Know your build: The best of GolfWRX “how-to” videos

Published

on

It is our goal at GolfWRX to make you smarter golfers, and whether that means learning about better fitting practices, swing mechanics, or the physics of optimizing your equipment, we are here to educate. In the case of educating golfers, my specialty is club building and the ins and outs of how everything goes together, down to the smallest details.

With the offseason quickly approaching for most golfers in the northern hemisphere, there is no better time than now to dive into working on our own gear and learning more about how everything goes together. This is a collection of our top “how to” club building videos so you can brush up those new skills at your own pace.

    Hey Ryan, not clear to me why you measure the length of the club from the heel while there’s a video of Trottie that builds a DJ driver and he’s stating that PGA is measuring the length from the center of the sole, using a similar tool to check it.
    Which is the correct measurement? Thanks.
