Most golfers aren’t tuned in to shaft news on a daily basis, and I have to admit that most of the press releases I get pertaining to golf shafts have a tendency to go in one ear and out the other, but when a top-ranked golfer wins with a new shaft nobody’s heard of, people […]

WITB – June 2017

My very first WITB post was written in September of 2015 before I left for the WAGT National Championship in Pennsylvania. Since then a lot has changed.

A Look Back At Club Technology

New clubs promising more distance, better accuracy and better feel seem to be released every 6 months, and the USGA is scrambling to keep a muzzle on any technology that might make the game too “easy” to play.
