Golf Clubs & Golf Equipment
In 1603 a Scottish bow maker named William Mayne, the appointed “club maker” to the court of King James, made the first manufactured golf clubs. These early golf clubs were created entirely of wood since this natural material was not only easy to shape, but also soft enough not to damage the stuffed leather golf balls used by golfers until the mid-1800s. A set of golf clubs at the time consisted of a selection of play clubs called “longnoses” for driving, some fairway clubs or grassed drivers for medium range shots, spoons for short-range shots and a putting “cleek”. Today, the design and manufacture of golf clubs is both an art and a science with a variety of high tech innovations.

Because there were no formal standards, through the 1930s there was a rich variety of clubs available for the intrepid golfer. In 1939, to prevent golfers from using inordinate numbers of clubs and to promote individual skill, the R&A, the golf's world rules and development body and organizer of The Open Championship introduced its 14 golf club rule. The modern convention for numbering woods and irons dates from this period. Since 1952, the R&A, along with the United States Golf Association, has jointly issued the Rules of Golf, including design regulations for golf clubs.
The rules of the United States Golf Association (USGA) have only a few short paragraphs regarding the design of golf clubs. Fortunately there are no restrictions on weight or materials, and only a few restrictions on the dimensions. However, the most important rule requires that golf clubs ''shall not be substantially different from the traditional and customary form and make." When you observe the design of golf clubs, particularly woods and irons, you'll notice these golf clubs have certain similarities. Remaining within the USGA guidelines, manufacturers continue to incorporate many new features into the design of their golf clubs. By utilizing computer-aided design and mathematical models of club and ball dynamics, golf club designers have learned to incorporate new materials, redistribute weight, and alter the general shape of the club in an attempt to help both professional golfers and weekend players improve their games. Most golf club manufacturers emphasize their specifications as a means of differentiating their golf clubs from the competition. Because golf clubs used in a round of golf that is either part of a tournament or might count toward a golfer's handicap must conform to the design rules established by the R&A or the USGA, manufacturers submit all designs of new golf clubs to the USGA for review and approval.
