The half set combination not only sufficient for most novice golfers on golf course for every situation but also makes club selection much easier. It is a good combination of clubs to help novice to improve their swing technique until they are good enough before they advance to full set golf clubs. Therefore, you have to make sure to select a golf model for your half set from a reputable manufacturer that can be added to at a later stage.
The best way to purchase a used golf clubs is to actually hold them in your hand and swing them to get a feel for what you want. The feel of a golf club clearly seems to be all-important. But, what is 'feel'? There is no scientific formula that defines it. In general, feel can be described as way a golfer feels a club when he or she swings it depends on its swing weight and flexibility of its shaft.
Iron Club head
Look for club head that made of stainless steel and avoid inexpensive alloy heads. For beginner, you should select 'heel-and-toe' (or, perimeter-weighted) club head design, cavity backed (hollowed out in back) and over-sized golf club. You should get bigger club heads because they are more forgiving with enlarges 'sweet spot' that can produce maximum distance even with off-center contacts.
Graphite shafts is ideal for beginner even though it is more expensive that steel shafts. Its lighter overall weight allows beginner to swing club faster even with enlarged clubhead.
If you have purchased used golf clubs where condition of grips could be less than perfect or grips don't fit properly for you, then make sure you replace them. Grips are fairly easy and inexpensive to change by a pro or club repairman. Ensure all grips are replaced with same size and design.
Finally, if you are just starting out with golf, chances are your swing is more likely to let you down rather than golf clubs itself. Having said that, it is still important to try out golf clubs before buying them in order to find a golf club set that suits your swing, body and game. Most importantly, makes you feel confident when you use it.
