Understanding the finer details of your golf clubs | The Build Shop

Welcome to The Build Shop, a new GOLF.com video series produced in partnership with Golf Pride. This week with the help of equipment editor and experienced club builder Ryan Barath, we take you inside the finer details of your golf clubs.

Whether you’re talking with a teacher, club fitter, or just a fellow golf gearhead, a lot of golf club terminology can get used that you might not quite understand — but not anymore.

At GOLF, it’s our goal to help you better understand everything that is golf, from rules to instruction, and all the way to the equipment that goes into your bag. The more you know, the more fun you’re going to have.

To kick off our newest video series, we take a closer look at golf clubs’ specs, including length, lie, and loft along with how to make sure your grips are sized properly next time you go to regrip your clubs.
