    He misses the point on single length clubs.
    Swingweight means NOTHING – no science behind the term: developed by marketing people in the 1930’s. It is a quick and easy test which is fine, but swingweight means nothing to a golf dclub in motion.
    The correct matching criterion is moment of inertia (MOI) of THE ENTIRE GOLF CLUB – not just the head.
    He does present an interesting test – making a single length hybrid. A much better method to add weight is a mixture of shafting epoxy and tungsten powder. Make a thick paste and place the weight where you want it. I have a Wishon 2 hybrid and will give it a try by placing extra weight on the bottom of the club head near the rear to give a high ball flight. I play Wishon Stirling 4-7 and conventional variable shaft length for 8- wedges. Great set much easier to hit long and mid irons. May also try a single length 3 wood!

    All my clubs are “single” length… perfect for my controlled variable swing… and I can’t swing a PW the same as a 7-iron… that’s for duffers who can’t hit even one club properly.

    Interesting primer on hot metal, but it didn’t come close to addressing the headline (written by the editorial staff, surely). In fact, he gave up the quest (which would result in a hybrid the length of his irons, but would also have the same weight and swing weight) immediately, saying he couldn’t do it.

    Awesome video, figured this was coming after the podcast. When are you going to give us a tour of the shop and give us a run down on the tools needed to start building clubs in our own garage?

Clement: Best little video on putting distance control

Published

on

Putting distance control is way easier than you think! We are already geniuses with gravity and when you are able to use momentum, or the weight of the arms and putter as a unit to roll the ball into defined pictures, then you too can have awesome distance control when you putt. What does this mean? MORE PUTTS MADE!! Because on breaking putts, the line means nothing if you can’t get the speed.
