I have a long torso and long arms and very short legs. I have to by extra" long shirts and i can get away with a 29" inseem for pants. I'm just under 5'10" when i get my weight most stable front to back and side to side with slight knee bend with arms hanging down relaxed these are the clubs that sit right
I have had troubles getting clubs that fit being a 3.5 to 4 flat player especially woods and drivers.
I will say that i finally found some. Thomas was one company that claimed to and told me they bent my hybrids flat, but they did not. Wishon golf clubs however, are bendable! the 929hs woods can be bent 4 degrees upright or flat the hybrid 775hs can also be bent that much. If you need upright or flat hybrids and woods wishon is the way to go. They also have some bendable drivers! I have a 3 and 5 wood 4 degrees flat and a 4H at 3.5 flat. Those of you that struggle to find drivers,woods,and hybrids that need to be different from standard, there is finally an answer!!!
I gotta brag. After 3 years and many problems and struggles i finally have clubs that fit me!
Thomas 10.5 driver (cut 2 inches short)(will replace with Wishon driver eventually)
Wishon 3 wood bent 4 degrees flat
Wishon 5 wood bent 4 degrees flat
Wishon 4 hybrid bent 3.5 degrees flat
Ping G15 5--G.W. (gold dot) Wedges adjusted so there is 5 degrees difference in loft between each one
Ping Sand Wedge (gold dot)(adjusted to 55 degree loft)
Ping Lob Wedge (gold dot)(adjusted to 60 degree loft and with a back grind to allow opening of the face better)
I have filled all gaps nicely and finally have the right lie on all clubs. Wedges are spaced apart nicely and the Lob wedge is great after the backgrind.
I've experimented with my putting all winter. I've tried side saddle, arc, sbst, and even hockey style. I've tried wrist putting,arm putting and shoulder putting. I've even experimented with the vision part of putting such as eyes inside the ball, eyes over the ball, eyes in front of the ball, eyes behind the ball, and even finding the line crouching down and not looking after that. I've even toyed with just looking at the hole. My final solution that is working is as follows- Ball lined up inside left heel, eyes 8 inches inside the ball, (I've found that this enables me to see the line to the hole straight, if i put the ball any closer my vision is incorrect and the ball goes right) My eyes do not go straight down, but i see the ball at an angle. These things allow me to see the line correctly the aimer on the putter points toward the hole and that's where it goes. As far as mechanics i have found that rotating my shoulders slightly on wheel helps rather than up and down like a puppet. I make sure to keep the putter on the inside when i swing back which causes a slight arc. I focus on hitting the piece of the ball that the putter head was lined up with before i started my backswing. I hit the ball and hold my hands and arms still almost like a chip and i do not have a big follow through. For distance i just simply hit it harder and swing a little faster. My whole point is to try everything from every perspective until you find what works for you. Everyone's vision and movements are different and there is not one way to do it. Some of the best putters through history had an un-traditional stroke. Experiment and experiment again until you find what works.
