Just wondering if anybody knows anything about shaft weight,I've looked and can't find anything clear on it.My driver shaft weight is 45 grams in a stiff flex,
i have never got fitted but hope to some day.It feels sometimes a bit flimsy
and i find that i have to stay extra smooth with it to stay in control.Does anybody know how shaft weight plays in the shaft whether it be 45 gram or 75 gram e.t.c.Thanks,i just want to know if it would be worth swapping it out with a fitting or just leave it.

In general, bigger hitters prefer heavier shafts. But this is (barely) a general guideline and really is more a matter of taste and preference (as in hard to predict). 45 grams is really light for an S flex shaft - and keep in mind that there is hardly any consistency between various "S flex shafts". And some shafts are (relatively speaking) stiff in the tip with a softer butt end, vice versa, and every thing in between. And then there is torque (resistance to twisting) which is a different parameter. If you have a sense of "this is a bit flimsey" I'd say that there is a good chance that a different shaft (which might or might not be heavier and might or might not be stiffer) would work better for you. A good clubfitter could be very helpful, I would think. dave

    • What I have to do is focus on one shot at a time. Plan the hole from the flag back. That's the plan, but that's based upon hitting a good tee shot. If I don't put the tee shot where I need to, then it's a new hole. The tee shot is behind me. I have a different shot. I may have to hit a banana ball around a tree which I'll try if I'm hitting the ball well. If I'm not hitting the ball so well, I'll punch out. Best to let the game come to you to avoid putting up big numbers. This year will be interesting. I've dropped my LW, gone with a OL 56 wedge and added a 7W.
    • No. We've rolled back to phase 2. Which means no rakes, no ball washers, etc. Bunkers are GUR.   
    • golf courses can help this by keeping the underbrush in the woods cleared. My home course does and it's pretty easy to find a wayward ball unless you hit it way off line. The worst time about lost balls is in the late fall and real early spring when the rough is long and too wet to mow. I just play a 6i off the tee and move up a tee box to keep it on the short stuff.     
    • They could leave the Masters bubble and focus on total career achievements, but maybe that deviates from the intention. Eventually they may have to choose players who only won once. «First on the tee, Patrick Reed!». Or maybe they’ll be off with the whole thing. There aren’t that many multiple winners these days. Phil, Bubba and Tiger are the only ones with wins this millennia.
    • I’ve had my Leupold GX-2 since 2010. Don’t remember the price, but perhaps around $200-300. Not a big investment if divided per year or round. I’ve spent way more on balls. It’s not a replacement for the course guide, which I always want to carry if they got one. The rangefinder is a distance measuring tool and doesn’t show the layout of a hole. Many courses around here doesn’t have much in ways of markers. Typically 200, 150 and 100 meters. So the on-course aid hasn’t been affected by the tools. I used to have to study the guide, look for one of those three markers and try to walk off and guesstimate distances. Now I can focus on my approach, where to aim and quickly get the distances I need. I play faster and better with it.
