Usually the driver if the hole starts on a par four or five. It's rare that they start on a par three. So on some par threes, there are people who can get to the green easily so they use an iron. Some are not to powerful so they use the driver. It depends what yardage it is.
Answer A driver such as a 1, 2 or 3 wood is normal for the long holes, my preferance was a 3 Iron for the shorter holes.
All of them. Anyone who says "just use a 7 iron", you look at that person suspiciously. Think about it: Did you ever see a golfer come attend a tournament with less than a full set? I have worked many tournaments and I have NEVER seen that.
You want to use EVERY tool to your advantage. Think about it. Winners of the tournament are paid handsomely. There are prizes for the first 3 or 4 winners.
A full set includes: a driver (or two drivers; maybe one at for example at 19 degrees) , a number 3 wood, irons 2-9, sand and pitching wedges, and a putter. Some players say that the hybrids are good also.
A golfer can carry 14 clubs in his bag. They consist of Woods, Irons, and a putter. The woods are used to tee off. (That means to hit the ball when it is up on a tee.) The irons are used to hit the ball when it is on the fair way or in the sand trap. The putter is used when the ball is on the green. It is used to putt the ball in the hole.
The Woods are labeled 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, etc.
The irons are labeled 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, etc.
A golfer chooses which clubs to carry.
Normally, a golfer will tee off with a one wood. That hits the ball the greatest distance. The lower the number, the greater the distance. However, the lower the number, the more likely, the player is likely to slice or hook the ball. (The terms slice and hook mean hit the ball to the left or right instead of hit it straight ahead.) A golfer will usually carry a one, three, and four wood. That leaves 10 clubs. (He also needs a putter.)
A regular golfer might start with a 3 iron and go through 11 and a sand wedge.
Only a few professional golfers use a 1 iron.

i would guess putters for most people.
Golf needs a putter. It is a club used when close to the hole to tap the ball in.
When a player is on the green, they will putt the ball towards or into the hole. A putter is used.
In a normal set there are about 14 clubs. Each club is used for a different distance, or a different set up. For example: 1 wood (also known as a driver) is used to hit of the tee for a long distance. 5 iron- is used to hit the ball from the fairway (The smaller the number of the iron the longer distance it goes) Pitching Wedge- is used to chip the ball a short distance, and gettting it up in the air. Putter- is used on the green to put the ball in the hole
From bottom to top: Head, on which the side that strikes the ball is called the face Shaft, the pole Grip, the rubber or leather molded or wrapped handle There are basically three kinds of Golf club heads: Woods or Drivers, which were traditionally made of wood but now are often made of synthetics with metal faces. These are used to drive the ball off the tee at the start of the hole. There is usually 1 driver and 2 fairway woods in a full set of clubs. Irons, which were traditionally made of metal and still are. These are used to send the ball from the fairway to the green, as well as out of sand traps and other hazards. There are usually seven irons (numbered 3 to 9), with graduated angles of the faces. Putter, an iron club with a perpendicular face, used to direct the ball from the green into the hole. There is usually 1 putter in a full set.
Driver- Used for tee shots, usually hits the ball around 200-300 yards, it is the longest club in the bag. Fairway woods, also can be used as tee clubs. They come in 3,5,7,9, 11 and 13 woods. They can also hit the ball a long way from the fairway. Some players also use them for chipping. The irons come in 2-pw and are used for long to short range shots on approach. The have slim profiles and ascend in loft. The wedges are short, high lofted clubs ideal for getting the ball in the air and stopping quickly as well as pitching. The putter is the shortest club in the bag, it can be used on or off the green. It is used to hit the ball into or towards the hole.
The putter is a unique golf club used primarily to hit the ball into the hole once it is on the green. Wedges have been referred to as utility clubs because they serve a special purpose--to hit a short, high-angle shot in order to get out of bunkers and rough lies or avoid obstacles.
As in length of club, no. As in distance it is used to hit the ball, no.
No. The ball you start a hole with is the ball you must finish the hole with. You can change to a different ball only prior to the T box.
No, this is not allowed. The only way you could do this is if you lost your ball and had to play another. You may however change balls in between holes, as long as you alert your playing partners.
