2 Wood Golf Club Sets - A Beginners Guide
For many golfers a 2 wood is one of the most important golfing purchases they will make. For some it may be a once in a lifetime purchase, for others it may be every year they have a set of clubs. Either way, for any golfer a 2 wood is a vital part of your golf equipment. With so many different brands and models, the price can get high. What is also common for most people when they go to buy a club is that they tend to go cheap. To avoid buying a club that is not suited to you, and probably one you will not use very much, read on to find out more about a 2 wood golf club and what it can do for you.
If you are looking at buying a new set of clubs then there are many places you can start looking. The first thing you want to do is visit your local golf store and talk to the employees who will help you pick out the right set for you. If you are an adult (over the age of eighteen) then you should be allowed to choose from the "adult" 2-wood golf clubs. For those younger than this (and who are considered women by the golf industry), you will be allowed to choose from the "minor" 2 wood golf club.
You should know about the difference between the 2 wood golf club sets. A full size golf set has a shaft with at least 2 wood balls. A half size golf set has one ball, and a full size set will have two or more wood balls.
A lot of the better quality sets that you will find, include the 2 wood. A 2 wood is a little softer and usually will take a lot less swinging force to make contact with the ball. Because of this, it tends to have more forgiveness. It will swing more like a lighter metal. Softer 2 wood makes it easier to control when making your backswing and downswing.
The design of a 2 wood golf club set will probably be made of steel. This is because steel is very durable and will hold up over time. But a lot of manufacturers are adding titanium, which can also last in the outdoors. You may also find them with nickel or brass spoons.
When it comes to choosing your ideal set of golf clubs, there are a few things that you will want to look for. First of all, make sure that the shafts are symmetrical. Most sets of 2 wood golf club will be exactly the same in terms of length, but you will find that the shafts will tend to be a bit different. The best thing for you to do is to test the club out at your local driving range, or even at the local golf course before you buy it.
When choosing a club, you will also want to consider the shaft flex. The shaft should flex enough that you do not have a problem swinging your club but it should not be too stiff. A flexible shaft will help you increase your swinging speed, but it will also allow you more power when you hit the ball. Look at which club's shafts flexing options are most important to you, and then choose a club accordingly. It is a good idea to try out a couple of clubs to really get a feel for which flex feels best for you.
Finally, when you are buying a 2 wood golf club set, you may want to consider getting an extended warranty. In many cases, the shaft breaks down on you, and you need an extended warranty to get it repaired. Some golf stores offer free shipping and a one year warranty on the shaft, so this is a great option to go with if you want to save money. You may also want to consider buying a golf bag with a carrying case so that your clubs are always safe and covered.
