Tips for Buying Women's Golf Clubs
The club that can create some nice distance is
Hi golfers, I'm Todd Kolb for About.com. We're going to talk about buying women's golf clubs.When we talk about buying golf clubs for women, a couple things that I want you to know, first of all, it used to be when we went to purchase women's golf clubs, they were nothing more than a men's set of golf clubs cut down, and over the last few years the manufacturers have made some nice advancements and made clubs specifically for women and specifically for some of the needs that women have. So the first thing about women's clubs that are different than maybe men's clubs is that they're a little bit shorter and they're lighter and these types of things allow the ladies to get the golf ball up in the air and certainly enjoy the golf game more.Now a couple fun things for the ladies is that they do a lot of nice things with colors and styles and things like that so the golf clubs almost become somewhat of a fashion statement for a lot of ladies and dependent on your style and what type of look you like to take to the golf course, you can certainly pick out bags and head covers and golf balls and all those types of things as well that might relate to the type of look that you want.So in the ladies set of golf clubs, there are a couple specific types of clubs that I would look for, one would be hybrids. Hybrids are really nice because they have a little bit more loft on them and they are certainly a lot easier to hit than the lower irons, like a 3 iron, 4 iron, 5 iron, those types of clubs are very difficult to hit and the hybrids can be a good substitute for that. Another club that you certainly want to have in your bag or maybe even a couple of them are fairway woods that have a lot of loft on them, so like a 5 wood, a 7 wood, a 9 wood, these types of clubs also are great for women because they allow you to get the golf ball up in the air and also create some nice distance.
