Junior Golf Clubs For Your Kids

Jun 19, 2008
Junior golf clubs and fitting them have long been ignored by the manufactures. For the most part, they just do not present many options in their offerings. In just the past few years this has started to change.

Having my own children, I understand that they grow and change rapidly. Many of us learned to play the game of golf with a cut down club from your dad. Even being cut down, it was usually too heavy for us and the extra weight made it difficult to swing the club. With new technology in the materials being used in the club's construction, junior golf clubs can be a better match than a "cut"down set. This is encouraging to all junior golfers as a properly fitted set of clubs will help them shoot lower scores and to have more fun.

Parents often ask if it really matters if their teenager needs to go through a fitting for junior golf clubs. With kids growing so quickly, it is important that they do go through a fitting for junior golf clubs. Why is it important? A properly weighted and fitted set of junior golf clubs will make swinging the golf clubs easier for your child and will result in them having more fun.

The correct length of the club as well as the correct weight of the club will be determined in a club fitting by a PGA Professional. There is some wiggle room here knowing that your teenager will keep growing. It is very important that they do not end up with junior golf clubs that are too heavy for them. You will be able to see them struggle at the top of their swing if the club is too heavy for them. It is possible that your early-teen son could be fit into a ladies shaft or a senior shaft depending on the amount of clubhead speed. This is a big reason why it is important that the club fitting session happens outside. Everyone's egos must be checked at the door and be in agreement that the best ball flight will determine the end decision and purpose.

When purchasing a new set of junior golf clubs, it will also be important to ask your professional if a trade-in and trade-up program is available. A few of the "major manufacturers" have such a program. However, not all professionals participate. How it typically works is once your child has out-grown their set of junior golf clubs you take them back to your professional and depending on what condition they are in you will be offered a set amount of money to use towards the new set that you will be purchasing. Obviously, the younger your child the more sense this makes as it cold save you quite a bit of money as your "little one" gets bigger and bigger.

To make the game enjoyable for your kids, it is important that they are properly fit for a set of junior golf clubs. A "cut down" club is usually too heavy for most juniors. A qualified PGA Professional can find a golf club that your junior can swing with ease and build a good foundation to enjoy the game of golf their entire life.
