Day 136. Schedule permitted 20 minutes and I was near a golf course (the par-3 night-lit one near my soon-to-be-former house), so I putted. 6' "make them all" followed by 4'. Somehow made more 6' on first pass than 4' (6 vs 5), but finished 4' in two iterations (5,5,2) versus more for 6'.
Intermediate goal is to make all 4' within two passes (and then do an around-the-world becomes the goal). Not sure an appropriate goal for 6', maybe making (6,3,3) or (6,3,2,1) a few times in a row would be good?
I'm a woman, 6' tall. It's all about swing speed, what feels good, and how well you can control it. Rogues are on sale right now and they're a good driver. I assume that's your reason for choosing them.
The men's Callaway Rogue driver is 45.5". The women's is 44.5". But there really is no standard. It's all about what works best for you.
I play a Callaway Great Big Bertha Epic and cut the shaft to 44.5" for control. I use a "men's" R shaft because of my swing speed which is in the low mid-90s.
If yours is in the range of 80 - 95 you can use a Regular flex shaft. If it's in the 75 - 85 mph range you can use a men's light flex shaft (they don't call it senior anymore... lol because people don't want to feel old). Women's flex is for speeds below 75. You'll find this out when you go on a launch monitor at the golf shop. You'll do this before you buy the club, right? Make sure you're fit for the club.
Here's the deal, if the 45.5" is too long, you can always have the shaft "butt cut" 1". It will make the club feel lighter to swing but won't reduce the mass of the club head at all. You do not have to add lead tape to the club head and bring up the swing weight. But before you do that I'd wrap some electrical tape around the butt end of the grip about 1/8" thick with the bottom of that 1" down from the end of the grip. Then take it to the range, maybe play a practice round or two with it and see if you like that. If you liked it better longer, it's easy to remove the tape.
This isn't poor etiquette. It's common sense. The only time this is an issue is if you strike when someone else finally decides to strike at that same moment after 30 practice swings. Then it's your fault for sure
Most golfers select a SW for the bunker conditions they face most often. Then, you can make adjustments for the odd course you play.
If you normally have firm sand and play a course with soft sand, you can still get it out if you have good technique - you may not get it as close. It's about trade-offs.
Not that many amateur players have a second SW with different bounce.
