Tips on Buying Golf Clubs For Beginners Of all the tips on buying Golf Clubs for beginners, I strongly suggest looking at used clubs. Golfers have a propensity to abandon their old clubs in a never ending attempt to buy a better golf game. Consequently, there are lots of used clubs available at garage sales, golf pro shops, and golf superstores. Often times these clubs are in very good shape and at very decent prices. The beginner should investigate used clubs while keeping in mind the clubhead and shaft recommendations made above. A putter isn't normally included in a set of Golf accessories. My tips on buying golf clubs for beginners would always include spending some extra time selecting a putter. Putting is a very individualistic part of the game, and the putter should look and feel right to the player. So much of putting is confidence, and you need to be very comfortable with your putter selection. A club fitting can also include the putter. Remember, about 43% of the strokes in an 18 hole round of golf are made with the putter. It may be the most important club in the bag. If the beginning golfer wants to buy new Golf Clothing, I recommend a club fitting so that the player is properly "measured" for the new clubs. This service is available at pro shops and at most golf superstores, usually for a fee of about $35 that normally can be applied toward a purchase of clubs. During the fitting, the golfer will be able to hit several brands of clubs to find what he or she hits best. The selected club can then be fitted for length and "lie."
