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.
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.
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-iron and #8-iron, a sand wedge, and a putter. For the advanced junior player especially, the scoring clubs (driver, wedges, and putter) are crucial to success and should be custom fit for optimum success.
