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′).
Clubs are matched to your height and the distance between your hands and the ground. To find the right size clubs for your body, use recent height measurement to determine the proper angle for your clubs. It usually helps to have another person measure, so you get the most accurate measurements possible.

Do I need to get sized for golf clubs?
And the answer is absolutely yes, it’s worth getting fit for clubs you already have. Especially if you’re 5-foot-5, since a stock set of clubs isn’t likely to have the proper lie angle for you. Luckily, if that’s the case, it’s not a difficult fix.
Are golf clubs one size fits all?
There is no such thing as one-size-fits-all golf clubs. Golfers come in all shapes, sizes and swing skills, necessitating clubs with different lengths, weights, lofts and lie angles. If a club is too long, too light or too heavy, you will not consistently deliver the clubhead so it is square at impact.

Standard Length for Irons The same is true for graphite golf irons: the standard length for a 1 iron measures 40 inches, a 5 iron is 38 inches and a 9 iron is 36 inches. As is true for woods, the standard length measurement for women’s irons is 1 inch less for both steel and graphite irons.
For example, for a golfer that stands 6’2” and has a wrist-to-floor of 39”, the recommendation for proper club length would be 1/2” longer than standard length.
