At Four Counties Golf, we can offer shafts to suit all golfers. In today's world of conflicting information, the importance of the shaft and how it affects the golfer is paramount. Many people referred to the shaft as the engine of the golf club this is not really correct as the golfer is the engine - Speed, Tempo, Swing style are generated by the individual. The Shaft is the transmission point or delivery vehicle from the golfer to the clubhead. Many factors are involved but the key one is to deliver the club in the optimum position for the best strike. Maximising the strike potential of the golfer will improve the shot results.
When being fitted using a launch monitor we have a great deal of data and a good club builder will not be focusing on clubhead speed or ball speed, moreover looking at how these are being achieved and the data on the delivery of the clubhead. The shaft in conjunction with the head settings can improve the strike. Shafts come in many specifications but need to work in conjunction with both golfer and clubhead to give the best performance and great feel to the club.
