Things for senior golfers to consider

Simple changes in the traditional club design can make a huge difference.

Before choosing a specific club, there are a number of things to consider.

Senior golfers should take a look at their body and playing style.

By taking notice of changes in ability, golfers can pinpoint where their problems lie.

From there, finding the right club is a breeze..

The Shaft

Weight of The shaft plays a big role.

It’s a good idea to look for a lighter shaft that weighs no more than 60 grams.

Senior golfers can benefit from a lighter option because it’s easier to handle and can improve speed.

Shafts with a weight around 50-55 grams will affect swing speed and timing.

Shafts should bend slightly during the swing to build up energy and power.

Generally, it’s a good idea to look for flexible clubs.

The more flexible a club is, the more speed and power it will provide.

Club Head Loft

The loft of the head affects the ball’s launch angle during a drive.

This launch angle is a pivotal component, as it changes the ball’s distance.

With a slow swing speed, golfers should look for clubs that provide a high degree of loft.

This helps get the ball higher into the air for more distance.

Many manufacturers provide information about the loft of their clubs to make selection easier.

Depending on the swing speed, senior golfers can look for lofts up to 15 degrees for improvement.

Club Face and Head Design

Hitting the ball on the appropriate part of the club head is crucial.

A slight miscalculation can send the ball in the wrong direction with inadequate power.

Seniors experiencing accuracy issues should look for club heads designed with a larger sweet spot.

A larger club face and perimeter weighting increases the successful surface area on the club.

It’ll be easier to make a successful shot without having to hit the ball perfectly.
