G25 Driver Shaft length

Recommended Posts

inthecup    23

I was checking my impact with spray foot powder while hitting on a launch monitor.  I visit the center of the face more often than not but I also visit the surrounding area.  The shaft on the G25 is long, 45.75 according to ping.  I want a shorter shaft for more control.

Is it as simple as choking up or do I need to do something more?

Thanks

I would start by choking down on the club.

You can go and get the shaft cut, but I found that it does make the club feel different (lighter). The swing weight will change. It shouldn't really change the performance of the shaft, just changes how the club feels. For you, you might be taking as much as an inch off the shaft, that is pretty substantial in terms of swing weight change.

Put a rubber band around the end to reinforce choking down. Sometimes you may want the extra shaft length on a wide open par 5. My driver is 45" and I choke down an inch. Your best shaft length may be 43' or 44". Experiment and see. I'd hate to cut down that much shaft though. The black girl (Sedena?? forgot her name) on Big Break last time really choked down on her driver and she bombed it pretty well.

    • New course yesterday and only 30 putts with no 3 putts.  I know the golf gods will get me for that though!
    • You got that right! If your not competing for something, why are you out there? We'll compete for as little if, I beat you, you owe me a beer! There's gotta be something on the line!
    • Took them out to the range and suffered for it, since it got about 90 degrees here! Is this Fall? Actually had to go sit in the shade and drink some water about half way through. Actually got both clubs pretty well straightened out, and hit them for decent distance and direction. Both shafts are labeled R, but felt completely different, the TM shaft feeling much softer. Thus the ongoing shaft nonsense! The Callaway produced a nice, high pitched "crack" when I hit the ball as opposed to the low "thunk" of the TM. The sound of the ball leaving the face didn't seem to have any impact on how the ball flew. I also brought along my current Driver, a Cobra King F6m adjusted to 12 degrees loft. The TM was the "standard" 9.5*, and the Callaway was 11*. I could get more air under my drives, and more carry, with the Cobra than the other two. It was not a huge difference, but there was a difference!  
    • http://www.gamegolf.com/player/Shindig/round/1858113   86 at my home course.  40 first nine, including a chip-in birdie on #9.  46 second nine, including three doubles (#s 13, 14, and 17).   Lost 3.12 off tee, 4.94 on approach, 0.7 on short game (!!!), and 4.94 on putting. Thoughts:  two really bad tee shots, plus a weakling.  Hole #1, pulled into a tree, hole #14, a hook into some trees.  Glad to have not lost a ball on either.  Hole 2, just hit a weak drive.  Other than that, I think my drives were pretty good.  Only other meh one was a slice that came out of nowhere on #18, and then I followed it up with a stupid shot that could have gone into the driving range.   First round with new irons, hit 5 GIR and 5 near-GIR.  Had three holes where my birdie attempt came with a full swing shot (but within 100;  two were full flight gap wedges) that hit the green, so that had to have helped my short game stat.  Putting was unimpressive and I missed enough short ones that my two really good 2-putts (#2, #3) don't really make up for it.  Still, a round where I didn't really feel in control at any point and I played to my handicap.  That's pretty good!
    • Working on driver transition, getting in to out path. Little bunt, then faster, then a little faster. Rinse and repeat. Trying to flight the wedge down, this was fat. Result would be worse on real grass.
