Stumpy

Golfers...

8 posts in this topic

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.

    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.  
    • Assholes should've never taken it away in the first place.  Me and a couple buddies had a hookup and were all hyped up and planned out going to it... then the NBA had to get all political and take it out on the city of Charlotte and the fans -- which made no fuging sense.  Seriously doubt we'll even get the chance to go again.
    • 6'6" 255.  He'll definitely have some good mentors with JP, CJ and the rest of the D-Line crew. 255 he'll need to put some weight on don't you think?
