Hello I am new to the game of golf and have only been playing for a year to two years. Like all beginners I have struggled to make consistent contact with the ball. I have recently started experimenting with different clubs and brands. I recently bought a Nike Sasquatch Sumo 2 Driver and 4 hybrid and took them to the range to hit. Almost immediately I noticed how much easier these clubs were to hit then the ones I currently own. I was not aware until a friend of mine pointed out one day that the two clubs I bought were womens clubs!?

I am a pretty short guy 5'5 and am wondering if the shorter club lenghs are benefitting me because they are womans? I make much better contact with them then the same clubs I have.

Any help would be appreciated I would like to enjoy the game more.

Thanks Hector

Hey hector. No worries. I have picked up and hit womens clubs by mistake at golf galaxy. Likely they are very much less stiff of a shaft than your mens clubs. So they kick over at a different piont and feel totally different. The club doesnt care about genitalia, it only knows seing speed and angle. I think thats why you are liking them, but i could be wrong.

Welcome to the forum hector. Shorter length will likely help you if it fits your swing. I would recommend you spend some time and get a fitting. The length and shaft stiffness can be determined from that. Usually a driver and six iron will be used. To keep the cost down, they can cut down your current shafts to get the right length. I did this when I first started playing. I didn't need shorter shafts, but did end up going with lighter shafts.

Yep, shorter club will definitely help, especially in the beginning.    I"m a little taller than you, but when I started I had to cut 2" off my driver so I could at least make consistent contact with the ball.    Shorter clubs especially for someone of your stature will make the game a whole lot easier.   Nothing wrong with playing ladies clubs when you're learning ... if you get into it, maybe in a year or so, you can get fitted at a golf store & get a set that fits you once your swing is better developed.
