I was pretty clueless on equipping a kid. My boy, 12, competed in the Jr PGA for the first time this year. One of the first things that I noticed is the equipment these kids were playing with. Most had gear more expensive than mine, more expensive than the gear my adult partners play with. :swoon:  Well, I brought my boy with me to the fitter yesterday to learn more about how to fit a growing kid. By boy had a desire/some need for a new driver. Luckily, I've been hoarding cash lately. After much trial and error with the fitter we settled on an M2 with a ladies' shaft. It appears he might be the longest driver in my regular foursome with that club. He was smashing it out of sight. This year, he's to choke up about an inch, grip the club at the top next year - then an easy shaft change as required later. There was a kid's Ping driver that he really liked, too. But, it had a fixed shaft that can't be easily changed out. I don't know anything about changing these composite shafts, but imagine it could be pretty involved. I think for the irons in our future I might learn how to change iron shafts and grip clubs, as I have a big pile of clubs in the garage...

He agreed to mow the lawns and scrub the pool for dad regularly after seeing me hand over the cash...
