Knowing Which Golf Club to Use for Which Golf Shot

Part of the Golf For Dummies Cheat Sheet

The sheer variety of golf clubs you need can be overwhelming; after you have all the clubs you need and you hit the golf course, how do you know which club to use for each shot? The following table gives you a quick guide to the kinds of clubs in your bag and the shots you take with them.

Club What It’s For
Driver Teeing off — and very occasionally hitting from a good lie in the fairway
Hybrid club Getting shots of 150+ yards airborne
2- to 9-iron Hitting toward the green, usually from 120–190 yards away — use low-numbered irons for longer shots, high-numbered irons for shorter shots
Wedges Hitting short, high shots from near the green or from sand bunkers
Putter Rolling the ball into the hole after it’s on the green (or occasionally from just off the green)
