Today, there are many women who grace the greens even though golf was once known as the “gentlemen’s game.” In many golf clubs, they have as many women or more women members. There are tournaments only for women and mixed contests. Since the popularity of the sport transcends gender, women, who are every bit as thirsty for pars and birdies as the men are, flock to the course.
More women begin to take up the sport of golf and for this reason, manufacturers have realized that there was an increasing demand for specialized equipment. When they settle for using men’s equipment, then women golfers know that it’s not possible for them to reach their full potential. But now of course, there is a huge selection of footwear, apparel, accessories, and women’s golf clubs on the market today.
Women’s golf clubs are lightweight, easy to control and set at the proper lengths to match all body types, personal tastes and skill levels.
For example, coming with variable length lines are many women’s woods and this will allow them to accurately shoot regardless of how much strength was placed into the hit. Also, some woods will display the ideal height of the user. If the height requirements are not shown in a woman’s wood, then you can assume that it is suitable for women between 5’5″ and 5’9″.
It’s crucial to have a selection of flexible woods because even on the fairway, many women would prefer to use woods more often than irons. Unlike irons, woods offer “sweet spots” or bigger hitting areas. Designed as such a way the bottoms glide over the surface of the ground without friction are fairway woods. Further, the length of these woods is usually greater than the length of comparable irons. In this case, compared to a 6-iron, a 4-wood is longer. These are the reasons why women usually find that woods are easier to shoot with, get better distance than irons do, and are more likely to launch the ball.
Also available for the short game are specialized clubs. These golf clubs should be short enough to allow you to get the right under the ball and just feel right when you swing and feel light as well. It can be handy to have an 8- and 9-iron or pitching wedge when a short approach would require precision rather than distance. It’s time to pull out the putter once the ball is on the green. A putter that’s less than 33″ in length is what women shorter than 5’5″ should choose. Different lengths is what taller women should try until they find just the right putter.
Women who love to golf shouldn’t compromise their comfort or performance by settling for men’s clubs. Specialized women’s golf clubs can turn a good game into a great one because they can make all the difference.
