Looking to get a set for my ten year old. He’s just gotten into golf within the last year, but was bit hard.

He’s 10, sizes up at the lower end of the Green 57. His driver swing speed is 62 mph, but I think there is room for easy speed with some formal lessons.

Based on his numbers, it looks like he’s on the cusp of Tour vs Ultralite. My instinct says to get the 7 club Tour Set in Green 57 (TS3). I think it would give him room to grow skill and speed wise. Is this off base? Should he be in UL?

If TS3 is the way to go, I noticed the 7 set club has steel shafted irons. Is that OK, or is it worth paying the extra $100 for graphite in irons?

    You can get an 8-club iron set with graphite shafts. No driver, wood, putter or bag though.

    This was 16 years ago, but I went the US Kids club route for my son, and it worked out pretty well. The fact that he grew so quickly and had to change clubs every season was a deciding factor. If memory serves he had 8 club sets.

    Unless he can tip the scale at triple digit, stay with graphite

    Perfect. I love definitive answers. I’m thinking of ordering the TS3 Driver, 4h, 6i, 8i, PW, SW with graphite and throwing them in a Jones Cadet Junior bag.

    Get more clubs than you think he needs. It's always cheaper to get full set now than to get less and then try to piece meal later.
