NiftyNiblick Posted November 13, 2015 Share Posted November 13, 2015 It has been my observation that when athletic young women take up golf, they often spray the sphere around pretty good with the cut-down fly rods that come with their new clubs. While young ladies rarely try to bypass lessons like their testosterone addled contemporaries, they often don't get fitted for their first clubs which are as likely as not gifts or hand me downs. A young lady that knows her way around a field hockey or soccer pitch, or a softball diamond, or a basketball or volleyball court can probably play better with my R-flex clubs than with the shafts that come on womens' model new clubs. If she has an aptitude for the game, S-flex is what most lady tournament players hit. A healthy young lady less athletically inclined is probably strong enough for A-flex. L-flex is probably better for later on in life. What made me notice this was a pair of athletic young girls that I played behind one day this summer. They both had pretty decent looking swings, but they both hit curveballs in both, not one direction. It looked as though they were dealing with more torque than they needed. When I caught up to them on the tee of a par three, one was playing a forty year old set of Lynx Tigresses that probably belonged to her mom and the other had new Ping Rhapsodies with pastel colored shafts. How do you club builders out there fit young women golfers? Do most of them really need L-flex? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
