Moe Norman. He’s what differentiates ‘playing golf’ as mental vs physical compared to ‘ability to hit a golf ball well.’
Moe obviously had the physical skill to acquire good ball striking. But it was apparent that Moe didn’t have the mental ability to play professional golf. It may be true that he simply didn’t want to. Either way I suspect it was purely a mental reason why Moe wasn’t a successful touring golf pro.
Current wisdom among clubfitters says to use the lightest, most flexible shaft you can control. If a shaft is too light, you may not be able to feel it at the top of your swing, leading to inconsistency.
We don't know the fitting situation in Stockholm, but allenc gives excellent advice if you can find a Mizuno fitter. Here are some Mizuno shaft upgrades available for no additional cost, several which weigh less than 100 grams.
Many major clubmakers now offer a variety of shafts at no additional costs.
I've played with several head cases but they were always really good players. In fact one of our previous club champs is a head case and when he's on, he's as good as anyone and when he's not he can stink it up, as much as a scratch golfer can stink it up, which is still better then just about everyone at the club.
not sure about sir Charles.
Have a strong mental game. J/K
I run 2 and play in a couple other scrambles every year. Unfortunately unless you are playing in a weird format (step aside scramble) you just have to hit it as close as you can in regulation and make putts. It's really that simple in a straight scramble. You might have the longest driver go last or the best player go last but even with that you have to hit the ball close to the hole and make a few long-ish putts.
