Graphic - Face Contact Location and Corresponding Strokes Gained

I never heard of GolfStatsCoach, but then again, I go through so much stuff, I might have posted about it and forgotten about it. This is based on rounds of par or better. I wonder how the dispersion changes say for a 20 handicap? I now see the two other posts.

Looks like you are way better off not knowing where you hit it than hitting it fat.

Hosel rockets appear to get the most punishment.

I find it interesting that it appears that the "perfect" strike is where we know it to be (tending to favor toe and high just by a smigden). I thought that high on the face strikes would perform better than ones as they generally have less spin and we know that spin kills distance on driver. Cool graphic though.

Doh, there are two more graphics in the post. If only I paid attention, lol. The other two are for higher handicaps.

Interesting for a 10+ handicap, even if you hit sweetspot, you're already losing strokes. No wonder it's the club I hate so much.

Yep. Data even shows my frustration of golfers whining with their little pushes and pulls that ‘wreck’ their scores. Shut up. Try having the shank as your vastly dominate miss.

I thought it was interesting that shanks effect 73-82 golfers the least and that a scratch golfer loses more strokes from a shank than a mid/high handicap. I figured a scratch would recover better from a shank than others. When I shank a ball, pretty sure it costs me more than -1.13 strokes (guess my shanks are worse than an average shank). Usually a shanked drive for me is lost or OB right, which means I've already lost 2 strokes. Thankfully I only seem to hit shanks when I'm practicing now.

In theory there is no such thing as a shanked drive. You have to have a hosel that will interfere with the ball.  Though I defer to Vinsk on this topic.

You'd be correct. The only way to truly shank a driver is to miss the face completely and catch the ball on the edge. Don't ask how I know that.

Yep. Takes enormous talent to get a wear mark like this!A02E68EB-9806-46BB-A493-74FE56647B46.thumb.jpeg.7a474c624e73018af9e9435e3dc18419.jpeg

The left-handed club is a nice touch BTW. Bravo.

Stick with me here...(all in jest)

This must be from the mirror dimension and if so, the club is right handed and the misses are on the toe!

 

That's some serious "superpower"

I was a bit surprised because when I was watching Erik Anders Lang fit for a Miura golf club the master smith said that the sweet spot is more towards the hosel.

If that were true I’d be a +10 hcp.
