Square Impact = Best Performance and Feel = Lower Scores!
There are a number of "classic" custom club fitting books that I REALLY should take the time to look at again from time to time. One of these was published in 2011 by Ralph Maltby – a pioneer in custom fitting, and owner of the Golfworks – provider of golf club shafts, grips, assembly materials and fitting tools, and club heads. And author of The Complete Book of Golf Club Fitting and Performance.
So I did a little paging through this book recently. And BANG right at the start was a great thought!
"If we could be so basic as to pick one goal to accomplish in clubfitting …
It would be Squareness Of Hit."
He made the point that it is easy to get hung up in searching for more distance when doing a custom fitting. But that if you look for Squareness Of Hit first, a lot of things fall into place:
- With square hits, the most energy gets imparted to the golf ball – (highest smash factors) – so most ball speed and most distance.
- The squarer the hit, the less curve on the golf ball – smaller shot dispersion?
- With square hits, a golfer gets more solid feel at impact.
Square Impact – better distance, reduced shot dispersion, better feel – better overall results!! I just Love Relearning From The Classics.
