I didn't know if this should go here or the equipment forum, but I'm a new golfer ( almost 5 months) and went to a golf store once and swung a bunch of clubs and as soon as I swung a Ping G Le, I loved it. But it's really pricey! I liked the weight, it was less head heavy, and lighter than others I tried. I really liked that! I already have trouble with sway and balance. I'm currently using a Goodwill set of old Wilson clubs, but would really like to upgrade. I'm 58 and 5'1". Are there any other light weight clubs out there, new or old, that I should look at?
Thanks in advance!
You may have better luck getting the mods to move this to Equipment. Most women specific sets will have lower swingweight (roughly how heavy the club head feels when holding the grip end) and lower overall weight as well due to the lighter shafts. As a beginner any entry level women's specific set will be better than what you are currently playing. Unfortunately I don't play women's clubs so my knowledge of what's available is limited.
Eventually if you stick with and enjoy the game you may want to get fit for clubs which will generally get you a set you can play much better with. This is typically a more expensive route, but you might look around your local area for clubfitters and checkout what clubs they carry, how much they charge for a fitting, and whether they have fit many women before (important).
