How do I work out the best fit for my child?
To make things nice and simple, use the Ping Colour Code Chart below to find the best fit. You can print this out if needed, which may help when measuring your child.
Working Out the Lie Angle (Colour Code) needed for irons, wedges and putters.
Step One – Measure between the wrist and the floor in either inches or centimetres and find the measurement on the left-hand side of the chart. Make sure you measure accurately from the crease of the wrist. A top tip is to be wearing golf shoes or something similar, like trainers that have the same heel depth)
Step Two – Measure the overall height of the junior golfer in either inches or centimetres and find the measurement along the top of the chart. Again, make sure golf shoes or something similar are being worn.
Step Three – Using both measurements find the box where they intercept. For example, follow the row from the wrist to floor measurement and stop when it intercepts the column of your overall height.
This will then give you a colour. These colours refer to lie angles, with green as 2 degrees upright, blue as 1 degree upright, black as standard, red as 1 degree flat, and orange as 2 degrees flat. If you do not produce colour, you must go down to green or orange! If two colours are in the same box, go with the greater colour. Write this colour down as you will need it to order.
What flex do I need? - Using the same method above, look again at the box where the two measurements meet. Looking at the top of the chart, you will see the shaft flex as either regular or stiff. Again, write this down as you will need it when ordering.
What length do I need? - Using the same method, look again at the box where the two measurements meet. Looking to the bottom of the chart, you will see the +'s or -'s that need to be added or removed from a standard length club. There are separate results for (Drivers, Fairways and Hybrids), Irons and Putters. Again, write this down as you will need it when ordering.
What golf bag would best fit these clubs? - Using the same method, look again at the box where the two measurements meet. Follow the chart down, and you will see either a Ping Prodi G 30 Bag or Ping Hoofer Prodi G34, depending on the golfer's height
