24th September – Women are shorter and less strong than men. For this reason women’s Golf Clubs need to be different than clubs designed for men. It is important to play well that you have golf clubs that are suited to your weight and strength level. Purchasing junior clubs is not necessarily the best choice either as junior clubs may not be able to handle the power a grown woman can place on a club.
When women try to use a club too long for them they end up choking up on the handle. This will have a negative impact on the golf swing. When you purchase women’s golf clubs you will have a set that is tailored to your physique. They are generally lighter and this will allow for a quicker swing.
Women’s golf clubs are about one inch shorter than a man’s club. They have more loft that will help to develop the arc needed on the ball. Grips have less padding and are lighter. Many women’s grips also have smoother grooves. The shafts of women’s clubs are stable. Stability of the driver is especially important. This stability helps to produce a more accurate swing. The heads of women’s clubs are designed to distribute the metals evenly in the heads to create maximum forgiveness. On average women’s clubs weight three ounces less than a man’s club.
The importance of buying Golf Clubs that are suited to your size and level of strength cannot be over emphasized. Women can find sets of clubs that are tailored to their specific body types.
