Junior Golf Clubs Done Right

The great thing about golf is that everyone can play—including children. CCCGOLFUSA's junior golf clubs can help your child get out and enjoy the great outdoors. We specialize in U.S. Kids Golf clubs for children and young players. Contact us in Lebanon, Tennessee, for more information.

A Guide To Buying Junior Golf Clubs

CCCGOLFUSA put the following guide together to help you choose the perfect club for your child. Learn more about choosing a club from Frank Mantua, Director of Golf, US Golf Camps.


Length

Clubs that are too long cause the junior to choke down on the grip, and choking down more than 2" can ruin a swing. It requires the youngster to manipulate the swing to get the club around the body. Short clubs create a hunched-over posture and dipping during the swing that results in weak or missed shots. Children are born with great natural hitting ability. Let them swing away with the correct length clubs.

Weight

In order for the junior to have a consistent swing, he or she needs a club that can be taken to the top of the backswing. You need clubs that are light enough to fit your child's age, height, weight, and athletic ability.

Junior Golfers

Grip Size

Paying attention to grip size for young golfers is a particular advantage of a custom fit. If a grip is too oversized, it can affect swing mechanics. When buying a set of junior clubs, make sure that they are fitted with grips that match the player's hand size.

Set Make Up

Start the beginner with clubs that he or she can manage. Generally, this means a high-lofted driver, a hybrid utility club, 6 and 8 irons, a sand wedge, and a putter. For the advanced player, the scoring clubs (driver, wedges, and putter) are crucial to success and should be custom fit for optimum success.
