My wife passed away and I'd like to cut her clubs down to an appropriate
length for my grandson. He's 53" tall and I have 1, 3 & 5 woods, 3,5,7,9
irons & putter. Can anyone help me?

Just think of the pride the kid will feel when he hits a good shot and
proudly boasts, "That one was for granny!" And his friends will all
be envious that he's playing with grandma's clubs. Plus, when he
misses a putt he can say, "Shit, I'm puttin like an old lady!"

Oh c'mon, there are lots easier ways to get your grandson to stop
speaking to you.

I understood is not a great idea to cut shafts as it alters flex and
kick points etc. which may not be a problem if your Grandson is just
starting out and just wants a set to knock about till he gets good.
Don't cut the putter your grandson will soon grow into it and it might
become a favorite for many years once he does.

Since it's not a complete set, probably not worth it. Setting aside the
sentimental reasons for passing on his gramdma's clubs, we don't know
how old or how accomplished he is. If golf is important to you and your
late wife, why not buy a starter junior set along with a package of 3-4
lessons and say, "Grandma really enjoyed golf. Let's see how you like
it, and if you do, we'll do it together after you've had a couple of
lessons."
