Hi, I made an android app (free app) for shaft length calculation and lie angle. It is especialy made for all golfers who do not fit to the standard. Mostly women, tall and short golfers.

I would be glad if the app can help you: go to google play store and search for "biofitting"

Please feel free to ask me or to make a review at google play store. I try to make the iTunes version too.

This site does reviews, where one (or more) of us dives in and gives it a test drive. Let us know if you're interested in that.

Basically all that matters is your wrist to floor, or wrist to ground measurement. Some really tall guys also have really long arms.

If you measure this distance in the setup position you are right. If you stand straight than there are very big differences possible. For a standard guy the difference can be from plus 2 inch to minus 3 inch. Try it out and compare some players. The app needs only the joints measurements (hip, wrist, shoulder) of the body the rest is geometry that does not fail.

Taller folks generally do have longer arms since one's measurement from finger tip to finger tip (wing span) generally correlates with their height.

Agree!  the simple wrist to floor while standing straight up does not tell the whole story.  the geometry of a 5'10 player and a 6'5" player are completely different and they each inherently have different fitting issues / effects due to their height.
