Why can’t I just cut down my old clubs? Does my young player REALLY need expensive junior golf clubs?

Article by Len McGrane

Junior golf is popular. There are around 36 million serious and casual golfers in North America, and 15 percent of them are still at school. That’s six million golfers aged between five and 18 years.

They have been drawn into golf for the same reasons we have. The thrill of the game, the compulsion, the excitement and satisfactions of golf appeal to them also. But their height and build are different to us adults, so they need different clubs.

In fact, junior golf clubs are a whole new industry, which the major manufacturers know very well. All the big brand clubs and sets are now available for young players.

Twenty years ago I could have gotten away with cutting down the shaft of my old set and giving them to the young golfer in my family. I can still do this, but he will have an easier game, hit more successfully and get more enjoyment from his play if he has a set of modern clubs specifically designed for his age group. There are several reasons for this.

For one thing, the materials and design of junior golf clubs has made giant gains in the last couple of decades. The speed of the ball, and accuracy, is influenced by the weight of the club, as you know. And junior golf clubs are designed with a shaft length that fits the height of the player and with a lighter head than an adult golf club, which makes it easier for young players to strike well.

That can be proved in the results. Not only the results on the score cards of young players, but also in the amount of pleasure they get from the game. Both of which translate into an increased likelihood they will stay with golf through into their adult years.

Junior clubs are best for these young people. No argument.

So a good set of junior golf clubs is a solid investment in the future of the game and your son or daughter’s long term interest in playing golf.

Of course this does not come for free. We all know kids grow, and the clubs they use in high school will be a different length to the ones they started on years earlier. But prudent shopping for the cheapest buys at the discount stores can keep them affordable as you upgrade (and resell the too-small sets) through their growing years.

So, go ahead and look around for junior golf clubs for your young golfer.
