Wife needs ladies clubs - 5-foot-2

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

My wife is a novice (started about 2 months ago), and I bought her a low-cost "full set," not knowing if she'd stick with it or not. Turns out she really likes golfing, and so now I'm looking to find a set of "real" clubs to carry her into an intermediate skill level. Thing is, she's short. 5'2" on a tall day, about 112 pounds. Does she need "petite" women's' clubs, or will standard women's clubs do? Very few manufacturers offer "petite" versions of their women's clubs, I notice. Is there a comprehensive list some where?

I've never seen "petite" women's clubs.  Women's clubs are about an inch shorter than men's clubs, are lighter, and have a lower swingweight; maybe a little flatter lie angle too. 

There are many very short women playing on the LPGA Tour, so the clubs she should get will be those that fit her swing.  She should be measured for length and lie angle, and the flex of the shaft should be appropriate for her swing speed.  My wife plays men's senior flex, but she may have to change as her speed has slowed down now that she's in her 60's.  

If she's really interested in playing golf, getting clubs that fit properly is a good investment that will help her improve quicker.  She may need a flatter lie angle and the proper angle could be difficult to achieve with off-the-rack clubs.  Ping is always a good choice since their clubs are fit by lie angle, which is why they are popular with junior golf players.

Eeeeech, we don't have a good fitter in our town, so I was hoping to avoid that. But I kinda figured a fitting would be necessary.

Hi Matt!

There are a few clubs out there that offer petite sized clubs for women! I would definitely recommend the petite size for her being only 5"2

My daughter is about 5' 3", and I believe her irons are considered to be women's standard length.  I would definitely get her fit, as the length of her arms will determine the length needed.  

That being said, my daughter also pulls my driver and hybrid out of my bag and just chokes up on them like Brooke Henderson, so there's that.

My wife is also 5'2". I got her a set of cobra F-max one length at women's 8 iron length, a cobra one length hybrid and the junior cobra F9 driver (comes with a shorter shaft and a 15g lighter clubhead then the normal version). She has gear ball striking since switching to a one length set. For reference, she has been golfing for 2 years now

Golf works can assist. The LTech are great ladies clubs. They are ultra game improvement. My wife loves them. They will know the specs with a few questions answered.
