There's not enough information given hereto know. Golf clubs should be fit to the height of your hand not your head. There are a few theories that go around, but all are based on measuring something about your hand. Most go by the height that the tip of your middle finger is above the ground, but some say the seam between your wrist and hand. Measure that and find out where it fits on a chart of club lengths. Probably you would be best fit with something a bit shorter than the standard 43" driver, but it's hard to say. Dave Tutelman's design notes are an excellent resource for figuring out such things.

You are actually average height. You would be able to use a standard shaft, however if you feel uncomfortable you could get custom fit.

45.75- 46 inches. But can be up to 48 inches.

Standard length will be perfect, standard length are usually 45.75" -46". But if you do feel the shaft is a bit short you could get half an inch or an inch added to it.

A good idea is a large headed high lofted (10.5 degrees plus) and a regular flex shaft. There may be a temptation to get a 9.5 stiff and try and hit it as far as you can, but the first driver i suggested will pay dividends in the long term. The driver is a hard club to hit for beginners due to it's low loft and long shaft.

52 what tall? If it is centimeters I wouldn't suggest you play golf. If you are 5'2'' you could still use a standard length driver, or you could get it custom fit to see how long it should be, to best suit your game. If you are fully grown, they may recommend 44'' which is about 1.5'' - 2'' shorter than standard. But you will sacrifice distance.
