My average drive is to yards. With my MPH club head speed, I hit 13 of 14 fairways and at around yds. An accepted rule of thumb is that increasing or decreasing the weight of the clubhead by 2 grams will increase or decrease the swingweight by 1 and the same impact would be achieved by adding or subtracting 5 grams to or from the grip and 9 grams to or from the shaft. There are a number of more technically aware clubfitters who have been making all clubs they fit and build to be MOI matched for several years now. Steve February 25,

Every course should not aim to be Augusta. Same with the driver…originally it was C9, moved to D1. MIKE Not at all, that is precisely why I am here and the reason I enjoy helping with as much info as you need is because it is so hard to get good, truthful info about golf clubs what with all the misinformation out there.

In the history of golf equipment, there has swnigweight been a realization that all the clubs in a set should somehow be built so that they all should somehow FEEL THE SAME when we swing each different club.

How big a deal is swingweight? – Golf Clubs – Team Titleist

For several to many years, our clubfitting research has been all about identifying all swing characteristics which have a bearing on clubfitting decisions.

Or, the golfer should find a good clubfitter with whom to work and let the clubfitter guide them in swingweighh selection and determination of what would be the best swingweight to fit their swing. Marni Ines Mar 5, at Actually, it is somewhat interesting that given the fact swingweight was invented some 90 yrs ago, it really was a idfal close attempt at matching the MOI of clubs.


There is no question though that when you swing the club and something feels too light, it becomes very difficult to achieve and maintain a decent level of swing tempo consistency — you tend to always fight being too quick and you are constantly telling yourself to slow down.

Plus swingwsight tape is jdeal to be a lot cheaper than paying a clubmaker to do this work with tip weights or lead powder down the shaft.

Mark January 5, When scientists get involved in this matter of what to do to make all the different length clubs in a set swing with the same effort or feel, they turn to Moment of Inertia. So is there a benefit to not going too light on the static weight of the club? So start this out after the length cut ewingweight new grip installation at around C9 — hit shots over 2, 3, 4 different days to get a feel for the head weight — is it too little are you getting quick, or is it about right or is it a little too heavy feeling?

3 Critical Keys to Increasing Driver Distance

So if a golfer is perfectly matched for his swing force, swing tempo, swing rhythm, swing timing and personal sense of feel to a C8 swingweight at that particular length and shaft weight, he will gain distance and gain shot consistency. Tom Wishon January 5, And, I learned a lot by reading your responses to comments. Nowadays, I have my own company, Cutten Golf, Inc.

I play all Wishons, just got fit for long clubs — driver, FD, 5w and driving iron. WWI had a huge impact at that time.


Proper Swing Weight

If a golfer really needs to have a consistent draw shape on their shot or needs the head to help reduce a slice tendency, that is FAR better done by fitting the golfer into a head with a more closed face angle. Golf stores that sell big company clubs cannot possibly fit in that manner because the business model for all of the major golf companies is and shall always be to sell off the swingaeight so they can sell the greatest volume of clubs.

Hybrids are on the way!

Technically, gripping down on a club will act as if the club is both shorter and lower in swingweight and like the grip is smaller in the hands. Joe Jun 11, at 4: For example, would a slower tempo player who still has decent swing speed like a swinvweight butt, medium butt, or stiffer butt profile.

Tom Wishon October 26, Not only she handled it, she was bashing with it the other girls.

Tom Wishon October 27, With both FD and driver I am fighting a tendency to go right, takes extra effort. MOI matching may also be thought of roughly as building the clubs in iedal set to progressively increase swing weights from long to short irons in the set. Fantastic points altogether, you just received a brand new reader.
