Possibly the most important pieces of golf equipment are your clubs. The official rules declare that a player can have no more than 14 of them in his or her bag, one of which is your putter. That leaves you with only 13 weapons to go to war with, so you better make sure they work.

When it comes to arming yourself with the right clubs, you ought to be honest with yourself about your playing level, the quality of your swing, and exactly what kind of player you are.

Not only will this help you pick irons and woods that match your game. You’ll also end up saving yourself money. For instance, you an save hundreds if you are a beginner golfer, realize this, and buy a cheap starter set of clubs.

To match your golf equipment with your skill level, determine first which category of player you are. There is the low-handicap, mid-handicap, and high-handicap golfer. So you know, a handicap measures how well you typically shoot compared to the average par of an 18-hole golf course.

Experts classify a low-handicap golfer as somebody who shoots, on average, less than an 82 on an average course. That equals 9 or few strokes over par, or a handicap in the single digits

A low-handicaps player has a single-digit handicap, meaning he or she generally scores less than 10 strokes over par, or an 82 or less on a par-72 course. If you’re in this camp, you’ll want to pack your bag with high-performance clubs that can maximize your abilities.

Such golf equipment includes a driver and at least one other wood, such as the 3 wood. Pack your low irons, too, such as the 3 or 4 iron. Players with your skill can accurately hit these normally difficult-to-it clubs, and these clubs can make reaching the green from 200 plus yards out a cinch.

You can best manage mid-range approach shots with the high trajectory irons, your 8, 9, and pitching wedge. Of course, you’ll want your sand wedge, as well, in the unlikely event you sail one onto the beach.
