3 Most important clubs in golf
Ask any golfer who has played for a while, and they’ll all give a similar answer: the three most important clubs are the putter, the driver, and the wedge. To understand why, let’s look at the stats. Pros average 20-25 putts per round, and the best putter usually wins the tournament. You use your driver about 14 times per round, and the wedge is used on almost every hole—whether it’s to hit a good drive and wedge it close, or to get up and down after missing a green.

Putting is especially critical because a 3-footer counts the same as a 300-meter drive and sets you up for the next hole. Good putting also builds momentum. Drain a long putt for par, and you’ll feel more confident and likely hit a better drive on the next hole.
