Golf club sets are composed of 14 clubs which is the maximum legal amount allowed by the USGA. In a beginner golf club set you should look for a good mix of drivers, woods, hybrids, irons, wedges, and a putter. Most importantly, you want the golf clubs to cover your distance gaps.
Back decades ago, I took a golf class early Saturday morning for over a year. It was a great way to learn a new skill, get exercise, and wake up my body after a week of work. I loved it. If you enjoy the game of golf, you need to understand the importance of your putter. It may not be the longest hitting club in your bag, but your putter is most important when it comes to putting a score on the scorecard. A well fit putter can help a golfer escape disaster on a hole poorly played, or help convert a birdie putt after a shot that is well struck.
