Golf clubs for men and women Women differ in their length, weight and stiffness. Since men, on average, are taller, weigh more and have more strength, they need less energy in the clubs they use to hit the ball at the same distance. Because the driver is generally used to obtain maximum distance, women will want one that provides power without sacrificing control.
If you want to hit the ball harder, remember that Strength = Mass x Acceleration. The more mass there is in the head of the club, the more force you will be able to generate. Women's drivers offer large head sizes to give you more strength, while offering a larger impact area to provide more control.
Angle of the head
Due to their slower swing speeds, women have more difficulty in raising the ball in the air than men. For this reason, the driver of a woman will have a greater angle of inclination in order to project the ball upwards.
Drivers for women are more flexible than shorter suits for women, which are stiffer in an effort to increase control. The more flexible the shaft, the more distance is produced by the added rebound effect. Think of a child jumping on a trampoline and one with a jump rope on a concrete sidewalk. The child on the trampoline will jump much higher, while the child on the trampoline will have more control when it lands. Graphite rods are more flexible than those made with other materials, so look for graphite rods when you buy a driver for women.
The heavier the club, the slower the swing. Since women tend to have less muscle mass than men of the same size, they will be able to generate less speed with the head of a heavier stick, so the drivers for women are lighter.
Women's drivers are usually longer because the clubhead is further away from the ball and takes longer to reach it, giving it more time for acceleration to occur, increasing the speed of the head on impact. "Longer" is a relative term, because the clubs must be in shape for the player based on the height and length of the arm. However, for a man and a woman of the same height and same length of arms, the woman might want a longer driver.
Women's clubs have jaws that are narrower and shorter.
Drivers for women are available with grips in more colors than those for men.
