Determining Wrist-to-Floor MeasurementThe chart below helps you determine if you should have your clubs altered from the standard size based on your height and wrist-to-floor measurement.
To determine your wrist-to-floor measurement wear non golf shoes and stand on a hard surface with your arms hanging relaxed at your sides. Then have someone measure from the point where your hand meets your wrist (as shown in the diagram below) to the floor. With this measurement and your height, we will be able to determine the correct club length for you.
Note: Club length alterations given are in inches. For example, +1.75" means that your clubs should be made to be 1.75" longer than standard length. A -0.5" instructs us to build your clubs to be 0.5" shorter than standard length. A Std. means that the proper club length for you is Standard. Use the Chart to determine how much longer or shorter (than standard) your club length should be by finding where Your Height and Wrist-to-Floor Measurements intersect:
Shaft flex, a measurement of how much a shaft will bend under a certain load, is directly related to the trajectory, distance and feel. The proper shaft flex for your swing speed helps produce the optimal trajectory for your shots. Flex Chart: Use the Charts below to determine the proper flex. The charts below are for consistent carry yardages only (don't include roll).
Generally, taller players require longer clubs and shorter players require shorter clubs. In metal woods your skill level will dictate the need for additional length. A shorter driver may increase distance for a player who has difficulty making solid contact. Putter length is based on a golfer's posture and hand position at address. Use the chart below to determine the proper shaft length.
Grip size plays a significant role in the shape of every golfer's shot. Use the chart below to determine the proper grip size for the clubs. Too large a grip can limit the golfer's ability to properly release the wrists through the impact area (resulting in a block and/or fade), while too small a grip can cause an early release (resulting in a pull and/or draw).
