    About lofts…

    It’s a bit curious to me that Suzann has a 48 degree wedge, but also an iron set that goes through “PW.” I don’t know if her 48 is bent weak, or her irons are REALLY strong, loft-wise.

    It sort of looks like she has a set of irons that would normally be numbered 3-PW, except that they are numbered 4-PW plus a 48 degree wedge. Fully one club strong, loft-wise.

      that is kind of weird. I’m thinking that her PW is bent to 44. But that is very strong for a forged club. Do women require stronger lofts to make up for their slower swing speed?

    What about shafts?

    This is a pet peeve of mine; that WITB reports from the LPGA never include shafts, flexes and tipping. It’s not really directed to WRX; the LPGA, the manufacturers and others seem to not want to give that info.

    For me, one of the very most interesting things about the LPGA is that I swing much more like Suzann Petterson than Carl Pettersson.

      I agree, average golfer would do better with touring pro women’s equipment than the vast majority of items on the men’s tour. (SHAFTS) to start with….

      So, updating/replying to self…

      Thanks for the update, with good new photos. And for all of your great WITB coverage.

      But… uh, is it just me, not knowing how to read all of the myriad shaft designations nowadays, or are we missing the details on shaft flex?

      I’m not familiar with the Motore Speeder designations. Is 6.3 a weight, a flex pattern, or an overall flex indication?

      I do know that there must be more than one flex for the Diamana D+ 92 hybrid.

      And as for the Nippon N.S. Pro Modus, that is just a brand and a model. I’d like to know what weight and flex. Again, this is one thing I do know about. There are so many production/proto iterations of the N.S. Pro shafts, even a standard product catalog isn’t enough of a scorecard to know what she’s really using.

      All of these inquiries are because I am the sort of golf geek who, um, reads GolfWRX. I’m genuinely interested in the LPGA equipment threads, and I gratified to see others agreeing with me.

        …And a slight edit. Of course the photos of shaft labels is really helpful in most cases. Some of the Fujikuras, and the N.S. Pro iron shafts are unusual in that they don’t lend themselves to easy identification in your standard photos.

        Again, this complaint about LPGA shaft specs is tempered by the fact that at least GolfWRX is making the basic effort to get this info.

        If she can swing the stuff she is swinging and win I guarantee it is (S) flex. No one would buy a Speeder 6.3 in anything less than S because there are a boatload of shafts out there to fit that category. That 6.3 Speeder is the shaft. As far as I’m concerned the best shaft for a moderate transition, swing speed 99-105 in the world. I broke down and bought two of them, one for driver and one for 3 wood and I can see why Suzann’s playing them. Heads and tails above the 6.2 which I found to boardy.
