Jaxx Golf is fast emerging as a major player in the UK junior equipment market and underlining its claim to hold 25 per-cent, has introduced clubs for a range of children aged between five and 14.
All the junior clubs it distributes from its Manchester base are built with a three-degree flat lie at address to suit younger golfers and can be bought as box sets or as individual clubs.
Oversize heads make the clubs easy to hit, and a low centre of gravity helps get the ball airborne. Woods and irons have been fitted with lightweight graphite shafts and a soft velvet junior grips.
Newly available is a four-ball mallet-style putter with milled polymer insert, a junior rescue club, stand bag (£25), trolley (£19) and waterproof suit (£34). Irons cost from £10 each and a box set (four irons, two woods, a putter and standbag) from £39.
"We take junior golf very seriously," said Jaxx Golf’s Phil Aitken. "We have a special fitting centre for children at our headquarters in Manchester and all the clubs are made with the appropriate head and swing weighting for children. They are not toys."
"We want children to enjoy the game and for parents to be assured that they are getting great value for money, as well as quality clubs."
