Junior Golf: Custom Clubs-Yes Or No

imageIn today’s Friday Flop Shot we will begin our evaluation of everything involved in going the custom club route so that you and your junior golfer can decide if custom clubs make sense for him.

Who can benefit from custom golf clubs? Of course here, we’re primarily talking about the junior golfer(s) in your house. Who else can we consider? Our family is full of personalities that love to upgrade everything from buying the top trim level of our cars to custom golf clubs, it’s what we do. Every golfer who wants to improve his game should seriously consider custom clubs. They are truly amazing when done properly. Please remember that custom clubs require a commitment to considerable range time to get used to them. But they are worth it! (offcoursegolf.com)

Getting back to your son, you actually started down the path of customizing his golf clubs when you had them fitted to him. Usually with beginners and lower to intermediate juniors this means making sure his clubs are the correct length and weight. This is essential and needs to be done with every junior golfer no matter their age or skill level. Clubs that are the wrong length or are too heavy, make it impossible to hit consistent golf shots. Every time your son grows an inch you need to check the length and weight of his clubs. Your PGA Professional can do this.

If your son is an improving junior golfer who expects to be competitive in elite junior golf events, junior high, high school and perhaps even college golf, you must give him every advantage possible. There is plenty of tough competition and your son needs good equipment that suits his skill level, swing, strength, flexibility and body style. Giving him the best tools means more consistent shots which means lower scores. Check out custom engraving on S3’s wedges.

So yes, our family, I, Linda and S3, believe that custom clubs are very important to playing great golf. Now understand that there are plenty of kids playing with basically factory, off-the-rack golf clubs and some of them play really well. The question always is: how much better would your son play with golf clubs customized to him? Where do you start? We’ll look at that next post.

See you on #1 tee… Sam
