Women's / Ladies Irons | Ladies Golf Club Reviews

ladies ironsWomen’s clubs used to be terribly difficult to shop for. While women have been golfing for almost as long as men, it seems this would be somewhat difficult to believe. However, just as it was difficult to find anything other than traditional right-handed golf clubs, so it was difficult to find golf clubs for women.

Why? Often, club manufacturers wouldn’t make any distinctions between men’s and women’s clubs. It was almost as if some chauvinist somewhere was trying to make some kind of statement like, “If they’re going to play this game, they’re going to have to use our clubs.”

Ridiculous. While this is not always the case, let’s face it — women are traditionally shorter than men, have shorter arms, and swing slightly slower. This is enough to warrant a completely different design of club than an average five-foot, ten-inch man.

The Differences

Women’s clubs are shorter. Or petite. However you would like to put it, they are not just simply men’s clubs cut down and regripped — they are designed to be shorter and still line up correctly at address.

Women’s clubs often have a shaft that is lighter and more flexible than men’s golf club shafts. As the swing speed is generally slower (usually resulting in more accurate shots if the women have anything to say about it), this produces a greater “snapping” of the club at the bottom of the swing, resulting in higher clubhead speeds.

Women’s clubs often have heavier clubheads. While some argue this is only due to the reason of proper balancing with shorter clubs, I tend to believe it is also to generate a higher clubhead speed to compensate for a shot that may not naturally go as far as a shot from a men’s club.

It Can Make The Men Jealous At Times

It is evident by some reviews that a well-designed set of irons specifically for women can give even more of an edge for the female golfer, like these R7 Irons by TaylorMade. Let’s face it. Women often don’t feel the need to attempt and “muscle” the ball farther down the fairway — thereby trusting the clubs to behave the way they were intended to work and sending shots down the middle of the fairway. In addition, women’s sets have tended to favor the introduction of the hybrid movement well — giving ladies a nice fairway club to increase distance.
