What is Wrist to Floor Length?
Wrist-to-floor measurement is used to help determine the appropriate length of golf clubs for an individual player. It’s an important factor in ensuring that the clubs fit the golfer’s body and swing style, leading to more comfortable and effective play.
To figure out your measurement, stand up straight with your arms just hanging down to your sides. Have someone measure the distance from the bend in your wrist to the floor. That’s your “wrist to floor length.” Simple, right?
Now, why does this matter? People might be the same height but have different arm lengths. So this measurement helps find the perfect shaft length for your unique body. It’s like tailoring a suit – you want that perfect fit!
Using clubs that fit you right is like night and day. You’ll feel more comfortable, and your shots will be way more consistent.
If you’re really serious about it, you can even go to a professional club fitter. They’ll take this measurement and maybe a few others, then let you try out different clubs to find the ones that feel just right.
How to Interpret The Club Length in The Calculator Above
After using our calculator, you get a club length as measured from the standard golf club length. Let’s break down what that means, so you can really understand what you’re getting.
- Standard Club Length:This is like a baseline or starting point. Think of it as a one-size-fits-all club length that fits an average golfer’s height and arm length. It’s kind of like a medium-sized t-shirt in a clothing store.
- Your Custom Club Length:Based on your height and wrist to floor length, let’s imagine we’ve told you that your clubs need to be half an inch longer than the standard length. That means we’ve tailored the club length specifically to fit you, just like a custom-made suit.
- Why It Matters:Having a club that’s the right length for you makes everything feel more natural. Your stance will be more comfortable, your swing will feel smoother, and you’re likely to hit more consistent shots. It’s like wearing shoes that are the perfect size.
- Different Clubs, Different Lengths:Remember, not all clubs are the same length. Drivers are usually longer, while wedges are shorter. The recommendation is usually for a specific type of club (which is why our calculator allows you to enter your club type) and other clubs will be adjusted based on that.
- It’s All About You:In the end, these custom lengths are all about making the game more enjoyable and helping you play your best. So, if you have any concerns or questions, don’t hesitate to talk to the fitter or a golf pro. They’re there to help you out.
What is Club Lie Angle?
Picture your golf club as it’s resting on the ground in your playing stance. The Lie Angle is the angle formed between the center of the club shaft and the ground.
Imagine drawing a line from the middle of the shaft down to where the club’s sole (bottom) touches the ground. That angle is the Lie Angle.
The Lie Angle affects how the clubhead interacts with the ground at impact. If the Lie Angle is off, the clubhead might dig into the ground or skim over it, affecting the direction and accuracy of your shot.
- If the Lie Angle is too steep, the heel of the club will hit the ground first. The ball might shoot off to the left (for a right-handed player).
- If the Lie Angle is too shallow, the toe of the club will hit the ground first. The ball might head off to the right (for a right-handed player).
