The best Golf club for making a long drive down the fairway is simply known as a "driver". These types of clubs may also be called "long drive" golf clubs. Occasionally, the long drive club will simply be called an "LD" club.
The caddy wearliy shifted the set of clubs as he trudged down the fairway.
Depending on how the ball is sitting you can use any club. The problem with rough is that it has a tendancy to grap the face of the club in the downswing and closing so you get no elevation when you hit the ball, and sometimes the ball barely gets out of the rough. In very thick rough you are best taking a wedge and just advance the ball down the fairway as far as you can.
It depends how far you need to go. You can hit anything from a sand wedge to a 3 wood from a bunker. When hitting a fairway bunker shot, you need to make sure you have enough lift to clear the lip, but you should also choke down on the grip slightly. A fairway bunker shot differs from a green side bunker shot in that, in a green side shot you want to hit a couple of inches behind the ball, in a fairway bunker, you want to catch it ball first, otherwise you will just duff the ball about 30 yards.
Your shoulders determine where the ball is going to end up. Your foot placement also matters. Your eyes will deceive you when starting to play. I suggest lining up to tee off. - then placing a golf club on the ground (don't move your feet when doing this) behind -along your heels. Step away from your club and back away from the green or fairway. Notice where your club is pointing and that's where you have aimed your shot in golf. Once you correct your foot placement most of your shots should be down the middle of the fairway.
Drive down 17-mile drive. Park your car when you see one of the drive-side Cypress hole, Get a five iron and a ball out, run on the course, put it down and swing away. Then run down the fairway, grab the ball and run back to your car.
From the 3-4 hybrid down to wedges I feel are excellent and durable beginner club set. I do believe the Driver and Fairway woods (3 and 5) over sized heads flex are not condusive for a beginner or high handicapp golfer.
The sand club would likely be Lee's signature club as he was known for being the best @ up and down out of the sand during his days on tour.
You definitely need to have a driver. It is the club used mostly for driving the ball down the fairway at the beginning of most shots, it usually provides the most distance. You also want a putter. The putter is needed on the green and no other club is allowed. You might want to invest in a sand wedge or a pitching wedge as well. They give you good lift and can get you out of sticky situations. Invest in a 5 Iron or a 7 Iron as well. They give you different distances, but both are equally important for fairway action.
A sawed-down golf club is great for children who are too small for full-sized clubs.
It is "Fore", not "four", hence not "five" either. The "Fore" comes from the old use of "Fore-caddies" who were down the fairway looking for the golfers ball coming down the fairway from the tee. The golfer would yell "Fore" telling the "Fore-caddie" that the ball was on the way. Now, of course, "Fore" means "Watch out! Ball is coming your way."
For tight lies it does really matter which clubs you use in regards to irons and fairway woods as you usually hit down on these so the lie doesn't really come into it. However for wedges you are best going for a club with low bounce maybe 4-6 degrees so you can slide it under the ball easier when pitching, if you had high bounce you would be more likely to thin the ball, however low bounce wedges aren't idea from bunkers.
If you mean the small peg you stand your ball on before you wack it down the fairway, it's called a tee.
