Yesterday while at the Coates LPGA Championship they had an area for trying their clubs.  I'm wondering if anyone has had the opportunity to try them.   I did try to hit about 15 balls and after not hitting one good one that was enough for me.   The club just didn't feel right but it did look good being all black.  It was a 21 degree hybrid that I tried and the few shots that actually got airborne didn't go anywhere and had a wild slice on it.   It could have just been the shaft combination but I decided I wasn't going to try any others as I've never tried a club that went so bad.

I wonder if there's really a market for a more female oriented 'player's' club. It seems to me that golf equipment is mostly engineered relative to the physics of the general swing, and then fit to individual players. Off the rack clubs are generic to both men and women. Do women with higher swing speeds really need a different club than men, or do they just need to be fit into their equipment? I kind of feel the latter.

I'm with you sparkler.  A golfer is a golfer.  Clubs need to suit their physical characteristics and swing dynamics, not their gender.
