A great driver is essential, as it is one of the only clubs (besides the putter) that you will use on virtually every hole. Club technology has exploded in the past few years, and we've seen an increase in club and face size, increasing power and accuracy. A great driver can cost hundreds of pounds, so make sure you choose the right one for you! Depending on where you are in your game, you will require a different driver.

For beginners, you will want a flexible shaft to give you more power, a large club head for a bigger sweet spot, and a minimum 10.5º loft angle.
For the mid-level and advanced players, titanium shafts and heads are ideal. You will want a stiff shaft, and a loft angle of 9.0-9.5º.

Not only that, but buying a set will inevitably save you money. The one and two irons are not necessary for most golfers, so find a set that includes the 3 through 9-Irons, with a sand and pitching wedge to boot.
Most companies offer wedges ranging from 48º to 64º, so you should be able to find the wedges that suit your game best. The higher the degree, the greater the loft. Alongside the loft, the grooves on the club are essential for creating the proper spin. The various types of wedges include:

Your putter is the most personal club in your bag. There is no real strategy behind buying a putter. If you have a soft touch, a putter with a heavier head may suit you.
