Driver Shaft Length
You want to gain more distance from your drives.
You can increase clubhead speed and arc by using a longer shaft. Many women golfers find they can hit more consistently and much further when using a standard length driver for men.
Go to your local sporting goods store or pro shop and try out several drivers, all an inch longer than what is recommended for your height. You may need to hit a dozen balls before you get a natural feel for the swing but once you do, you will be impressed with the distance. Some players find they swing better overall with a club that is up to 5 inches longer than their usual length; so do not be afraid to experiment with the different drivers and shaft lengths to find the best club for you.
