This is the “flatstick” club that you use on and around the putting green. They come in a variety of different styles from mallets to weighted to blades. The most important thing is finding one with the proper length that lets you naturally hang your arms for a smooth stroke.
The club designed to be hit off a tee and go the farthest. While an adult-sized driver might have 8-11 degrees of loft, beginners with slower swing speeds traditionally perform better with higher degrees of loft.
A Fairway Wood
Sometimes called a fairway metal, hybrid, or rescue club, this helps you hit the ball far off the fairway. It has a higher loft than a driver and is designed to hit the ball off the ground.
A club with a flat-faced, solid metal head. A full iron set is typically a 4-PW (8 clubs). Golfers can customize how many irons vs. fairway metals they would like to keep in their bag.
A Pitching Wedge (PW)
This is a great utility club to have for pitching and chip shots around the green.
As you master the pitching wedge you will want to get a Sand Wedge, which has more bounce and provides more loft. Then once you master that, consider an even loftier Lob Wedge (60 degrees).
