python program

I'm trying to create a program in python that tells you the golf club you need based on the distance. You enter your average distance for each club, and then the program would tell you what club you need. How would I do this? Would I use input with a loop?

You would do this with a conditional statement! It might look something like this:

distance = int(input("How far in yards do you need to hit the ball?  "))
if distance > 0 and distance <= 20:
    print("You need to use a putter")
elif distance > 21 and distance <= 100:
    print("You need to use an iron")
