    I agree on a shorter driver for an average or shorter height golfer. However, a tall golfer’s swing can be hurt by switching to a shorter driver particularly if that golfer’s swing is not especially upright. When a taller golfer with a medium or flat swing plane comes down to the ball the driver needs to be long enough so he (or she) can reach the ball without pulling the club towards his/her body to make contact (and cutting across the ball).
    If you analyze the ratio of driver length to the height of 5’9″ golfer and apply that same ratio to a taller golfer you will be surprised at what length is calculated. I am just over 6 feet tall and use a 47 inch driver because my natural tendency is a flat swing. I am more accurate with it than I ever was with shorter drivers. Since it works so well I made all of my clubs overlength. It also protects my back since I can stand up straighter (I am almost 70 and still hit the ball a long way).

      Same here but I am even taller at 6’6″ tall with average arm length but very long legs. I had my clubs extended, when made, a 1.5 inches longer than off the shelf length, all my clubs.

    what is the length of the shaft that I Should used on my three wood. My shaft on my Drive is 44.1/5 ins.?

    Standard shaft lengths for drivers is generally from 45 1/4 to 45 3/4. At 44 1/5 your shaft length is shorter than normal but if that is the right length for you then your 3 wood should about 42 1/2 to 43.
