Are you bad at playing golf? Just keep a golf club, might be a good weapon !

Few years ago golf was still considered to be a sport of “a high society”. Businessmen in fancy clothes pretending that they love playing golf even if they don’t hit any holes. I would be quite angry and break that golf club and never came again. Nowadays golf has been becoming a sport for common people as well and it’s getting more and more popular. But do you know anything about how golf clubs were made of in history and how they are made today?

Golf clubs have gone through few changes over the past years. At the beginning golf clubs were just three branches shaped carved into a shape of a club. After some time this was changed and clubs were made of iron and a wooden shaft. As iron heads damaged the balls, iron was replaced by wood and wood clubs became standard.

Wooden heads

At the beginning of twentieth century golf balls improved that much that it was possible again to make golf clubs out of metals. Wooden shafts were simply replaced by steel ones. Although steel shafts are not as flexible as golf players would like them to be, but steel is still widely used followed by aluminium, graphite or even titanium.

Steel golf clubs

The main reason why golf clubs are made of steel is the price. Titanium or graphite are quite expensive and only a very serious professional golfer would invest into set of clubs made out of these materials. Steel club heads can reduce the total weight of a club and increase club head speed.

If you think you wouldn’t be a good golf player you can always get some steel golf club and use it as a weapon. One caretaker of a church saw some suspicious man who broke into a church. Caretaker grabbed a golf club and struck him breaking the club. The suspicious man was about to steal bicycles so golf club slowed him down and finally he was arrested by police.
