Does the club face position relative to were the body is aimed have any tendencies or influences on how the club head travels in the backswing. Example, would setting up with the club face closed caused a person to want to roll the wrists over?
I hear you Vinsk, I don’t think you’re necessarily wrong per se. I’m sure it’s not black and white. Fitting will probably help people who are egregiously misfit, i.e. using light shafts when they should be using stiff, or are using standard shafts when they’re really tall. And I’m sure it would make a difference for golfers who are good enough to notice slight differences in equipment. But for the 20 handicapper who is using a reasonable proximate of what he or she should be using, I don’t think getting fitted will have dramatic results.
As an aside, I recall Phil saying it would take months to adjust to a different golf ball (I think in relation to a Ryder Cup), which I thought was a bit silly.
Not to sound arrogant, but with that swing I'm quite surprised he was able to achieve the goal. But ... it's clear that swing got the job done.
Myself ... I wouldn't stand a chance. Maybe 10 hours, if given the chance. But certainly not 5.
Well done, Mr. Portnoy.
A set of higher quality, used clubs for sure. Getting them re-gripped is pretty cheap and there are many mid to high end clubs available from numerous reliable sources these days. I love my fellow golfers who suffer from "newzitis" it provides a never ending source of great quality clubs at low prices.
