The most important clubs in a golf bag are the driver, putter, and wedges.
By: Donna F Weiss
Driver: The longest club in the bag, used to hit the ball the farthest.
Putter: Used to hit the ball into the hole from close range.
Sand wedge: Used to hit the ball out of sand bunkers.
Lob wedge: Used to hit the ball high and soft for approach shots.
3-wood: A fairway wood with a loft of around 15 degrees.
5-wood: A fairway wood with a loft of around 18 degrees.
Hybrid: A combination of a wood and an iron, making it easier to hit than a wood but still giving you the distance of a wood.
