The woods be named from 1 to 5, therein 1 is the driver with the most flat surface. However, in some recent years, the woods can be named til 9. The driver (or woods number 1) is the best golf stick for you to get the farthest hit due to its flat surface but it is the most difficult stick to use in all the kind of golf stick because its length will make difficult for new player. So that new player should use the woods number 3 or 5.
Irons: The irons is use for shorter distance than the start hit such as on the par 3 or around green. Clubhead is made of steel or iron, and are numbered from 1 upwards. Irons number 3 is the longest club in the irons with the most flat surface. There are also special irons sticks called wedges. A standard golf stick bag usually has one sand wedge (SW), the angle created between the shaft and surface is from 54 to58 degrees, and a Pitching wedge (PW), with 45 to 50 degree.
