The DICK'S Sporting Goods Golf Club Buying Guide
Learn more about the clubs in your bag before making your selection.
Golf drivers help you achieve distance and flight off the tee. You can select from standard, midsize and oversized clubheads and a variety of materials, from innovative titanium to popular aluminum. Today’s larger clubfaces have larger sweet spots and promote greater stability and power on impact. In addition, drivers come in many lofts, typically between 8 and 15 degrees for men and 10 and 15 degrees for women.
Fairway woods are typically used for shots along the fairway. They have a higher loft than your driver and feature a smaller profile that can be used for directional control from tee or fairway. These clubs are typically made of graphite.
Irons are used for shots of less than 200 yards. Traditional iron sets include eight irons—three through nine irons and a pitching wedge. You can choose from game-improvement or player irons. A low profile, wide sole and lower center of gravity make them exceptionally playable.
Putters come in blade, mallet and alignment clubhead designs. Three to four degrees of loft provides smooth roll and limited skidding on the green.
To customize your game even further, shop personalized golf balls from Titleist, Callaway and more top brands.
