I think that would be a good idea too. But getting his specs first is still highly recommended for two reasons. One, having clubs that fit properly (or atleast in the ballpark) will help CE make his natural swing instead of manipulating the club and body to hit the ball. 2) Having clubs that are too long or too short can really do a number on one's body. You're chances of getting injured increase if you're clubs don't fit you well.
Like I've said earlier, you can get a set of used clubs, or even a cheaper set somewhere, just make sure they're close to the specs that you need so there won't be long-term effects of playing improper equipment.
