When to buy second hand.

The technical specifications of the clubs are also verified and a limited warranty is then produced.
Know what you need.
It’s important to know your clubs and which one of those clubs is imperative to your game. You may decide to pick up a few select clubs instead of an entire set. Therefore, you need to know which one you would prefer to buy first. As you may know, there are 14 pieces in a professional club set. You may only be able to afford half a set on the outset, referring to previous point, you should know exactly which ones you should choose. It is advisable to make sure the following is in your selection: three woods, two irons, a wedge and a putter. Most instructors teach that a driver is not necessary at first. A combination of a 3, 7 & 9 wood should set you straight, a 5 and 7 iron will help in your approach, and you’ll want to get a sand wedge to keep you digging out the bunker. Of course a putter is self explanatory.
