Select clubs designed for your height and strength as well as your level of game. Most women ranging in height from 5 feet 1 to 5-6 can use standard length clubs that are sold in most pro shops and retail golf stores. If you are taller than this range and you choose to add length to your club, remember that the shaft will become whippier and the head of the club will feel heavier. Conversely, if you shorten a club, it will become stiffer. If taller women choose to buy men's clubs because of their height, they should opt for clubs that are very light. Most men's clubs are designed for strength.
When purchasing women's clubs, consider the correct lie of the clubs; that is, the angle at which the clubs sit to the ground. Ensure that the bottom edge of the club is level with the ground at address. Take a few practice swings. If the lie of the club is correct, the beginning of the divot mark should be uniform in shape and depth and should point directly at the target.
Most women's clubs are made with ultra light graphite, allowing more speed in your swing and more control.
Remember that a club with a stiff shaft can lead to poor shots.
Types of Grips
Make sure the grip of your club fits your hand. When gripping the club, as you close your left hand around the grip, your fingers should lightly touch the pad of your thumb. If there is a gap, the grip is too big. If there is an overlap, the grip is too small.
