Head Design – To achieve the maximum forgiveness on off centre strikes always choose a ‘cavity back’ design. This type of clubhead has had all of the weight and material removed from the back, which is then re-distributed around the perimeter. This creates a much larger sweetspot and also lowers the centre of gravity, helping you get the ball in the air as easily as possible.
Offset – 85% of all golfers suffer with a slice, a shot that curves off the right for a right handed golfer. To combat this problem many cavity backed club head designs use an offset head design, giving the golfer much more chance to square the clubhead at impact and reduce or eliminate the problem.
Shafts – The vast majority of golfers use regular flex steel shafts as these are seen as being the most consistent and accurate, which is important when playing shots into a small target such as a green. Graphite shafts are available for an extra cost and give extra distance thanks to their lightweight design. For the more mature and/or lady golfer senior and ladies flex shafts are also available.
Hybrid Iron Sets – Individual hybrids clubs, designed to replace traditional hard to hit long irons, have become so popular that manufactures now sell ‘pre-made’ sets, where a 3 and 4 hybrid are included as standard instead of the traditional 3 and 4 iron. The set from 5 iron down then uses the traditional iron shape. This has proved so successful that more sets are taking this form every year and provide the best value way for a high handicap golfer to get the most forgiveness for their money.
