Probably standard. Whatever that is. It used to mean a 43" driver,
but now it might mean a 44.5" one.

There are a number of methods to determine whether you should use overlength clubs. One is to measure the height of your fingertips. 27" would be standard, with the club length changed 1/4 to 1/2 the difference. E.g. if your fingertip height is 28", add 1/4 to 1/2 inch. Another is to use the height of the top of your hand (at the seam with the wrist),with 34" being standard, and the adjustment 1/4 of the difference from standard.

A golfer should use clubs of a length that is comfortable for him or her. Generally, that means that a taller golfer will use longer clubs and a shorter golfer, shorter clubs.
