Over the weekend, I had the pleasure of making couple kid’s clubs, all custom-fitted to fit one of my friend’s daughters. You see, the golfing world still doesn’t make enough different sizes for golfers under 5 years of age. Meaning the only way to get your kids to play golf early in life is to cut existing clubs or make them yourself.
Well, I’ve documented the process while I was making these super-short golf clubs detailing how to cut the golf shaft, put the ferrule on, install the clubhead, and also install the golf grip.
This is a great skill to learn and it doesn’t take long to make a golf club. Plus, you will save a bunch of money the next time you need a new club or your children need golf clubs.
I did the 7-iron for about $20 and the driver for about $30, still beats buying them off golf retail stores.
Whether your toddler is a 12 month year old who’s 1.5 feet tall or a 3 year old 2.5 feet tall, making custom-fit golf clubs can dramatically improve chances of your child playing better golf.
The problem is that most of toddler/junior golf clubs bought off the rack at the retail stores or online are too long for these young, aspiring golfers.
If you want your child to be as good as Tiger Woods or to simply enjoy golf at an early age, it’s vital that you either cut junior golf clubs to fit their height or make toddler golf clubs from scratch as I am showing you in this blog post.
