My daughter has recently grown, a lot.  Sounds like I might have to make equitment changes sooner than later.  Couple questions as this would be our first sizeing up of clubs.  How do you know when its time? Is there a specific miss they would have? If you go based on US kids then should would fall into the next size up but I'm more worried about her performance being impacted by clubs to short on what kind of misses that will have. Do junior irons ever get fitted for lie angle adjustments as we do as adults? What age did most of yall look at adult style clubs.

I wouldn't worry about the misses being an impact as much as her comfort. A good golfer with solid mechanics can hit any club. They adjust and don't miss. But if her swing does not feel comfortable with the clubs she has, you may need to look at sizing up.

Constant tops are a big sign obviously, but I can hit my sons 54" and not top the ball as I can adjust, so it is hard to say there is a "standard miss" with ill-fitted clubs. My point is, what you may interpret as a miss, could just be her shot shape. If she develops a constant draw, but feels good with the clubs, then just play the draw. If she can't make center contact consistently then I would get her instructor/coach to look at her swing/clubs and evaluate.

The other day my boy was in the stall next to our club champ and hit his X shaft muscle back nine iron no problem.  All he said was, 'it's too heavy for me dad' and gave it back.
