    For players that are 5’6” or shorter - which includes many LPGA players, I see many on the LPGA playing clubs with substantial choking down on the grip. Brooke Henderson had used a 48” long driver shaft but chocked down several inches. Driver length is now limited to 46”.

    Would this be from being used to buying off the rack clubs that are geared to taller players or is this a definitive choice to have an effect similar to a counter balanced shaft? On full shots, I prefer gripping the club at the top of the shaft. Just me.

    I would guess it’s more from taking up the game as a kid with small hands. Anthony Kim was probably the most exaggerated PGA player I saw doing it. The grips being thinner at the bottom make gripping in the fingers easier with small hands, even with undersized grips.
