Differences in Men's and Women's Golf Clubs


Differences in Men's and Women's Golf Clubs

Typically, most women's clubs will be made one inch shorter in length for each club, and may be designed with more loft on the face than men's clubs.

In addition, the shafts installed in women's clubs are more flexible than the shafts in men's clubs.

Finally, these differences most typically seen on standard-made clubs bought off-the-rack are implemented because companies assume that all women golfers have slower swing speeds and are less athletically inclined than men.

Other differences between men and women is like the body mass index is calculated, or BMI. The "Body Mass Index", or BMI, is a measurement of body fat calculated from an adult's weight and height. BMI does not measure body fat directly, but it's a reliable indicator of body fatness for most people. Body fat is required as a concentrated energy source for our muscles, it's a storage substance for the body's extra calories and it fills fat cells (adipose tissue) that help insulate the body. Fat is stored until your body needs a backup energy source.
You can determine now your body fat percentage with our body fat calculator. Use a tape measure to determine your waist, wrist, hips and forearm. Then input your height, weight and gender to receive a body fat index based on average values. To lose fat you can either burn more calories, take less calories, or both. The good part it that there are a million different combination of ways to do this, some that you will find very easy and some that you will find nearly impossible to carry out. The key is to find what works for you!
