Our resident Master Club Builder Ryan Barath takes you through the process of sanding a parallel graphite shaft down into a tapered one.

This is particularly useful for builds that require a tapered shaft and you don’t have another option, or where you cant ream the head.

    The only thing I’d do differently is to measure the depth of the hosel, then mark that distance up from the tip of the shaft. That way, you know that the taper is enough that the tip has “bottomed out” in the hosel. Also, don’t take the taper too far up the tip, as the top of the hosel would be around .370, and you don’t want slop there. For the benefit of those who haven’t done this before.

Clement: How to nail the first move in your downswing!

Published

on

This first move in the downswing is very much a product of the right focus on a specific task that will engage the body’s “self preserving system” to shift weight on time and clear the hips the right amount to find the direction we want to start the ball according to the flight plan we chose to begin with. To do this well, we need to understand how the weight shifts from the backswing into the downswing as this will prepare the transition to facilitate this engagement. We have such an amazing machine; all we need to do is give it the right simple task! Enjoy this video down memory lane as we have been doing this move since the Bobby Jones days!
