Today it is 45”, and some manufacturers have even gone to 45 1/2” as their norm. However, studies have shown that the single most important factor in creating distance with the driver is not the length of the shaft, but rather the golfer’s ability to hit the ball on the sweet spot of the club face.
Using the ratio of every 6′ of height there should be a 1′ change in length then there should be a 1 ½’ difference between their 5-irons. For example, recommend 36.5′ for the lady and 38′ for the man (or 36.75′ / 38.25′).
