One question for all of you:

When I got fitted for my driver last summer, the guy in Golf Galaxy told me a stiff shaft would be best for me due to swing speed, which I don't remember the exact number-but it was in the stiff range).

I had always played a regular shaft on my driver, because that's what my irons were (ignorant-huh?).

Now to the question:

Does it make sense to drop down in shaft stiffness when going from driver to 3W or 5W??

Bonus Question: What about mid torques, soft tip, firm tip, etc......

You should go to a "Club Fitter" not store and ask them to find your Ideal CPM and match all your clubs. Try to get similar swingweights where you can too. You don't want a whole lot of flex/weight change through your set because you cant get a Grooved swing when every club requires a different one

Shaft flexes vary between manufacturers, one companies stiff may be on the high end of anothers regular, or a regular on the low end of another companies stiff. I personally play stiff graphite in my driver & 3 wood, regular graphite in my hybrid, and regular steel in my irons. I tried all my clubs with other flex shafts, and these felt and performed the best. It may not be what some experts recomend, but it works for me.

    • What?  I thought you were going to continue the challenge of playing each month.
    • Well, I am glad I can confirm my sleep efficiency is good. I scored a 91% with my Oura Ring and a 95% with the Whoop. Both show over 1-1.5 hours of deep sleep over a total of 7 hours of sleep. 
    • For me, the bottom changes. I don't play on a perfectly flat surface , like a range mat. The course is rolling terrain. Up hill, down hill, side hill, grass height...effects where the club bottoms, sometimes closer to the lead foot, sometimes closer to the rear foot.  I can hit them thin in any position if I don't adjust for that.  
    • I'm 67. I walk and push. I don't listen to music on the course. I get my hour of music daily at home. I don't need the added hassle. Most folks who I am paired with, who do play music, ask if I mind. I always answer no, I don't mind. It's always low.  Crazy thing...9 out of 10 times...they stream the late 60's/early 70's hits of my youth. Often I get offered a hit. lol Growing up in my house, my 33 year old son introduced me to everything from Jack Johnson to Lamb of God. We both play music. There isn't much out there that will offend me. I also don't want to be that old curmudgeon who screams at clouds. I play enough, I see many of these folks multiple times a season.  Its great to see the number of younger golfers on the course these days. Maybe some will stay long after the zombie apocalypse eases. Stay safe and healthy
