The official ruling of golf requires any serious user to have at least 14 golf clubs in his/her bag on any given game. Each golf club has its purpose and is used on different terrains of a golf course. Any person who intends to play golf and is serious about it should familiarize himself/herself on the different golf clubs to be able to master the craft. Go ahead and read below the different types of Callaway golf clubs.
Wood Callaway golf clubs
If your intent to send your ball soaring far and wide then this is the golf club you should use. Wood clubs could push a golf ball roll the farthest amongst the golf clubs made available in the market today. One swing on a wood club, if done properly and in a timely manner, can propel the ball from as far as 200 to 350 yards. Wood clubs are mostly made of persimmon or hickory wood as the name implies. Nowadays however, metal replacements or alternatives are made, such as wood golf clubs made of steel, titanium or any other form of metal alloy. The head of a wood club is usually round and large. The bottom is flat created in such way purposely so that it can glide over the ground when it is swung. Compared to other golf clubs wood clubs are the least lofted. Loft refers to the angle of a club in reference to the shaft (handle) and the ground. The lower the loft, the farther the ball is sent when the club is swung.
Iron Callaway golf clubs
The club head of this golf club is made of metal and is usually used when the ball is within 200 yards from any golf hole. Iron golf clubs are numbered from one to nine. Golf club 1,2 and 3 is called long irons, they can send the ball the farthest among the iron clubs since they have the lowest loft. Clubs 4,5 and 6 are called middle irons and they are mostly used when the distance is between 170 to 150 yards. Clubs 7,8 and 9 are called short irons and they can send the balls in the air quickly and within shorter distances than the first 6 iron clubs. Most golfers have iron clubs 3 to 9 since club 1 and 2 are amongst the most difficult to master.
A golfer uses this type of golf club when the intention is to make the golf ball fly into the air before landing on the ground. Their loft is the highest among the clubs and wedges are further divided into several forms. Such includes pitching, lob, gap and sand wedge.
A pitching wedge has a loft degree of around 46 to 51 degrees and is used when the distance is around 130 yards. A lob wedge, with a loft degree of at most 64 degrees is used when there is a clear, definite hazard but the ball need not advance further. Sand wedges are used when escaping deep holes or very tall grasses while gap wedges are used when the distance is around 110 yards from the green.
The most commonly used golf club is the putter. This is used when a golfer is trying to put the ball in the hole. It comes in different sizes but the standard size is around 34 to 35 inches in height. The taller of the putters are called a belly or a broomstick and are used by golfers having issues in using standard sized putters. If wood clubs are round and large, putters look like flat blades. It can also look like a standard mallet with a flat surface.
