I know that the topic has come up on putting equipment. Would the benefits be similar to irons as well?
Just wondering how the irons would be if you made the clubhead a bit heavier, but put a counter balance in the butt end. I am not a big fan of swing weight concept. I don't get the whole, lets take 14 or 12" as an arbitrary point to say, Ok a club will feel heavier if we add more to the clubhead end. I know there alot going for MOI matched clubs. I personally think, if you want to get a true swing weight, find the true pivot point of the golf swing, maybe that's in the right wrist, you have a flat left wrist at impact, so in theory, any weight added bellow the right wrist will increase heft, above would decrease heft. This is why choking down will make the club feel lighter to a certain degree.
So lets say you work on your golf swing, you just need a bit fine tuning, would lowering the weight at the clubhead allow you to delay release into impact, maybe allow you to shift the hands forward more at impact?
