Some women golfers are playing with clubs that don't fit them without realizing it. Too often, women buy golf clubs without having a professional fit them with the right clubs. For example, women stand a 1 in 5 chance of having clubs of the wrong length. There are others whose clubs do not have the right shafts or whose club heads are not angled properly for their height. Read on for ways to lower your scores by playing with the right golf clubs.
Take you measurements. For example, it's the distance between the tips of your fingers and the floor that make the clubs fit properly. Even if you are short, you may require longer clubs because you have short arms. Have your swing speed measured, the amount of side spin and backspin you impart, before choosing a set of clubs.
Factor in your vital statistics--such as your age, height and weight--and your handicap. This information, combined with the technical information about your swing, will help make the best selection.
Consider the strong and weak points about your golf game. For example, if you are fighting a duck hook, it could be that the heel of your clubs hits the ground first, making you close your club face at impact. If your clubs have the incorrect angle, you can verify that by hitting a board on the ground using an old iron. You will know by this simple test if the club's heel hits the ground first.
Decide between buying a new set of clubs or having your old ones adjusted. It's a little known fact that golf club manufacturers can make adjustments to the clubs they sell. Furthermore, many pro shops and sporting goods stores can make those adjustments for much less than you would pay for a new set.
