Play With A Discount Golf Clubs

By Joe M. Randolph

Discount Golf Clubs - Buying a replacement set of golfing clubs can be costly. A discount club, on the other hand, can fill out the golfing bag and get you on the way with less discomfort. Before you begin to shop you could like a little info on the kinds of discount clubs that are out there and how they're made.

Club Parts

There are many sorts of clubs, but they can broadly be split into 3 categories. So that the discount club of your dreams may be a wood, an iron or a putter.

Whether it is a pricey or Discount Club, it has 3 parts : the grip, the shaft and the head. Standards for these parts are set by the ruling bodies of golfing.


The grip, naturally, is the part you hold. It's got to be round, without obvious bumps or hollows. Grips are often made from rubber or leather and have tiny holes, grooves and ridges to make it simple and cosy to hold and control. Inside boundaries set, the right size and shape of the grip is merely a matter of preference.


The shaft is the long part between the grip and the head. Shafts must be round and are generally made from either steel or a carbon-fiber composite. Carbon-fiber is more expensive, so your discount club will likely have a steel shaft. Carbon-fiber has small, if any, benefit over steel. Most makers have 6 grades of rigidity for the shaft. A stiffer shaft delivers the power of the swing pretty exactingly while the less stiff shaft adds a little bit of a whipping effect which adds rather more 'oomph'.


The energy of the swing is transferred to the head which is the part that connects to the ball to send it on its way. The head is part that tells you which of the three types of clubs you're using. The largest heads are on the woods and the largest wood is the driver. The longer shaft of the wood delivers more power to the head, but makes it more difficult to connect the ball with the "sweet spot" of the head which will send the ball straight. A heavy head resists the twisting that will send the ball to the right or left while a lighter head is easier to swing and results in a longer distance. The shape and composition of the head that balances the advantages of large and light weight has little to do with cost, so a discount golf club can make a good wood.

Irons are the most sundry. The lower the number, the bigger the distance it's made for. Higher numbered irons include wedges which lift the ball in a high, shot arc. In the last twenty-five years, even the discount golf clubs offers a head with the weight distributed round the fringe to resist twisting. New alloys permit a bigger head to extend the dimensions of the sweet spot.

Putters are engineered to send less energy down the shaft to the head, sending the ball a short, controlled distance into the hole one hopes. The big selection of head shapes simply help the golfer in handling the pressure of putting.
