I would like to se you write about the truth about golf equipment. What sucks, and what really helps at different levels.
I think I play just well with Persimmons as I do the new stuff is because I really don’t swing fast enough to take advantage of all that M.O.I. stuff.
The truth is most golf equipment is manufactured in the same building or square block in China. Including the knockoffs.
A little bit of hyperbole, but not much.
Distinguishing between something that is a 5.5 in stiffness and 5.7 is ridiculous. Changing from a D2 to a D3 swing weight…LOL. Even the top pros need a bigger change than that for it to have any appreciable change in performance.
Now if you are making a good golf swing and you are digging the toe of your irons in the ground, you need them bent more upright…and vice versa.
My mantra is if you want to buy new clubs because it’s fun, or you go to the golf store and say, “This club looks great, I can hit this pure,” I am all for that, but buying new clubs to fix a swing issue, or because you think a perfectly matched set to your Trackman numbers are going to improve your game…I say stop.
Your swing isn’t the same from one say to the next anyway, so these “perfect fittings” just get you in the ballpark.
“I need to switch to blades so I can work the ball better. I know with a little more workability I can get my handicap down from a 28 to a 22.”
That is the kind of attitude that prevents people from getting better.
Basically what I am saying is buy clubs for fun and because you think you can hit them good because they fit your eye and don’t fall for the marketing campaigns.
No club is going to hit the ball 30 yards farther or turn your 40 yard slice into a 3 yard draw.
