Hi, this is Kevin Battersby with battersbygolf.com in Coconut Creek, Florida. In this clip I'm going to show you how to choose your golf clubs. Some of the considerations you want to make for your golf clubs are in the shaft. I would recommend in this day and age every player trying to select a graphite shaft at least for your driver. a graphite shaft allows the club to be a little longer; allows the club to be a little lighter and then the head that's put in the graphite shaft is actually heavier and we'll be put in for a steel shaft. So the graphite is a great consideration for the club. I actually have graphite in my iron shafts as you can see here. What this allows me to do, again, is to have a heavier head. You notice I have steel a cavity back idea on this club here; I don't play the blades anymore and you don't see the pros playing completely and exclusive to the blades. The blades are tougher to hit; this cavity back idea here allows for a larger switch spot and as I got older now in my fifty's I've used the club, it's a Mizuno, it's a muscle back, dual muscles called; okay and then I go on to selecting my clubs; I recommend it to everybody to get a hybrid golf club. The hybrid is replacing the long irons. This is a seventeen degree; looks like my one iron but much easier to hit. The configuration to face and the profile helps get the ball up and then the larger face gives a larger switch spot in the old one irons that we used to use. I also have a twenty degree hybrid. This is about a two or three iron. Some players employ a twenty four degree hybrid which is like a four or five iron. I recommend you have some type of hybrid in your golf club to take advantage of the technology that's out there today. In addition you still see some players using steel shafts. I don't because the steel shafts which have the step downs here; but my arthritis in the hands those step downs provide more vibration which ends up pretty much in my hands in the long run. I can hit more golf balls, I can play more tournaments and I can practice more with the graphite club. This is Kevin Battersby showing you how to choose a golf club.
