  1. I was hoping someone may know the "standard" (or as good as) head weights for todays clubs but I thank you all for your input.
  2. Dear all, I came across the article/charts below at the weekend ( I know it is few years old). Apart from the length, how do the weights and swing-weights stand up to todays modern clubs. I am more concerned with the bottom chart STANDARD SWINGWEIGHTS CALCULATING THROUGH A SET rather than the SWINGWEIGHT FACTORS chart Are the any other charts for todays more modern clubs out there? Pre-Calculating Swingweight Swingweight Factors Swingweight Change Increase Factor By S.W. Factor Decrease Factor By S.W. Change +1 2 Grams Headweight 2 Grams -1 +3 1/2 inch Club Length 1/2 inch -3 -1 4 Grams Gr
  3. Scotty Heads and putter shafts in general are easy to bend. Just take it along to a pro with a putter loft and lie machine. Take 2 minutes and you can go up to about 5 degrees either way. The shaft is heated and bent in most cases for goose neck. Should only cost $3 or $4
  4. The PGA Tour Superstores will fit you for free and they have a huge selections of used clubs. They will only charge you about $25 on top of the price to change the loft and lie angle. If you want to get an idea of what might fit you before you go, have a look on golfclubshaftreview.com. They have some great charts to help you out. Failing the PGA store, Try Golfsmiths but I'm not sure on their costs. Good luck
  5. Club lengths keep changing over the years. They are getting longer due to a couple of factors, weight and manufactures trying to make clubs go further. Have a look on golfclubshaftreview.com where they have a club length page.
  6. Having a shorter shaft on your driver will give you a lot more control. You may lose some distance but if you are landing on the fairway more often, the question is, 20 yards back or 10 yards in the rough. Remember, the old length for a driver used to be 43 inches. Theses days everything is going longer due to weight. Cut it down, if it feels a little light load it with lead tape. Your pro can always extend it again if you want to lenghten it.
  7. Tour Velvet all day long. Lamkin grips are harder. That is not to say the TV's are a soft grip but I think you will be happy with the Tour Velvet.
  8. If your grips are too big for your hands you will probably end up pushing or slicing on your bad shots. Grip pressure is a big part of golf although, if you have to go with a bigger grip to ease up on the King Kong grip then try it out on 1 or 2 clubs first before you spend $50 or $60 on a full set. Check out the grip size page on golfclubshaftreview.com
  9. Shafts could be too stiff but my first thoughts are that the new Taylor irons are longer than most standard clubs. This could be your issue. Measure them up against your old clubs, if you still have them to se if this is the problem
  10. Hogan Apex PC's. Amazing feel, great shafts if the #4 shafts are fitted. The E wedge was a preat PW which was amazing of tight lies.
  11. Shaft swapping is fairly easy and can be a lot of fun to do yourself. Knowing your equipment is another story. Have a look on golfclubshaftreview.com for some good tips on replacing shafts and shafts specs.
  12. You maybe trying to hit the longer irons too hard. D-Golds are a heavy-ish shaft so you may want to go with lighter. It is all trial and error and costs can go up. If you can go for a club fitting session you should be able to try a lot of different shafts. PGA tour super stores do this for free. Have a look on golfclubshaftreview.com for a good shaft fitting guide.
  13. It is a way of changing the flex of your clubs buy swapping the shafts around. you can make your clubs softer or stiffer. Have a look on golfclubshaftreview.com They have a page dedicated to that subject. Hope this hekps
  14. If you are on the border then my best advise, apart from trying other shafts, is to hard step the regular shaft Have the pro or repair shop cut the tip of the shaft half the three quarters of and inch and then add the lost length to the but end. This may be an added expense but it is a way of getting that in between stiffness. If you are a bit of a DIY expert, you could always do it yourself. Have a look on golfclubshaftreview.com for details on reshafting. Picking th correct shaft is a big question and takes a lot of thought as it can become pricey. ebay is a great way of buying clubs with di
  15. Think about the bad shots rather than the good. Is there a bad shot that you play with either club more often? If so, let me know and I will give you my best advice.
