|A well equipped golfer will carry a variety
of special purpose golf clubs:
- drivers - used to get the maximum distance; requires
the ball to be raised on a tee on sitting on high grass
- irons - range in club face angles to trade distance
for height. A "one" iron is the
flattest iron, hardest to hit, and yields
the farthest distance. a "nine"
iron has the most slant to the face and yields
the most vertical shot to keep the ball from
- wedges - one of the most vertically surfaced clubs
designed for lifting the ball out of sand
traps and other hazards
- putters - a flat surfaced, precision balanced club
for accurately hitting the ball on the green.
