A good set of golf clubs is the weapon of choice for the advanced golfer. A complete set of clubs consists of at least one driver, fairway woods (which are now metal woods), irons and a putter. Some clubs in recent years have been replaced with hybrid golf clubs to replace longer irons and fairway metal woods.
The United States Golf Association (USGA) sets the rules of golf. In those rules, it limits the number of golf clubs in a golfer’s golf bag to 14 golf clubs. A classic golfer would have a driver, 2 fairway woods, 7 golf irons, 3 golf wedges and a putter. You will find a different set combination in each golfers bag. Hybrid golf clubs, of late, may replace some of the longer golf irons and fairway woods.
