Many people think that the shaft is the most important part of the golf club. There are many different kinds of shafts and each is designed for a specific type of swing. Today, Doc's going to explain why the shaft is NOT the most important part of the golf club.
Doc tells a story about a fitting he did in the past that included a golfer who was missing all of his shots to the right. Everything looked good in his swing and even the computer analysis software was showing Doc that the guy had a good swing, he just wasn't able to get the club squared up at impact. What's interesting is that Doc said he gave the man a different club with a smaller head and he started hitting a nice little draw every shot, even though the shaft in that club was the wrong type of shaft for the man. However, even with the wrong type of shaft, the man was able to start hitting some really good golf shots because other things like head design, M.O.I. and length of the club were more accurate than his old set of clubs.
We'll continue with more myths about shafts next week.
