    Hey there – great post – As a regular golfer, the best advice I was ever given was by a pro who was giving me lessons a few years back.  He took one look at me and asked me where I got my clubs from.  I told hm they were my Dad’s and he asked me how tall he was – He is 5 inches shorter than me.  He told me I would never really improve until i got proper fitted clubs – he easured me up and sent me on my way.  My game improved by 10 shots overnight.

    Since then I cannot tell you how many times I have watched someone play knowing that their clubs are the wrong size either by taking massive divots or continuously topping the ball.  Shorter cloubs also leads to hooking too.  I reckon you need to print out your height chart and post it to every golf site, group or page there is – the golfing world will thank you!

      Hi, Paul and thank you.

      The problem is that if you start using the wrong technique from the start of your learning, it can be complicated to fix it. Of course, you can do it but it takes time, and it even can take time to know what is wrong. Sometimes using the wrong size is the reason.

      Of course, budget plays a part in all decision. But the good thing is that beginners don´t need as many golf clubs as more development players. So the vital start price is much lower which helps with letting them start with the right size.

      If I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions, don´t hesitate to contact me.

    About four months ago my best sport is football but now golf has gotten over that . My interest for golf geared up when I visited my uncle about two months ago , he spent most of his time playing golf with his friends . He taught me how to go about it but reading this post has really educate me beyond what I expected.

      Hi, Lok Which and thank you.

      Thank you for kind words.

      Many football players start in golf after their carer in football. Many players in golf have played in team sports before. The reason is of course that you can play much longer in golf than in team sports, so it is an excellent active sport for them like other people.

    I never even thought about using different lengths of clubs when my Pops gave me beginner lessons years ago.

    I was using clubs for a 6 foot 5″ tall man when I’m 5 foot 8″ tall woman!

    I’m sure he probably knew that at the time but, it wasn’t really in his budget to have 2 golfers in the family I suppose ha!

    When I was watching the video it reminded me to take my arthritis AND my small hands into consideration too.

      Hi, Fyre and thank you.

      Yes, it is many things which we need to think about in sports. Budget is, of course, an important thing in that picture.

    Hi; my question on the topic: Is golfing a game that is more mind applicable than the actual clubs? My understanding from the post, am I to understand that the beginner. Golfer’s height needs to be in line with the
