The chart itself is quite easy to follow, as you’ll be able to locate the exact length that will fit your height with ease. Also, you can find this quick video which will further explain it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_lSrZsG9lew 

Shaft Length

Determining shaft lengths is not typically rocket science. Taller players will usually require longer shafts, and shorter players will use the latter.

Having the correct length to your play-style and body type will enhance your game and give you ultimate comfort-ability during play.

There are a few rules that apply well to different types of clubs and how to determine their length.

Driver- Length can be dependent on ability to make contact

Metal woods- Pure technique and ability

Putters- Based on stature and positioning

Standard Shaft Lengths

Graphite Driver- 45”

Steel Driver- 44”

3 Wood- 43”

5 Wood- 42”

7 Wood- 41”

3 Iron- 39”

4 Iron- 38.5”

5 Iron- 38”

6 Iron- 37.5”

7 Iron- 37”

8 Iron- 36.5”

9 Iron- 36”

PW- 35.75”

SW- 35.5”

Shaft Flex

Shaft flex is also an important aspect of your shaft as well. This is how much pressure is allowed on shafts to bend, creating your power and torque throughout hits.

If properly fitted, you’ll see increases in both your distance and accuracy. You’ll determine which shaft flex is perfect for you depending on your hit distance. This generally includes your drive and clubs that are used from 150 yards (most likely irons).

Based on those results, you’ll be recommended with the type of flex that is best suited for you. The levels of shaft flex are:

Ladies Flex

Soft Regular Flex

Mid Flex

Stiff Flex

Extra-Stiff Flex

Senior Flex

Why is Golf Club Length Important?

If you are asking yourself why golf club length is as important as it is made out to be, then reading will certainly answer all your questions. For starters, the length of your golf club will affect every aspect of how you play. Check out the list below for what all golf club length will affect:

Distance

Power

Technique

Spin

Height

Rhythm

Control

Just about any area of play will be changed dependent on your length of your golf clubs. For distance, it length can add and take off how much torque you are able to generate from your swings.

Power is changed due to again, how much you are able to generate from your swings. Improper club fitting may result in lack of power in your hits, directly affecting your game.

Technique is targeted here as well, due to length shaping how you follow through your swing. Technique is one of the most important aspects of the game of golf and getting properly fitted for your clubs will only improve this area of your game tremendously.

Spin and height come from your power and technique, which we covered already is affected by club length.

Finally, we get into rhythm and control. These two go hand and hand, as they serve as the core elements to a perfect swing. If your base mechanics are not in sync, you are bound to perform poorly.

It is safe to say; club length is a serious component of anyone’s game. If it is not up to speed on what it should be, it could have negative impacts on your performance.

Where to Find Custom Clubs?

Custom clubs can be purchased both in-store and online through many golf retailers. However, if you are truly wanting the most out of the clubs, I’d recommend that you go in person, as you’ll have more personal help, and can feel out the different sizes physically.

Also, there is no specific brand that will offer you the “best” custom club, either. Clubs are all dependent on your level of play and what you are willing to pay. Of course, some clubs outshine others, but no one club currently on the market is on top in terms of being custom.

If you are searching for a top club though, these will usually be from Callaway, TaylorMade, and more, and will be balanced throughout the club, having all of the latest tech available. Usually, golf stores will do a great job of explaining what is more cutting edge over other clubs, and can help you build a great set based off your budget.

Ideal Lengths

It should be noted as well that each type of club will have its ideal length. You’ll find that each club may vary in length to give you the best customization possible. Understanding the standard lengths will help you when evaluating yourself for custom lengths.

Standard sizes are good to go off on, especially if you aren’t comfortable with the size that is given to you in the chart. From here, you can use standard sizing as a base to see where you want to go.

As mentioned above, you can use the list to find out what size works for you. Keep in mind that ideal lengths and standard lengths are different when looking into shafts.

Grip Size

Once you have established your perfect set of clubs, you’ll want to make sure that you also get the right grip size for yourself as well. These are much easier to size than clubs, as they have specific sizes to them, listed below:

Cadet extra large- Oversize

Extra large- Oversize

Cadet large- Mid size

Large- Mid Size

Cadet medium large- Standard

Medium large- Standard

Cadet medium- Standard

Medium- Standard

Cadet Small- Lady Standard

Small- Lady Standard

Make sure not to overlook grip sizing, as it is quite important to your swing. If not fitted properly, it could ruin any customization you have done to the sizing of your clubs, so make sure they are correct.

Wrap-Up

After you’ve found your perfect length, weight, grip, and flex, you’ll be on your way to having your best performances on the course. Remember, each one of these parts are crucial into creating your ultimate customized club set.

If you ignore or lack in personalizing in one of these areas, it may be costly and have a negative affect on your game, rather than improving it.
