quality over quantity, buying fewer pieces that are on par with your level allows you to perform better, will get you better results, and allow for quicker improvements.

For Men:

Male golfers need consistency over distance. Ortiz recommends that the golf club you should use is a fairway 3 wood with a 17 degree loft since it’s super versatile—you can use it to club off the tee and off the fairway.

Some other tips:

Men don’t need a driver at first, these are the hardest to hit consistently
The stronger the loft, the more sidespin you get, and the more crooked the ball will go
Next is 21 degree hybrid, followed by a 25 degree, a 30 degree
7, 9 pitch sand iron are also essentials for the bag

For Women:

Since men and women have different issues on the green, their sets should be different. As opposed to men, women struggle more with distance than consistency. Most women tend to hit the ball relatively straight but do not get distance with the clubs. The most important one in the bag is a driver, preferably one with at least 14 degrees of loft.
