These clubs prove days of women-specific sets taking a back seat are over

Every person is built differently. Hence the importance of custom club-fitting. In order to play your best golf possible, its imperative to find clubs that are the right length, weight, size, design and shape for you. And while its true that the ball doesn’t care whether you’re male or female, it does care about what happens at impact, and there are variances here between the sexes that have long gone ignored.
Compared to the average male golfer, female golfers tend to produce slightly slower swing speeds. Less speed, as you can imagine, usually leads to less distance and typically a lower ball flight. To help ladies find the speed and launch they need, manufacturers design clubs specifically for women. They’re lighter, more forgiving and make it easy to create launch and spin. These female-specific builds also have shorter lengths, more flexible shafts, thinner grips and are often engineered to help fight a slice.
Thankfully, the days of women-specific sets taking a back seat to club design in general are over.
If you’re a female player looking to hit long and towering golf shots, or simply interested in more feminine colorways, you definitely should consider the smart-looking new offerings from Ping, Callaway and Cobra below. The game’s hard enough without limiting your chances by swinging clubs that are too heavy, too long and unforgiving — or by simply fighting your anatomy.
