I agree. As I sped right out of my 60's into my 70's, and came back to golf, shafts have been my first consideration. I have found a bit lighter shaft is best for me, in most clubs. Nippon are my favorite steel. I had my steel shafted clubs one soft-stepped to a Regular Minus. The Project X 5.0 shafts in my more or less usual irons were stock, and felt light and less than Regular flex to me. Now, to get back to playing again...Maybe June? Best to all, -Marv
HehHehHeh! Now that's communication.
When I came back to golf, my instructor and I just could not communicate. He had a whole vocabulary of illustrations of what the swing was like. He would speak an illustration of what the saw or wanted, but I would have go home and Google it until I saw it. I needed to see it and even better, hear someone say what it might feel like, mentally, visually or physically. Finally, we did some video...Oddly, I could both see and feel what he thought needed to be changed as well as when it changed. But then I'm odd. In the end, he moved, and I will find an instructor when I am able to get out again. One with a video setup, Trackman and a sense of humor. Good topic all, -Marv
Day 80 Spent the morning on the putting green doing my 10,000 Putt Challenge. Today I had to make 100 putts from both 3 and 5 feet!! Then to the range to do my GGGA Workbook Technical/Motion Drills to help with my pivot and staying in posture throughout the swing. AND also did my Level 3 Protocol with the Super Speed Training System. Three hours later at home for dinner!! Great weather.
I have attached a picture of the range I use.
Yeas, for sure, it affects your swing. Have you tried a chiropractor and spinal decompression? Also, 2-3 min. stretches using light or medium resistance bands of tubes. All helped me. Best of luck with this, -Marv
