Golfers...

I've been playing for about a year now, mostly with borrowed clubs. So I am looking at getting a set of clubs pretty soon. The problem is, that I am pretty short, (5'4"ish) and I don't have the money to get a custom set. I'm a 100+ golfer, but have been told by some pretty good golfers that having ill fitted clubs could be a big reason for my struggles.

I've had some suggest looking at a set of lady's clubs. My question is, are lady's clubs lofted or weighted any different than men's clubs? If so, does anybody have any other suggestions, or would I be better off just waiting until I can afford to get a custom set?

If you want to be taken seriously, don't get a set of lady clubs. The irons are made with graphite shafts which is something you don't need unless you are a senior citizen. I'd just wait.

Golf stores like Golfsmith always have a pretty good selection of used golfclubs but you might have to get them fitted which isn't very expensive.

It costs nothing to stroll into a Dick's and have them measure and fit you. As a matter of fact, just about any golf shop (Golf USA, Golfsmith, Edwin Watts) will take the time and measure you as well, fitting you and making the right recommendation.

I have the opposite issue at 6'6" and I have an extra 1/2" on my irons and it costs me nothing to get properly fitted. Trust me, you want the right information because, as you said yourself, you'll spend a few extra bucks on getting the clubs sized. And a good set of irons could set you back anywhere from $400-800.

I think someone's f*cking with you.

agreed.

Just bought new and they extended them for no extra charge other than the over sized grips. I'm sure they would be more than happy to chop yours down for you.

I was at Martin's in Myrtle Beach last week... saw some Callaway Diablo irons I really liked... I need to break down and get me a new set.
