How short should my golf club be?

I have a 7 wood that is 42 inches in length, i am 5' 4" and when i grip the club without choking down on the grip i notice that the clubhead does not rest flat on the ground like it is supposed to. but when i choke down on the club about 4 inches, the club feels more comfortable and rests flat on the ground. if i was to cut the shaft about 4 inches what kind of effects would this have on the performance, because i understand that the longer the club the farther the distance, so would i be losing any distance?




  1. Have yourself fitted. Looks like you'll need to have your clubs' lie angle adjusted to fit you better. Avoid shortening shaft lengths (some say never, some say minor changes ok) -- you _will_ lose distance with shorter shafts.
