Design and Feel

Golf clubs for juniors are generally designed to hit the ball higher in relation to how much smaller and weaker children are compared to adults. The purpose of junior golf clubs is to get the basics right first and from there ensure they enjoy the game as much as possible so that they continue to play as they grow up.

Feel is less of a factor in junior golf clubs.

The lofts are generally much higher to help launch the ball into the air. There is also more offset on each club to offer some assistance in squaring the face at impact.

Again it comes down to making sure you have purchased the correct set for your child to ensure he/she is able to hit the ball effectively without struggling with the length or weight of the club.
