3 Tips For Choosing New Golf Clubs, Manhattan, New York

With spring just around the corner, many have the season’s first round of golf on their mind. Whether you’re new to the sport or you’ve been playing for years, you may find yourself needing a new set of golf clubs before heading out to the green. Before you buy just any clubs, however, New York Golf Center offers a few tips on buying the perfect set.

When shopping for new golf clubs, take it from Manhattan’s golf pros:

  • Consider Your Skill Level: Not every golfer plays at the same skill level, and that’s okay. Before heading to the sporting goods store or your local pro shop, be honest with yourself about your particular skill level. This will help give you an idea of the number and type of clubs you will want in your bag. In general, beginner golfers have only played a few times, intermediate golfers shoot between 80 and 95 strokes per game, and advanced golfers shoot less than 80 strokes.
  • golf clubsDecide How Many You Need: If you’ve been playing for a while, you may just be looking to add one or two new clubs to your bag. If you’re just beginning, however, be careful not to get overwhelmed by the choices available at your local golf store. Beginners usually need fewer clubs, so experts recommend only shopping for a driver, 3- and 5-woods, 7- and 9-irons, and a putter.
  • Choose Your Shaft: Once you’ve determined your skill level and the number of clubs you want, it’s time to decide on the material for the shaft of the club. The flex and material your shaft is made of (stainless steel, graphite, or titanium), will depend on your swing speed, while the length of your shaft is measured from the grip to the club head. You may need to do a few practice swings in the store to find the perfect shaft for you.
