Full swings, please! Okay, that’s 12 clubs taken care of. You have two left. We recommend carrying at least one lofted wood or hybrid club. Make that two. Lownumbered irons are too unforgiving. So give yourself a break. Carry a 5-wood and even a 7-wood. These clubs are designed to make it easy for you to get the ball up in the air. They certainly achieve that more quickly than a 2-iron. Sometimes called a utility or rescue club, the hybrid is sort of an iron and sort of a fairway wood. It’s a fairly recent entry — a forgiving club that gets the ball airborne in a hurry.

Styles have changed, too. When we came on tour in the early 1970s, polyester was the fabric of choice. Bell-bottoms and bright plaids filled golf courses with ghastly ridicule. We’ve evolved to better fabrics — and a softer, more humane existence on the course. Some guys on tour now wear expensive pants with more expensive belts. And a few, like Rickie Fowler and Ian Poulter, are more colourful than we were in the 1970s! ) But most players wear off-the-rack clothes provided by clothing manufacturers.

Go with a two-piece ball. I wouldn’t recommend a three-piece ball to a beginning golfer. Tour pros and expert players use such balls to maximise control. For many years, the best players used balls with covers made of balata, a soft, rubbery substance. Today, many high-performance three-piece balls have covers of something even better — high-performance urethane elastomer, which is a fancy way of saying ‘expensive superplastic’. But you don’t need that stuff. As a beginner, you need a reliable, durable ball.
